Previously on SBPDL: Life in 90% Black Jackson, MS: New Black Power Mayor Promises It Will be “Most Radical City on the Planet”

 

Jackson, Mississippi is 90 percent black. It’s the capital city of the great state of Mississippi. It hasn’t had a movie theater operating in the city for 19 years. [Jackson without movie theater years after last one closed: Theaters face competition from Redbox, Netflix, WAPT.com, November 2, 2017]

If Wakanda were real, it should exist in this 90 percent black city dominated by black elected – and appointed – officials in every branch of government and throughout the bureaucracy, right?

But western civilization is barely alive in the city, the only reminder it once existed in Jackson found in the abandoned buildings and infrastructure whites long ago built and left behind once the last vestiges of the universally maligned Jim Crow disappeared.

But the post-Jim Crow world of now 90 percent black Jackson, devoid of a movie theater for going on 19 years, seems to prove virtually every long held stereotype of blacks in America… doesn’t it?

Enter Charles Ponthieux, a 52-year-old white man who managed Top Dollar Pawn in 90 percent black Jackson. On his way home from work, he was murdered on Feb. 22 by two black males. Six months later, there are no leads, but the violence in 90 percent black Jackson, MS is only getting worse. [Her dad was killed in Jackson. She’s scared his case will be buried by rising homicides, Mississippi Clarion-Ledger, July 22, 2019]:

The sun had set by the time the manager of Jackson’s Top Dollar Pawn closed up shop on Feb. 22.

Like he did every day, 52-year-old Charles Ponthieux called his wife of 33 years to let her know he was leaving work. Instead of going directly home in Madison, he was looking forward to meeting his family at a grocery store that day.

His young granddaughter wanted him to be there for a special moment — when she exchanged the coins she had spent months collecting into bills for a Disney World trip.

“He was her best friend,” said Emilie McEachern, Ponthieux’s middle daughter and the child’s aunt.

Ponthieux never got to the store.

Ponthieux’s death is one of 54 homicides Jackson Police Department detectives have investigated in the first six months of 2019, which has been shaping up to be one of the bloodiest years Mississippi’s capital city has seen.

The pawn shop manager’s family wonders whether the mounting homicide rate is stretching investigators thin and preventing more resources from being focused on solving his case.

Meanwhile, plans for the Real Time Crime Center, which city officials pitched as a game-changing crime fighting tool, are at a standstill as Jackson searches for funding. 

Originally, Jackson’s mayor announced in January that Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant had pledged millions of dollars to support the new program.

But Jackson Police Chief James Davis told the Clarion Ledger on Wednesday that Jackson did not receive any funding from the state. The city is looking to other sources for the estimated $3 million to $5 million startup cost for the Real Time Crime Center, where law enforcement could monitor a network of cameras that watch the city.

‘We are living in a nightmare’

Ponthieux’s trip from the pawn shop to the grocery store was abruptly cut short by a crash at the intersection of Hanging Moss Road and Forest Avenue.

There, two men in an ATV had run a red light. Ponthieux’s pickup truck crashed into them. Ponthieux got out to see if the two men on the ATV were OK, McEachern said. Then he picked up his phone to call police.

The other men started arguing with Ponthieux because they didn’t want to involve the authorities, she was later told. When the pawn shop manager turned his back on them, one or both opened fire on him.

The men fled. Five months later, the family still doesn’t know who the killers are.

“My dad is a good person. He didn’t deserve to be shot and die in the middle of the street,” McEachern said. “He was a family man. He never bothered anybody. He was kind to everybody.”

A spokesman for the Jackson Police Department told the Clarion Ledger there are no updates in the investigation into Ponthieux’s killing.

The victim’s family is frustrated by the lack of progress.

McEachern took to social media to voice her concerns on July 6.

“We can’t stand by and be patient any more, McEachern wrote in her Facebook post, which has been shared about 6,500 times. “We are living in a nightmare where murderers go free, the community is afraid to speak, and innocent people are gunned down in the street.”

Ponthieux was to his family what an engine is to a car, his daughter told the Clarion Ledger.

Ponthieux was always there for McEachern and her siblings to offer life advice, resolve conflicts and tell a joke, she said.

“We all joked we called him 1,000 times a day. We didn’t know how he got work done because were we always calling him,” McEachern said. “….He was the life of the party. He was so funny and so compassionate and so caring.”

She begged for anyone with information about the incident to call Crime Stoppers at 601-355-8477. There’s a reward for anyone with information that leads to an arrest.

She said a JPD representative recently called her family to assure them the case would not go cold and they would get justice for Ponthieux. Other than that, McEachern said communication from police has been almost nonexistent.

