“I’ve been in this department for 28 years, I worked in homicide for 9 years. it’s hurtful when anyone loses their life, I’m not minimizing the loss of life to anyone. But when you have a child, a baby that’s life is just starting, and you decide as an adult to take that away. That hits a little differently. It registers differently and we’re going to make sure that we don’t allow or normalize that type of criminal behavior. I am absolutely committed to reducing violence in the city of Jackson.”
