Rumble in the Jungle
Last night there was a shooting and today there was a stabbing. Things have gotten totally out of hand at Frank Lee Homes, apparently the new site for boxing. So many black people were out that one would have thought it was Juneteenth. Everyone and their momma was out fighting (literally). In the midst of the hand to hand blows, some coward decided to bring a knife to a fist fight. If you can't hang with the big dawgs then stay on the porch which is exactly where I was when the police came over to attempt to bring order to the chaos. One of my sources told me that the fights stemmed from jealousy. Apparently, this person is sleeping with that person and the person that's telling it all let them use his bedroom. Another person said that there were some adult males that journeyed all the way from Hattiesburg to get this fight going and another person just said they didn't know what was going on. Everyone from drillers (off-shore workers) to dealers were going at it and it wasn't a pretty picture. By the time I arrived on the scene, there was a woman (I'll call her Mustang Sally) walking very fast and she actually went to the person's door to start a fight. She was knocking on the door, yelling "Come out bitches, I'm wooping children and all." If nothing else, that's a bold (shut your mouth.) I don't know the entire story, but if and when I find out more details, I will share them with you. Chief Hobson and his team of officers stayed around to subdue the crowds. There was talk that someone had a gun and had ran off into the field behind Frank Lee Homes. Later the Lamar County Sheriff's Department came to help with the outbreak and before leaving, they had a young man in handcuffs, taking him to the county lock-up. It's the 26th of January, I can't imagine what's going to happen when school's out.
