A city councilman fed up with police from other counties racing after small-time crooks in his Jackson, Mississippi, neighborhood has called for residents to throw things at officers in pursuit.
Now, the governor and a county sheriff are threatening to have prosecutors investigate him over the suggestion.
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,” Stokes told CNN affiliate WJTV. “And we’ll start throwing them, and then they won’t come in here anymore.”
