Ernest Hoskins Jr., a 21 year old Black male was brutally shot and killed during a staff meeting at the home of his boss, Christopher Reynolds, a 34 year old White male on November 9, 2012. According to a statement from an eyewitness, Hoskins made a remark to his boss, which angered him to the point where he got up and retrieved a gun. When Reynolds returned he pointed the weapon in Hoskins face and pulled the trigger. When the gun did not discharge, Reynolds cocked the gun back and discharged the weapon again; this time fatally wounding Hoskins. Hoskins leaves behind a 24-year old pregnant widow, a daughter, a loving mother and two little sisters. They have lost the only man in their immediate family. The Hoskins family is now dealing with the fact that his killer charges have been downgraded from murder to manslaughter by the special prosecutors, suggesting that Reynolds actions were accidental. This means Reynolds could be out of jail in as little time as three years. Join us in demanding justice for the family of Ernest Hoskins Jr.

      Because no matter what the color no one should kill unless justifiable in defending ones family or property. Killing is wrong, especially out of murder. People have been getting away murdering African Americans for far too long. Justice needs to be served here not favoritism. A slap on the wrist is not justice, not one iota. The guilty should be punished within the law. What if the tables were turned. He might be getting by but God will not let him Reynolds get away with it. Do the right thing here. And God will look favorably on your hearts and you will have to answer to HIM, God one day.

      This is a man that was taken from his family unjustly. His case deserves to be heard true and fairly.

      Justice has not been served. This was open murder.
