Father shoots son over sexual abuse of toddler

November 20th, 2009 by

www.examiner.com – A father in Michigan is accused of forcing his son to strip at gunpoint, marching him to a vacant lot, and shooting him to death after learning the 15-year-old had inappropriate sexual contact with a 3-year-old girl.
The boy’s mother, Lazette Cherry, said her son had told her about the sexual contact. “I called and told his father. This isn’t something you sweep under the rug,” she said. Then, she said, Jamar Pinkney Sr arrived at their home with a gun, ordered his son to strip, and marched him outside despite her protests. She said her son also protested, “He got on his knees and begged ‘No, Daddy, no,’ and he pulled the trigger.”
Corbett O’Meara, the defense attorney for Pinkney, has said that prosecutors should keep in mind the father’s state of mind over the sex abuse allegation. “If something were to happen that would cause a reasonable person to lose control of himself, that is something the prosecution would have to take into account.”
The shooting took place in a vacant lot of Highland Park, a once-prosperous city of 16,000 which has now been left to decay, abandonment, and demolition. “This is something that’s hard to deal with for all the parties concerned, including the police,” Chief Ted Caldwell said. “Highland Park is a small city. These are people who have been members of the community for years.”
Pinkney has entered a not guilty plea, and is being held without bond until a preliminary hearing on December 1.

    Now THAT is how child molesters should be treated!!!!!! I salute this man for his swift and precise punnishment.The state and federal gov. should take note and learn something from this. If a MAN can carry out swift punnishment on his own son then why cant the gov. do the same to complete and total strangers?!?!let me just remind you that we are talking about CHILD MOLESTERS!so all of you anti death penalty pussies have it straight.

    Just like “Old Yeller” when your dawg gets sick take it out back and shoot it.

    Good! That is exactly how all child molesters should be dealt with! :@ Regardless of the offenders age or relationship to the victim, ALL CHILD MOLESTERS SHOULD BE DEALT WITH THIS WAY!!

    The boy was 15 years old for God sake people! I think he should have been put in jail, not shot dead begging for his life! How ruthless can you people be?!?!?!

    Matthew you would not say that if you or your kids were a victim. You can’t cure sickness like that, why do you think the father did it? Would you want your child molesting kid to live. 3 years old man! 15 is close enough to an adult. Just because he is young doesn’t mean he can’t be fed up. So he shot his sick son before he did it again or worse. I know it’s not easy to kill your own son but i wouldn’t want the shame of knowing my son will be a sex offender for life.

    The father is the savge monster who should have speedy trial and burn alive where he shade the blood of innocnet boy. the american legal system is rubish and allowed those barbaic to walk around with a gun and kill innoncet victims.
    I am sure the boy did not do anything , but the father killed him to appease his girl friend, which is the common behavior of African american men.
    15 year old boy is very young even to face justice; he should teach him as a father, but since niggros left their mind in african they do not have any common sense to use logic and reason, instead they are driven by their emotion.
    If I had the power, I would burn the father with the hot oil and tourch him and cut his penis and put his mouth until he chokes and die.

    I think that punishment for a 15 year old is a bit too harsh. The reason why is if your a habitual offender then Yes! but imagine if the son was joking the father must feel like crap. Either way whether the son’s dead or alive the victim still has to somehow deal with it. So why take a life? & YES I AM A VICTIM..from 4 Years old !

    @koko KKK, much?

    @ Gmoney “a bit too harsh”? Taking someone out in a parking lot ,naked, and shooting them is “a bit too harsh”. Just “a bit”?

    The father was well in the wrong, and he should be punished! Child molestation is wrong, but this is NOT how it should be dealt with. We shouldn’t terrorize others like this. The 15 year old should have faced justice, instead of that.
