Mother Arrested For Hiding Son Wanted For Murder

(Memphis) A South Memphis mother and her son were hauled off to jail together Tuesday.

The son was arrested for first-degree murder and police arrested his mom for helping him hide.

Jerome Jamison was wanted for shooting a man to death in Whitehaven this past month.

Witnesses who live in the Tulane apartment complex where it happened say the person who shot and killed Derek Parker had a star tattoo  on his neck.

It was that star tattoo that made Jamison the prime suspect in the December 20th murder.

After police say a witness identified him as the killer, officers went looking for him, but it would take an argument with Jamison’s mother to get him into custody.

Neighbors say police circled the South Memphis neighborhood for days, until New Year’s Eve, when they swooped in and arrested Jamison at a Riverside house.

Jamison’s mother is accused of arguing with the cops, saying he wasn’t there and that she hadn’t seen him in months.

They say after 20 minutes, Samantha Jamison finally admitted her son was hiding in the bathroom.

She said her son was unarmed and told police not to hurt him.

Their neighbors understand a mom protecting her son, but not in this circumstance.

“It’s just awful because its putting everybody else is in jeopardy around here,” said a neighbor, who didn’t want to be identified.

Some believe the mother might have been hiding him for days.

“There is a white car back there and it seems to be always gone when the police come and when they leave they always come right back.”

The mom has already bonded out of jail.

Her son won’t be getting out anytime soon because he is being held in jail without bond. He’s due in court Thursday.

      Please don’t defend this foolishness. I get some of what you’re TRYING to say, but he had a gun and decided to take a life. So now, he has to deal with the consequences. Since you know him so well, why didn’t you try and help him, talk to him about his terrible environment and situations? I’m sure the victim was no Saint, channel 3 is probably doing a background check on him now, but he did not deserve to be shot like a dog.

        Hey Quit! Your english skills say so much about you. Scumbags like yourself need a bullet and someone in your “community” will help you out in that department, maybe your friend!

      Ummm, by the time you are 5 years old you know right from wrong. Or at least you should. And it makes me SICK when people blame someone’s actions on their “environment” or “the wrong crowd”. Millions of people every day are worse off then he’ll ever be & have not killed anyone. The number one cause of death for ybm’s are other ybm’s. So why don’t you “SHUT TF UP”!!!?

    Seems that everyone is saying bad things about Memphis Schools, The schools are not to blame, The blame should be on the people who have run the schools for the past 40 years or so. You can’t learn from teachers that cannot speak English. It appears a lot of the people who graduated from said schools had a third grade education.

    I would hate to be in that situation but I think if my son KILLED SOMEONE I would make him turn himself in. Or find another place to hide.
