Happy new year folks! Unfortunately 2015 went out with a bang:

Lawsuit: Toddlers sexually assaulted while in Hancock DHS custody ~ Margaret Baker and Wes Muller

This is no run of the mill sexual molestation folks, not when a 3 year old gets gonorrhea. With all the news of late that Gov. Phil will finally be tackling the cesspool that is the foster child industrial complex in Mississippi, albeit under the threat of contempt of court, maybe something will be done to clean up social services at DHS, which has been a major disaster in Hancock County especially.

Breaking bad????

Former college dean to plead in meth case ~ Robin Fitzgerald

I think an overdue 2015 victory lap maybe in order:

What Each State Googled More Than Any Other State In 2015 ~ Ryan Nickum

Speaking of the Ashley Madison Hack, the two posts Slabbed did linking the Pastebin data dumps in late August each nabbed in excess of 100,000 page views, easily making them the most trafficked posts ever here.

Earlier in 2015, Estately did an article on each States most embarrassing Google search and I though Mississippi had an interesting list.

MISSISSIPPI: Gonorrhea / chlamydia / feet photos (image search) / penis enlargement / male enhancement / R. Kelly (musical performer) / Aryan Brotherhood / Blind Melon (band)

And this brings us full circle to DHS:

Gov. Bryant Taps Justice Chandler to Lead Overhaul of Child Welfare System ~ R. L. Nave

Finally, the resignation of Angola Warden Burl Cain in the aftermath of some good investigative reporting by the New Orleans Advocate has the Louisiana muckraking community buzzing along the same lines we are here in Mississippi over the Chris Epps investigation. 2016 promises to be busy that way.

  1. I can personally attest to the fact that “Warden Burl Cain” is WHITE TRASH VERMIN SCUM, and that he belongs in prison, himself. While I don’t want to beat a “dead horse”, Cain and several of his “Goons from Angola” brutalized and tortured me at Camp Amtrak in the aftermath of KATRINA. None of them, Cain included, have been brought to justice, although obstruction of justice, ie. the “cover-up”, continues to this very day, meaning that under “the Doctrine of Continuing Offenses” the criminal cases against these miscreants have not yet prescribed. The names of some of Cain’s co-conspirators are: Colonel Eric Sivula, Lt. Col. Lamartiniere, and Lt. Matt Reed, all CRIMINALS who worked for the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola. Would that there was ONE “honest” State of Federal “law enforcement officer” (a non-sequitur) here in the New Orleans area. Ashton O’Dwyer.

  2. When will Marine patrol chief Keith Davis give someone his position and take a long retirement with his family. He should run for president and not Donald trump.

  3. License to steal! Not to mention how the feds missed finding this activity. Misusing federal seizure money is a gateway crime, or maybe just an indicia to be sure to look carefully at everything?

    Entire Florida police department busted for laundering millions for international drug cartels

    After the Department of Justice busted the Bal Harbour PD for misspending seized money to pay police salaries, the Miami-Herald began deeper investigations and found a much bigger pool of money that was never noticed by the feds.


    1. The war on drugs is an abysmal failure and that story illustrates why. Exactly who are the good guys?

      Back in the archives I covered drug cartel money laundering a time or two. The bottom line is this kind of BS is only possible when possessing a substance is criminalized, Alcohol prohibition being the most recent glaring example.

      Legalizing Cannabis would go a long way towards defund organized crime organizations like the narcotics cartels.

      1. Yeah, then there is the federal war on alcohol drinkers during prohibition.

        It’s not collateral damage when you kill the target.

        The little-told story of how the U.S. government poisoned alcohol during Prohibition with deadly consequences.

        Frustrated that people continued to consume so much alcohol even after it was banned, federal officials had decided to try a different kind of enforcement. They ordered the poisoning of industrial alcohols manufactured in the United States, products regularly stolen by bootleggers and resold as drinkable spirits. The idea was to scare people into giving up illicit drinking. Instead, by the time Prohibition ended in 1933, the federal poisoning program, by some estimates, had killed at least 10,000 people.
