In the ongoing story of MS Tea Party folks sneaking into a nursing home and taking photographs of US Senator Thad Cochran's (R-MS) ill wife, the police report has more details (as reported by the blog Jackson Jambalaya)

"The report claims Clayton Kelly, "Mark"*, John Mary, and others began conspiring in February to photograph Mrs. Cochran  in her nursing home bed.  They intended to use the pictures in an  internet video attacking Senator Cochran.  Kelly and two other suspects were arrested and charged. "

"John Bert also stated in some of the messages that an individual named "Mark" would be making the arrangements to have an individual, yet to be identified, call Clayton Kelly with detailed instructions on where to locate Rose Cochran's room within St. Catherine's Village.  Messages furhter went on between John Bert and Clayton Kelly associated with John Bert asking on several occasions if there had been basically any progress made related to Clayton Kelly being successful at entering St. Catherine's Village."

"Investigator Vickie Curry testified at Kelly's preliminary hearing Thursday that he  made three attempts to photograph Mrs. Cochran.  "

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
