First of its not his parents fault not at all.How do yall know if he wasnt on his way home or not.Yall dont know nothing so maybe yall should keep yall comments to yall self if its not positive.And if the police was out like they are in the day time then this should have never happen.

Typically 'ville mentality - blame the police. Everything that is wrong with your life is the fault of the police.

Take some responsibility for once.

I've lived in coatesville for a long time and yeah now you see the police every where but I never heard that a police don't know what to do when someone got shot yeah that's right that's what they said! They don't know what the hell to do ! WTF how don't you know what to do ! And no people was just surprised that carron got shot ! Carron was a good boy never really heard nothing bad about him.he always had people laughing and smiling ! He wad always there when someone was feeling down.So don't sit there and type all of that bs if you never even knew carron ! Like I said he could of been on his way home or was stoping somewhere to get food or something you don't know.and the guy that shot him was a grown ass man so what you mean.what the hell is a grown man shooting a teenager! What happen to no guns people not killing each other.it use to be if you had a problem go in the street in settle it or talk it out. Yeah you might lose but you lose some and you win some! You can't win them all ! And y'all blaming the parents for what please tell me ! Imagine if that was your child that got shot and people was blaming you???you would be thinking why are they blaming me.yeah y'all sat they should be in the house but if you ride around coatesville you see alot of kids just hanging out.and since repo 1 I think you the one that said you see cops on every corner so where were they when this was going on because they surely didn't come right away?!and what you mean blame the people blame them for what??the cops should be out more often before! Now that that happen now they want to be out riding around...isn't that something! I lost to family members rasheem(mooch) and now carron n they were both young and wasn't ready.and a you people do is blame the damn parents! I bet your kids be doing things you don't even know about and you want to be in here talking all this stuff! So here's the question if your child does something wrong should we blame you???

i dont blame the parents not at all and im very very sorry about what happened. i dont wish that on anyone
but you cant blame the police there is only so many of them in a city with alot of crime i no u dont wanna here it but the people of coatesville need to help out a little bit to.tell the cops if you no something. i bet you no someone who did a crime did you tell the cops. i bet not stop trying to save people you are just herting others. thats how you need to c it help out a little.
i bet if more people work with the police you can get alot more bad people off the streets
dont let it fool you im not a big fan of alot of police but coatesville police are not that bad go to allentown, norristown parts of phily, chester you will think coatesville cops are great. trust me im at all of them and on my end coatesville is the most helpful but like i said im very very about the child who passed. and i hope all of you help the cops find the a..hole that did it before it happens again it may be me or you next time

The cops knows who did it and us searching for him they already checking the guys relative houses so they good they don't need no help because nobody really knows where that fucker is!And coatesville cops are that good from what they did to my other family member mooch ! Who trys to hand cuff someone when they already hurt and not even out the car and was hard for him to even get out! Yeah so coatesville cops aren't great!And you should be a shame for saying it looked like a big joke when people where around where carron had got shot! How about people said that about one of your family members "it looked like a big joke" you would be very angry! Repo 1 do you even live in coatesville???

Really??? Just proofread these ridiculous comments. I graduated from Coatesville High School and I know for a fact that English is taught a lot better than this. Mr. West would be shaking his head at this butchery of the English language. I am sorry for the families loss. If he was an innocent bystander it is a shame. If he was involved in something nefarious than we all know the rules of the game....some people lose. As far as not knowing if he was on the way home Family Member, if it was after curfew, he shouldn't have been "on the way home" or "stopping to get food" he should have already been home so your arguments there are invalid. I too have lost family members in Coatesville to violence. It hurts and takes forever to move on, but don't let your emotions make you propose a point that is wrong. So who is to blame?? The short answer everyone. The kids need something to do other than the wrong thing. The police need to be more proactive instead of reactive. And the parents need to know who/what/when/where/and why their kids are doing. Intrusive leadership is the needed. I suggest anyone in the "Ville" do the smart thing. Get your education and get the hell out of that city.
