A 68-year-old white male.
A citizen of the great state of Georgia.
|God Speed, John Hester...|
A proud member of the Moultrie community.
A victim of a "home invasion gone wrong."
Oprah Winfrey would be proud, as he was obviously a member of that generation of white people she believes must die before a more perfect union can be created; Barack Obama would be proud, because his administration's belief that those citizens collecting social security shouldn't be allowed to own a gun (to protect themselves from "home invasions gone wrong") has, in this story, shown its true objective.
John Hester was a 68-year-old white male, who lived in Moultrie, Georgia, and his white privilege finally ran out. [7 teens arrested in connection with slaying, The Moultrie Observer, July 16, 2015]:
Law enforcement officials say that a gun taken in a July 5 burglary of a residence is the suspected weapon used in a slaying that night of a Norman Park man.
Six teenagers participated in the burglary and were joined by a seventh at the time John Hester Sr. was shot at the end of the driveway of his 353 Hwy. 256 residence, according to information released by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation on Thursday.

Three of the seven teenagers arrested were members of last year’s Colquitt County Packers state champion football team. One of those three was a standout player who would have been a starting running back this year.
In a news release, the agency released the names of the six accused in the burglary that occurred July 5 in the 100 block of Lonnie Brookard Road. Those six teenagers and a seventh teen also have been charged in the killing of Hester.
Hester, 68, was taken to Colquitt Regional Medical Center after being shot after he apparently confronted the teens and exchanged gunfire at about 11 p.m. He was later transferred to Archbold Memorial Hospital in Thomasville, where he died at about 10 a.m. on July 6.
Family members told police they found Hester, who had been shot outside his residence. The initial call to the Colquitt County 911 Center was made at 11:56 p.m.
The six charged in the burglary were arrested as part of an unrelated investigation conducted by the Norman Park Police Department and Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office, the GBI said in its Thursday news release.
“Firearms and electronics were taken from the residence. Law enforcement officers believe that a firearm taken during the burglary was used in the shooting of John Hester,” the release said.

• Brandon Quanterrious “Brad” Wynn, 18, 4520 U.S. Hwy. 319 N.
• Christian Savion Glover, 18, 1515 Fourth Ave. N.E. Apt. L5
• I-Key Tumazs Pinkins, 18 429 Sunrise Ave.
• Ty’Cameron La’Darius Hayes, 18, 1515 Fourth Ave. N.E. Apt. E3
• Adrian Lyryan Robinson, 19
All of those seven, with the exception of Robinson, have been charged in the unrelated burglary on Lonnie Brookard Road.
Wynn, Pinkin and Jones were Packer football players. Jones would have been the featured running back this season.Oh. My. God.
A high school in Georgia is going to be without its featured running back for the 2015 season!
Some Southeastern Conference (SEC) school will now have lost the ability to recruit a black athlete who otherwise would have never had the academic ability to earn admission to the university.
What a shame.
But Oprah Winfrey's ultimate goal is one step closer to fruition; Barack Obama's hope of taking arms away from otherwise defenseless elderly white people is one step closer to fruition.
The revolution of San Domingo 2.0 is upon us.
Rest in Peace, John Hester.
