Police Officer’s Home Shot Up After City Councilman Tells People To Throw Rocks At Cops (Video)

After Pearl Police Officer Alfred Jenkins’ home was shot at 30 times on  overnight on Wednesday, night while he and his wife took cover inside, the Rankin County law enforcement community rallied on social media.

A coward is defined by Webster’s Dictionary as a person who shows shameless lack of courage. Some synonyms for “Thug” are; gangster, goon, gorilla, punk, also as defined by Webster’s Dictionary, The Rankin County Sheriff’s Office posted on their Facebook page.

Tuesday night some cowardly punks committed a “hate crime” against one of Pearl PD’s finest. It doesn’t appear race was an issue, so let’s dismiss that before we go further. Pearl Officer Alfred Jenkins and his wife were inside their South Jackson home when criminals fired in excess of twenty rounds into their residence. The only apparent reason is that Officer Jenkins chose a noble career that has now become looked at with disdain and hatred.

Officer Jenkins spends his working hours trying to protect others as they sleep or rest peacefully in their home. Now that same peace has been stolen from him and his family.

Hiding in the dark, some cowardly punks targeted Officer Jenkins for his career choice. It is by the grace of God the Jenkins were not injured. The attack against Officer Jenkins has forced him to move out of Jackson for his own safety. 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.

If you personally know a law enforcement officer in Mississippi, you know we don’t do the job for the money. Most have to work a second and maybe third job just to provide a decent living for our family. Yes, that was our career choice and we knew we would face danger and possibly death. You just don’t expect it to happen in the security and sanctity of your own home. The feeling of security and comfort will forever be changed for Officer Jenkins and his family.

Part of that change includes moving to another area where he can hopefully regain a feeling of safety. Officer Jenkins would never solicit help from others, but now is the time for others to lend a helping hand to Officer Jenkins. The attack left most of the Jenkins living room and bedroom destroyed. TVs, furnishings, and memorabilia, were all destroyed. Let’s show Officer Jenkins our support by making a donation to a fund setup by Pearl PD for the Jenkins.

Sgt Brown with the Pearl Police Department is the point of contact if you would like to make a donation. The phone number from Pearl PD is 601-939-7000.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called the children of God.

This post is my, Raymond Duke’s, personal opinion and may not be those of Sheriff Bryan Bailey or the Rankin County Sheriff’s Department.

A Rankin County Sheriff’s Department official called whoever shot up a Pearl police officer’s home “cowardly punks who committed a ‘hate crime’” against the officer.

Officer Alfred Jenkins’ home on Dardanelle Drive in south Jackson was shot up about 1 a.m. Wednesday, authorities said. More than 30 bullet holes were left in the house, from what police said were an assault rifle and a handgun.

Jenkins and his wife was at home at the time of the incident, but neither were injured, according to Jackson police. But the Jenkins’ living room and bedroom destroyed were destroyed, along with TVs, furnishings and memorabilia, according to a post on the Rankin County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.

The post, which was written by Undersheriff Raymond Duke, went on to say that Jenkins was targeted because of he is a police officer.

“The only apparent reason (for the shooting) is that Officer Jenkins chose a noble career that has now become looked at with disdain and hatred,” Duke wrote. “Officer Jenkins spends his working hours trying to protect others as they sleep or rest peacefully in their home. Now that same peace has been stolen from him and his family. Hiding in the dark, some cowardly punks targeted Officer Jenkins for his career choice. It is by the grace of God the Jenkins were not injured.”

Duke said Jenkins and his wife have moved out of Jackson for their own safety.

“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,” Duke wrote.

Jackson City Councilman Kenneth Stokes suggested in 2016 that residents throw rocks, bottles and bricks at officers from other metro law enforcement agencies that chase suspects into the city of Jackson. Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey fired back at the time and accused Stokes of inciting “hatred and violence” against the officers.

“If you personally know a law enforcement officer in Mississippi, you know we don’t do the job for the money. Most have to work a second and maybe third job just to provide a decent living for our family. Yes, that was our career choice and we knew we would face danger and possibly death. You just don’t expect it to happen in the security and sanctity of your own home. The feeling of security and comfort will forever be changed for Officer Jenkins and his family,” Duke said in the post. “Part of that change includes moving to another area where he can hopefully regain a feeling of safety.”

Duke asked for donations to a fund he said was set up by the Pearl Police Department for the Jenkins family.
