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.

Rufus the little guy who was attacked by a Pit-Bull / Rottweiler

Posted by Picasa

On Saturday March 6, 2010 at 6:30am Lew Coates, husband of Nancy Coates was walking their Bichon dog at 3rd and Harmony Streets in Coatesville. He was “accosted” by a mixed Pit-bull Rottweiler.  Lew kept the dogs jaw from closing by grabbing the back of the jaw and squeezing. He held the dog this way for several minutes until the police came. At one point her husband Lew was allegedly knocked down by the dog. Lew was wearing a heavy jacket and gloves both of which were allegedly torn by the Pit-Bull / Rottweiler. 

Rufus and Lew Coates reacted with courage and Nancy Coates, Karl Marking and others did something about our dog owner problems in Coatesville. I think that without their action we would still not have an Animal Control Officer in the City of Coatesville. Rufus, the little guy in the photo, got it all started. 

Rufus was only slightly injured. He is alive and well today.

Whenever you see something good, a structure, an organization or even a stunning view of nature, keep in mind that it didn’t just happen. Somewhere, sometime a group of people got it built or preserved.  In every case it began with one person deciding to do something and keep doing it.
