Parish's son accuses D.A. of "grandstanding"

Update: There were two outstanding warrants for McDonald's arrest at the time of the shooting. One involved a police chase. The motion for bond states that he was "involved in a house burglary and almost shot by homeowner." See motion posted below.

"Criminal is what I think is going on and what has happened to my dad" said the son of accused killer Wayne Parish.  He was indicted for murder in the shooting death of 17 year-old Charles McDonald last June. The shooting occurred when McDonald jumped out of his mom's car and ran away when she attempted to take him to Henley-Young Youth Detention Center. Parish confronted McDonald as he broke into a secretary's car.  Security camera video shows a struggle over the gun taking place when McDonald was killed. JPD declined to arrest him at the time.  The police report is posted below.


Josh Parish, the son of Wayne Parish, said his father shot Charles McDonald in self-defense.  Josh said Performance Oil employees heard McDonald breaking into the car. Wayne Parish and three women were the only employees on the premises.  His father went outside with a Smith & Wesson .38 revolver.  Josh said "my dad's intention was to scare him off.  He just wanted him to leave. He told him to leave several times but he refused to do so.  My dad was trying to keep the car between him and the kid.  The kid finally got to him and the struggle for the gun began.  He was a pretty big kid."   He said his father even fired a warning shot into the ground.

The family provided a copy of this photo that was taken after the shooting.  Wayne went to the doctor for an examination shortly after the incident.  The picture shows two marks on his face.


Josh said his father told him "I thought if he got that gun, he was going to kill me."  Josh said that at some point in the struggle, the gun was fired and McDonald was shot twice in the chest.  Josh said his family didn't think Wayne would face criminal charges because JPD officers said they were classifying the homicide as one of self-defense and thus justifiable.

A Hinds County grand jury indicted Wayne Parish for murder in September but he was not arrested until December 29.  The family had no idea that Wayne was arrested.  He did not show up for work that morning.  The owner of the company was concerned and called the Copiah County Sheriff.  Deputies conducted a welfare check at his home.  Possessions such as his keys and cellphone were present.  A search of local jails and hospitals yielded no results.  The Sheriff finally saw that there was an active arrest warrant for Parish in the computer system and investigated.  He informed the family that Wayne was arrested for murder and that the warrant classified him as "armed and dangerous".

Wayne is represented by attorney Merrida Coxwell.  He will be arraigned Tuesday morning in Judge Kidd's courtroom.  The prosecutors assigned to Judge Kidd are Shontae Washington, Kimalon Campbell, and Greta Mack.  Mr. Coxwell has also filed a motion to set bond.  Josh said the District Attorney has "no interest in talking to us."
 "None of this makes any sense to me", he said. He continued: "I’d like to know what evidence was showed to indict him for murder I.  For me, I think the D.A. overreached so they could keep him in there as long as possible. For political grandstanding."

Josh insisted on addressing any charges of alleged racism that has been made in social media.  He said "my father has four mixed-race grandchildren.  He's not racist.  He doesn't have a racist bone in his body.  My father lost a child when my brother drowned as a kid.  He's been through alot.  The last thing he wanted to do was shoot that kid that day and see that mother experience the tragedy of losing a child. I can promise you he shot McDonald in self-defense."

The younger Mr. Parish also said that he offered to provide copies of the security camera video (posted below) of the shooting to the local media.  He said only WJTV accepted the offer but only posted a few seconds of the video.   WJTV didn't provide any coverage of the video until this website posted it last Thursday.  



Kingfish note: The Parish family also released this video about Wayne Parish. JJ has also been able to confirm with JPD sources that JPD considered the shooting to be one of self-defense.

Who arrested him at his residence if the local Sheriff's office was not aware? HCSO would not have jurisdiction down there would they? They would have to go through the county or local law enforcement agency.

Not only should the charges be dropped, in my opinion, the prosecutors that have brought these charges should be disbarred. If that were to happen, this man should file suit against the prosecutors to recover his legal fees. This is akin to something you would see in South Africa.

All my friends stay out of Hinds County.
The govt. is so perverse.
Thank you for getting the thug off the street.
No judicial, or govt. in Jackson or Hinds county have an interest in doing this.
I feel so sorry of for the mother & the police. This thug got up with a evil crowd.
He didn't even respect his family enough to obey.
This is what is wrong the young teens today they have no respect, obeys, or conform with civil law and order. They don't even respect a loaded 38 pistol.
This gentleman did Hinds county a great service by taking him out.
No telling how many robberies or killing this thug would have committed until he was taken out. No telling how long we would have to warehouse the thug at taxpayer expense until this thug was taken out. No telling how many police this thug would have killed.

