The Clarion-Ledger Editorial, 6/14/7

Jacksonians have lots of heat and light to share about crime in Jackson, if comments on’s StoryChat is an indication.

Jackson officials – including Mayor Frank Melton and Police Chief Shirlene Anderson – should take heed.

If Jackson is to have effective crime-fighting, the public must be engaged. Melton has paid lip service to this idea, but has not been a great supporter of the crime summits that he once promoted. That should change.
