JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – A city of Jackson councilman releases a statement to WJTV addressing the comments made by Ward 3, City of Jackson Councilman Kenneth Stokes,

Councilman Ashby Foote, Ward 1:

“I think such flippant comments are unworthy of the high office of city councilman. It’s demeaning to the difficult duties that our law enforcement officers have to carry out on a daily basis.”

Councilman Stokes said the following in a recent interview:

“Let’s get rocks, let’s get bricks and let’s get bottles and start throwing them and then they (police) won’t come in here anymore.”
