She's Number 1 - hey!
This week's "thug" is actually now THE most arrested person in Shelby County. Kimberly, or Kim as the officers like to call her, Johnson, has been booked into the Shelby County jail 224 times. Kimberly replaces Larry Wayne West as the number 1 most arrested person because, unfortunately, Larry is no longer with us. Larry had almost lapped Kimberly, as he had been booked 449 times into the "glamour slammer", but alas, Larry met his demise while trying to navigate, of all streets - Getwell. It seems he didn't see the motorcycle, and his last act was an attempted street crossing...I don't think Larry ever got well.
Meanwhile, back to Kim. This "lady" has been very active, and I noted in many of the affidavits, she is described by the arresting officers as a "mental consumer." I've never really liked that term, I much prefer wacko because I like truth in advertising. If you've been arrested a gazillion times, yep, you are certifiably crazy. Kim does not dissapoint us in that regard. Here are some of the charges that have been lodged against her:
156 DISORDERLY CONDUCT
151 PUBLIC INTOXICATION
26 CRIMINAL TRESPASS
13 OBSTRUCT HIGHWAY OR PASSAGEWAY
11 ASSAULT-BODILY HARM
10 ASSAULT Misd
6 PEDESTRIAN WALKING UPON ROADWAY
5 EVADING ARREST
5 MAKE NONEMERGENCY 911 CALL-PROHIBIT
4 VANDALISM $500 OR LESS
3 ASSAULT-OFFENSIVE CONTACT
2 MALICIOUS MISCHIEF
2 PEDESTRIAN SOLICITING RIDE/BUSINESS
2 RESISTING OFFICIAL DETENTION
1 AGG CRIM TRESPASS
1 AGGRAVATED ASSAULT
1 ASSAULT-THREAT BODILY HARM
1 CRIMINAL LITTERING
1 DOMESTIC ASSAULT-BODILY HARM
1 FAIL TO APPEAR FOR BOOKING/PROCESS
1 GRAND LARCENY
1 OBSTRUCTING TRAFFIC M
1 REC/CON STOLEN PROP-OVER $200
1 UNLAWFUL POSS WEAPON
Two Thousand was a banner year for Kim, but I'm afraid she is slowing down to a crawl. She has only been arrested three times this year. Just for fun, let's look at how many times Kim has been arrested, by year since she began her "excellent adventure" in 1989:
In reading through several of her more recent arrest affidavits, I noticed she likes to call 911 and do things like axe them for $3.00. She has also provided entertainment at several local hospitals, where she cussed everyone in sight, and when placed in the back of a squad car, attempted to kick the doors off. The doctors said she wasn't crazy enough to be committed.... Hmmmm...Memphis we have a problem! You see Kim is one of those people who may be a little bit crazy, but then again... who isn't. The courts think she is too crazy for jail, and the hospitals say she is a criminal, not crazy. I'm thinking it is possible, I mean it is within the realm of possibility that she is BOTH!
So, the question is what to do about Kim and her like-minded pals. This is the question for the legislature, the judges and everyone else who might have a say in this. Unleashing urban terrorists/wackos on the unsuspecting public is just wrong. People who will not do right, crazy or not, need to go to a special place, particularly when they committ the offense of "failure to do right" a couple hundred times.
