Another fine example of multiculturalism in action. We've imported a whole panoply of new atrocities previously unknown in American culture. Oops, I forgot, we're not allowed to have a culture of our own anymore.

Oh get over yourself. Domestic violence is unfortunately nothing new and it occurs everywhere and people of all races do it. If you want to talk about real atrocities why don't you look at Nicholas T. Sheley, who was just arrested yesterday for killing 8 people, including a 93 year old man and a toddler? Bet you won't though, since he's white and that would threaten your perception that all whites are moral law-abiding citizens.

Let me get this straight: he divorced her and then did not want her to date anyone? What a moron. This one should definitely get the needle.

No, I want him to suffer just as my uncle did; I want him to feel pain - I want him to get the chair. That man does not deserve an easy death.

I agree. I extend my deepest sympathies to you and your family.

Just to clarify, my remarks above were not meant to trivialize your family's loss or say that their deaths weren't as bad as the ones caused by the ex-con. It was to point out that people of all races do horrid things to each other. Shim's despicable deeds do not reflect the mentality or mindset of the Asian/Pacific Islander community. He is just one sick cumrag that deserves to roast in hell forever. Again, I'm sorry for you and your family's loss.

You are correct - this is not a race thing and I don't hold a "race" accountable for Shim's actions. I hold him accountable and I pray the courts in Cali will hold him accountable too!
Thank you for your kind words - my uncle was a loving, giving person who would have given the shirt off his back if you needed it. I miss and love you Uncle Joe; rest in peace.

Many have no idea how this is effecting our community. Si Young Yoon was great with our kids and we hope that Jae Shim and Tae Kwon had not done anything to our friend. He has taught our kids in our community as well as mine to value life. He is dearly missed.

This tragedy affects even those of us across the Pacific. Master Si was one of the instructors who taught my youngest son taekwondo until he received his 1st POOM black belt three years ago. We traveled to tournaments with Jamie and Justin. Four lives were brutally taken, two of those lives were just beginning. My heart goes out to all back in Lancaster.

I would like to extend my love to anyone who had the pleasure of knowing Si to the level I did. This technically was and is considered a crime of passion. Not a crime that race should even be mentioned in. People are people. For an'y one who knew Si he was a VERY respectable person and opened his door to myself and ALL of my family. To his sisters I am in WY and am trying to get to you.

This is ENOUGH, This family is grieving the loss of their family. I agree the sick people who done this should be put in the chair and killed. How could someone do this to a family. Especially when there are children involved.....

There are many sick people out there.

Wow we certainly lost focus on this blog. It's about lives that were taken by the hands of a jealous man. Domestic violence is out of control and we all need to help those being abused instead of turning our heads. It's obvious that a restraining order is just a piece of paper. I will spend sometime learning about shelters and options for these abused women. Look into fund raisers we can do in our communities to help. We all need to pull together in times like this.
I did not know the Parks. It is extremely sad that their lives were taken by a man who once loved them. My Uncle was just an innocent victim. He was so funny, loving and an all around great guy. My heart really goes to my Aunt who lost four loved ones in one day. May they all rest in peace. The men should get the death penalty but it should be by the same way they killed their victims!
