Extradite Killer Back to US for Murder Victim! Take A Stand, Justice For Ant!

This is important because a loved one was snatched way to soon to senseless gun violence!  It hurts my heart as a friend to Anthony's aunt, Shareem Taylor, and seeing the pain she goes through daily.  But it also hurts, being a friend to his father, Anthony Sr a veteran of this country who served in Desert Storm and continues to serve this country as an active law enforcement professional, to deal with the fact that her nephew, his son, a father, a brother, grandson, great friend and loving person, Anthony Lamont Holmes, Jr was murdered for no good reason.  The prosecutor calls it being in the wrong place at the wrong time, which is unfortunate.  Regardless of what anyone says, it was a senseless murder at the hands of individual who was a problem as a juvenile.  Anthony did not know his killer nor were they affiliated in any manner.  The Union County Prosecutor worked diligently and swiftly to identify the murderer only for Eslam Gad to use his Egyptian citizenship as an excuse to return back to Egypt, using an expired passport & travel authorization from the Egypt Consulate of New York, to flee the charge of murder brought against him.  We need the State Department, Governor, President, Egypt Consulate of New York and any other branch of government to rally behind the Union County Prosecutor of NJ to ensure they have the power and support needed to return killer Eslam (Islam) Gad back to the US from Egypt to face the crime of murder he committed on our country, our home, the land for JUSTICE!  Anthony did not deserve to be gunned down in the street like an animal and anyone who commits murder must answer to the charges brought against them.  Show us that the JUSTICE system believes in making people accountable for crimes they commit and do what it takes to bring the killer back.  After all that we have been through as a country and as many of our US citizens that are being held in foreign countries for crimes they did not commit and those that did commit crimes, let's make sure we get the same respect.  Let's make sure the Egyptian government believes that those who commit crimes must be punished in the country the crime was committed and return Eslam (Islam) Gad over to the authorities.  He should not be free in any country because he has no regard for human life and is free to kill again.  Make sure no other family has to endure this never ending pain of losing a loved on to senseless violence!

 BRING ESLAM (ISLAM) GAD BACK FROM EGYPT TO THE UNITED STATES TO FACE HIS MURDER CHARGES ASAP!
