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.

Did Judge Bortner make a colossal miscalculation?

Daily Local News

Judge bans video from trial

 Keeping the jury from viewing “The Sequel” don’t snitch video made by former Area 14 Republican Party Chairman Richard Legree’s nephew Harvey “Bitsy” Legree keeps the jury in the dark about what it’s like to live Coatesville.

It’s not ‘snitching,’ it’s standing up for your community

Some people think Coatesville is just another Chester County village, that it couldn’t have organized crime as vicious and deadly as what exists in Baltimore or North Philadelphia. That’s dead wrong.
I’ve written extensively about Coatesville being the organized crime and drug depot for Chester County or Chester County’s “Little Sicily”. There is an alternative economy in Chester County. If say prohibition ended and all drugs were legalized I believe there would be a short lived economic collapse in central and western Chester County. That is car dealers, restaurants, churches and other local businesses would lose customers until those customers could replace the trickle down money from drug sales.
Living in a place where families have known each other for more than 100 years can make you feel comfortable. But when it enables drug traffickers with operations that were set in stone decades ago to know all about all of your extended family it can establish an envelope of fear that covers the entire town.

A CLIMATE OF FEAR BLANKETS COATESVILLE; that small town in Southern Italy with all the Mafia problems

Some street dealers actually had to go get nine to five jobs to make up for their business losses during the arson fire period when Coatesville was crawling with undercover ATF and State Police. I assume there was less cash in some of the local church’s Sunday collections also. The infusion of undercover officers during the arsons hurt the drug business in Chester County but it mostly came back when they left.

When I went to the Courthouse in Chester County and asked around about a certain Coatesville resident there was someone waiting at my front door when I got back home. I think Coatesville residents that are witnesses to a murder know they can’t be seen in the Chester County Justice Center. That it could be fatal to someone back home.
I don’t think violent Coatesville drug kingpins should be tried in Commonwealth Court in Chester County. It’s just way too easy to intimidate witnesses and juries.  But it’s just not possible to charge all of them federally.

An excellent comment was made in regards to: The first duty of a new City Manager is to make the streets safe

If I had Bitsy Legree’s video I would post it immediately
