There has to be more to the story than we are being told. Sure wish we would be told the truth. From what we have been told this man is getting screwed.
Add me on to the list of people who will never spend a dime in the city of Jackson again.

Unbelievable even for Hinds County.

Let's see here; Mr. Parish is white; the car thief is black; but the thief's mother said "HE SUCH A GOOD BOY"!!!!!

I moved out of Jackson 10 years ago. I don't even eat, buy gas, or shop in Jackson anymore.

Sounds like Mr. Parish was trying to defend his livelihood. I would be willing to bet this man has been burglarized multiple times before. The business friendly climate of Jackson/Hinds County continues to take hits.

for those curious about the ADA "signature", that gibberish stems from Walter Bleck. Guess he's afraid to put a legible signature on a murder indictment...

Makes you wonder, about Mississippi justice, a black man in Grenada is indicted for a child's hot car death, a white woman in Madison is not, and a white man is for protecting property...
What's right/wrong with this picture?

All the more reason to stay out of Jackson!

As an attorney, I am always amazed at how people can read information on the media and be in a position to determine the truth of a matter and know what the outcome should be. A grand jury indicted him. Can we let the process work before we determine that this is one big injustice???

Let's just rename Jackson Little Detroit, close all the white owned businesses there and give it to the thugs; watch how long it takes for them to completely destroy it! In the interim, do not give them any operating money and see how long it takes for the citizens with some common sense to take charge.

"As an attorney" I ask that everybody just settle down and let the process work. The good people of Jackson will convict this white honkey and that will be that. Move along now....

i would not leave the shop, where I worked, use deadly force to protect a co workers car from a potential thief. that is what I recall of this crime. also that is just me, deadly force to save life. Now is he within his rights? Assume once the conflict got underway, up close, assume the shooter felt the need to defend his life?
a teaching moment on the use of the tool of last resort, a gun. even if the shooter is not convicted, he will be ruined, you lawyers know this is going to be one big bill.

6:27 you are absolutely correct. The guy will be ruined and the criminal defense lawyers are licking their chops. I've no clue what this guy is worth but you can bet your ass they will get every penny of it.

6:27pm is the most reasonable person on this thread.

Once the guy left his office to confront the kid, he chose to escalate the situation. Then he chose to bring a gun.

Well, he successfully defended his car. All it cost him is his life savings, and fear of prison for the next year until his trial concludes. Sometimes, being "right" isn't the best choice.

You know, in a "normal" city you can almost make the case the car owner over reacted. However, think about this statistic: AS A PERCENTAGE OF POPULATION, Jackson, MS had a higher murder rate in 2016 than freakin' CHICAGO!!!!!! It's no wonder people are on edge all the time in this city! Statistically, it's understandable why they are!!!

It's terrible when we have allowed a thug culture to rule the city and bend the law. This man worked hard for what he has and felt compelled to do what any person would do. Given that, he doesn't have a chance. Now, had he been in another locale then the issue would be he was protecting his property. Put yourself in his place for a moment.

Anonymous said...

Pitt, It may cost the man his life savings and fear of prison for a while but you seem to forget what it cost the criminal.
In this case I like the man's chances much better.

10:41 The problem is: the car owner is going to be tried by a jury of the BURGLAR'S peers, not his. This IS Jackson, after all....

Not Guilty - Move Along.. said...

Business owners have a right (and arguably an obligation) to protect the property of their customers while that property is in their possession.

People have a right to be armed in this state. Being armed does not affect/preclude the first rule above.

A man who is armed and trying to halt a felony in progress who is then confronted in a life threatening way has a right to defend himself using deadly force.

Remember: The man did not run out into the parking lot waving and shooting his pistol. He drew it only after fearing for his life. Even a jury of 12 Do-Raggers will see that.

The Castle Doctrine does not permit the use of deadly force to protect property, though it obviously allows deadly force to protect life. This should be decided based on whether or not this man felt a threat to his life when he confronted the burglar. If he cannot articulate that threat, then he will be convicted. Sadly, as has been mentioned, the jury pool in Hinds County will not be giving any benefits of the doubt here based on race. The same could just as likely be true in a predominantly white county elsewhere. That said, if he is convicted and there is evidence to support his proper use of force, it will get overturned on appeal. Of course, he will likely be bankrupt as a result of the legal process.

7:59: Please read

The so-called "Castle Doctrine" is based on Old English common law, which says a person is free to defend their homes and property without criminal or civil consequences.

Anonymous said...

11:16 the problem as I see it is there are not enough of the car owners peers left in Jackson to make up a jury.

Mississippi's "Castle Doctrine" is codified at Miss. Code §97-3-15, which states: “The killing of a human being… shall be justifiable... (e) When committed by any person in resisting any attempt unlawfully to kill such person or to commit any felony upon him, or upon or in any dwelling, in any occupied vehicle, in any place of business, in any place of employment or in the immediate premises thereof in which such person shall be;.... Notice the requirement that the criminal be IN or in the "immediate premises thereof" and "occupied vehicle." I certainly wouldn't rely on this to run out of my office to shoot someone who is attempting to steal an unoccupied car in the parking lot.

I might rely on the castle doctrine in this situation if I had read the first Newell case out of Lowndes County.

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.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease.
