The Mayor of Jackson, Mississippi has lost his mind, I have never seen a man with any type of position in public office, act with such reckless intent. Frank Melton's, latest antics have let three thug cop's off the hook, for beating on a handcuffed teenager, yes a lot of prople are saying good job! I say to you if this had been a seventeen year old white boy, handcuffed and beaten, Govenor Haley Barbour would have asked for their termination himself. So to all those idiots who support the Mayor, please know that he has shown the world he has mental problems, and is a compulsive liar, with no slef respect. That equals disaster, and too everybody who is kissing his behind, stay with him when he is escorted out of office! I can gaurantee you it will not be long.

Unfortunately for the black community, Mayor Melton is allowing non-minorities to use him as an example as to why blacks should not hold political office. Yes, there are many minorities who hold public office, but how many of them stand out for all the wrong reasons? Kwame Kilpatrick of Detroit and Frank Melton of Jackson are 2 of the worse politicians...black or white.
Jackson should be facing a very serious lawsuit from the Black family and the Mayor is on telelvision praising the cops that beat him, not too smart is he? When you guys become a city facing one lawsuit after another, look to the mayor when placing blame!
Mayor Melton has become the poster child for how Mayors should not behave while in office.

There are several perspectives to consider in regards to Mayor Melton's Jackson city officers beating on a handcuffed teenager. First, to settle the obvious. It was obviously a careless and pointless act. That's a given. However, let us ask, what did that teenager do to get himself in handcuffs in the first place? What was the situation that led officers to lose their control? Does this kid have a long history of crimianl or violent crimianl behavior?

Not that the answers to these questions can somehoe absolve cops from perfroming acts of relative brutality because they can't. Yet, most street cops I've known who deal with gangs and teenage criminals seem to gain quite an edge after years of being attacked themselves by 14 year olds who make more in one week selling crack than their captain does in 6 months.

Mayor Melton is trying to show tough love to his city's youth and it's gonna sting and burn a little. Meantime, let' talk about the hundreds of kids he employs and sends to college on his own nickel. This guy obviously cares about his people and the city. We got our soldiers in Iraq killing hundreds of innocent civilians every week in the name of freedom while one lone man gets a little tough on his own people in order to help and you guys want him out. Why not give him a little more time, it's not like he's out there killing kids and bombing YMCA's.

He is a very very stupid individual. He thinks since he has a little power he can do whatever the hell he wants somebody gone get his ass and then what is he gone do show up at thier house to with his guns. He didn't even see the whole Christian Brother Hood apartments just the bad side now he wants to shut them down. I don't like him i can't stand him and i wish he would touch one of my kids i'm going to show him something. He was put in office to be mayor not to replace GOD.

So do we wait until he DOES kill someone, or cause someone's death? It is coming. One of these nights, when he has these boys out way after the city-imposed curfew, one of them is going to get hurt or killed. Will we have your permission then to worry about the crazy crap going on in our city? And why, for some, does everything have to have something to do with Iraq? Stop throwing out the red herrings, because those of who have to live with this crazy mayor don't need to have Iraq thrown into this conversation.

Frank Melton was at the Farish Street Festival with his usual companions, I wonder what type of trouble he will find to get in next, dont worry it is comming. Unfortunately Jackson has elected a man with very limited skills, as it refers to running the city. On the other hand, maybe he should consider runing for sanitaion supervisor, he seems to love trash.

Frank Melton has a severe mental condition, that he is unaware of. Anybody that thinks it is okay to violate the rights of citizens by allowing beatings to occur, and tear down houses just because, should be locked up. Mayor Melton should step down as mayor.

Give 'em hell Mayor!! Stir it up...at least you are getting a reaction and waking people up to see how their city is decaying around them as they routinely go about their daily lives or simply move away...as the tax base erodes.

And he is only helping the decay and the tax base erosion to happen faster. He is literally giving the citizens of Jackson hell. How ludicrous to applaud the man for waking people up by contributing to the problems. You do not fight crime by being a criminal, and you don't help young black males by turning them into criminals with you. Funny how no one seems to be bothered by the fact that the "entourage" that helped him at a so-called drug den and an out of control nightclub is made up of minors who should have been at home.

IT IS PEOPLE LIKE YOU THAT STROKE HIS EGO, AND HE TAKES IT AND RUNS WITH IT. MAYBE HE SHOULD SHOW UP AT YOUR DOOR AND KNOCK IT DOWN, TO LET THE IGNORANCE OUT. FRANK MELTON IS A PAIN IN THE BUTT FOR THE CITY OF JACKSON, WITH LUCK HE WILL BE INDICTED FOR HIS LATEST ANTICS!

It is because of people like you that this nut case continues to show how ignorat he is. If you agree that it is alright to violate the civil rights of others, you have your own set of problems to deal with. Frank Melton should do the same thing you did, tuck his tail and run. We do not need any one with the mentality you have in Jackson, Mississippi. Oh and when we get rid of this fruit loop we call Mayor Melton, and get crime reduced the proper way dont come back. One final note! when someone rapes a member of your family, or car jacks you remember you said crime is okay! don't call the the police, call your buddy Frank,and tell him it is akay because you know he is fighting crime. Be gone!

The only hell Frank is going to be dishing out is a hell of a lot of pain, he is going to feel when the inmates get through with him. Frank drop the soap!
