    Damn...

    HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. - A 37-year-old father irate over hearing his 15-year-old son had sexual contact with a 3-year-old girl made the teen strip at gunpoint, marched him to a vacant lot and shot him to death despite pleas from the boy and his mother, a relative said.
    Michigan authorities filed a first-degree murder charge Wednesday against Jamar Pinkney Sr. in the shooting death Monday of Jamar Pinkney Jr. in the Detroit enclave of Highland Park.
    Defense attorney Corbett O'Meara said prosecutors should consider evidence of the father's state of mind over the sex abuse report.
    "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," O'Meara said outside Highland Park District Court.
    Tensions were high in the courtroom Wednesday as the handcuffed suspect was led into the room for the arraignment, which lasted less than a minute.
    "No, No, No," one female relative cried before a police officer escorted her out.
    ‘Hard to deal with’
    Judge Brigette Officer entered a not guilty plea for Pinkney, who's also charged with assault, and ordered him jailed without bond until a preliminary examination Dec. 1.
    "This is something that's hard to deal with for all the parties concerned, including the police," police Chief Ted Caldwell said afterward. "Highland Park is a small city. These are people who have been members of the community for years."
    Caldwell said the sexual misconduct allegation that led to the confrontation wasn't part of the police investigation.
    The shooting happened Monday night in a vacant lot in the once-prosperous city of 16,000, where decay, abandonment, fires and demolition have eaten away at many of the sprawling homes. Highland Park recently exited years of state financial oversight.
    Visitors built an impromptu memorial at the shooting site. Two votive candles sat amid 10 stuffed animals, including two white teddy bears with red hearts embroidered with, "I love you."
    The boy's mother, Lazette Cherry, told the Detroit Free Press that her son told her he had improper sexual contact with the girl.



    "I called and told his father. This isn't something you sweep under the rug," she said.
    Cherry said the elder Pinkney arrived at the home with a gun, ordered his son to strip and marched him outside despite her protests.
    "He got on his knees and begged, ‘No, Daddy, no,’ and he pulled the trigger," Cherry said.
    Cherry did not immediately respond to a phone message Wednesday from The Associated Press seeking comment

    Old news... that was about 10 homicides ago. Here around the Detroit area, we hear gunshots every night, followed by sirens.

    Thats why today - there are approximately 215320 Michigan CPL holders.


    And counting.

    So you need a carry permit so you can shoot your son, or shoot the father who shot his son? What an obtuse response to a tragic situation for so many people - the little girl, her family, the family including the father who shot his son. And the best you can do is to respond with the need for a carry permit? It's unclear to me how that would have helped anyone but the fifteen year old in this situation to fend off his killer dad...

    that is a terrible incident.I think the father was not thinking very clearly at this time. When he realizes what he has done to his family I think he will regret his decision to pull the trigger.JMHO

    Guys Lighten up if Jr is having sex with a three year old girl he is a pedophile. There isn't a cue for that maybe Sr did the kid a favor. It sure will stop a long life in one institution after another.

    Now you may not like that but give it so thought. BTW how would the situation be tragic for the little girl and her family? Given a chance anyone of them(with the except the little girl)would have done the same thing.

    I agree with JerBearas obtuse as you may deem it to be.

    MSLSD doesn't have it entirely right.... as usual. It's been reported here for a while now, that the father called the mother by mistake and told her "he delt with it" thinking it was his girl friend. He beat the son in the house first and then led him to the front yard.

    rmbtrap.... I don't know where you live, but this crap is happening more and more here in MI. Everyones one edge. If you have a job, you worry about loosing it. If you don't, you worry about finding one.

    Sorry if it came across as unkind, but by now, it's a daily occurrence here and you get sort of numb to it.Yes it's a tragedy and he should be hung by his nuts, but again, we will have to house this scum bag for the rest of his life and pay millions for it.

    Man defends girlfriend, shoots would-be carjacker


    BY TAMMY STABLES BATTAGLIA

    FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER

    Reddit A 29-year-old man with a permit to carry a gun shot a would-be carjacker in the hip in northwest Detroit on Monday night after he tried to rob the man's girlfriend, police said this morning.

    The 24-year-old suspect approached the woman at about 10:30 a.m. outside a club at Grand River and Woodbine, according to police.

    When he demanded her car and her purse, her boyfriend shot him.
    The girlfriend, caught in crossfire, was shot in the back but is expected to survive, Detroit Police spokesman John Roach said this morning.
    The carjacking suspect is also expected to survive.


    That's why everyone here in MI is getting their CPL's.

    Sorry ... it's reality.

    The church's pastor found out about the crime on a note during the church service. He says the suspect demanded the woman's purse. She did what she was told. The pastor says the suspect then shot at the woman several times after she had some choice words for him. The woman was not hurt .

    Police continue to search for the indiviual.

    Fox 2's Simon Shaykhet spoke with the pastor about the incident that has his congregation concerned.
