He raped a woman in front of her 5 year old daughter. It doesn't matter if he was black, whith, red or green good ridance. If this happened more often today there would be less crime.

Where either of you there at the time of the crime?
Innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. That is the law of this land. Who among us would like to be tried by a mob and sentenced by that same mob with no judge, jury, or chance to prove your innocence? Think about it...that wasn't justice...it was a lynching!

What a great guy he is. Let's give him a party. If he didn't do that I am sure he has a litany of things we can send him to hell for.

These comments, for the most part, are simply unbelievable for the 21st century. Where's innocent until proven guilty -- regardless of race, creed etc? Of course, I've seen first hand how "truth" can be used in the court system so it's doubtful whether there would have even been any attempt at a fair trial. God will judge not only Mack Charles Parker for what he may or may not have done but also the ones who murdered Mr. Parker.

I think this is the kind of justice we need today!! maybe if we killed folks for henious crimes on TV in living color with the same degree of suffering they inflicted on their victems there would be a greater deterrant to crimes. I am damned tired of my tax dollars paying to feed and clothe bastards like Charles Mansion.

This man was accused, not tried and found guilty. Are you condoning a mob breaking into the jail and removing people who have not had a trial and taking them out and killing them? The people who did that committed a crime ---- murder. I don't know if Parker was guilty or innocent and there is no trial transcript to review. However, I would bet the farm everybody knew who took him from jail because it would have been common knowledge. And not that it should matter but I'm not black--- I'm a red headed, white, middle-aged Southern woman who believes everybody is entitled to protection under the law and entitled to their rights under the constitution. One of those rights being a fair trial of your peers. And I do believe in severe punishment for henious crimes regardless of color.

No one knows whether this man is guilty or innocent. Eyewitness testimony is often erroneous. No one knows if or what kind of relationship this woman had with this black man. And, Rosewood, Florida, where a white woman accused a black man of raping and beating her when the crime had been committed by her white lover and the woman didn't want her white husband to find out what a floozie she was, is only one of many instances in this countries history where the outright lies told by white women have led to the slaughter of black men, women and/or children.

So many times Americans believe that it is their right to exact revenge for a crime committed by someone. In the Bible in the book of Matthew, chapter 5, verse 38, it says that "Ye have heard it has been said, An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth", which is the Bible verse most used by those who believe that it is their right to play God. But, the Christian Bible, upon which the "right" says gives them the right to exact revenge also says,'Don't seek revenge yourselves, beloved, but give place to God's wrath. For it is written, "Vengeance belongs to me; I will repay, says the Lord".' Romans 22:19

I grew up in "The Sip" in the fifties and know that Black women were constantly being raped by White men. The women did not report it because THEY would be the ones to end up in prison---or worse.

LOS ANGELES - Four members of a Hispanic gang were convicted Tuesday of conspiring to use violence to push blacks out of their neighborhood, after federal prosecutors targeted the gang with laws normally used to prosecute white supremacist groups.

ADVERTISEMENT

All four were found to have caused the death of a black man shot while parking his car in 1999 and a man shot while standing at a bus stop in 2000 in the largely Hispanic city of Highland Park, east of Los Angeles.

Convicted were Gilbert "Lucky" Saldana, 27; Alejandro "Bird" Martinez, 28; Porfirio "Dreamer" Avila, 31; and Fernando "Sneaky" Cazares, 26. Saldana and Avila are already serving life sentences in state prison.

For a guilty verdict, jurors had to find that the attacks were part of a conspiracy to violate the victims' right to live where they pleased and to use state-administered facilities, including public streets.

Justice Department attorney Bobbi Bernstein had asked the jury to send a message that America does not tolerate racial violence.

Defense attorneys claimed police concocted the conspiracy charges by tying together random attacks committed largely by unknown perpetrators.

The four face life in prison without parole. Sentencing is to begin Oct. 23.

I get a kick when I see how bad the white man is for killing,and raping blacks.The evil white man can't even come close to the record of black men killing and raping other blacks.Black on black crime has made the KKK obsolete,they are laughing under there hoods.Blacks have killed and raped more blacks than the KKK or any other white.Keep bitchen and keep killing.

I, like down south gal am outraged to see the kind of ignorance and disregard for justice that has been posted on this forum. Yes, crimes like this and worse have been committed by black and white men alike. I'm willing to bet my last dime that more black offenders were prosecuted than those white offenders but that fact does NOT mean that we should brush the event aside assuming that the young woman is lying. Facts need to be considered, not just what someone said. American law says Innocent until proven guilty in ANY case. Blacks have not yet reached the point of equality, lets make no mistake about that, because this is still the same America that has jailed black men and women for the same crimes that whites have gotten a slap on the wrist for! But why highlight the fact that the man is black and the victim is white. Who really cares! State the facts and facts only! Everyone should be entitled to impartial judgement and the description of this crime makes that impossible. If he is proven guilty I pray that it is only because all evidence points to that (not the white man) and surely he'll get what he deserves. By the way...How do black men feel about white women?
