Fatherless Son by Rashod Coleman
Rashod Coleman is an African-American Police Officer. He started his Law Enforcement career with the Philadelphia Police Department in 2014. With his father being sentenced to two life sentences when Rashod was 3-years-old, it came as a shock to his family and friends when he revealed his intentions of joining the Police Department.
Throughout Rashod's career in Law Enforcement, he has received a heroism award from the city of Philadelphia and several recognitions for confiscating illegal firearms and drugs off of the streets of Philadelphia. Although Rashod enjoyed receiving accolades, he always wrestled with the reality that his father was found guilty of heinous crimes. After Rashod's father was released from prison, they began the painstaking task of exploring how the criminal justice system took advantage of his father. Rashod now advocates for people who have had a similar experience and hopes to bring justice to his family. Now living with his wife and children in Bladensburg, Maryland, Rashod and his father are working on building their relationship.
