Welcome to the Coatesville Dems Blog

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.

Victims of crime

Listening to the stories of the victims of crime here is like having your heart not just sink but also dragged through the gutter. I can imagine that every day of not seeing the criminal that tore a loved one from them brought to justice is a day spent partly in anguish.

The victims of crime in Coatesville have called on the city for retribution. They have called on the District Attorney for retribution. Asking the inept Administration of the City of Coatesville to do anything is a futile task. I believe that retribution is coming from the District Attorney’s side. But it looks as though the city administration is more concerned with the rights of criminals than their victims.

Seeing a criminal brought to justice does bring relief to the victims of crime and their loved ones. For some reason that relief or, if you will, pleasure brought by the arrest, conviction and sentencing of a criminal is something that we don’t like to talk about. That pleasure felt is real and it helps to fill a hole in the hearts of the victims of criminals. It is a hole that gets more empty and more lonely as time goes by without retribution.
