Find Out Why This City Councilman Wants Citizens to Throw Rocks, Bricks & Bottles at Police

A Mississippi city councilman is in hot water for suggesting residents attack police officers from other districts and counties with rocks, bricks and bottles. Speaking earlier in the week about police chases crossing into Jackson’s jurisdiction, Councilman Kenneth Stokes publicly stated, “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.” According to WJTV, Stokes is known for his bold and often times controversial statements. Randy Tucker, the sheriff of Madison County, posted a stern response and a warning to Stokes via Facebook. “Law Enforcement will not be intimidated by you,” Tucker said. “Any Madison county law enforcement that is attacked because of your ignorant statements, I will hold you responsible. I fully intend to contact the MS Attorney General and inquire if your statements constitute assaults on officers by threat.” Stokes’ comment even garnered a response from Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant who reiterated Tucker’s call for an investigation by the state’s attorney general.
