Stokes goes too far

Jackson City Councilman Kenneth Stokes crossed the line today. WLBT reported:




"What I suggest is we get the black leadership together, and as these jurisdictions come into Jackson we throw rocks and bricks and bottles at them. That will send a message we don't want you in here," he says. Rest of article. 

Kingfish: Perhaps we should follow the standards set by Stokes and throw rocks and bottles at Stokes if we see him. What do you think? Good job, Stokes. You are about to fight the legislature over the airport. Yeah, this is going to help your cause.  Good job

Just when I thought he couldn't say anything more stupid, KIS opens his mouth.

Had I know would have thrown hot dogs and sausages at the buffoon while he was playing the clown in the I55 Kroger this afternoon.

Well, people like Stokes don't teach their kids not to point toy guns at Police or walk down a street waving a knife at Police. What he is promoting is the same thing as going to the zoo and jumping into the tiger exhibit, swimming in a pool of sharks or sand papering a bobcats ass. Get the picture? He is axkin ferr trouble.

This is exactly the publicity he wants. You can make fun of him all you want, it does not matter.

I know it sounds racist, but I left Jackson to get away from people like Stokes. He's so blind with hate he can't see that he's become the very thing he claims to fight against, and too many of his kind (including self hating whites) cheer on this hateful stuff. If wish he could be charged for inciting violence against law enforcement, but that would go nowhere.

If he would keep his people in his city law enforcement in the metro would not have to chase them back to that joke of a city. Waste of oxygen

He is an embarrassment to all of Jackson. Shame on Ward 3 for electing him.

Well, just, damn, not sure what to say that could be published, anonymous or not. KIS is just a plain ignorant fool.

You people have to understand the psychology at work here. Stokes is bound and determined to not let Banks and Espy get more attention than he gets. It's a contest.

Same reason he left the Hinds County Board of Supervisors. He found himself in a position of irrelevance, where he garnered no respect, less attention and zero importance. So, he got himself back on the city council where he could act like a damned idiot and garner the attention that keeps his big ole water-head afloat.

This is great. Imagine if the Jackson resident started assaulting police officers, and the police defended themselves. That's exactly what it will take to make Jackson a nice place to live again.

I just read the oath of office for the city council.

There is actually information given to the council to explain to them their responsibilities.

Stokes must not have bothered to read it.

This seems to me a violation of the oath of office as he is to uphold the law and see that the law is enforced, not encourage it be broken.

What was not in that information is what measures can be taken to remove him from office.

Surely some mechanism exists to remove him from office.

He needs to be labeled as a domestic terrorist!

Stokes is a racist said...

He should be forced to resign from office... But wait, he's black

Anonymous said...

7:52, that would be the first step to bring a "wake up call" to the City Council. The other City Council members are either scared, intimidated, or just plain stupid to the fact that if they are not voicing out against him then they are condoning his Black Panther tactics! Therefore, I agree. He should have his big mouth removed. Although, the city can never be brought back to its once admired status in the state, it will send a clear message.

Don't believe he takes the oath of office very seriously..........

Stokes ward is among the poorest and most crime ridden in the city. These people are like voters in NE Jackson or madison or rankin.

Stokes will be next Mayor if he wants it. He just say what most Jackson folks believe and want to hear.

Could he be arrested for inciting terrorism? Please???

This clown is the #1 problem in Jackson. The #2 problem consists of the morons who continue to elect him. The entire metro area will be better off when he isn't around anymore.

Just an example of what Jackson has become. A refuge for every criminal in the country.
Wonder what the people of Ms. would have to do to move the capital to another city. One that does not protect the criminals and try to get the people to attack the police?

its going to happen: someone in a jackson neighborhood will throw a brick or a rock (or pull a gun) on a madison, ridgeland, pearl, clinton (whatever burb) police officer entering jackson to aprehend a thug AND someone will be shot dead--likely a teen or child that feels empowered by stokes

where are the african-american community leaders to speak out AGAINST stokes statements?
where is the mayor? anyone on the city council? jackson police department?

