Before I get the hate mail to read the story, He is being charged as murder, as a Juv so maybe he will get prison until 21.

Start setting examples, 17 is plenty old enought to know the consequences of pulling the trigger. Charge this punk as an adult, put a needle in his arm and set the example now.

The boy was just arrested today. It is still possible the commonwealth atty. will push to charge him as an adult. You can't charge a juvenile as an adult at first because there are procedures for this. As for the death penalty, the US Supreme court has ruled you can't execute a person for a crime commited as a juvenile.
This kid should be investigated for links to the other many unsolved murders in NN.

He WAS charged with murder. He was also charged with use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

Once again reading comprehension is a must, for making comments. He was charged with murder. Read the article again.

Now the Commonwealth Attorney needs to charge him as an adult and they probably will.

Well, this serves as another fine example by the Daily Press on how NOT to write an article.

I wonder did all the teens know each other?

Is this gang related? Is this drug related?

The youth, charged with this murder is now 18 years old deserves to live the rest of his natural life in jail.

Here’s an idea, for every little wanna be gang-banger, thug and gun wielding piss ant, irregardless of their color or age, who feels hold or having a gun makes them a man – should be sent overseas to serve as landmine finders…walk this way…. If your not contributing to this society here – you are free to leave.

I am with you I do wish the 'Daily Liberal' would give more info on if it was 'gang related' or 'drug related', I think they did say that it started with a fight at school. And yes 'lets send the little wanna be gang-banger, thug and gun wielding piss ant, irregardless of their color or age, who feels hold or having a gun makes them a man – should be sent overseas to serve as landmine finders…walk this way….AND the girls as well who feel like that, and they are out there.

THEY SAID IT STARTED IN SCHOOL BUT THE PAPER DIDNT SAID THAT RASHID COLEMAN WAS JUMP BY ABOUT 5 BOYS IN SCHOOL AND THAT HE DIDNT KNOW WHY THEY TRY TO JUMP HIM. BUT ABOUT 4 HOURS EARLIER THE SAME BOYS JUMP ANOTHER BOY AND SENT HIM TO THE HOSPITAL.RASHID COLEMAN WAS ADMITTED BACK IN SCHOOL BECAUSE HIS MOTHER DIDNT THINK THAT WAS RIGHT FOR HIM TO STOP HIS EDUCATION BECAUSE HE WAS FIGHTING BACK. ONE OF THE BOYS BROTHER THAT JUMP HIM WAS AT ENTERPRISE THAT GOT KICKED OUT OF SCHOOL A YEAR AGO KILLED HIM.

I had heard that from a student last year, the day of the fight, and at the time thought it was very sad. This is just tragic for the parents of this child. I hope all the little hood rats are caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Just so that you know, Rashid Coleman was not a gang banger or a drug dealer. He was a born leader, didn't follow crowds, and was an aspiring real estate investor. He was kind and mostly quiet. Handsome and intelligent. He was a dreamer and he had plans. He was clean, and loved to clean. Kept his bed made and always smelled good. He was not a thug or a gun wielding **** ant...He was really growing into a fine young man.

You must be kidding. With a name like Rashid he had to be a gang banger and drug dealer.
