Lawmaker urged residents to throw ‘bricks, rocks and bottles’ at police; cop’s home riddled with 30 bullets

There’s something seriously out of whack in Jackson, Mississippi.

A police officer’s home was riddled with dozens of bullet holes in a town where a city councilman urged residents to throw “bricks, rocks and bottles” at police.

Pearl Police Officer Alfred Jenkins’ South Jackson home was fired on 30 times last week as he and his wife were inside sleeping, the Clarion-Ledger reported. The attack occurred a day after the Pearl Police Department chased a woman into Jackson.

Jenkins was not involved in the pursuit and Jackson Police Chief Lee Vance, who has denounced such pursuits, said there wasn’t enough information to say if the shooting was prompted by the incident.

At the same time, Jackson City Councilman Kenneth Stokes said last year high-speed vehicle pursuits conducted by outside agencies into their city was a safety issue.

And he exposed his true feelings about police officers in offering a solution.

“These are just thugs with guns and badges,” Stokes said. “What do I think should be done? Bricks, rocks and bottles would stop this nonsense.”

This coming from an elected official who remained in office after making the remark — which may say all that you need to know about Jackson, Mississippi.

Pearl is in Rankin County and Undersheriff Raymond Duke blasted the “cowardly punks” behind the assault on social media.

“A coward is defined by Webster’s Dictionary as a person who shows shameless lack of courage,” Duke wrote. “Some synonyms for ‘thug’ are; gangster, goon, gorilla, punk, also as defined by Webster’s Dictionary.”

“Tuesday night some cowardly punks committed a ‘hate crime’ against one of Pearl PD’s finest,” he said. “It doesn’t appear race was an issue, so let’s dismiss that before we go further.”

Stokes countered Duke’s remarks, calling the law enforcement official a “hog-headed lying b*tch,” adding that he’s a “racist thug.”

“Thug with a gun and badge.”

There’s an effort under way to help Officer Jenkins move out of Jackson, which is probably a smart thing to do.
