Regular price $5.00 Sale

Cincinnati, Ohio 1980 - a heavily armed man in a red hunting jacket takes a TV station hostage at 2am, demanding they broadcast his message of equality for the American underclass. The following day, he is dead by his own hand, leaving behind a video-taped confession of his girlfriend's murder.
The actions of James R. Hoskins divided opinion among the people of Cincinnati. In the weeks and months following Hoskin's actions, letters of support poured into newspapers across America acknowledging the decline of their society and an imbalance of the social strata. A portrait emerges of Hoskins as a frustrated artist, '60s counterculture activist, murderer and drug-addled psychopath. Detailed here across 44 pages are his actions as reported in newspapers and magazines in the weeks, months and years following this event, his desperate message fading as the years pass.
An excerpt from Hoskins' TV interview appears in the classic documentary, The Killing of America which is to be released by Ex Film in 2020.
