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.

Are our local codes warrants and parking tickets piling up in boxes?

There are is a lot of concern in Coatesville about codes violations, slumlords, enforcing zoning, sign laws, animal control and other local regulation enforcement. A lot of people are concerned about illegal parking. I believe none of our codes, parking or any local regulations can be enforced.

 I wrote this on February 15, 2011:
 Unenforceable laws?
 Parking tickets and code violations are already ignored by a few connected people, but they mostly are paid.  Coatesville Police can’t handle extra duty serving warrants.  There are outstanding warrants in Coatesville for more serious crimes.  So are we stuck with unenforceable laws until we have a mechanism for municipalities to use State Constables? Does anybody know how to do it? 
County changes warrant collection system
 I believe Judge MacElree, consulting with no one, made a thoughtless decision that if not quickly rescinded could have disastrous consequences for the entire County. I wonder how the Republican Party will spin this one. 

 “In a one-page order dated Feb. 9, Chester County Court of Common Pleas President Judge James P. MacElree II said that beginning immediately; all such warrants would be issued by magisterial district judges only to the municipal police department from which the original violation allegedly occurred. Previously, those warrants were assigned to state constables for collection. The courts would also be restricted from posting the warrant on the county's Web Enforcement Bureau database.
 ‘The order came as a surprise to most of us,’ said Downingtown Police Chief
James McGowan. "Most of the chiefs are greatly concerned and have a lot of reservations."
Warrant changes raise new questions
