    Chief McMillin Discusses Overnight Shooting of Officer








    A Jackson police officer is among the victims in an overnight shooting.

    Early Thursday morning, officers rushed to the scene near Pop's Around the Corner, nightclub on South Gallatin Street. Security guard John Robinson and off-duty Jackson police officer James Dunaway were both wounded.

    Police Chief Malcolm McMillin said the victims' wounds did not appear to be life-threatening. Now his officers are trying to find the shooter.

    "The suspect left the scene," the chief said. "We know that he was a black male. He was traveling in a late-model Cadillac and proceeded north on Gallatin Street. We don't have any other information except there was an altercation at the scene that resulted in this shooting."

    McMillin says it shows the need for a change in Jackson's nightclubs.

    "This case illustrates the need for a uniform closing time. These clubs, nothing good happens after 2:00 in the morning. This is another example of that."

    McMillin says he will speak with members of the city council to push for an ordinance that makes it illegal to drink in Jackson's nightclubs after 2 a.m. If you have any information that could help police, call them at (601) 960-1234.

    Closing time is 2 AM? You might as well just let them stay open all night. Ridiculous! I can't think of any legitimate reason to permit clubs to remain open past midnight. If you have a problem and can't slake your alcoholic urges by midnight, go home to drink, have a ball and kill yourself. As long as you're home and not out in public or on the road, no one will care when you pass out and hit your head on the fireplace grate. The best you'll get from me is "Sayanara, Loser - good riddance".

        2am is the cut off for the sale of alcoholic beverages here in Orlando, FL.

        I get people all the time though that get pissed off when we tell them to drink up or pour em out (we have a bar at our hotel) and say "well where we are from we can buy alcohol till like 4-5 am! This is ridiculous! Florida Sucks! blah blah blah...” Not only that, but once 12am-1am rolls around, nothing but drunks on the street and of course we have a big McDonald’s right next door. Lots of interesting sights and sounds at night as you can imagine.
        And they always seem to find their way to our hotel. lol

        Luckily they have been hiring an off-duty Deputy since the start of the year which has helped a bit.

            If you are not finished my midnight, it is too late to find an after-party and hit the package store anyway.

                  From WikiPedia
                  Australia
                  In NSW there is no specified closing time, although in residential areas bars are often required to close at midnight. In non-residential areas some bars are open 24 hours.


                  United Kingdom
                  From late 2005, drinking establishments could apply for licences to stay open and serve alcohol for 24 hours a day. This means that round-the-clock drinking (in England and Wales) is now a reality.

                  Within the first month of it becoming law, over 1,000 pubs, clubs and supermarkets had been granted 24-hour licences to sell alcohol. A further 40 per cent of premises had applied to vary their licences to either extend opening times by an hour or two, or to offer late food or entertainment. Many more establishments have since renewed their licences. In 2008/9 Scotland will join England and Wales when New Licensing Laws come in to effect.


                  Canada
                  British Columbia - Last call is 2 a.m. province wide, may purchase "off sales" bottled beer and the like from local Pubs until 2300h.
                  Alberta - Last call and sale of alcohol from a store is 2 a.m. province wide.
                  Ontario - Last call is 2 a.m. province wide, although the province has the authority to grant waivers to allow closing at 4 a.m. during special events.
                  Quebec - Last call is 3 a.m. province wide for establishments serving alcohol, while the sale of alcohol from a store is restricted after 11 p.m.

                  United States
                  Last call laws vary widely from state to state, and in most states, cities and towns are free to impose more restrictive regulations. Large metropolitan areas with many towns may have different laws for areas that are only a short distance apart. The following lists should not be considered exhaustive.


                  [edit] State specific laws
                  Alaska - 5 a.m.; while most cities restrict this further, some do not (primarily smaller Matanuska-Susitna Valley towns), and some villages are dry.
