City Councilman wants to crack-down on violence toward police

The Councilman is urging parents to speak with their children about the seriousness of shooting at law enforcement.

“In the beginning. Not in the middle and not in the end, talk to your family members. Tell your family members that shooting at police officers is not and will not be tolerated, nor will it be accepted in the City of Jackson.”

Councilman Stokes plans to propose $2,500 reward at the next council meeting for anyone who provides information leading to the suspects’ arrest and conviction.

“We need to look at anywhere we can find this money, because we need these young people off the street. Because if they’ll shoot at a police officer, they’ll shoot at you or me.”
