Sound Off: Metro Inn

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Deryl Dedmon is accused of running over James Craig Anderson with his truck killing him in front of the Metro Inn on Ellis Avenue.

This senseless murder of Anderson was not the Metro Inn's first brush with crime.

Law enforcement and a former employee say that the Metro Inn is a magnet for drugs, prostitution and other unsavory illegal activities.

The Metro Inn joins the list of other fine establishments that are havens for violence and crime.

Remember the Birdland and Upper Level nightclubs they were shut down for threatening public safety.

The Metro Inn has made money turning a "blind eye" to illegal activity.

There is no room in Jackson for the Metro Inn; close it up, the sooner the better.
