    Sounds like there were lots of problems in that family -- I could see that father being upset, but making the boy strip down before shooting him???

    Another tragedy...unreal.
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    A woman, who did not want her identity revealed told Local 4 what she saw.

    "He brought him out the house, he walked him over there and said, 'Get on the ground,' and he's like, 'No, Daddy, no, Daddy,' and next thing you know, he grabbed his head and he shot him," said the witness.

    The witness said the father calmly got into his vehicle and drove away.

    "He was calm and drove off like a regular person, like he didn't do anything, and I am like, 'wow,'" said the witness.
    Heartbreaking!

    O M G!!

    http://www.detnews.com/article/20091...half-sister--3

    Relatives said Jamar Jr. recently told his mother that he'd had sexual contact with his half-sister, 3, several months ago.

    Jamar's aunt, Yolanda Cherry, said the boy's mother 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."

    Responses should be interesting considering that "Death" is the #1 Websleuth poll answer when asked what penalty should pedophiles receive.

    One of the reasons I wanted to start this thread. It appears, although I'm not sure it's been confirmed, that there was no penetration, the kid knew what he did was wrong, and asked for help from his mom. Does that change things? I don't know. While I believe, from the sparse information out there, that the 15 year old acted inappropriately, I do not believe it gave his own father a right to execute him.

    I am just speechless. Regardless of what the boy did or did not do, to shoot your own son in the head as he begs you not to and then just drive away...it's unbelievable. That man is a monster.

    And bless mom's heart - according to her story she was letting dad know so they could get the 15yo some help....how sad that she was trying to do the right thing then this happened.

    But if that drop was not in the ocean,

    And obviously, the child had a conscience, if he told his mother about it.

    I wonder if the bio-dad was also a molester--maybe he had molested the boy at some time and didn't want anyone to find out, as they might if the kid went to therapy?

    This boy asked for help. He knew what he had done was inappropriate.
    Even then, he did not deserve to be beaten, stripped, and murdered without any investigation of his actions. This is so sickening. I hope this "father" is charged with first degree murder -- his actions are beyond cruel and self-righteous. .

    That boy asked for help. He knew what he did was wrong and his Mom was trying to get him help. I cannot imagine the guilt she must feel for confiding in his father. Bless that family.

    This story seems straight out of the Old Testament, one of wrath delivered down by an angry God calling upon Abraham to sacrifice a son.

    It cuts across several lines found in WS threads: molestation; murder; pedophilia and the punishment for that kind of crime, plus the shock and horror of filicide.
