Guest: Rashod Coleman

Bio: Rashod Coleman is an African-American Police Officer in Philadelphia who grew up with a father in the home. Despite this disadvantage, Rashod has gone on to be a loving and involved father, an author, criminal justice advocate and to have a successful Law Enforcement career. Some of his achievements are receiving a heroism award from the city of Philadelphia and several recognitions for confiscating illegal firearms and drugs off the streets of Philadelphia. Listen as he talks too about growing up without a father, the circumstances of his father’s imprisonment, and experience as a criminal justice advocate.

In the news every day we hear about young people killing one another and or just going to jail for some criminal activity. Without a doubt one of main reasons is because of no father in the home. Fatherless homes has other bad resulting consequences too and that is; more likely to be poor, become involved in drug and alcohol abuse, drop out of school, suffer from health and emotional problems, and teen pregnancy.
