Arrest made in thief's death

Hinds County deputies arrested Wayne Parish last Thursday for the murder of 17 year-old Charles McDonald in July.  McDonald's mother was taking him to Henley-Young when he jumped out of her car and took off running.  He attempted to steal a car at Performance Oil.  Mr. Parish allegedly tried to stop his robbery attempt.  The two struggled with Mr. Parish's gun and the teen was shot several times in the chest. Parish has not yet been arraigned and thus no bond has been set.



 


JPD issued this press release on July 21, 2016:


On Thursday, July 21, 2016, at approx. 12:30 PM, Jackson Police Officers responded to Performance Oil at 920 E. McDowell Rd. regarding a shooting. Upon officers' arrival, it was learned that a black male later identified as Charles McDonald, 17, had been shot multiple times in the upper torso at this location. He was transported to UMMC via AMR where he was pronounced deceased shortly after arrival.

During the course of the investigation, it was learned that McDonald was allegedly burglarizing a gray Lexus car in the parking lot of this business. One of the employees, armed with a handgun, approached McDonald in the parking lot and attempted to stop him. There was a struggle between the McDonald and the employee. The employee shot him during the struggle. The employee was questioned and later released. There were no other injuries reported. The Lexus car did sustain damage that was consistent with it being burglarized.

The case is still under investigation and the findings will be forwarded to the Hinds County Grand Jury for further action. The identity of the employee is not being disclosed at this time.

An interview with McDonald's family is available at the Jackson Free Press website.

Wait. Why is he being arrested? Sounds like he was defending his property and then, fighting for his life when the little sh&t got shot? How is that murder?

Anonymous said...

there has to be more to the story. Why would a person be arrested for protecting his property? A person has the right to protect themselves when another person attacks them while committing a crime.

Why is this current news, it apparently took place last July? Is there a news update on this? At least the report stated the Lexus was not injured.

Add Hinds County grand juries to the list of reasons to avoid that county like the plague. Shopping? Dining? Just passing through? Think of all the interactions that you could have with the criminal element that resides there, and decide whether you want to put your future in the hands of not only a cesspool of criminals, but also a Hinds County grand jury if you have to defend yourself, others, or your property.

"arrest made in thief's death" "Parish has not yet been arraigned....."

Kingsnake said...

Duh. Did you bother to read the post?

Under the castle law, someone burglarizing your vehicle does not constitute lethal force. The law only allows using deadly force when one believes that theirs and others' life was in immanent danger. Seeing someone burglarize your vehicle or someones vehicle (as in this case), especially when you are not in said vehicle does not clear you for deadly use of force. Now if Mr. Parish would have approached without a gun and a struggle would have ensued, his rights would be a little easier to defend. Not a lawyer, but do know the law.

Kingsnake said...

Sit tight. This case isn't going to go the way the JFP wants it to. Just wait until the evidence comes out. The police were not in favor of this indictment.

PittPanther said...

Is the sentence for auto burglary supposed to be death? If someone is trying to steal my car, can I step outside and start firing? Do I have to announce myself? Do I have to give him a chance to stop the birthday? Do I have to wait until he advances on me?

What if he continues the auto burglary, but doesn't threaten me?

We must not be getting the entire story as to why he was arrested, and why it took several months. Police must have learned something.

Anonymous said...

I understand the difference between an arrest and an indictment. What I don't understand is after 6 and a half months, you know who is involved, and you don't have an indictment ready but you arrest. So I assume he is sitting in jail after 5 days of incompetence. I am not legally trained, but I am curious.

there is no indictment and probably won't be one.

I would not shoot someone for trying to steal my car BUT if in the process of trying to stop them they attacked me I would feel justified inusing a firearm. They always have the opportunity to leave the scene

Anonymous said...

Unless there is some new evidence, I wonder why it's taking so long to conclude the investigation. In spite of what some people really think, the kid killed was not an animal. He was obviously a bad person trying to do a bad thing, but when we treat his killing seriously and apply the law as written, we protect everyone. You should have every right to protect yourself from bodily harm, but there is no law that says you can empty your gun on someone committing a burglary and not threatening a life or home. If the facts are in doubt, and they may be, the matter should be investigated thoroughly before simply declaring that another animal got what he deserved. Some day you or one of your loved ones might be an "animal' in somebody's eyes. The law protects everybody.

so a Hinds Grand Jury did indict Mr. Parish? Thus the arrest 6 months later?

When is a good time to use the "he was such a good kid" argument since he had been to the Juvi center 8 times in the past 2 years. Sometimes its the Indian, not the arrow.

PRECISELY!!! Add to that, the question of what happens when you're a victim of Identity Theft. You're supposed to contact your local police. Would you really want Jacktown PoPo having your personal information? Would you expect them to be sympathetic, if you rAn afoul of the law, because of someone's theft of your identity?

That consideration has kept us in Madison County, despite several trophy properties in Eastover, Woodland Hills, and the CCofJ area, which we could have had for a quarter of what they'd cost to construct. As Karen Irby's sentence would seem to confirm, Jackson is now ENEMY TERRITORY.

