THERE ARE STILL LOTS OF UNANSWERED QUESTIONS TO WHAT REALLY HAPPEN, ITS SO EASY TO BLAME THE DEAD!!
WHY DID IT TAKE OVER 15 HOURS TO FINE HIM IN TEN FEET OF WATER??? WHY DIDN'T THE OFFICERS (SHRFS) ACT SOONER, MAYBE IF HE WASN'T THE ONLY BLACK IN THE GROUP OF KIDS IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A FASTER AND HARDER SEARCH. THE FAMILY STILL HAS NO ANSWERS, HE WAS A GOOD KID! THE WHOLE STORY NEEDS TO BE TOLD!!!! BUT DON'T COUNT ON MASON COUNTY TO TELL IT!!!

I knew your mom, dad, and Anthony many years ago. He was always a very sweet little boy. The last time I saw you you were less than a month old. I am very sorry to hear about Anthony and wanted to let you know that my prayers are with you. I had not seen Anthony in many years but will always remember a skinny little kid who always had plenty of hugs to give. Much love to your Mom and Dad, and hopefully someday things will seem easier. Take Care, Jennifer

FYI...to the people out there who think they know everything and the people out there who believe what the media says, u need to wake up! I know Anthony and have ever since I was in Kindergarten. Nobody is to judge him whether he did drink or not. If he did, then we all make mistakes and we pay for them. If he didn't then those of u accusing him wrongfully will have to live with the pride of criticizing someone who is not here to defend themselves. Nobody will ever know the real truth except Anthony himself and god. And if you are not Anthony please stop accusing him when you think you know what really happen. As for myself I think he is an amazing man. He is greatly missed and not a day goes by that I dont think of him. RIP Anthony Michael Coleman.

I can tell all you the truth now I was a witness to what happened I was 8 when it happened but now im and I know the cop didn't do shit to help him there was a man who tried to get in the water before the cop did and he told him if he gets in the water he will arrest him and the cop took his sweet ass time getting his shit off and getting into the water
