Jackson Has String of Assault Convictions

In a startling revelation by Liz Nelson and Reed Williams in the Daily Progress, Republican City Council candidate Kenneth Jackson has been found to have been convicted four times for assault and battery, with a knife on three of those occasions. In 1985, the 18-year-old Jackson stabbed a classmate several times; in 1990, he got in a fight, assaulted a police officer and resisted arrest; in 1993, he went after a coworker with a knife; and in 1994, he cut a man in the torso after the man slapped him. Jackson sees no reason why any of this should concern voters. “They were years ago,” he said. “That’s one of the great things about our society. It gives you a chance to change.”