“Every time you turn on the news, there’s another person murdered and that’s terrible,” McEachern said. “…It just feels like my dad’s case is getting buried under the fact that so much violence happens in Jackson.”

Do you need to be reminded Jackson, MS, the 90 percent black capital city of the state, has had a movie theater operating within city limits for 19 years?

Rest in peace, Charles Ponthieux. May your family find some peace.

And reminder: Wakanda isn’t real. The quality of life – and perilous state of western civilization – found in Jackson, Mississippi is proof of this.

    Police arrived on the scene shortly after 10:30 p.m. and found four victims injured; one was shot in the upper chest, another in the leg. The two other patients were grazed by bullets according to police. Investigators say two groups got into some type of altercation and someone fired four rounds from a 9-millimeter pistol.

    Being hit by 9mm in the upper chest: Just a flesh wound.

    He had gotten a false sense of security from working around them so long that he forgot, or never acknowledged, the facts of dealing with car accidents in the ghetto.

    Why he would have gotten out of his car and/or mentioned calling the cops is beyond me. He had to know that most likely the ATV was stolen and the guys had felony warrants. Who knows how much dope they had on them at the time. But we do know for sure they had a gun on them, most likely stolen. It’s a tragedy but a Darwin award all the same.

  11. I agree with all the points you and others have made. Warrants, drugs, no licence, no insurance, stolen ATV’s, and guns. Even so, even though he should have taken these likely scenarios into account, he was probably not thinking straight. He probably thought he needed to call the cops to avoid some kind of insurance scam. I’d say he just foolishly assumed they were legal and “clean” and was afraid they’d drive off and later claim he hit them and fled the scene but “dey got da tag numba!” and would have lying “witnesses” to back their story up. Here comes the Ghetto Lottery! Unfortunately, for him, the worst case scenario happened.

    I seriously doubt Jackson, Mississippi has redlight camera’s that would have caught what happened.

    Anyway, as you so rightfully pointed out- Darwin award.

    Flesh wound… nonsense.

    But a weapon in the hands of someone who can’t shoot is about as effective as a tennis racket at a baseball game.

    Two grazes, a leg and a chest shot? It’s called ‘spray and pray’ and it’s performed by most street thugs and many poorly trained cops.

    ‘In the chest’ is meaningless. Take one through the heart or lungs and come back to talk to me.

    Accoerding to the self-righteous blowhard and broken record, Sean Hannity, and all the other race-denialists at Fox News and in the “cuck”-neocon establishment, the hellish conditions in Jackson and all other black-majority cities has nothing to do with race and innate racial group differences. Jackson is a hell-hole not because it’s 90% black but because it’s ruled by democrats and “liberals” and any white who says or thinks otherwise is a “racist” and “white supremacist.” On Monday, August 19, Hannity denounced “evil, insane white supremacist,” “white supremacist bigoted jackasses,” etc., and their “sick twisted evil ideology,” ad nauseam. “No conservative is a racist and white supremacist,” “true conservative hate and deplore racists and white supremacists,” I paraphrase.

    Unsurprisingly, he never says what he means by “racism” and “white supremacy,” or meantions names. Is he referring to real Nazis and KKK types, a miniscule fraction of the tens of millions of whites who voted for trump and who have no power and influence. Or is he referring to race-realists and white advocates like Jared Taylor and to Amren and Vdare and the likes of John Derbyshire, Peter Brimelow, James Kirkpatrick, Gregory Hood, Paul Kersey, and all those with the same ord similar views on race and nonwhite immigration?

    A pawn shop to boot, that guy had to know the score of what was going on around him in Jackson. Most of the pawn shops in S. Florida have a double door entry that you have to be buzzed in & out of. You get buzzed in the front door, walk into a cage, and only when the front door closes behind you, will they buzz the cage door open, and all the clerks are openly carrying guns. They buzz you out when you leave as well.
    There is a national chain of pawn shops called Cash America, or Top Pawn who doesn’t use the 2 door system because they want the customers to feel welcome, guess which pawn shops are always getting robbed?

    • Agree: HT
  17. @J1234

    1. If the report is correct, turning his back was incredibly foolish, you’re right.
    2. MS is hot, too hot probably to wear body armor all the time, which is what he should have been doing in such a place, in such an occupation.

    The problem is that if you’re that close, and the demon decides to pull out a gun, having one yourself doesn’t put you even, it puts you still one step behind (and you are hoping that the clown’s accuracy is terrible.)

    There really is no way to protect yourself adequately once you are in the presence of someone so vile. There was a time when people tried to eliminate such risks by segregation, but now that’s verboten.

    Avoidance
    Alertness
    Acceptance.

    The third is acceptance that even if you avoid and are alert, bad things still can come at you. Accepting this is necessary to preparing appropriately.