While I am sure many of our residents have been brainwashed to first judge all behavior as whitey and blacky, which is just not according to our laws, this is an honest working man defending an employee's property parked on private property. When someone is breaking into a vehicle, I believe his defense is proper.

If this goes to trial, he better get a change of venue, or we will be reading about this for years to come. Fair trial and Hinds county do NOT go together as anyone with any brain knows.

@ 9:05 AM Stay out of Jackson. You're not built for it
stick to internet forums, and living in that bubble.

Anonymous said...

9:38, it sounds like many of the people living in Jackson are not built for it. Just look at the number of murders last year. Look at all of the businesses moving out of the city. Look at all of the abandoned homes.
You are very right. Not a lot of people want to live in such an area. Those that are left are mainly of two groups. One group cannot sell their business or homes for enough to get out. The other group lives behind gates. The rest are mainly feral people.

@9:32

Yes, I fled Jackson. My family and I made the decision to get out after years of agonizing over leaving our home and the once beautiful and safe city in which we had been raised and spent much of our adult life.
I will list a few of the reasons they caused us to leave Jackson.
*Kids couldn't wear their favorite coats and shoes to school because thug students took them, or should I use that dreadful word STOLE, and threatened bodily harm if they reported it.
*Correspondence sent home by teachers that read as if it had been written by a kindergarten student.
*Property taxes that got so high that the monthly escrow for the taxes was equal to the P&I payment.
*Property crime that cost me thousands of dollars. In one instance the thief was caught, arrested and charged with the theft, but the esteemed DA chose not to prosecute.
*Failing infrastructure that left us without potable water for long periods on several occasions.
*Damage to vehicles caused by streets that are not fit to drive on in a tank.
The list could go on but I hope you get my point from these few items. I didn't leave Jackson without much consideration. When things got so bad that my wife and kids feared for their safety I knew it was time to leave my hometown. I am not a Jackson hater. I love Jackson and would love nothing more than to see it once again rise to the great city it was in the past. At that time I would be honored to move back to Jackson and enjoy the many great things it once had to offer. Until the streets are drivable, the infrastructure is brought up to date and the crime is controlled I will stay in my small town where I can walk the streets at night without safety concerns, drive to store without knocking the tires off my car, turn on the tap and know safe drinking water is will come out of the faucet, not have to take a second mortgage to pay property taxes, know the teachers are educating the students properly, fully expect the DA to prosecute any criminals, etc...

Oh my stars, did 9:32 just say what I thought? "Many of you took your money, skills, votes, and sense of duty to your community and fled." Now blaming people that have left Jackson for the condition of Jackson. Jackson is not in it's current condition because people left. People are leaving because of what Jackson has become. This is the problem with the liberal left. It is always the fault of some one else. The system failed, not enough resources, need more money poured in, etc.
Now you are not outraged that a person defending himself is charged with Murder 1. And you wonder why people and businesses are leaving.
How many times are there videos on the news showing people being robbed at a store, or breaking in and stealing a ATM machine. one if not both daily. And you wonder why people are leaving. And you wonder why people are leaving.
Now as far as another question. It was Federal Marshals that went to arrest him. Now granted I was not told this directly, but I have it from a reliable source that the Federal Marshals were told that he shot a kid 5 times with a high powered rifle. So how do you think they down there prepared. They were not real happy.

I don't think the DA has time to be grandstanding on this case. I think this indictment is the result of an incompetent group of ADAs.

I moved from Jackson to Hinds County when Jackson was declining, so I could least cut my losses before everything I invested at at my home was gone. Now the 'virus' is spreading to Hinds County and getting worse...Screw moving out a little farther, I'm going to move out of the state before my property value craps out on me again. I'm tired of what I keep seeing around here, I've been burned for the last time....and I'm done.

Anonymous said...

There was an earlier comment that blamed the loss of businesses for this and similar behavior; Performance Oil was a Jackson business that is now closing up shop and moving because of this incident. Until people start taking responsibility for their actions, rather than blaming something or someone, Jackson and other large cities will continue to lose businesses, money, and decent public servants? Additionally, I found out that the DA's office used the Federal Marshals to pick up Mr. Parish and bypass any kickback from local authorities to this unbelievable travesty of justice!

Jackson becoming a cesspool is bad enough. What is worse is there are people who enjoy living in a cesspool and cannot understand why other people want to get out of a cesspool.
Where a person decides they want to live is a choice they get to make. Some just like wading around in a cesspool. Most do not. If that is something you desire there is a city just for you.

His son and everyone else needs to understand that Mr.Parrish made the choice to approach this young man with a gun over a property crime, where he wasn't threatened nor was his life in danger before he made said approach. As far as the grand jury is concerned Mr. Parrish was the aggressor. The laws are on the books, read em and weep.

