Judge Finds "Open Carry" Bill Unconstitutional

July 12, 2013

Hinds County Judge Winston L. Kidd ruled Friday that House Bill 2, which deals with openly carrying weapons, is unconstitutional and would pose great harm to the law enforcement community and the public.

City of West Point Briefs

July 11, 2013

• Last month, West Point Chief of Police recommended that the Board of Mayor and Selectmen assess a $1 fee on each Municipal Court fine to help fund the city's D.A.R.E. Program.
