Boss shoots employee dead at lunch gathering...no arrest made..



Hoskins and three other employees of Raynell Industries, a green technology firm, were attending a lunch at Reynolds’ home near Ward, Arkansas. According to Ben Crump, a lawyer for Hoskins’ mother and his widow, the family was told that at some point during the lunch, Reynolds allegedly produced a 44 Magnum Desert Eagle pistol, pointed it at Hoskins, and pulled the trigger, fatally wounding his young employ in the jaw.

“For whatever reason, he pointed the gun at the only African-American guy at the table,” Crump told theGrio, adding that two weeks later, Reynolds has still not been arrested.

8. Interesting. Just after this story is aired, an arrest is made.

I could be a coincidence but I wonder.

I hope the prosecutors don't fuck this up.

16. I do wonder...

if this might be one of those "take your time and get it right" things. Once they arrest him, they have to have an arraignment and charge him with a crime. (I think in most states, it's 48 hours.)...might they have been holding off on a charge until they had all their ducks in a row? (If so, what prevents his flight from jurisdiction in the meanwhile?)

As much as I'm anti-capital-punishment, this is AR...I'm pretty sure they're going to seek the DP if they're indicting on 1st. degree murder with additional charges.

4. Ok then, let's do away with all green technology firms.

Guns don't kill people, green technology firms do. Clearly.

(do I really need a smiley?)

7. Like it or not a gun was used

And this gun was used to kill someone.

You're not making a point with stupid statements like that.

10. Truth sometimes is really stranger than fiction

We watched the movie "Bernie," by Richard Linklater, last night, which oddly enough takes place in the same part of the country more or less (northeast Texas). It's about a gay funeral director (Jack Black) who shoots and kills a rich elderly widow (Shirley Maclaine), and no one in the town (real people) wants to see him prosecuted, because he was so nice and the widow was so despised. It's a true story! I kept saying the same thing you did: "Wow, how could this be true?" It's a comedy with the blackest overtones I've seen in a long time.

15. Actually is a rather funny movies, esp. the way it progresses.

And Shirley McClaine is at her grouchiest best in it.

11. Isn't Ben Crump the attorney for the parents of Trayvon Martin?

No real comment or assumption. Just recognized the name.

12. This is just crazy.

He, presumably, invited his employees to his home. They were eating lunch and this creature pulls out essentially a canon and blows this young man's head off? Were the other invitees at the party in on this apparent sick, racially-motivated hazing incident? It would appear so since nobody seems to have done anything more but shrug their shoulders and say "oh, well." Sick fuckers.

13. I guess the Little Rock cops have been twiddling their thumbs

hoping nobody cared that a Black person was killed. How frightening for that community - your value is related to skin color?

Very, very chilling.

Glad the right thing was done..............FINALLY.

Reynolds sounds like just another fucking psycopath with a gun. The cops protecting him all this time should be ashamed.


Little Rock Law enforcement? YOU SUCK!

17. If a black man had shot a white 21 yr old man

Something tells me it wouldn't have taken 2 weeks to arrest him.
