Today Corey Davis, self-identified "big bro" of accused killer Devon Parker (who allegedly murdered a 69-year-old grandfather in his homestead in a ruse to seek help from a Good Samaritan) got on a crime watch Facebook forum and told concerned citizens to "shut the fuck up and mind yall motherfuckin business." (sic) Rather than adding analysis and commenter, I am simply sharing the entire conversation here verbatim...
Heather EckmanThis is disgusting and ridiculous.... this is a perfect example of why Minnesota should have the death penalty...
Corey DavisMan shut the fuck up bitch yall probaly dont even live in OUR neighborhood and like I said nobody kno wtf happened in that house but my brother and that old fuckin man so till the truth comes out yall need to shut the FUCK up my brother is not a bad person like this so I don't think he did it
North Minneapolis Crime Watch & InformationYour brother is NOT a bad person? Nah, he just shot some old guy in cold blood. Or is there justification for going into someone's house and murdering them? What a pathetic waste of human life. -D
Jean MarieThe one thing I will agree with is that we need the justice system to work its course (which apparently hasn't work in the public's favor thus far when it comes to Devon Derrick Parker), but for his brother to come on here with his swearing rant with l...See More

Carrie HoppeAm hoping that this thread will be shared with the prosecuter who ends up with this case. It will be nice to see the compassion for the dead man so openly shared by the shooters brother....
Robert Charles La CroixThis is the reason it will never change until these cowards are put where they belong, and all thse fuckin LIBERAL judges get their head out of there ass and inforce the fuckin laws, This little dink needs about 40 years to think about what he did, and...See More
Deb Osburn HughesOk then, Corey is not the guilty party and this person is his brother. I'm sure that in his heart if hearts he does feel bad about the victim but he is trying to be support for his brother. It is hard for family to believe that their loved in could do ...See More
Deb Osburn HughesAlso we pack people into one area with now money and a poor education system and leave them to kill each other off, then we move into the area and can't understand why there is crime here, we are mad because now we have to live in their world, society has created this problem so work on fixing societal problems instead of attacking the people who are the victims of society!
Jean MarieDeb, Deb, Deb. PEOPLE make up a society and have to start taking responsibility for their own actions. I'm not sure who you're speaking to when you say, "No one cared when they lived in their safe suburban homes but now you want to live here..." as m...See More
Deb Osburn HughesYes I understand your anger but do you realize that the north side has been left to rot for a very long time, I live here and I don't want to live in fear either, but I do realize that the prison system dumps everyone out here, not just general crimina...See More
Deb Osburn HughesI see homemade signs in the corner stores that desperate families looking for there young lives ones, do you see that on the news. My point is that people do what they know and because this community is in a vicious cycle that takes people who care to help break the cycles.
Deb Osburn HughesA lot of these people are victims of their environment. A lot of these young kids out her could be doctors, lawyers, nurses. They could one day save you or your family member. But only if they had opportunity. But only if someone cared. But only if they had been born to you.
Deb Osburn HughesSorry if I am misspelling, I just feel strongly about this. I have young adults spend time at my house all the time with my other kids. I know their not saints but for a little while I'm their mom and their my kids. Maybe just maybe my love and attention will one day mean something to them. Something they may not get at home or ever felt before. Live and guidance.
Deb Osburn HughesOf course they should face consequences!!! But may be as a society we could do something in our own little way to make a difference and maybe prevent another wonderful gentlemen from being shot.
Nicole Boyles OlsonDeb, I agree that most people are a product of their environments. I was born and raised on the northside and can tell you there are probably more kids that I grew up with dead or in prison than not. The point is that no one person can wave a magic wan...See More
Deb Osburn HughesI agree Nicole, I had to scratch and fight to become who I am, I grew up in a very difficult neighborhood. I started down the wrong path but I had something that made me fight for better and that was the love of my mom and a very strong soul. Thank god that I am where I am.
Carey Joe Howellbefore this and maybe he wouldn't be in this mess. Making a mistake is not assaulting and hurting people. That's not a mistake, that's not an accident. That's intentional. And how many "mistakes" has this person made? At what point do you get a freaking clue?
Carey Joe HowellAn innocent person is dead, that is our business. That is everyone's business. If you don't want people getting into your business then don't act like idiots so we have to be concerned about whatever the hell you're up to.
Heather KittenheartThis is not the first time that I've seen the family of those arrested on here starting arguments. The prosecution can and will use this against your family member that stands accused. You are not doing them any favors. Don't speak to the media, and don't speak about it on social media.
