This is truely to bad. The Parker family is a very nice and dedicated family. One bad decision can bring havoc to an entire family. Please be respectful and don't respond, unless nice comments, to this post.

I agree, (Sad) -- they are just about the kindest people around. This is so unfortunate for them and hopefully, they will be uplifted by support from family, friends and the community. How sad.

I do not get it. You beg for mercy for this family totally understandable but the facts are that a lot of people could have been seriously hurt. Obviously people feel bad for the parents of this child but he made a bad decision. Thankfully someone in this situation did the right thing. Let’s not forget that arson is a crime and inexcusable.

I don't get it -- what is wrong with feeling badly for parents who have exhibited incredibly good parenting over the years and kindness. That doesn't mean that we don't share in the disappointment and frustration that this young man made such a horrible decision, or empathy that someone could be hurt. I am not excusing the crime; I am simply agreeing with SAD that to start raking people over the coals (which this forum usually does) would be unfortunate.

I never said the family was bad or didn't feel for them. I just read the article and commented. Calm down lol.

I've heard he's been doing shady business down there for a while and it was only a matter of time before he got caught. It's too bad regardless of who it is. People don't understand that it is going to take him many many years to live this down, if ever.almost always, One mistake costs you a life of happiness. That's our society.

Ben Parker is one shady individual. He's screwed over numerous people between car deals and real estate deals. He finally got what was coming to him.

It's a shame that so many of you can be so heartless. I urge you to think about how it would feel if someone you loved were in a similar situation. Ben made a poor choice, and if you knew anything about the case, you'd know he's paying with a far greater price than he deserves. He has no prior record, not so much as a speeding ticket, and the time he's facing does not reflect this, nor the crime. Let's remember- this is "attempted arson". Nothing was ever actually lit on fire, and there was no one in the house at the time. Do your research before you go spouting off about a situation you know nothing about.

.....If he had set this house on fire it could’ve easily caught the occupied houses all around it on fire. They are very close to each other. Suppose your grandmother was living next door and died from asphyxiation or burned to death in the middle of the night? Suppose a fireman died trying to determine if the burning house was occupied?“Poor Ben”‘Poor choice?”“ never actually lit the match?” What??
