CraigsList Sales the Safe Way.

You can find some smoking deals online. Furniture, cars, and fishing supplies, among a plethora of other items are available.  But along with hot deals comes the potential for shady dealings.

However, Rankin County has a solution. The Rankin County Sheriff’s Office and multiple police departments in the area are creating “Safe Zones” for online “Craigslist” type transactions in the parking lots of at the Sheriff’s Office and police stations.

Rankin County Sheriff, Bryan Bailey, and many of the local police chiefs in Rankin County are encouraging the public to use the agencies’ parking lots and/or lobbies for their online transactions when a face to face meeting and exchange is required.

Many of these locations are under 24-hour video surveillance and have a constant flow of law enforcement personnel at all hours.

“We believe that this will prevent robberies and violent crime, and we hope this will make our citizens feel safer,” said Sheriff Bailey. “Providing these ‘Safe Lots’ are something positive we can do for our community at absolutely no cost.”

The following locations may be used;

Rankin County Sheriff’s Office in Brandon

Brandon Police Department

Pearl Police Department

Flowood Police Department

Florence Police Department

Pelahatchie Police Department

Reservoir Police Department

“Indecent things with Animals…” Cochran vs. McDaniel, Round 13

You can witness, firsthand, political hay being made!

The Clarion Ledger has the video on its website of Cochran’s now infamous reference to animals.

The link above is the video of Senator Cochran’s speech at Forrest General hospital.  Senator Cochran’s campaign has new vigor and he is making the rounds, glad-handing the people and being folksy… campaigning, finally.

In an attempt to relate to residents of the Mississippi Pine Belt, Cochran recalled spending holidays in rural parts of the area visiting relatives, picking pecans and doing “all kinds of indecent things with animals.”  It got laughs and Cochran, himself, smiled as he tied his memories into why the locals should support him.

Now the McDaniel campaign is claiming this to be a Freudian slip; proof that the septuagenarian Senator is losing it or worse, some horrific admission to harming small woodland and/or farm creatures.

Watch for yourself and make your own conclusions.
