    Thanks for Sharing Brother Clyde
    This is Brother Orisons kind of Guy!

    The judicial system is looking to charge him with exciting violence for making the statements.
    Not understanding that if you write out a threat, speak a threat to a city official, DMV, parking meter agents, police officers and government officials at all, this law may even include bank officials, it will get you a year minimum in jail.

    The penalty varies state to state but they have planned for them not doing the right thing in government and they hide behind the laws they created to keep public individuals and others from smacking some sense into them for acting silly.

    Councilman Kenneth Stokes has a reputation of saying what he thinks and stirring controversy.

    "Let's get rocks; let's get bricks, and let's get bottles,"
    Brother Orison.. has no idea of the law here. If he does then still advocating knee capping is a threat and I was doing all I could to cool him down from exciting written and public violence that possibly could ricochet back onto him or someone-else.

    Glad you enjoyed it Brother HODEE. At some point though, enough is enough and Kenneth certainly had enough, lol.

    Meanwhile, let's hope the Governor and others don't take this too far. I'll be sure and keep an eye on the outcome of all this.

    Miss. councilman: 'Thugs with badges' driving cop chases


    ... Mayor Tony Yarber responded in a tweet, saying, “Calls concerning Councilman Stokes’ remarks should go to the councilman. He alone is responsible for his remarks.”

    Bryant and Hood also released statements last week condemning Stokes’ comments, with Bryant and Madison County Sheriff Randy Tucker saying they would ask Hood for a review of Stokes’ comments to see if they incite violence. Hood stated that he would look into every complaint ...

    Sheriff: If Cops Are Harmed, 'I'm Going After' Councilman Who Called for Violence


    Sheriff Jim Johnson of Lee County said that message is unhelpful.

    Johnson said that in his 35 years of experience that he's never seen law enforcement officers being threatened the way they are now.

    He said he would hold Stokes directly responsible for any attacks on himself or his officers.

    "I can definitely tell you in Lee County that if any of my officers or myself are subjected to any type of harm in the way that Mr. Stokes said, not only are we going to look for the individual that did it, but I'm going after him as well." ...

    A black Mississippi councilman suggested hurling ‘rocks and bricks and bottles’ at officers


    Frustrated by high-speed police chases entering Jackson, Miss., from other jurisdictions, city councilman Kenneth Stokes recently offered a controversial solution: If residents see police from outside the city pursuing criminals in their neighborhoods, he said, they should retaliate.

    “Race is a factor,” Stokes said, noting that he thinks chases into Jackson have increased because the city has a majority-black city council, a black mayor and a black police chief ...