Yes, the laws are indeed on the books. Watch the video again. McDonald charges at him, backs him up, he grabs the gun. Both of their hands are on the gun when it fires. Parish has marks on his face.

The opposite of "flee" is to stay and stand your ground and fight. Fight to save Jackson from the thugs and whatnot. So the people saying this was an injustice and he shouldn't have come after the thug breaking into a vehicle are also the ones saying this happens because the white folks fled to Madison/Rankin counties and allowed Jackson to fall into the shape it is in now. So, if that's the case, and the folks who fled did stay and fight, you know what would happen? Correct, a lot more dead thugs and political grandstanding/pandering to make it a civil rights case/race issue, versus what it really is which is fatherless homes, raising, and general thug culture. But the ones saying this wasn't deserved and Parish shouldn't have come after him, think we should just fold and let the thugs do their thing, or should we stay and fight to make it better? You cant have it all and I feel pretty certain this thug wouldn't have done anything different if Mr. Parish would have just gave him a talking to. You know, 8 times in juvi and all...

Sometimes a man has to stand up and be a man. Here we have an example of a man who did just that. There are not that many men left in Jackson. We need to do everything we can to encourage the few that are left. Instead of charging them with a crime we should have the mayor giving them some recognition for what they are forced to do to help the city.

The people of Jackson should take a better look at who they are electing into office. Instead of men who spend most of their working time chasing every woman who works for them they should consider electing a person who will put their life on the line.

Jackson needs more men like Mr. Parish. Give the young fatherless boys in Jackson someone to look up to. Let them see a real man.

Anonymous said...

Please post the video that allegedly shows McDonald charging him and grabbing the gun. This video shows Parish taking the law into his own hands and being the aggressor. It appears that McDonald is trying to get away and protect himself. Post the one that shows otherwise. Also, I'm not sure what the photo is supposed to prove. Assuming those marks are even from that incident and were actually caused by McDonald, a kid has a right to defend himself when a lunatic runs at him with a gun. As for what the kid was doing, we don't know because he's dead and we haven't seen that video.

Anonymous said...

You missed the point Kingfish, he should never have confronted the guy, he could have called the police, taken pictures etc. The moment he pulled out his gun he was the aggressor period. BTW he will not serve a day in jail for this. In a civil court he will be found liable it's the law folks. I don't like it either.

2:21, the video was posted right here on this forum on Jan 5, 2017. It clearly shows the thug trying to break into a car. Shows him going by the car a couple of times them picking up several objects and uses them to try to break into the car.
Even another thug should be able to look at the video and see what is happening. Of course we have one on here that gets his news from JFP. He will tell you the thug wears water meter covers, asphalt, and pipe for shoes. It really does or matter if you want to look at the video or depend on lies. Other people will look at the video and try to explain to you if you have a problem understanding.

2:21 maybe you need to ENLARGE you screen a bit. It appears the rest of us and the law enforcement officers who investigated the call, including the video and other witnesses, have no trouble understanding the facts as they are.

Why don't you open your eyes and look at the video? Parish is backing up when he is on the far side of the car. McDonald is charging at him .
Both of their hands are on the gun.

A kid has a right to defend himself when he is committing a crime?

I hope the woman who owns the car will file for damages to the car against the boy's mother. It is the only way to stop more lawsuits brought on by her for the loss of life. You have to get the thugs to realize you fight fire with fire. Mr. Parrish will be bankrupt by the time he is through defending himself. It is so unfortunate for everyone.

The people that don't understand why a criminal getting killed commiting a crime is justified are the real reason people are leaving Jackson. Criminals are everywhere, people that don't understand self defense and a right to protect personal property from theft can be moved away from. Some of these clowns would be asking for charges if Ms. Temple had been armed and defended herself from the savage that killed her.

For all my dear friends still living in Jackson(I have quite a few that I seriously care about) please take note: Under no circumstances should you defend yourself unless you are holed up in your home or you are being monitored by a security camera. Even with a security camera you run a risk of being rail roaded.

Most of us reasonable people can see this was clearly self defense and feel confident that he will eventually get his justice and walk free to move his business/home/productivity to Madison or Rankin. But what would his odds look like if there hadn't been any camera? Pretty bleak I suppose

Anonymous said...

The sad fact is the couple of posters we see on here that think thugs have rights over their victims are a sample of the majority of Jackson citizens. They were raised to believe that. The non existing parents did not teach them any better. The failing schools didn't teach them any better. Even the law enforcement comedy act didn't teach them and better. The only hope the good citizens of Jackson have is the thugs will kill each other off. That will not happen as they breed as fast as they commit crimes. Their offspring will be the same as them.

Look around, people of Jackson. Look at what you have done to the young people of Jackson. How many generations do you think it will take to remove these parasites?

