Jackson City Councilman Ashby Foote recently sat down with BAMSouth.com Publisher Jack Criss for a far-reaching and comprehensive interview to be published soon. In the meantime, we asked the first-time politician a few questions including this one:
The manner in which we do business in Mississippi is changing and I’m not certain it is for the better.
Recent events in Ferguson, Missouri—white police officer shoots black man, grand jury doesn’t indict, blacks riot in downtown—have me wondering whether those events could ever occur in Jackson, Mississippi. As I always strive to offer a balanced perspective (which distinguishes me from national news media pundits), I’ll provide both yes and no answers with a full explanation.
