Someone answer this serious question, please.

What does it say about the intelligence of his supporters, that Stokes is elected again and again?

So let me get this straight.

If the DA commits a crime, it should go unpunished because of possible actions of people he prosecuted? WOW.
Jackson's leadership keeps getting dumber and dumber.

Why does Kenneth Stokes always stick his nose in Hinds County Stuff. He doesn't ever show up for city council meeting. He's a big fat joke.
I totally agree with 3:36 PM & 3:48 PM

On 1300 AM, Stokes was stating that the DA was innocent - that this was all the "white man's doings". That "we all" should not let this happen.

Little more subdued when on TV in front of a broader audience. Still not logical argument, just more subdued.

Maybe the wrong message was having a DA that is crooked.
On one news station stokes said the cops had worked the DA over when they arrested him.

3:36, that's a good question so I asked it to a young lady who lives in his ward and works at my pharmacy. She said because he helps anyone who comes to him, whether it's with a water bill, a ride to the doctor, groceries, whatever. That may not always be the case, but it's the reputation that he has among his voters, and this young lady certainly believed it. Elected officials who are good at constituent services usually get reelected.

Kenneth gets reelected and given a forum because he is the face of frustration and absolute disfunction. His community can identify with that. They feel their only sense of worth can come if they make enough noise to be considered obnoxious by those in power. Kenneth does that. If he didn't, they would be totally ignored. They're right about that. If you're open minded enough you will see the parallel in Donald Trump's supporters.

Stokes is seriously one of the most ignorant people to walk the face of the earth.

Any argumeny he makes, no matter how ill-informed or idiotic, would at least benefit from his learning to speak proper English and learning to speak clearly.

I thought he was saying to throw rocks at the DA if we see him committing a crime. In fact, I'm sure of it.

5:10PM is right. The ward represent him. The ward is full of frustration and absolute disfunction. Inflation has been eating away at the wards residents social security & welfare checks. They go shopping at Kroger & find a bag of groceries is $70.00 where it used to be $15.00. They see no bump in SS or welfare check. Unwed mothers continue to spit out kids they can't support because this is their only skill set. The hard working residents get no raises or bonuses. There is absolutely no way to climb out of the working man hell pit. Kenney is the white er. black knight standing and pushing against the MAN. Doesn't matter if the stuff he does is crazy. He pushing back against the MAN.

4:59 That girls comments show the ignorance in kennufs ward. "Elected officials who are good at constituent services usually get reelected."
His district a few years ago was the fourth poorest district in the country.
How is that good good his constituents?
Stokes rental property (for his constituents) was all condemned, had no running water or working toilets. Stokes has gotten rich from that great great big city counsel salary. YEAH RIGHT
5:10 "Kenneth gets reelected and given a forum because he is the face of frustration and absolute dysfunction. His community can identify with that. They feel their only sense of worth can come if they make enough noise to be considered obnoxious by those in power. Kenneth does that. If he didn't, they would be totally ignored. They're right about that." If they believe he is their savior then that is the saddest most pathetic thing I have heard in a long long time. They are his meal/money ticket. He has NO interest in helping/improving those in his districts lives as evidenced by after 16 or so years not only is there no improvement under his watch look how much worse things have gotten. The police do not ignore his area--they can't.
6:49 you also point to any real improvement stokes has done for "his people". So do you really think that inflation, grocery prices, SS dollar amount, pregnancies, bonuses/raises are only a problem in that ward. What a stupid remark. Hard working ride around that ward and see how many men are just sitting about drinking on that 20 oz..
His job SHOULD be to get some jobs to go to his ward, teach them to call when they see a problem, get some reading programs in there--them to read
you know some things that could help improve their lives. PUSH BACK against the "man" is not a job and in all these years has NOT HELPED ANYONE other than kennuf.
This is a prime example that the black community HAS TO correct itself and start voting on results and not because the candidate is black. In spite of popular believe black IS NOT a qualification--stokes is a great example.

20 oz my foot. They won't be caught with anything smaller than a 40!

Too bad Kenny's credibility is lacking. He had this one right about R. Smith but Kenny has cried wolf too many times so, while most know this is a farce against R. Smith, it was set up to strike back at the white boys who are in trouble!

