The mother is an freaking ass. The father of the 3 year old is a bigger ass.

Who does this?

The mother LET this happen to her son? WTF is wrong with her? There was no better way to deal with the situation? He wasn't 30 years old, he was 15 and PERHAPS the mamma should have looked at how she screwed her son up enough to the point that he "did" anything.

To let something like this happen to one of your children ....where WAS mamma when 15 year old was dry humping the 3 year old? Seriously? Where was mamma when 3 year old baby daddy stripped the 15 year old down and executed him gang-land/mafia style?

We're not talking about people who are playing with a full deck, especially none of the adult characters in this situation.

How do you watch your flesh and blood, no matter the age, get "pistol whipped" and stripped naked and then taken out into a field and shot in the head? What kind of mother ARE you?

There are plenty of ways to deal with this. Shooting the kid in the back of the head is not one of them.

Again, where was mamma? Where was gun owning-braided-hair-living in the slums of MI daddy of the girl?

it is such an ugly story all around. i wondered the same thing about the mother. she didn't protect EITHER of her children and she isn't going to jail? god forbid she ever has another child.

at least the father has been sentenced for his part in this ugly situation. the father certainly had an element of brutality to him to march the boy and make him strip down naked (what is that about?) before he executed him.

once again, the apples don't fall far from the trees.

I find disproportionate both the killing if his foster son and the sentence.

Just so you are clear: The 15 year olds BIOLOGICAL father shot him, NOT his stepfather.

Sometimes hard choices have to be made. Sometimes people have to kill a family member to save others.

This man probably feels like he's saved a lot of women/children a lot of grief down the road.
Interesting.

This was not an ethical dilemma. The father's sole intent was to inject as much pain, humiliation and fear into the boy as possible before executing him. This makes him a cold-blooded killer motivated by a hateful passion, not a hero.

why didn't the mother go to the police to have this boy prosecuted? why would she set her son up for that by telling an obviously unhinged father what happened? that woman has zero common sense and should have never had any children, let alone at least two.

again, this is what happened:
Police said that after the boy's mother called her ex-husband to tell him what had happened, he came to her home in Highland Park and began beating the boy. Pinkney then stripped him naked, marched him outside and shot him in the head.

"He got on his knees and begged, 'No, Daddy! No!' and he pulled the trigger," his mother, Lazette Cherry, told the Detroit Free Press.

those actions are hardly heroic.....

You're right and in the process he also robbed his daughter of the chance to grow up knowing her father without a set of bars between them.

The father has already been sentenced to first degree murder and doctors could find no signs of sexual abuse in the little girl. http://www.makli.com/jamar-pinkney-sr-0013751/

@Wayland Woman, the 3-year-old daughter is NOT the child of Jamar Sr.
The only child between Jamar Sr. and Lazette Cherry, was their 15 year old son, Jamar Jr.

The 3 year old daughter that Lazette Cherry has is by her second husband.
This little girl is in no way, shape, or form, related to Jamar Sr.

I don't believe that Lazette Cherry knew her ex-husband (Lamar Sr.) would react the way he did. I honestly think she informed him because he is the Father of Jamar Jr and they needed to discuss his behavior with regard to his (Jamar Jr's) 3 year old half-sister.

However, when he began to beat the boy, and pistol-whip him, IMO - she should have been on the phone to 911 and then try to stop him herself. I'm not condoning what the 15 yr old did, it's wrong. But, as a parent your first job is to protect your child even if that means you have to cause harm to the other parent to do so.

Jamar Sr. was out of control. I'm not sure what the history is with the 15 yr old, or whether or not he'd had other instances where he had behaved inappropriately with minors or not.

But clearly, something was completely out of control and not normal in that household and had probably been for quite a while. By the act of the child coming to his mother and admitting what he'd done, I think it was a cry for help. I think he knew he was sick (mentally) and that he wanted help with it.

That's the first step in rehabilitation, the perp needs to realize there's a problem. Most don't, but this kid did. That tells me he probably could have been rehabilitated.

I can only pray for the mental well-being of the 3 year old and hope her Mother gets her into some type of counseling to deal with the molestation before it becomes a big emotional and mental scar for her.