    Since he operated a pawn shop in a 90% black city, I can guarantee that much of the pawned merchandise he had for sale was stolen. There’d be no point in asking the “customers” where they got the items they were pawning. Additionally, I doubt many victims of theft even bother to report the theft to the police since the chances of recovering said items would be microscopic. Plus, they’d have to have the serial numbers of the items stolen or have them engraved with their names or otherwise have them marked in some fashion that would conclusively identify their ownership. Besides, who’s going to go marching through every pawn shop in town on the off chance they might find their belongings?

    Believe it or not, Jackson MS police claim they make arrests in an above average fraction of murder cases:

    The Jackson Police Department has a current “solvability or clearance rate” of 77.5 percent, according to Chief Lee Vance. The national solvability rate is 64.1 percent.

    Per this site, the national “clearance rate” for such crimes is 61.6% (slightly less than the 64.1% give above).

    So re finding the killer, things could be worse for this family.

  25. Diggs says:

    The two black guys probably “axed” the white man for some ridiculous discount on an item in the pawn shop, or they attempted to get cash for some obviously stolen goods, in both cases the owner clearly and firmly refused.

    Feeling “dissed”, the only obvious and appropriate punishment was to kill the white man. What else?

  26. @Sick 'n Tired

    Spot on, as always one could expect from you.

    LoL yeah at pawn shops with no 2 door system.

    Your welcome to come in and rob us, too….

    Worst case scenario? The Nikes run off with $500-$1000 at best and possibly a misdemeanor homicide, depending on person murdered. The insurance will cover the cost of the cash theft. The death, if an employee is murdered in the process, will more than likely become an external cost that the family ends up picking up the tab on, not the business itself. I’d never take the risk of taking a job like that anywhere if it doesn’t have sufficient security protocols installed and if I couldn’t personally open carry myself at said job. Not in this day and age, that’s for sure!

  27. @Non PC Infidel

    who’s going to go marching through every pawn shop in town on the off chance they might find their belongings?

    Easy way to fix that:  make every pawn shop post pictures of the goods they take in on a website.  If you’ve reported something stolen and it pops up on that website, you not only can go get it back, you’ve got the thieves dead to rights.

    You’d also put a hole in the pawn shop business.  Making it so that blacks can’t fence their stolen goods would eliminate much of the incentive to steal anything they can’t use.

    Hey! Weren’t you one of the kids in that old Star Trek episode where the Enterprise went to a planet where the kids were the product of an experiment to extend life but it killed off all the grown-ups? The kids lives were drastically extended and they were all about 300 years old. However, once they finally hit puberty, the disease would manifest and they’d develop huge purple blotches on most of their bodies, go insane, become violent and then slip into a coma and die. Adults were called “grups.”

    One kid: I got two jobs! Teacher and policeman!

    All the other kids: Bla bla blah…..bla bla blah….bla bla blah!

    Thank you for the share, fnn! I’ve read Putnam’s superb speech many times, but I did not know an audio of it was so readily available. The speech is a tour de force, and far more powerful in the original audio than in written form. Putnam’s oeuvre remains a powerful, and still timely introduction to race realism. While this speech is very much set in the context of the time, it is remarkably, tragically, prescient.

    To me, the most profound argument comes at about 42.30…

    “Any race that’s held back by segregation is held back by associating with itself; and such a race had better do something about itself, instead of demanding that another race also be held back by associating with it.”

    58 years later, these words ring so sadly true that one cannot help but mourn. Five decades of forced integration has not advanced the black race to any significant degree (save for a small subsection of affirmative action beneficiaries). But, man has it held back the white race: monumentally.

When we did not need 2 to 3 million dollar “programs” to keep law and order and fight crime?? When the ordinary everyday police force of your everyday city was enough to prevent or “fight” crime?? Why is there always “money for programs” needed for this group of people, when most other groups never needed them to stay or become civilized??

    Of course the problem is enormous, as you suggest.

    Political culture in America is debased and dishonest (see also comment #18) — few public figures have the integrity to tell the truth, even if they see it around them every day, and are smart and curious enough to discover the reason for it (HBD) — the truth is that Blacks are a net drag on the country; there can be no doubt about that — think about the large fraction of black men incarcerated during what is, or should be, the most economically productive period of their lives — instead they enormously increase the cost of the criminal justice system, and their crimes result in personal and financial loss for others — affirmative action in higher education admissions and government employment both artificially sustain a black middle class.

    Took over the street (well, Route 21… main artery) pulling wheelies and causing general aggravation to those behind them. I was lucky enough to be immediately behind them.

    No incidents and they vanished as quickly as they appeared and I was on my way.