Anonymous said...

the "victim" changed the rules when he started struggling over the gun if those are true facts. one shot may have been justified, but "several" shots to the chest??? as a former felony prosecutor, I wouldn't want to draw this case if an indictment materializes.

this reminds me of a case several years ago when a Indian chased a guy shoplifting a case of beer into the parking lot and shot him as the thief tried to flee in a vehicle. dead thief turned out to be a violent criminal with a long record recently released from prison. there was in indictment, but the trial jury took about 15 minutes to acquit.

How do you know 2:12?

This is a stunt by RSS to help his case with the sitting jury. White man shot black boy, who eventually died. Doesn't matter that white man was acting in self defense; no crime according to JPD. But now -- as noted -- months later but the weekend before case goes to supposedly 'no news allowed' jury, RSS hauls whitey to grand jury and gets indictment.

Hell, a DA who would try to indict a judge to get him off the case of his dealer certainly wouldn't have problem with indicting an out-of-county guy that might help make his case in the 'hood.

Anonymous said...

@ 2:12, so you are saying a home has more value to steal or rob than a vehicle?

In todays media world, you should be labeled a racist for thinking one has more value than the other.

The car thief and business owner got in a fight in which the business owner had multiple wounds to his face. Pulled out gun and shot repeatedly to defend himself from the beating he was receiving. Detectives refused to take pictures of his wounds so he documented them himself. Multiple witnesses that were not interviewed.

Assaulting a man in an effort to steal his automobile is not burglary. Why do some of you insist on using that term?

Anonymous said...

This is strange. I've had several LEO's to tell me your vehicle is an extension of your home or your business. He was attacked, he shot the criminal, (I don't say it like WAPT....alleged), this punk was a criminal! Now, this man has to be reailroaded through hinds county court system.

I lived in Jackson and loved it for about ten years after college. Had great decade long friend there and I still miss them. This though, is a sign of the times. It shows how strong racism is alive and well among blacks in Jackson. I'm going to join the hated madisonites on this thread and have to say just let them have it already and everybody decent get the hell out of there. It's not worth your life or potential prison time when you have to blast one of those thugs. You are white, they hate you, now it is time to leave the pigs to their squalor.

1) - I've NEVER found anything in MS state law about a vehicle being an extension of your home, though sometimes they are treated similarly. If you know of such a statute, please kindly post it.

2) - You won't find many full time LEO's who've graduated law school.

4:51, assaulting a person to steal his automobile is still against the law, even in Jackson. A person has the right to try to stop a person from taking their property. If a criminal attacks a person when they are trying to protect their property that person has a right to defend themselves.

The criminal is the one forcing the issue and the amount of force needed to stop the criminal may vary. It is always after an unsuccessful attempt at a crime that a criminal tries to use the law to protect himself. Before that time they do not seem that interested in what is lawful or criminal.

Why would I drive out of my way to shop in Jacktown? I may get mugged. I may have my car stolen. I may get shot on purpose or by a stray bullet. And for all these risks, I am forced to pay additional sales tax. I understand if you will believe this, they don't know how to spend the toll tax for shopping in this mecca.

There's lots of bad legal advice in these comments. The "Castle Doctrine" has no applicability to someone exiting a building to stop a car burglary.

Anonymous said...

2:15, could you show us where it is illegal to try to stop a car theft?
Is it illegal to carry a weapon? If a person is attacked is it against the law to defend yourself.
I know Jackson is a criminal sanctuary city but this even a little too much for anyone to believe.

Anonymous said...

I didn't say it was illegal to try to stop a car theft, or that it is illegal to carry a weapon. The accused in this case may have defenses related to self defense. My point was that there is no application of the Castle Doctrine in this situation. The Castle Doctrine only applies to protection of yourself, and your "dwelling" or your car, but only if you are IN (or in close proximity to) the dwelling or car.

Anonymous said...

So,5:16....you are suddenly an expert on close proximity and how it might apply to the accused in this situation? The Castle Doctrine does indeed apply. Switch channels and watch Everybody Loves Raymond.

Ross says the law extends to your place of business and place of employment.
"They are operating a business" Ross added. "They are providing jobs to people or the owners of that convenience store, so why shouldn't the law give them the benefit of the doubt as opposed to the bad guy whose breaking the law. That's the underlying purpose of the castle doctrine is, to say if you are law abiding, we're on your side."

This is what Charles Ross says the law means. Can someone tells us how that is different than what happened?

PittPanther said...

6:55pm, the problem is that we don't KNOW what happened. You think you do, but you don't.

In the JFP today, they said the kid was beating on the cars glass with his "slides," basically, his flip flops. Not sure the car was in imminent danger of being stolen or damaged.

Second, if the car owner comes out and STARTS a fight with someone, can he then turn around and claim self defense and it's ok to kill?

Anonymous said...

