you must be a kid too. 22 is not a grown man, the only people that think that are the people that age. believe me, when you get to 40 and 50 and up, you look back and realize that you werent grown like you thought you were. i do believe that there is a lesson to be learned from this. 1) parents, be watchful, and aware and active with your children. 2) friends should look out for each other and help keep each other on the right path. 3) everyone can call these kids (wanna be thugs) and all kinds of names, but the fact is , they killed someone. "wannabe" is no longer correct. they are flat out murderers. we should all be careful. and finally 4) community...how many young children have to suffer a fate like this before we all stand up and run this shit out of our area? honestly, the time is now, before it gets too big. i for one am going to try and start something to help eliminate this problem. i truly hope that others will follow the path with me!

i understand umph. you are absolutely right. NOONE should lose their life over words, or even disagreements, or different views. there i plenty of people that i dont like, and several people that i just flat out can not stand, but i would never wish death on them.

My plans for Friday night. Go to Hut Nut where other gang members are. Initiate fight or be in the wrong place when shots are fired. Ummmm I dont do clubs for the simple fact their not safe. I dont jump out of airplanes, nor do I bungee jump, sell drugs, play chicken with a train. As a grown up I do things that are responsible and won't land me in any trouble. Fun isn't always necc and if it is there are other ways to have fun guys!!!!!!

Even if that bullet was meant for him, in witch i just can't see that happening, God called him home. He is no longer suffering. But i wont say he is in a better place because aint nothing better then being with your family it pisses me too here that.. Justin you was an amazing person.& he really wasn't out to hurt nobody. he went to have a good time. Like any other 22 year old. and he didn't sell drugs he just got outta lock up and was trying to better him self. & ya he was a lil wild but what 21 or 22 ain't these days. He was charming and knew how to make everyone laugh it was still senseless. A mother is waking up with her son gone.& a family is grieving right now. & my heart goes out to the family and especially his mother he loved her so much! Justin i already miss you I've been missing them phone calls. I've been missing them laughs we would have together. The way you would always say something crazy if i didn't answer your call right then. I won't never forget them.. Your an angel now. so sore high in the heavenly sky's. God has a special place for you sweetie. i love you I'm still at loss for words i never told you what you meant to me. you just knew i loved you locco:) lol Justin i know you hated being called that but you used to let me.. Mane i miss everything bout you right now. The more i think about it i wished u never even went to that place that night:( Now you see why i told u that very same morning i don't trust nobody at no clubs. My heart is still breaking. and I'm praying for the fam. Your forever in my heart. and will be missed by many. a son of one a friend of many MAY YOU REST IN PEACE CUZ. Words couldn't explain how bad i wish you where still here with me. i love you so much watch over us now.

Wow. Dude was 22. That's a grown ass man!
Yeah he was 22 but he was also someones child. You must not have kids your dam self. Someone is hurting right now because they know there son won't never be walking in tha door again. There lies an empty bed, there lies a empty pillow. THERE sets his clothes he won't ever wear again. A pair of shoes he wont walk in ever again. At the end of the day a mother is heart bookend. Justin was someones child. Sandy I'm. so sorry for your loss. I don't know you but your son talked about you so much i feel like i do. I'm praying for your family and all his friends who are copping with the lost of a very sweet and precious young man.

yea but they was also old pictures too. he hardly ever got on facebook. and he might have been in a gang but he still WASN'T OUT LOOKING FOR TROUBLE. GOD CALLED HIM HOME EVERYONE CAN SAY WHAT THEY WANTED BUT HE WAS STILL SOMEONE'S CHILD. WHAT IF IT WAS YOUR CHILD, BROTHER OR SISTER. HE MIGHT HAVE BEEN IN THE WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME BUT IT WAS STILL UN CALLED FOR. HE WAS MURDERED AND I PRAY TO GOD JUSTICE IS DONE THE RIGHT WAY.. HIS MOTHER DESERVES TO KNO WHAT HAPPENED TO HER CHILD AND WE WON'T GIVE UP TILL THIS PERSON IS BEHIND BARS. IT MIGHT TAKE TIME BUT IT STILL WASN'T WORTH KILLING THIS YOUNG MAN. PPL HAVE PASTS BUT SOME ALSO LEARN TO CHANGE AS WELL. HW JUST GOT MIXED UP WITH THE WRONG CROWD THAT NIGHT. U CAN'T SAY NOTHING THAT WILL CHANGE MY MIND ABOUT JUSTIN SORRY HE WAS A GOOD PERSON TO MOST THAT ACTUALLY KNEW HIM. GETS UR FACTS ST8

