Another member of our community has died violently, stabbed to death repeatedly in his home by three assailants who then stole his car, an attack being widely rumoured as having been initiated on A4A. It’s beyond time to take stronger community action to prevent and address such violence. Calls are also being raised about how we partner more effectively with victims’ families and advocacy with law enforcement on violence against us. Look out for some action steps and community activities from CAISO and others soon.
This weekend, a well-known and -liked member of our community was murdered brutally in what many in the community feel certain was a pickup crime. 25-year-old Derek Nirel Parks, an army private from D’Abadie, was stabbed to death and his vehicle stolen early Saturday morning.
