Public Corruption in Chester County, PA
I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.

The United States of America is the top user country of illegal drugs.
The United States of America is the top user country of illegal drugs. Reducing illegal drug use at the person to person level would have a real effect on the market for illegal drugs. It would reduce the violence and despair in our own country and also in the increasingly desperate situations in countries to our South. The violence there has become a war; a war not on drugs but a war between drug dealer armies and the police and armies of those countries. Thousands of people are caught in the crossfire.
SUR-13 members tried to make a connection here in Coatesville last year. I believe that the 3 SUR-13 members that were arrested by East Fallowfield Police were a part of a group in Virginia and Maryland. An older man with 1 and 3 shaved eyebrows was in a Coatesville laundromat at about that same time. An investigation lead to the break up of that SUR-13 group. I have not seen any new SUR-13 graffiti since then.
