JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

WARNING: Story contains some foul language

On Friday, Jackson councilman Kenneth Stokes held a press conference with the purpose of firing back at Rankin County Undersheriff Raymond Duke, who appeared to call him out in a Facebook post on Thursday after a Pearl police officer's home was shot up in Jackson.

Neighbors told us they believe the shooting was in retaliation to a police chase from Pearl into Jackson that happened earlier this week.

Duke posted to Facebook from the Rankin County Sheriff's Office page and said, "If the thugs weren't encouraged to throw rocks, bottles and sticks, maybe they would not have felt so comfortable in attempting to assassinate an officer simply because of the job he does."

The bold statement caught the attention of one Kenneth Stokes, who spoke to our cameras today, calling Duke a "hog headed lying bastard".

Stokes says outside agencies are chasing suspects at high speeds through black neighborhoods in Jackson and clearly have a great disrespect for black lives. 

He says that Raymond Duke is among the "racist thugs" operating under the cover of law enforcement. 

Stokes still condones throwing objects at outside agencies chasing through what he says are black only neighborhoods.
He finally called Duke a racist and gave this parting comment

"Show me a picture of him and tell me he don't have a hog head," said Stokes. "He just lied saying that the people of Jackson like we all shooting up a house and he sure a bastard."

Duke's released this statement in response to Stokes' comments:

“I will not allow the statements made by Ken Stokes to take the focus from the original message. We had a fellow officer who was viciously attacked by cowardly thugs and was in need of assistance.  The outpouring of love and support for Officer Alfred Jenkins has been simply amazing.  Thank you to everyone for your prayers and support.”
