Melton: Mayor must obey law like anybody else

Melton: Mayor must obey law like anybody else - The Clarion-Ledger: "The Jackson American Civil Liberties Union is rightly urging Hinds County Circuit Judge Tomie Green to review if Mayor Frank Melton had violated his probation.

Melton is on probation after pleading no contest in November to carrying a gun on a school campus and guilty to two misdemeanor gun charges. He is also out on bail bond on five felony charges pending trial on allegations he and others damaged a home with sledgehammers.

Melton's recent actions involving raiding nightclubs, using the police department's Mobile Command Unit, his proximity to minors and adhering to a curfew appear to violate the agreements.

The ACLU is right to question if Melton is abiding by his probation and bond agreements, not as part of any vendetta, but as a simple matter of law."
