If all of these stupid as* wannabe thugs would grow up and quit trying to be gang-bangers...this was in MARTIN TN not South Central LA! Absolutely ridiculous that this young man was killed! What were they fighting over? Some thug didn't like another thugs rims on his car? Somebody disrespected someone else because their hat was the wrong color? If u idiots want to be in gangs MOVE! Cut your dreadlocks, pull up your pants, tie your shoes, get jobs and do something with yourselves!

Some mother today is feeling a pain that inconceivable, and a pain that should never be inflicted on any human being. As a mother I can't even imagine what this lady must be feeling at this very moment. My heart aches for her. If everyone (including myself) could only think before they act or speak- that the other person is someones son, daughter, mother, father, or friend. The possibility of it being a accident makes this even more senseless. I'm didn't know Mr. Parker personally, or anything about his home life, so this is in no way directed at the situation at hand, but i will say that when it comes to most of our youth, acting like gang bangers and thugs falls back into the laps of we as parents. If you will notice the majority of the young men that wanna be "hard" grow up in a home where no father is present. Perhaps they act, and feel the need to be act "hard" because they had to grow up "hard". They probably get a first hand experience of just how bad/hard life can really be- and actually this probably includes more children than we realize. I am a single mother with the father figure absent and no where in the picture, including no child support, no christmas/ birthday card etc. Even though i consider myself to be a hard ass mama, that enforces respect and discipline and raises my children to have morals and values, there is still no stronger words that will ever be spoken to a child than....."I'm gonna tell your daddy!" I rememember as a child a fear coming over me everytime i heard those words- but it was a healthy fear, kind of like how we fear God. We know he is good and loves us- but if we get to actin crazy.... he's gonna handle it. The absence of Fathers in the home is one of America's biggest down falls- so before we are so quick to bash the youth, maybe we should take a step back to where the problem originated. I feel sorry for our youth, and as I've already stated- what I have just written is not directed at Mr. Parkers situation, as i didn't know him personally, nor do i know his mother personally, but may God be with her during this extremely difficult time. God Bless!!

It was gd's fighting vl's. That's gang related. And if he was so sweet why does his facebook page have so many pics of him n a jail cell with GANG tats on his hands? If he was such a sweet and kind person, why didn't he stay n bed instead of getting up when called n the middle of the night to go to a gang fight? My heart goes out to his family for there loss. But at the same time let's be real and not paint a picture of a model citizen that was at the wrong place at the wrong time because we all know that's not true. It WAS a senseless act of violence and if our people don't grow up we can never get past things like this. We have to change our thought process and develop good decision making skills. Think first. I hope they catch whoever did it and bury them under the jail.

umm maybe he has all those tattoos because he is in a gang buthope it aint true you got it wrong, it wasNOT gang related, take it from somebody that knows okay?? i mean why are ya'll even discussing this on topix? i dont even post anything on here, but i will take up for him, he has a past, and he was changing his life around for the better, he went out to have fun one night, he wasnt lookin for trouble, he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, but umm your family and friends wouldnt appreciate if you were gone and people were talkin about you oon topix, so lets not do it to justin also!!!!!!!!

Again. Gangs fighting. A gang member dies as a result n what is a known gangsta disciple hangout. Sugar coat it all u want. That's gang related. And how would u know? Did u shoot him? Someone who KNOWS better than u told me he went there because of the fight. So get ur facts str8. Fact is a man's life was taken over nothing. R.I.P. Loco. U will be missed

No he is a rolling 60. Which is part of the crips. If its a lie he told it. Sorry that it happened and it is very tragic but when u get done it is a combination of bad choices and terrible decisions.
