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.

Republican ideologically pure drive to eliminate public employees may stimulate organized crime & crime in general

All across the nation Republican controlled states are eliminating public employees including police. Cutbacks at the Federal and state level here in Pennsylvania are forcing many Pennsylvania municipalities to lay off police.
I believe that in their ideological fever Tea Party Republicans are assisting organized crime. I think that crime organizations and criminals in general will respond to the opportunity the Republican Party has put into their laps.
The Camorra is said to be not a significant Mafia in the USA at this time but they have been and still do appear to be making an effort to control the Port of New York. Do you remember seeing mountains of trash in Italy on TV a few years ago? In 2008 Italy and Europe woke up to the fact that the Camorra operates and controls most of the trash in Italy and that it is dumped illegally in the Campania region.
The Camorra allegedly has absolute control of the largest Port of Central Europe, The Port of Naples. In his book Gomorrah Roberto Saviano claims that the Camorra controls about one half of the goods coming in and out of the Port of Naples. The Camorra is not organized top down as the Sicilian Mafias and their US counterparts are. The Camorra clans operate independently. I think that makes the Camorra difficult for law enforcement to track.
I believe that organized crime Mafia’s have control and influence that public officials are not willing to admit to and may not be aware of. Check out this article from the Guardian:
"Drug money saved banks in global crisis, claims UN advisor 
Drugs and crime chief says $352bn in criminal proceeds was effectively laundered by financial institutions 
·         Rajeev Syal 
·         The Observer, Saturday 12 December 2009 
 Drugs money worth billions of dollars kept the financial system afloat at the height of the global crisis, the United Nations' drugs and crime tsar has told the Observer. 
Antonio Maria Costa, head of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, said he has seen evidence that the proceeds of organised crime were "the only liquid investment capital" available to some banks on the brink of collapse last year. He said that a majority of the $352bn (£216bn) of drugs profits was absorbed into the economic system as a result. 
This will raise questions about crime's influence on the economic system at times of crisis. It will also prompt further examination of the banking sector as world leaders, including Barack Obama and Gordon Brown, call for new International Monetary Fund regulations. Speaking from his office in Vienna, Costa said evidence that illegal money was being absorbed into the financial system was first drawn to his attention by intelligence agencies and prosecutors around 18 months ago. "In many instances, the money from drugs was the only liquid investment capital. In the second half of 2008, liquidity was the banking system's main problem and hence liquid capital became an important factor," he said."

With the universal ideological inspired Republican cutbacks in law enforcement nationwide, maybe the Camorra will be successful in their efforts to control the Port of New York.

And closer to home; if the Rawlings Administration is successful in laying of Coatesville Police we will most likely return to the days of 2006/08 and the late 1990s when drug dealers ran the City of Coatesville.