Ok I told myself not to read this forum because I knew somebody was going to say something to piss me off. Obviously you did not know him at all, so why the fuck are you even commenting on this forum you moron?! Just because someone is in a gang does not make them a bad person! Justin was one of the sweetest, most kind hearted people on this earth and those pictures obviously do not reflect that. How simple minded can you be to judge someone based on some pictures?! Obviously he made some bad decisions, and he pretty much grew up while he was in prison. He did what he had to do to survive in there, and he still never lost himself. Regardless of the interpretation you get from his pictures, he was a great kid with a very kind heart. He made people smile just by simply keeping a smile on his face at all times. No matter what was going on, he always had a smile on his face. I'm smiling just thinking about it now. Anyway, please get a life and find something better to do than get on forums and post ignorant comments about people you know absolutely nothing about. That is all.

I know people loved him...but quit making excuses. So your basically saying he had to join a gang in prison to survive? I have never known a good hearted gang member.

I don't know this family, but why don't you guys start another forum to discuss gangs and clubs. It is bad enough that this family lost this kid. No need to question his bad decisions on this stupid site. You are just adding hurt.

FIRST OF ALL, WHO IS MAKING EXCUSES?! I in no way feel the need to justify anything about this situation. You posted an ignorant comment, and I posted a response to it. I never said he joined a gang in prison. I said he did what he had to do to survive, which is why he was unable to come home early. You made your own assumptions from my comment, just like you made your own assumptions from looking at his pictures! You've never known a good hearted gang member? That's precisely my point in my original post...You didn't know Justin so why the fuck are you even commenting on a forum titled "Justin Parker"???? I couldn't care less what you or anyone else has to say about anything! I'm just concerned about his family hearing about ignorant comments that were made on this site, so I thought I would try to soften the blow by disecting your stupid ass post! Justin was his mother's pride & joy! She is lost & grieving her only son right now while you are sitting at your computer thinking it's cool to type comments you would never say to anybody's face. GET A LIFE!

I am sorry I was not there for I would have eliminated a lot of the problem for I never would have ALLOWED people of certain interest in-in the first place. Though I never had kids of my own and the ones here in Martin respect me therefore I never had problems with them. Outer towners on the other hand, I seem to have the most problems with but I had the law on my side so there were no problems and besides; I catered to the older more mature crowd. What the younger audience need to realize is that you can't go everywhere and do everything as you please. If you have no respect for yourself then you can not respect others. Northside Martin is not the GHETTO. It is our home and ALL people need to realize that. I'm sending prayers to my friend because you are not alone. No one should be scared of your own town or establishments. This is not the big city, this is Weakley County.

I know Justin Parker, I had almost 18 years to watch the train-wreck known as his life.

He died much of the way he lived. Violence in West Tennessee would decrease dramatically if young guys could stay away from drugs and gangs. Hate to see it happen

I wish I could believe he's in a better place.

I truly agree with what you said. I too support my city, our county.#3 you hit the nail on the head. Someone is going to be held accountable and even those whom choose to keep silent, for the simple fact of knowing and not saying.

Dont get me messed up...its terrible what happened. He has many friends who loved him and mother who is a situation I would not wish on nobody. Trust me when I say...the cops are thinking and looking into the same things. Those jail photos will lead them down a certain avenue.