Pitt, the only thing I know is what has been posted on here and what I see on the news. I don't know anyone connected with anything. You may have heard other stories but I have seen some of the stories made up by people who seem to remember different than what really happened.
You can believe anything you read in the JFP but I do not.
I do not know how they do things in Jackson as I moved out of there years ago before it became a cesspool. Where I live if I see anyone come running up to my car and beating on it with anything I will go see what is happening and I will be armed. At the least I would think he was deranged, on drugs. I still would want him to leave my property alone. If he decided to attack me I would definitely protect myself as I would know he was dangerous.
I can understand how people in Jackson may not have the same thought process as I do. I worked for everything I have. I didn't steal it. Uncle Sam didn't give it to me. I didn't yell racist loud enough to get it free. I worked for it. People have a different feeling about something they actually worked to get.

Here is a problem. Many of us have businesses in Jackson. We can relocate the business to another city but we cannot move the real estate, much less sell it for what it used to be worth. This is an ongoing problem. Couple it with a bad economy and you are very limited on what you can do. I have moved my business but I cannot sell my real estate which means I have to pay taxes to jackson and hinds. Believe me, if I could dig up the soil and move it I would, but Realistically I can't. Quite frankly, like many many others, I have lost a great deal of net worth by not being able to sell. That is unless you want to rent it to a Nail salon, Weave doing place, check cashing place or cig and beer store. Or, one of the 10,000 used car lots in Jackson.

This man has the same issue. He has a business and his is located on the East end of McDowell which has been there for many years and he has a well respected business. I'm more than likely positive he is in the same boat that many of us are in, but he may elect now to take a HEAVY loss and move. Purchasing more property or renting property sometimes does not fit in your budget due to the Obama economy.

This incident violently disrupted his business income and more than likely his emeployees have been affected. Now, he services gas station equipment and there are not a lot of those type companies around. The pumps go down where you normally get your gas then you have to go somewhere else until people like him can repair them. I wonder how many service calls he may have had to turn down or contracts he could not fulfill. He provides a much needed service, unless you can grab your garden hose and siphon gas from your neighbors, then that will get YOU shot and this whole process starts over.

PittPanther said...

10:35pm, is still not clear to me what the law states as the official stance on what I can do if my car is being burglarized, but I am not in physical danger.

Dude could have called the police, and yelled to the kid to leave the car alone. Why run to the kid, with or without a gun? He didn't know if the kid was armed. Did he take that into consideration?

Why choose to escalate the situation, given that you're not in physical harm? You go out to confront an unknown person, and then what? All kinds of bad things could happen. Does that gun in your pocket make you think you're invincible?

Anonymous said...

Enough is enough. I know in great detail what happen. I do not have to depend on the New, The Jackson Free Press or any other source of lies. What everyone seems to have missed is the security cameras at the business. If they did not miss them they must not know that you can go back and burn what those cameras saw on to a DVD(three copies to be exact). The JPD got one copy and I have been in custody of the other two up until this past Friday when one copy was given to Wayne's Attorney. I still have custody of one of the originals. Here are the facts and I would ask that none the the liberals try to argue, you will be wrong once again..
1- The kid did have the choice twice to leave. He had originally walked past the business and turned around and came back. The second time was when Wayne told him to leave the property and go on.
2- It was a manhole cover over a water line cut-off valve that he was using to beat on the window, not slides. While it is plastic, he did manage to break the window. There was right at $5,000 damage to the car.
3- The Kid is seen crouched down coming around the car in an attempt to get behind Wayne, which he did.
4- It is said there was a struggle. In the video, it looked like much more than a struggle. The scratches to Wayne's face ans neck back that.
5- Wayne almost got away from McDonald at one point, but McDonald managed to get another grip and pulled Wayne back into him and that is when McDonald grabbed and attempted to get the gun away. That is when the shots were fired.
6- It is said that McDonald was shot multiple times. And I do guess that is accurate. He was shot twice.
7- The video does show his mother pulling into the drive way just as the shots are fired. There are claims out there that don't seem possible that being true. And remember, the truth here is not my opinion, but in the video.
8- There are two people that come into the video that got there quick. they got there quick because they were on top of the hill close enough to see and hear everything. The prosecution is hoping they will not be called as witnesses.

Now there are things I know that are not in the video, such as his drug of choice, and it is not weed. I know what he was up to earlier in the day and it was not good.

Do not get me wrong, I am not saying there was not a tragedy in all this. But it had nothing to do with Wayne's action, but the position McDonald put everyone in. Believe me, I agree not to the degree of McDonald Mother, but this even has shaken many people.

12:22, Pitt, the clip of what really happened makes a liar out of JFP. Maybe you should take that as a suggestion on where you get your news. According to the law the man was in physical danger when he was attacked. Are you trying to say a person does not have the right to go out on their property and tell people who are attempting to steal from them to leave? Do you actually think the thug has the right to attempt to steal a car and attack the owner? Then you think the owner does not have the right to protect himself?
Son, you need son schooling.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
