The Right Wing Facebook world is all aflutter after a Mississippi Councilman recommended people throw rocks, bricks and bottles at non-jurisdictional police, who are chasing misdemeanor suspects in neighboring counties.

On Fox and Friends Weekend, Tucker Carlson discussed the recent comments by Kenneth Stokes, a Black City Councilman from Jackson who is fearful of the high speed chases which ensue from police pursuits of minor offense-committing suspects. Carlson wants a direct response to the comments he made yesterday morning from the 'Obama Justice Department' and he wants them right now. Of course, Carlson wants the Federal Department to agree with his point of view.

But Tucker and his police are infallible guest, Rod Wheeler, forgot to mention why Stokes made his 'inflammatory' comments and just skipped to the right-wing outrage over the councilman's remarks. Wheeler, a known critic of anyone who disparages the police, insinuates that Councilman Stokes is taking his cues from the

Mayor of Baltimore, Governor Jay Nixon (really?), Bill DeBlasio and Rahm Emanuel

(some of) whom have doubted the integrity of the Boys in Blue thanks to some very damning video evidence against them.

Wheeler suggests that Jackson, Mississippi police should not even acknowledge non-emergency calls they receive as an apt protest against Mr. Stokes' advice. As far as the ex-homicide detective is concerned, anytime anyone expresses opposition to the conduct of the police, they should pay the price. That seems to be the response from the Right. There will be consequences for anyone who dares to critique law enforcement!