I'm listening WMPR!


Anonymous said...

10:22 is correct... Stokes ward is an awful place full of crime and uneducated people and he hasn't helped them in any form or fashion. His voters are nothing like voters in NE Jackson or the madison rankin voter base and he knows this. This is pure media power great by him to ensure his men ions turn out to vote.

Does Black America know how bad it would look if White Mississippi wrote a book about Black Mississippi?

Where's the outrage in the black community for letting a "leader" of the community say something like this? He's telling kids it's okay to throw rocks at the police! And people wonder why police officers sometimes do "bad" things. People with manners and social skills know how to talk to people in authority and strangers. Stokes preaches throwing things at people in authority who are trying to help you. And people wonder why teachers in JPS have it so tough.

Despicable.

Whatchu mean by 'Please???', dumbass. If he were white that's precisely what the charge would be.

Or did you mean 'please' arrest his racist, inciteful ass?

Anonymous said...

Y'all just don't get it. It's heads he wins tails we lose when he opens his pie hole. Ward 3 is full of ignorant but angry black voters who actually believe what he says and who delight in seeing whitey get outraged. When he pops off at the mouth, his insolent constituents love him that much more. Want him gone? You've got to ignore him until he goes waaaay too far or gets too careless with his income generation methods and a GOP Justice Department drops the hammer on him (which makes him a martyr, of course). Anyway, keep on screaming about him. The gubmint handout crowd in Ward 3 is loving your reactions.

The black leadership is just fine with his comments, 10:47.

Someone said kenny stokes was like a white Donald Trump. Difference is Donald Trump has huge number of minority support. Mainly Hispanic and black. Not muslims of course. But stokes is far from trump. He has lived off tax payer forever now. Trump has made and created jobs.

Anonymous said...

When is the last time that any of your drove through ward 3? Stokes has signs everywhere promoting himself. He wishes everyone a happy _____ day (you enter the name of the occasion. He also congratulates people who live in his district. Stokes knows how to self promote. I don't have statistics to back up my feelings about the voters in his district, however, from the condition of most of the neighborhoods, it appears that the residents are poor, uninformed, little education and a failure to care for their neighborhood. When voters fall into these categories, it is not difficult to sway their vote. Stokes is their hero. I don't believe that he will ever be defeated unless he is convicted of a felony. On the other hand, his wife, Judge Stokes, has very good decorum in her Courtroom. It doesn't seem to matter to her the race of the defendant, she rules based on fact and the law.

If they have any manhood at all.....Yarber and Lee Vance should step up and denounce Stokes comments....I guess I'm dreaming.

How can Stokes wife, as a sitting judge, condone these comments?

Bob Boteler said...

Ward 3 is composed of many hardworking folks, local owned businesses, schools and churches. Yes, the area has large numbers of people that have been underserved by Jackson leadership going back many many years. We can all work together for improving the quality of life for all Jacksonians- ignoring Councilman Stokes and his constituents is not the answer. Engaging in conversation, meeting with, listening to, and beginning friendships with Councilman Stokes and his constituents is the answer. Are you willing to take the first step?

Engaging in conversation, meeting with, listening to ...

Tell us what you think we'd learn Bob?

Anonymous said...

Bob, Your math is lacking. There are a 'few'hard working people in Ward 3. There are a 'few' local owned businesses. The schools have nothing to do with Ward 3 - they were established there by JPS decades ago and go with the territory. (But I bet you wouldn't send your kids to any of them if you had the chance. The shame is that there are some good kids that are doomed to having to attend because of our black plantation mentality -but that's for another post.)

With this kind of leadership for the City, there is little chance to improve the quality of life for these folks or for the rest of Jackson. The problem is - these poor individuals that live in the squalor of Ward 3 continue to elect Stokes (or his wife) to continue this kind of non-leadership.

