Jackson City councilman Kenneth Stokes says it’s time to do something about the JASCO store on Woodrow Wilson.
Stokes says the 24 hour operating time draws a criminal element to the area. He says recent violence simply underscores his argument. Following a shootout on Wednesday, he wants the place closed.
“We must send a message throughout the City of Jackson that we are not going to accept convenience stores that operate as criminal dens. It’s not going to happen.”
Ward 3 councilman said he’d rather see an empty building at that location than to risk losing another life.
