Kyle Parker, also known as "K Top," is one of the names which keeps coming up in the ongoing violent street war and war-of-words-set-to-music between 19 Dipset Gang and their enemies the YnT and Taliban gang.
For example, in the recent and oh-so-controversial Mental Mid music video "BackFlip," at about 1:34 an individual is visible wearing a hat bearing the street names "K Top," "D Nice" and "Bossman." These names represent dead gang members. So as JNS blog examines the controversy, I do see the name "K Top" emerging in the conversation. Well, recently an anonymous commenter THRUST a court document in front of me that references Kevin Parker...
That document is linked above and describes the shooting which claimed the life of Kevin "K Top" Parker. The driver of the vehicle used in the shooting was Christopher Dineaa Bahtuoh, currently doing time in prison but interestingly enough the guy has his own Facebook page.
I assume somebody else maintains it for him? Either that or those baggy jail pants are hiding a cell phone with internet capability.
The events leading to the death of Parker and the incarceration of Bahtuoh are described in the court document, though in summary Lamont McGee was the triggerman and Bahtuoh did the driving. Parker managed to tell his sister that Bahtuoh was responsible for the shooting before he died.
It was in late December of last year the Honorable Minnesota State Supreme Court ruled on this case and determined Bahtuoh didn't have enough of anything to overturn his conviction.
So with that happening back in December, why is an anonymous commenter suddenly putting the court document in front of JNS blog and pointing out McGee killed Parker? The possibilities are many, but three stick out in my mind:
1.) It's a commenter affiliated with the police, who wants to get people on the internet talking about this incident to gather evidence.
2.) It's a commenter affiliated with the gangs, who wants to get somebody stirred up and/or post the court case as justification for some future action, which (whatever it is) won't be good.
3.) Somebody with hardly any connection to the case at all, except their own arcane interest, just loves to forge connections between pieces of information on the internet. That person could be logged in from McMurdo research station in Antarctica for all I know.
What's the answer? Maybe the commenter himself or herself could explain to me why I (or readers) should get worked up over a guy who is already in prison. Isn't that murder done? Committed?
Wel, talking about it won't "uncommit" the murder. And isn't the other guy, Lamont Chares McGee, already in prison?
There has already been plenty of blood spilled between the enemies and allies of Kevin Parker. So you tell me, anonymous reader. You justify it to me.
Why are you pointing at the murder of Kevin Parker and trying to talk about it this late in the game?
