PHILADELPHIA Five teenagers fatally beat a man on a subway platform after a friend dared them to hit someone, saying "next person we see we're going to hit," one of the defendants allegedly told police.
"We all didn't want to seem like no punk," Ameer Best, 17, told police in a written statement read at a preliminary hearing Wednesday for Best and four co-defendants.
Best and the other teens, Kinta Stanton, Arthur Alston, Rasheem Bell and Nashir Fisher, all 16, will be tried as adults on charges of third-degree murder and conspiracy for the March 26 beating, Municipal Court Judge James DeLeon ruled.

"They already killed somebody. What are we gonna do? Send them to finishing school so they can do it better next time, get away next time," said Steve Conroy.
35,000 dollars bail?
$35k bail for people who attacked and killed someone on a dare.
At least they didn’t drive their own car to the scene. In this day and age, that would amount to special circumstances.
Lets hear it for public transportation.
I think the victim was white. Therefore, since the perps are black, this is obviously NOT a hate crime. As we all know, white males cannot be victims of hate crimes/sarc.
The victim was white, therefore this does not qualify as a hate crime
More of those wild Amish youths, it seems...
At the link is a photo of the White coffee shop manager, who was killed. The Black kid didn’t want to be seen as a punk for not killing him.
“We all didn’t want to seem like no punk,” Ameer Best, 17, told police in a written statement read at a preliminary hearing”
I’ve got news for ya Ameer, you and the rest of your thug buddies are nothing but punks.
“Sean Patrick Conroy, a 36-year-old coffee shop manager, received four or five hard blows, Assistant Medical Examiner Bennett Preston testified. The resulting stress led to a fatal asthma attack.”
What a horrible fate. Prayers for the friends and families of the victim.

Are these people uncivilized savages? I hate to ask, if they had parents at home, if they were ever taught any values, and what kind of moral compass they have? What kind of moral compass does somebody have if they will go out and kill someone on a dare? If someone is dared to do something like that and they don’t feel revulsion, I don’t know what to say. Death penalty for people under 18 was ruled unconstitutional.
“The teens cannot ride public transportation if they get out.”
And I am certain that they will fully comply. Hey, wait a second, if they can’t take the bus, how will they get to the polls to vote for Obama? Dat be discrimination, baby!/s
Lets also hear it for the death penalty.
I guarantee that these creatures had no fathers at home.
I’m with you Dilbert. Here come the socioeconomic reasons why this took place. Brace yourself.
These pieces of c**p give punks a bad name.
