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.

"RED TAILS" Tuskegee Airmen January 20, 2012

We have at least one “Red Tail” or Tuskegee Airman in Coatesville and lots of people related to Tuskegee Airmen; including Ingrid Jones’ relative Percy Sutton. 

While many bomber escort fighter pilots went off to score kills on German planes the “Red Tails” had a reputation for staying with the bombers. The B-17 crews were very happy to see the P-51 Mustangs with the red tails because that meant they would come back. The Germans were terrified of them.

One interesting thing about the Tuskegee Airmen; because of the reluctance of Army Air Corps Generals to send black pilots into combat, they were the most highly trained and highly skilled fighter pilots in the Army Air Force.
