Thompson Appeal to Stop JPSO Subpoena Denied

An appeal to the Louisiana Court of Appeal, Second Circuit in Shreveport by the Town of Jonesboro’s controversial mayor Leslie Thompson’s attorneys to quash a subpoena in the ongoing criminal investigation of the mayor by the Jackson Parish Sheriff’s Office (JPSO) has failed.

The court noted:

On the showing made, the exercise of this Court’s supervisory jurisdiction is not warranted.

See here the document.

Attorneys for Thompson were Louis Scott and Carol Powell-Lexing. Representing the State of Louisiana was Second Judicial (Bienville, Claiborne, Jackson parishes) District Attorney Jonathan Stewart.

Last we heard from this case was the 10/04/11 ruling by 2nd JD Division A Judge Jenifer Clason that the subpoenas were valid. That was the same day that Thompson was arrested in the courtroom of the Jackson Parish Courthouse for alleged simple battery against Jonesboro Alderwoman Renee Stringer.

See here the motion to quash.

    Is Leslie’s gravy train fixing to take him on down the road to the Grey Bar Hotel? Choo Choo, the train’s leaving the station….all aboard.

    Have a special seat for Leslie….and his band of three merry men.

    Rev Dill, you are going this time….you will need to locate another job. Maybe Debra Jackson needs an assistant….

    Aryan Nations – January 14th 2012
    Seek Justice and Bring Facts for Jonesboro Taxpayers

    When Aryan Nations was contacted and asked if we could come to town to oppose the NAACP who was called in by Mayor Leslie Thompson because he is unable to account for nearly $400,000 of taxpayer money and is crying “RACISM” rather than face the music, we applied for a permit to counter the NAACP and the Mayor on January 14th. The Jackson Parish Police Jury denied all parties their first amendment right to assemble.

    Regardless: Aryan Nations knows what the first amendment to the U.S. Constitution says, and we will be in Jonesboro at 500 E. Street on January 14th just before noon. We won’t be bringing thousands like the NAACP promised to do. We don’t need to do that. We do believe that the White population of Jonesboro wants to, and needs to, see our presence and hear our message. We are not coming to infringe upon anyone’s constitutional rights, but simply to exercise ours, visit your community and bring a message that we believe is long overdue for the majority of most Anglo Americans.

    For instance; this is just a small amount of information from The Color of Crime Report, Race, Crime, and Justice in America Second, Expanded Edition, 2005. It’s major findings were that.
    Police and the justice system are not biased against minorities.
    Crime Rates
    Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
    When blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife.
    Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate.
    The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is black and Hispanic.
    Interracial Crime
    Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
    Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
    Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
    Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.
    Only 10 percent of youth gang members are white.
    Hispanics are 19 times more likely than whites to be members of youth gangs. Blacks are 15 times more likely, and Asians are nine times more likely.
    Between 1980 and 2003 the US incarceration rate more than tripled, from 139 to 482 per 100,000, and the number of prisoners increased from 320,000 to 1.39 million.
    Blacks are seven times more likely to be in prison than whites. Hispanics are three times more likely.

    Funny how most, if not all, the children and women who have made national headlines by being raped and murdered this past year were killed by WHITE men. Let’s look at the most recent little girl who was bludgeoned to death and then cut up in pieces…hmmm…WHITE guy.

    So, please don’t come on here spewing your stupidity. We don’t need you or the NAACP bringing hate to this town.

      Amen. The devil knows no color….the evils in our world are from the devil.

    • sunrisesunset Says:

      So what that you have given one statistic about a white crime. What is important is the proportion in statistics given by the Ayran Nations in their blog above. The ratio is very far apart between black crime and white crime. Ayran Nations is not spewing stupidity…..just stating facts.

      I think they can enlighten many whites if they, do indeed, come to Jonesboro.

    FYI-the Hate is already here, it is at City Hall. It has been perpetuated by one man that has been the most successful at destroying a town and race relations in the History of Jackson Parish along with his allies.

    don’t show your ignorance on this website. bring all of your problems to 500 east street jan.14 and talk them out like civilized people that i know we all can be.if not be prepared

    • Joke Says:

      Showing ignorance, that is displayed by a felon that writes on topix non stop trying to keep racial division going at any cost. A felon that knows no other means by which to keep things stirred up and try to divert attention from his idol’s ignorance. Guess the tape making business is slow these days so it’s time is spent using town’s internet servers spewing hate and threats…..more wasted tax dollars.

        Who is this “felon” you mention? “Tape making business” is what the Rev Dill does… talking about the Mayor’s assistant?

    be prepared for what? are you making threats? cause it sure sounds like you are.and what if people dont come out to your B***t gathering then what?

    Remember…the Ayran Nation and the NAACP are just like each other.

    One can not exist without the other.

    I believe they are really strange bedfellows who meet with each other to keep both groups going …..need to stir up the hate so each group can grow….

    Then they slap each other on the back as they sit counting their money!
