Over a year ago John Hernandez was murdered outside of a Denny’s by Terry Thompson and Shauna Thompson. Terry Thompson was the main aggressor in the situation. The loss of a family has been very traumatic for the entire Hernandez Family. The family, although they know they will not get John back they are calling for justice for their loved one. The family is committed to be present during court proceeding and at the end they want #JusticeforJohn.
"Our heart goes out to the Hernandez Family during this very difficult time. The community supports the Hernandez family and we will stand by them until we get #JusticeforJohn. We will be present every step of the way with the family and hope that we may get to a point where we can move past this as a community. John Presente!" – Cesar Espinosa Executive Director FIEL
