In 2012, Flowers has been sentenced to eight counts of auto burglary and conspiracy. He was given a partially suspended sentence that was revoked in 2015 after he violated conditions of release. He was paroled in 2016, but parole was revoked in 2017 after he stole a car and fled from police. However, he was allowed to post bond and get out of jail. He didn’t make his next court appearance, and a warrant was issued for his arrest, which was active at the time Flowers murdered the Brookhaven officers

Blue Lives Matter: The halftime performance for a game between Forest Hill High School and Brookhaven High School has sparked outraged after the students depicted the execution of police officers. The Forest Hill High School band members showed students dressed and doctors and nurses using fake rifles to depict the execution of students dressed as police officers. The performance comes just one week after two Brokhaven officers were murdered in the line of duty.
The performance caught the attention of Governor Phil Bryant who tweeted, “This is unacceptable in a civilized society. Someone should be held accountable.”
WLBT reports that Brookhaven Mayor Joe Cox spoke to the mayor of Jackson, who responded that the Forest Hill band director has been suspended.
The mayor also apologized for the halftime show. Brookhaven Patrolman James White and Corporal Zack Moak were murdered in the line of duty last Saturday morning. The incident started as Officers White, 35, and Moak, 31, were responding to a report of shots fired at around 5 a.m. at 630 N. 6th Street, according to Chief Kenneth Collins. The officers arrived one after another and were shot by Marquis Flowers, 25. During the gunfight, both officers were mortally wounded, and Flowers was wounded in the gunfight and remains hospitalized.

Nothing surprises me any more. Except for the fact that Mississippi has the same problems we do in Massachusetts when it comes to judges letting dangerous criminals back out onto the street so they can kill cops. I thought that was an us thing, but apparently it’s all over the country.
I didn’t think it was possible to try to explain your way out of this one, but the Superintendent of the Jackson Public Schools sure did try:
“On behalf of the Jackson Public School (JPS) District, I want to offer my deep and sincere apologies for the performance by the Forest Hill High School band during Friday’s football half-time show in Brookhaven. Based loosely on the movie, “John Q,” the band’s performance depicted a hostage scene that included toy guns.
John Q came out in 2002. These kids were born in 2002. There’s no way more than a couple of them are even remotely familiar with this movie. Plus, Denzel is noble in that movie. He doesn’t kill any cops, and he certainly doesn’t carry guns like that. He pulls the gun on himself, that’s what makes the movie so powerful. He’s willing to kill himself to save his son’s life. Oh, and he’s not wearing scrubs. But they expect us to believe that this was what they were reenacting. Fail.
Either way, since when do high school marching bands depict their favorite Denzel movies during halftime shows? And the killing of two cops in Brookhaven was national news, so I’m sure it’s all over the place down there. What in the ever loving fuck is wrong with you if you’re the band director who greenlighted this? I don’t care if you were working on it for 5 years. You cancel it because you’re visiting a town where two cops were killed in cold blood just days before.
This is band leader Demetri Jones:
He’s the one who greenlighted this and thought it would be a wise idea. We have no way of knowing much about his political viewpoints since his Facebook is pretty dull. But I’m gonna go out on a limb and assume that this had nothing to do with reenacting a movie. He started this GoFundMe a few years ago when his squad was invited to the Chick Fil-A Peach Bowl Atlanta:
So this is a band that actually wins stuff and gets invited to major events (kind of). And as you can see, the band is wicked diverse. Either way, it’s insane that any rational adult would think this is a good idea to do just days after two cops were killed in the town it was performed in.
