Another Jeezus Take the Wheel Moment: Dad Strips and Shoots Son Execution-Style After Son Confesses to Mom That He Acted Inappropriately With His Three-Year-Old Sister
Lazette Cherry, Jamar Jr.’s mother, said she wanted to get her 15-year-old son help when he came to her and said he had acted inappropriately with his 3-year-old half-sister.
There wasn’t a rape, Cherry said her son told her. But he confessed to his mother that he knew lying on top of the baby was wrong, she said.
So she called her son’s father and told him what she believed happened in his home on Newport on Detroit’s east side.
“I called and told his father this isn’t something you sweep under the rug,” the devastated mother said today.
His father showed up at the house Monday afternoon with a gun, she said.
“He started beating him right here,” Cherry said from her living room. “I said, ‘No, please stop!’ ”
But the father marched Jamar Jr., a sophomore at Martin Luther King High School, outside.
“He got on his knees and begged, ‘No, Daddy! No!’ and he pulled the trigger,” she said. “There wasn’t nothing that my son wouldn’t do for his father. He loved his father so much.”
The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office charged Pinkney Sr. with first-degree murder, punishable by up to life in prison. He’s also been charged with three counts of felonious assault for pointing the gun at Cherry and two other people at her home before the shooting.

There are hardly any words to say. The boy did not deserve this. At least, he admitted to what he did. A talking to, yes. That’s what he needed. But not this. He needed to be talked to about what was right and wrong about sex. That you don’t use your younger sister to experiment with. Instead, the father tore the boy’s clothes off, drove him out of the house onto the front lawn before witnesses, and shot him in the head.
The mother cannot blamed if this is what she actually told the father. Now she is a bereaved mother. Her son is gone. She has to take up a collection to bury him. All she wanted was the father to be responsible for his son’s conduct, that this kind of behavior was not okay and could have ramifications for his sister’s mental as well as physical health.
Our children need help, but not this kind of help.
