So, What's YOUR Mayor Doing?

View As Web Page

Mine gets arrested...again...for parole violations...from the last time he was arrested.

The violations were minor and really not a big deal, it seems to me. The problem is that he's so hell bent on 'fighting crime' that he doesn't pay all that much attention to the "Law". He was a guy that was pretty well liked, and still is, only now he's supremely polarizing and can barely get anything done because of it. what a waste.

From the Clarion Ledger:

Jackson Mayor Frank Melton turned himself in at Hinds County Detention Center, nearly a week after a judge issued a warrant for his arrest for allegedly violating terms of his probation and Melton checked into a hospital.

"It appears to me that he didn't have any choice," said Jackson resident Ayres Haxton. "You could just sit in the hospital indefinitely or turn himself in and let the chips fall where they may."

Strangely, the paper doesn't mention that Ayres is an attorney (and friend of mine).

I can't believe that the paper doesn't mention that Ayres is a friend of yours.

Help me out here. What was he arrested for? How can sitting in a hospital get him a warrant for his arrest? And, does he recognize the hypocrisy of "fighting crime" as a parole violator?
