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.

Is the NRA the primary reason AK-47 Assault Rifles are fired in Coatesville?

We woke up to gunfire from a 357 and 9mm early in the morning of May 22, 2006 when Odell Cannon and Omega Peoples survived a shootout near 7 and Diamond Streets in Coatesville.  They were both wearing vests. I’ve been told that many of the civilians that you see on the corners of Coatesville are wearing vests under their clothing even on the hottest days of summer. Just ask at local Laundromats. 

I wonder what the Vietnam veterans in Coatesville were thinking when their sleep was interrupted by fully automatic fire from an AK-47 on May 18, 2007.

I wonder what the Coatesville Police thought when they found empty casings from AK-47s and later when five AK-47 rifle magazines, several boxes of 7.62-mm ammunition possibly used in that rifle were seized in a raid in East Fallowfield.

One thing about the AK-47 cartridge is that it goes right through anything but combat ceramic plate style body armor. An ordinary vest regularly worn by police does not protect from assault rifle ammunition.

Two West Memphis, Ark., police officers met a father-son team of “sovereign citizens “Jerry and Joe Kane, during a routine morning traffic stop.  Joe Kane suddenly gunned down the two officers with fully automatic fire from his AK-47. The officer’s vests didn’t protect them.

When I was a boy I read “American Rifleman” for tips on marksmanship. One thing I remember learning was how to use a rifle sling for a forearm support. The sling fully supports the rifle and you can lean your elbow on something and let your forearm go limp; making for a steady shot. Now it’s about vest piercing machine guns and armor piercing sniper rifles; just the thing for serious drug traffickers and the occasional wing nut to use against police.

The extreme profitability of drug trafficking leaves millions of dollars on the table that is used to influence public officials.  I think the National Rifle Association is an anti-police pro gunrunner lobbyist organization that is heavily influenced by organized crime drug traffickers masquerading as a gun rights protection group. I don’t buy their “we protect gun rights” 2nd Amendment crap.

I think that drug and arms traffickers can thank “their” NRA lobbyists for this one too:

Expanding the “Castle Doctrine” to apply to anywhere a gun owner is, including gun owning “cornerboys” is being brought to states all over the nation by the National Rifle Association; possibly making events like the Cannon vs. Peoples shootout perfectly legal.

Governor Rendell vetoed the expanded "Castle Doctrine" bill but it will be reintroduced and is expected to be signed by our newbie Governor Corbett.

“Kathy McDonnell has a colorful way of describing what could happen if the Castle Doctrine's expanded.

"What this bill does is basically create what I call the Dr. Seuss defense," said McDonnell, "You can shoot 'em in your car, you can shoot 'em on your roof, you can shoot 'em on the porch, you can shoot 'em just about anywhere, if you have a legal right to be there."
McDonnell is with the Philadelphia District Attorney's office, and is a Legislative liaison for the Pennsylvania District Attorney's Association, which represents all the DA's across the state.  She said even a case like a drug dealer who shoots a rival could end up getting thrown out under the expanded law.” 

Will drug traffickers be sending “Thank You” notes to the American Rifle Association for the “Expanded Castle Doctrine”?
