Where was the police chief? On another vacation? Fundraiser?

The information was old and outdated...... Modern day gangbangers have no rules and have no hierarchy for the most part.....
Gangs in Jackson are unique since the influence from Memphis and Chicago.... Truth is they cannot be eliminated but they can be controlled, it just takes a lot of work and support from the State, City, County, Courts, and DA. Nobody will accept ownership of the problem so the problem gets overlooked and ignored.......
People always say east Jackson is such a bad place, however most shootings take place north of Parkway ?

What a dog and pony show. Everybody knows there are no gangs in Jackson, just ask the JPD. That is what they've been telling people for years.

There have been recent reported crimes in the Jackson TN area regarding Real Estate workers. Anyone in this type of business should have Mace & a stun gun on their person at all times when out showing property, something they can get their hands on quick. There is website that is owned & operated by a local West Tennessean, and it can be found at www.keepsafe247.com . All items sold there are discounted.

Don't think they are north of parkway but not sure the MOST are in East Jackson either. Seems there have been plenty in West Jackson -- Hollywood Apts area is included in this.

I hope so. Used to hear police chief on radio or see him on the news. At least, I new what he looked like. The current one could walk in my house and I wouldn't have a clue who he is - I don't even know his name. He's that silent - his name isn't even used in the media.