Sociology 101 said...

5:10 - Think again. The parallel is Bennie Thompson (and black elected officials representing po folk all over the country), not Donald Trump. And, sadly, nothing we say or do will change that. Nothing.

Being polished and speaking proper English is not a pre-requisite to representing a poor ward. In fact, it's a detriment.

Turn your cap around and learn something about social dynamics.

Can someone investigate Stokes nexT?

Anonymous said...

6:26 Bennie Thompson and Kenny are not a parallel. Kenny has no constituency among the well-heeled lawyers, contract hustlers, and political big wigs who fund and support Bennie. The Black establishment does not control or fund Kenny. He is a mouthpiece and mascot of the great black underclass that just wants to be a sharp stick in the eye of the white oppressors. 5:10 did not condone it. He simply said it has a parallel in Donald Trump. You can see it if your eyes are open.

Prob so... So what? I think they're on to something.

Kim Wade said...

So what happened to the subpoenas issued by the D.A. pursuant to a grand jury investigation to the State Auditor's office and the 2 investigators? Is anyone asserting that they were defective in someway.

Anonymous said...

6:49, What working man? You can count on one hand how many people in sweating stokes ward has a job. Generations of people with not a single working person in their history.

11:24 - if the charges against RSS are a farce, then why is the FBI so involved? FBI doesn't have a "dog in the fight" - absolutely nothing to gain. My Daddy used to say "where there's smoke, there's fire"...

Retired FBI...opining only said...

I really don't think these people are aware, or they are ignoring, how serious all of this is. The FBI will not charge a public official unless they are lead pipe sure of a conviction. They also get reams of phone, bank, text, email etc records, through quiet subpoenas as a part of their arrest package.

All this talk about all this conspiracy stuff will prove to be just that. Talk. and if were many of them, I would not be commenting so fast and publically, as they may be knee deep in the investigation as well.

The states chief law enforcement official and the United States Department of Justice have arrested Mr. Smith. If he doesn't take the misdemeanor and plea, step down and the like, expect a follow-up shit storm of biblical proportions, and many heads to roll.

Anonymous said...

8:57, you are missing the point. Bennie and Kenny are supported by the same type of people. Doesn't matter how much money they have, all are race baiters just looking for any thing they can blame on the white man.

Anonymous said...

I posted the original question. And whomever suggested the Donald Trump parallel has a point.

I've thought for a while that Trump supporters are like white versions of the Obama Phone Woman. Trump is just whipping up resentment among white trash, convincing them that China, Mexico and "trade deals" are responsible for the misery in their lives. Not unlike Kenny Stokes at all, TBH.

Anonymous said...

Sorry 9:56 but you are looking at the forest and not the trees. Kenny's people are about frustration and revenge. Bennie's are about money and control. Kenny still lives in the hood and is a "homeboy"
Bennie is a millionaire and aligns himself with other millionaires. Please see more than just Black.

Anonymous said...

10:16, you forgot something. Bennie was not a millionaire when he was first elected. You probably think he became a millionaire with the salary the govt. paid him. Of course Bennie aligns himself with millionaires. Who else can buy him? He is very good at playing the race card.
I can see Kenny's people are about frustration and revenge. He plays into that frustration and revenge in every way he can. They are not smart enough to realize this.
Both are the same type of people. Both take advantage of others. Neither would have won a single election if they had to do it on their achievements. They were elected only because of their color.

Sociology 101 said...

8:57 - Try to pay attention here. Regarding the parallel that exists between Bennie and Kenny, nothing was said or implied about constituency or holding sway with lawyers or contract hustlers. The commentary centered around votes. you know. Those who vote to keep ineffective people in office. Again. And. Again. And. Again. In that regard, Stokes and Thompson are peas in a pod and as close to parallel as politics will allow. Nice try though.

Anonymous said...

12:15 Bennie and Kenny are both a roadblock to progress, but the point 8:57 makes is that to their respective core support they are not "ineffective". One brings home the pork and political control which they so desire, the other sticks a stick in the eye of everybody not lower class and black. Both have satisfied a different but significant faction. And they get elected because they are Black AND Democrats. If you think otherwise, get a Black Republican elected. Really.

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.

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.
