Anti-corruption group to make stop in Jackson Tuesday

November 6th, 2012 No comments

Protests of every kind imaginable are common on Election Day, and things won’t be any different in Jackson.

Lawless America, whose website says is intended to root out government and judicial corruption, will be in town somewhere, though the website doesn’t say exactly where or when.

The itinerary (posted here) says members will start the day in Baton Rouge, so it’s likely it will be at least after lunch before they arrive in Mississippi. If the group holds form, whatever protest it has planned will occur near the Capitol or near the Gartin Justice Building, which houses the Mississippi Supreme Court and the Mississippi Court of Appeals.

One of Lawless America’s more ambitious projects is its plans to stretch a ribbon of yellow crime scene tape in front of government buildings across the country. Scenes from each of its protests are being compiled into a movie, too. Again, it’s not clear if the group plans to make its stop in Jackson a part of either project, but it’s a possibility.

The group also maintains a database on officials by state that it considers to be corrupt, or at least less than honest. Mississippi’s list includes leaders from both parties, attorneys and judges. It can be viewed here.
