Why is this article so short and why does it have so little detail? Is something being covered up?

This is my cousin and I am thinking the exact same thing it is sooo sad that no info is given to wake up to news like this is tough and very hard to swallow. Not that our family hasn't been through enough, but already lies have been told and for some unknown reason we still don't know the truth. Keep us in your prayers and to the coward that did this pray for him as well.

Peace, Ernest Hoskins Jr. was my nephew and it saddens me also to know very little about the incident. It doesn't sound right to me and I know that it is a cover up b.u.t. the truth will be revealed in due time. Word is Bond. Peace.

This is a shame..... Ernest was a great friend of mine.... I've been thinking this sense I first realized that this hadn't been in the newspaper and if not for social media I wouldn't have known til next week cause we had plans. They trying to keep us from coming together about this issue.... My prayers go out to The Hoskins Family and His Wife Nikki and family.... A lot of shock mixed with hurt....

This is a dsgrace. This guy was killed in WARD arkansas, nothing is being said because they are covering up the truth. NAACP need to get involved in this. They are killing our young men and getting away with it.

Ernest was and still is my nephew and Ronnie is my husband, his uncle. We all agree about there needs to be an investigation, by outside sources who will bring national and international attention to Ernest's life and "questionable" death! He was a great person, who didn't and doesn't deserve this! The NAACP, RAINBOW COALITION, AL SHARPTON, NATION OF ISLAM, AND ANYONE SEEKING JUSTICE! It's sad to say, but "it's never a problem until it affects you!" We all have to live in this world, but I do not want to continue to lose more Black men, women, or children, this way and for it to be continually ,swept under the rug or just some byline on a News website!1

What exactly do yall know? Even the NAACP and Rainbow Coalition will need some details. Are the authorities saying they're investigating? Can they at least give the details of his death. This is so unusual. It's gonna be up to the family to make sure something is done. By "done" I mean continuing nag the hell out the police department until some answers are given. Don't ever stop...not until they give you some answers. Something just isn't adding up here.

We have small children who play outside do we need to put locks dow?!?!?! Answers please!!!! Concerned citizen

Yes, yes, yes amen, Al Sharpton will defend you like he did Tawana Brawdy. Call him, he is the savior and truth speaker.

I'm hearing that the young man, Ernest, was at a staff meeting at his boss's house. At the end of the meeting, the boss went to a room, and came out with a gun. He then shot Ernest in the face. Afterwards, he called cops and told them he had made a mistake and waited for them to arrive. He was never arrested. Someone said that he told the cops that they were "horse playing". I'm not sure how much of this is true. I got this off Facebook where his cousin is appealing for help. I'm wondering why a work meeting would be held at the manager's home. Sounds like they had beef at work and the manager wanted to take care of Ernest. It was premeditated and a setup.

Seems to me Ernest should have kept his tail in NLR. Or maybe it was an accident. Or maybe it was intentional. Or maybe he shouldn't have been trying to rob that house.

Al Sharpton? Nation of Islam? Are you that uneducated and ignorant? "Lordy who killed my baby!!??" Give me a break. He was shot, that sucks for his family. But you waterheads post online and sound like...... waterheads. You know why no one takes you serious? Have someone other than your cousin's nephew's brother read your post, preferably with some degree of intelligence. Let me type slower if you are having a hard time keeping up..........

Now that you've caught up, at least plea for help and not sound like trash
