After Jackson Free Press Story, City Council Investigates Mayor

On Sept. 1, Jackson Free Press Reporter Adam Lynch broke the news that Mayor Frank Melton and "a team of young men" had broken into a private home, apparently believing it to be a crackhouse, and sledgehammered the contents. Since then, a number of other press outlets have picked up the story, Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood's office has begun an investigation into the incident, and this morning, City Councilman Ben Allen announced that he would call for a Council-led investigation Friday if professional investigators have not yet finished.