This whole horrible occurrence was caused by the city of Jackson. If the city would have provided a suitable public transportation system, this young man could have hopped a bus, train or street car and left the juvenile detention center quickly and safely without bothering the nearby businesses. It's JATRAN's fault!!

Give me 10 minutes and I could find 10 things to blame. It's the kid's fault. Mr. Parish would have never left his place of work had he not heard the commotion of this kid trying to break into the car. McDonald had every opportunity to keep walking and not engage in the criminal behavior that caused this confrontation.

Here is the deal. A lot of the liberal democrats are only able to think about one thing at a time. Yes you do not see the initial attack by McDonald. That is why the JPD used both the video and the two eye witnesses that are not employees of Performance oil or the mother. They fill in the gap as well as that Wayne told him to leave repeatedly. This is why they DO NOT SUPPORT THIS CHARGE. Please keep in mind, in addition to the video, there are 2 witnesses. From their view point they could see the entire thing. So Wayne's defense is not just based on the video even though there is a small portion you do not see in it. I would add that there have been no less than 12 people that have seen the video, not including the JPD, before it was released, and none have said that Wayne did anything wrong. All were in law enforcement with two exception, those 2 were Judges I know. And by the way, the 2 judges say the Castle Law does apply. There is a key word that some may not know the definition of. Premise, go look it up.

No doubt, this was a pure act of self defense. The acting DA surely is trying to make a name for himself. Mr. Parish has made a good name for himself and makes friends everywhere he goes. The most likable guy anyone will every meet. He constantly gives of his time and is always there to help others out that are in need. Wayne Parish is the most loving Father and Grand father that anyone could ever have. For something like this to happen to such a good man is absolutely unthinkable. He never intended for that young man to die and if the young man would have asked for food or for a ride. There is no doubt Wayne would have helped him. But the boy clearly attacked him after Wayne gave the boy every opportunity to leave. Wayne Parish is being wrongfully charged and his rights have been taken away. A petition needs to be signed for Freeing Wayne Parish and for removing the DA. This DA is clearly breaking the law and is not competent in the law. 1st degree murder is a plotted and planned event. This event, definately was not.

If the laws of MS do not include the ability to go out and confront an unarmed person trying to break into your car in hopes of " scaring him away", then Madison doesn't have the laws to allow confrontation rather than to have the police handled it either.

Juries pledge to follow the law. Some juries express their unwillingness to do so but you can't blame a jury that lives up to their pledge. Nor can you blame those who see their duty as adhering to existing law rather than picking and choosing which laws to enforce.

I would suggest to you there are some dangers in allowing one person to pick and choose what laws should and shouldn't be enforced.

It's still a free country. You can live anywhere you want or leave if another country will take you.

What I object to is that you find it necessary to criticize both the place and people you left simply because it and they didn't meet your lifestyle and financial criteria.

What I object to is that you are NOT informed about progress and improvements and are defending your choice at the expense of those trying to improve YOUR state capitol.

What I object to is the fact that many of the problems Jackson faces were created by administrations while you were a resident and didn't happen overnight. You were blissfully ignorant or didn't object to prior policies and the neglect that created some of these problems but you now expect them to be solved overnight with fewer financial resources that existed when you lived in Jackson.

Worse, you are apparently blissfully ignorant in the future problems you are likely to face in Madison. You aren't creating a lasting community but one that has a shiny fa├žade. Again you will leave the problems for others because you are tending to Jackson's business rather than your own.

Have you driven on some of the roads in the older subdivisions of Madison? Annadale's roads weren't holding up well last I rode down them and even if they've been re-surfaced since, they will not hold up over time. They haven't lasted as long as Jackson's roads did for a reason.

Your neighborhoods and shopping areas are only as good as your developers and how well they prepped the subdivision and whether or not your builder was one who cared about the " bones" since building codes are poorly enforced.

Everybody and everything gets old. Everybody and everything is only as " good" as they were created, cared for and maintained.

Talk to your elected representatives about changing laws.

Otherwise, unless you have a constructive suggestion or solution, mind your own business.

Maybe the whoring around at the police dept? Whatever it is, please precious snowflake, don't point your finger at the real problem and call a spade a spade. Sure, no administration is perfect and Jackson has had some blunders, but those are nothing in comparison to this bunch of incompetent idiots.

PS, I object to your blissful ignorance. You know nothing of which you speak of. NOTHING. But please, continue to tell the rest of the metro how dumb we are.

Agreed with many. There should be no charges. This is a racially motivated action against a white man justifiably killing an aggressive young black thug. Watch the video. The mother showed absolutely no concern of he son being shot, while she got out of her pickup. She chose to play on her cell phone instead of going to the side of her son. These people have no morals.

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.
