Grant Scott Parkison should have not been convicted period. Those people who were there at the time of the shooting know that. Bunch of gang people and drug abusers they are.
Congratulations Scott.

Now "Applauding the Jury" if that were your son who died in that manner would you still fell the same way? Think, Think damn it!!! When you loose a loved one, your life has very little meaning. We only want the truth, but to die "excution style" that alone deserve more then a slap on the wrist. Wheather a gang member or drug abuser,no one deserve to die that way period.

A dad has every right to feel the way you do. My heart goes out to all families involved. I hope that the message is clear... "when you live a crazy life, it ends in a crazy way. Sorry about the loss of your loved one

By definition in the Law Dictionary Involuntary
Manslaughter is exactly the conclusion that should
have been reached given the facts that were
presented. Don't understand the weapons enhancement charge carrying a 10 yr sentence though. 13 years is a long time for an accidental
act. Will be interesting to watch the sentencing.

Like it or not, Beyond reasonable doubt is what the DA needed to prove. In my opinion, not knowing the facts untill the trial, he came know where near that. I don't know how close you were to the case or possibly to family members of James Chambers but the facts presented at the trial didn't prove it was execution style. Further more, the information provided to the jury members was not sufficient to support a tougher sentence.

While the family of James has my sympathy for there loss, so does the family and son of Parkison.

I believe that the judge should say time served and let the man out.

Judge should say time served & let the man out. You really aren't serious, are you? Maybe the judge should pick him up in a limo, take him out for a big steak dinner, maybe treat him to a movie, then take him home & tuck him in....ridiculous, you've got rocks for brains.

james chambers was a criminal piece of shit, he had been to prison for burglary, he was living down at whiskey flats with the rest of the fucking tweaker scum, and they found meth in his system when they did the autopsy. he got what he deserved, thats what happens when you go around breaking into people's homes and steal from them. he was worthless trash, just a career criminal and a meth user. someone should have shot him years ago and rid the world of this drain on soceity. FUCK YOU JAMES, and to his parents... james is in BURNING IN HELL hes not in heaven.
