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.

The political climate is ripe to END THE WAR ON DRUGS

"And no city or community will be safe until we do something to end the War on Drugs, No City. It is our policy that created the violent society that we live in today, just like we did in the 1920s with Alcohol Prohibition. It only took 13 years back then to realize that we made a bad decision, 13 years. And here we are at 40. We need to make a change folks, if we're going to save our kids and it we're going to save our communities.”
Neil Franklin-Retired State Maryland Police Major and Executive Director of LEAP


I believe that at this moment the only people who want to keep all drugs illegal and who know something about the drug market are the drug dealers and the politicians and law enforcement officials that work for the drug dealers.
This may be the only issue that crosses political boundaries in our nation. There actually is now a framework forming across the nation to end Prohibition and the violence that comes with it. 

A New Way to Fight Mexico's Vicious Cartels: Legalizing Marijuana 
By Ioan Grillo / Mexico City   
If marijuana were sold legally in shops north of the Rio Grande, Mexican authorities would be much less eager to spark more bonfires of captured weed. ‘Politicians across the U.S. and in Latin America would become emboldened to change their own marijuana laws,’ Angell said. ‘It is a vote that will be heard across the world."
