Madison Supes slam Stokes

The Madison County Board of Supervisors issued the following statement:&nbsp

The Madison County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to condemn the remarks made by Jackson City Councilman Kenneth Stokes about law enforcement. To suggest throwing bricks, bottles and rocks at those who risk their lives daily to protect our citizens is reckless, shows disregard for law enforcement and is not acceptable.

We stand firmly behind Madison County Law Enforcement because they are the best trained, they are professional and all of them have one goal: protecting our neighborhoods, schools and businesses. Any attempt to harm law enforcement due to Councilman Stokes’ remarks would be shameful, dangerous and stopped very quickly by the very law enforcement he has attempted to incite violence against.

We are proud to join law enforcement across Mississippi and America for condemning such irresponsible comments by Councilman Stokes. We are also proud to maintain a good relationship with the Jackson Police Department and the Hinds County Sheriff’s Department.

When reached for comment, Board members added, "Hey! Look over there! At that crazy racist black guy! Nothing to see here!"

When did they take this action? It was not at the board meeting this week. Maybe they were polled or maybe the Chancery Clerk came up with it.

They also passed a resolution congratulating the 72 Dolphins and they condemned the nazis. Way to go out on a limb guys.

Stokes has taken refuge in the IHOP kitchen.

You have to be able to bend over to pick up trash. He couldn't do it. Kenny isn't qualified..........

maybe he can use one of the degrees he claims to have to some something else.

Motion to Commend said...

Since this is about the new Madison County Board, in fairness, let's take a look at what the old Board would have done.

Steen would propose a letter of condemnation be sent to Stokes.

Griffin would ask for discussion, then propose a substitute motion to commend Stokes and Griffin would demand that the substitute motion be considered first.

Banks and Griffin would vote to support Stokes.

Howland would look at Banks and follow his lead.

Steen would abstain.

And Crosby would be absent.

So, the motion to condemn would fail for lack of a second and a substitute motion to support Stokes would pass.

Espy would be pre-occupied with his calculator.

7.47 you forgot that they would have hired Rudi to do a $1.2 million dollar study on throwing rocks and bottles

Stokes is an idiot, but all the politicians have gone beyond the limit to exploit the situation for political gain.

And Stokes is still there spouting his non sense.
Nothing anyone can do about him. They might as well shut up and learn to like it.

Every time he pulls one of these stunts the economic development people in Rankin and Madison Counties do their happy dance and say thank you, thank you....(repeat thousands of times)..........

This resolution was requested by Sheriff Tucker at the end of the Board of Supervisors Meeting on Monday and was approved by vote. It was the last vote before recessing until the 19th.

Where is the Madison County Board of Supervisor's resolution condemning the City of Ridgeland for passing a RACIST housing ordinance that has resulted in the City being sued by HUD and nearly ALL the apartment complex owners in Ridgeland? Yeah, right! #GTHOUH

Kingfish said...

I wasn't aware that Ridgeland threatened Madison County Deputies or encourage people to physically attack them. Did I miss something?

Take A Sit 2 said...

Maybe that loud mouthed woman on the front row will opine regarding racism among the suburban communities. After all, she has a front row sit.

4:46, No good City does what HUD wants.

That is something every city needs and wants. More HUD.
More places for people who choose not to work to live on the tax payers dime. More places to be destroyed by the people who live there.

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.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. 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. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
