Black Man Shot by His Boss Right After Having a Baby

An early Friday in November should have been the end of the work week for 21-year-old Ernest Hoskins of North Little Rock. His shooter is expected to go to trial in January.

What started out as a routine business meeting at the home of his boss ended with the death of the young father and newlywed.

According to witnesses, the owner of Reynell Industries, Christopher Reynolds, 34, of Ward, Ark., became upset over sales figures from the previous week.

According to the affidavit, one witness asserted owner Reynolds had complained that Mr. Hoskins had not been “producing” for the business, got a gun and fired it at Mr. Hoskins.

Mr. Reynolds stated in an affidavit that he picked up the gun, a .44 magnum, pointed the gun at Mr. Hoskins head and pulled the trigger but the gun did not fire.

“I then pulled the slide back and a round went into the chamber” and the gun went off while he was trying to “de-cock” it by pulling the trigger and holding the hammer.

That shot struck Mr. Hoskins in the head and ended his life in a small town approximately 30 miles north of Little Rock.

According to Nikki Hoskins, Earnest’s wife of less than five months, her husband had just received a promotion. He was made regional sales manager over the southern U.S., she said. He was at his boss’s house every day, and the employer extended dinner invitations to the couple.

Mr. Reynolds even took Earnest to meet his parents and enjoyed breakfast and lunch with them on more than one occasion, she added.

Ms. Hoskins described the relationship between her husband and his employer as unusually close, which made his death even more difficult to explain.

Earnest received a gift of a sword in the mail from Mr. Reynolds Nov. 5, four days before the shooting, she said. She told him he could not keep in the house. But then came gifts of several daggers Nov. 6, about which Mr. Reynolds allegedly said, “You’ll have to use them sooner or later,” according to the young widow.

    Sounds like the boss was NUTS. We have too many people playing around with guns… like we live in the WILD, WILD WEST.

    THIS IS A REAL TEAR-JERKER !!! This morning more than 20 people (including children) were killed in an elementary school. In this case, a young shooter in a bullet proof vest. walked into the school armed and opened fire. It’s not just happening in the ghettos in Chicago (or other big cities). These shootings have been happening in theatres, colleges, suburbs, and other so-called ‘safe’ places.

    THERE IS TOO MUCH FOCUS ON VIOLENCE, WAR, etc. on TV, in video games, in movies, etc.

    Dr. M. L. King (anti-war, anti-poverty activisti) once warned us…
    “The bombs that we drop over there — will one day explode over here.”

    This mulatto is faker than a caucasoid! Those fake looks on his face and NO TEARS just proves how this mulatto feels about the caucasoid side of his bloodline.

    He really HATES Black people, and love caucasoids! No way would I have started “fake crying” on national tell-a-LIE-vision. A president is suppose to be strong, show courage, and stand tall, but he was a first class wimp!!! These yankees are laughing at this puppet. A female caucasoid annoubcer called him a si*ssy on national tv!!!

    This guy has no ba*lls at all. He was selected and hired to take care of crackers, so they can continue to kill, maim, shoot and beat Black people to death…and it has gotten worse, since he was selected back in office!!!

    What goes around comes around, and the Black Messiah is doing unto crackers what they do unto us. Karma comes back 10 fold. Last week Blacks were killed by cracker pigs and cracker citizens; now the chickens have come home to roost!

    I really have no sympathy for those people because when we are murdered, they have no sympathy for us!

    MORE IS YET TO COME!!!

    YOU CAN’T FVCK WITH THE BLACK MESSIAH!!!

    By the way…this is the second time a Black man has been shot by a racist cracker at their home! Remember, another brother was shot in the face by his cracker supervisor just weeks ago when he went and ate dinner at his house!

    No one has been arrested!!!

    WAKE UP FOLKS; THIS IS WAR, RIGHT HERE ON US BLACKS!!!

    The above comments were for the O’Drama article (fake tear article on school shooting)
    ==================================

    Here’s the comment for this article. Not too long ago another Black man was shot by his supervisor! No one was arrested for that murder, and there were other caucasoids at his house when the brother was shot in the face POINT BLANK!!!

    WHERE’S THE SYMPATHY AND LOWERING OF THE FLAG FOR THIS BROTHER?

    Now, this brother (Mr. Hoskins) has been murdered by the OWNER of the company he was working at. If you read the article, it stated that the brother was getting a PROMOTION to be a regional sales manager over the southern region of the u.s. This cracker was JEALOUS! How could LIE and say, the brother was not producing on the job, but his wife just stated, he had recieved a PROMOTION; NOT DEMOTION!!! This redneck was trying to ‘buy’ Mr. Hopkin’s friendship, and also try to persuade him to stay with him!!! THIS IS MY OBSERVATION!!!

    WHERE’S THAT FAKE O’DRAMA BRINGING THESE STORIES TO THE FOREFRONT?

    This is the nature of the beasts, that we are dealing with, which are these demonic caucasoids!!! Their bible iven calls them, ‘creatures’, then you know you cannot Trust a monster!!!

    What bothers me, is these new age slaves, who are on these airways, acting so sad and patriotic for these caucasians, but they have NO SYMPATHY when OUR people are murdered and killed by caucasoids, especially these cracker pigs!

    These caucasoids HATE US, but when I hear these weak negroids worrying about massa’s kids, while they don’t want to take care of their OWN, it makes my liver qiver!!!

    Never break bread with your enemy….this naive behavior comes from the sickness of still wanting to be accepted and falling victim….Never trust your enemy….like a snake, he will always bite you…ALWAYS. Even at the dinner table sharing wine, a snake will bite you. You are not friends, so do not get it twisted. Take it literally or metaphorically. It is what it is.
