    Family: Father shot teen son over contact with 3-year-old girl
    Santiago Esparza / The Detroit News


    Highland Park -- A 37-year-old man was arraigned today in 30th District Court after being accused of shooting his teenage son execution-style while the boy pleaded for his life.
    Jamar Pinkney Sr. faces one count of first-degree murder, three counts of felonious assault and one count of felony firearm.
    Judge Bridgette Officer today in court ordered Pinkney Sr. to be held without bond as he awaits a preliminary exam on Dec. 1.
    The courtroom was packed with emotional family members, including one who broke down and was escorted out of the room.
    Police allege Pinkney marched his naked son, Jamar Jr., 15, out of a home at gunpoint near Rosa Parks and North Tuesday, and forced him into an adjacent grassy field. Investigators say the father made his son kneel before shooting him in the back of the head. Relatives said Jamar Jr. was pleading for his life as he was shot.
    Highland Park police officials said the shooting occurred after an argument between the suspect and his son.
    Relatives said Jamar Jr. recently admitted that he'd had inappropriate physical contact with a 3-year-old several months ago.
    Jamar's aunt, Yolanda Cherry, said a relative took the girl to a doctor to be examined on Sunday, and that there were no indications of sexual abuse.
    "There is nothing normal about killing your child," Cherry said. "I don't know why he shot him. He was a good boy. This is so sad."
    One of Pinkney's attorneys, Corbett Edge O'Meara, said his client's state of mind will have to be considered as the case proceeds.
    "That is certainly something a prosecutor and judge and jury will have to take into account," he said. "It obviously is a tragedy for the whole family. The entire situation is a tragedy for all involved."
    If convicted, Jamar Pinkney Sr. will spend the rest of his life in prison.

    This may have something to do with it:

    1. He had inappropriate sexual contact with the 3 y/o
    2. The statement and beleive: He was a good boy!

    I'm not sure I'd shoot my son. I am pretty sure I'd beat him to death. Indications or not, inappropriate contact covers more than penetration.

    Makes me sad to see how broken many parts of our society have become in my lifetime, while I never considered myself as overly religious I feel there is a connection between the lost of religious teachings and our broken society.

    After thinking about this the only thing that could make me feel any better about it would be, if the dad had already caught the boy doing it multiable times before.

    What if it turns out the dad had molested his son?

    If the son did it then I must say I won't lament his demise. If the son did it then I also feel sorry for the father who exterminated the vermin. Sad story no matter which angle you look at it.

    Thankfully my son is only 4 right now, but if he was to grow up and do something like this, there is not enough love in the world for someone who takes away innocence like that.

    Growing up, we had a kid that lived in our apartment complex who molested his younger brother. Five of us beat the living crap out of him for close to 15 mins. His uncle, who happened to be a detective, stopped us from killing him, but he never said a word about it to us after that.

    There are just some things that you dont do, and this is one of them. I wouldve gladly of provided the gun and ammo to have done the job...