Forming a friendship with Councilman Stokes doesn't work for anybody white. Just listen to his radio show on 1300 AM every Sunday morning (9:00-10:00). There you will learn that he has no interest in ANYTHING white in Jackson.

And this comes from one who has tried to take a step and found a few folks in the area that do care. Problem is - they are overrun by the others and by the drug dealers on every street (not just the corners) and the boarded up houses that give them cover.

Time for someone to shut this clown up. You can't reason with this ilk.

Anonymous said...

He is trying to incite violence with these statements. I believe he is hoping for another Ferguson situation so he can lead the pack. Shame on him and shame on the city residents who voted him in. We have watched him on the news over the past two years and just laugh at all his interviews. We feel he is quite comical and each time he speaks, he raises the property value of the surrounding counties. It is sad that his people believe in him. Arrest him, now!

Bob, I respect and agree with your general approach, but I'm afraid you can't engage rationally with an irrational person ( of any race) nor with one of any race who makes his living off of playing to the racial fears and prejudices of others.

Unfortunately, as we've seen by the comments, it's hard to tell if someone is a professional or amateur racist. We can only be certain that racists are either sociopaths or irrational. Neither are willing to sit down and rationally solve legitimate concerns of those whose concerns they purport to represent.

Police pursuits are a legitimate issue and a discussion of the policies that should guide the pursuit decision is needed as well as being certain law enforcement is receiving adequate training. Most reasonable people would not support, for example, putting citizen's lives at risk to chase someone committing a misdemeanor.

Stokes and the Calhoun Sheriff want us to choose up political/racial sides. Neither would dare acknowledge that poor black communities and law enforcement can ever have problems to be solved.

The only " side" is having professional law enforcement policies and training in place to not only protect citizens but to protect law enforcement officers serving those citizens. The problem is dealing with those in our communities and professions who are incompetent or corrupt. To do that, decent people need to unite.

Everyone is forgetting that the perp ASSAULTED 2 people while shoplifting!!! Its not enough that he shoplifted but he also assaulted 2 innocent people. He should have been run down like a damn wild animal!

Anonymous said...

The issue of other municipalities' law enforcement unfettered ability to chase/pursue into the city of Jackson is a serious and valid concern. Stokes should allow the mayor to speak on these matters from a policy and fiduciary vantage, because certainly there is some complicity and liability for a bankrupt city in allowing the likes of Madison and Rankin city and county's law agencies to chase into the city.


JPD is not allowed to chase/pursue fleeing criminals in Jackson let alone into Madison or Rankin counties? Conversely so, neither should others be allowed to pursue into the municipality that all white people from Madison and Rankin counties hate to shop, live and breathe in unless the stupid ass rodeo is in town!

Please note that as much as Girlyman McGhee and Mary Horseshit Butler or Bimbo Rogers and B%tchass Lee do not want us, the city of Jackson does not want the likes of their kind either.

11:05 if we go with your conversely, the retrobates from Jackson will know that all they have to do is hit the City limits and they are "home free". Crime will really proliferate in the burbs then. BUT, thank goodness, it is State law and civil court rulings that will ultimately control the inter-jurisdictional pursuits, not the hogwash buffoon.

Anonymous said...

@0852 Perhaps you mean reprobate; retrobate must be in the George W. Bush dictionary??

If the good ole boys in Madison and Rankin counties can't pursue or catch within the confines of thier city or county limits, then protect and serve the 90% of us traveling to and from work in and around Jackson from undue chases and fortuitous injury for bad checks and petty larceny.

There's plenty of crime being committed in Rankin and Madison counties; just because it doesn't make the news or KFS blog doesn't mean it is not occurring! Bailey can keep busy by catching all the pedophiles in Shiloh Splash Park and Tucker can keep busy with all the Ritalin, adderal and spice taking parents and their progeny in Madison.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
