Jamar Pinkney Sr., arrived at his 15-year old son’s home where he lived with his mother to exact corporal punishment on his son for doing the deplorable. According to ABC, his son had revealed to his mother that he had “inappropriate contact” with his 3-year old sister.
Lazette Cherry, the boy’s mother, called and alerted Pinkney Sr., to the startling news and wanted him to deal with the boy. Surely in that moment, the family imploded. The man was beside himself. A mailman “for years” he had no previous record. But, now has probably reasoned that he would give his life if he had to take his son’s.
What parent would ever think they would be faced with bringing literal action to the phrase, “I brought you in this world, I’ll take you out”?
The father pistol whipped the boy and led him outside to a vacant lot naked where he shot him in the head. The Detroit family is now facing Ms. Kim Worthy, the prosecutor that hunted, penned, and figuratively castrated the former mayor of Detroit, Kwame Kilpatrick. The man has been charged with first degree murder and, judging from Worthy’s record, will seek nothing less than a life sentence.
At this time, the reporting of what the boy may have done to the 3-year old was unclear. It is also left to imagination what the man may have heard from the boy’s mother that could’ve set him off in this way. It is our hope that he had undeniable reasoning for his mind to leave him.
