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.

Another shooting in Coatesville near Oak St. around midnight Tuesday.

Sometimes I wonder which side some Coatesville City Council members and especially our new city manager is on; the drug dealers or the good people of Coatesville. Rawlings and City Council are busily making the Coatesville PD less effective.
Is Rawlings trying to make Coatesville the Mecca for drug dealers in the Middle Atlantic States?

I'm hearing its a homicide.
It's a confirmed homicide

Update from the Daily Local News:

Coatesville shooting leaves man dead


  1. Rawlings just doesn't care. If he did - he wouldn't have blatantly disregarded the CONTRACT that SPECIFIED he needed to live in the city as a condition of his employment. What does he care what residents pay in taxes? What does he care what the quality of life is - he has no skin in the game. He's going to let things continue to go down the toilet as it's the path of least resistance to his retirement.

  2. The cops ain't doin nothing at all they need to do their work and stop this violence in coatesville people are scared to go out at night cuz they eitha get robbed or jumped or killed , it's just certain areas like 6th ave 7th and Otha streets that are just filled with gangstas and that's real talk . STOP THE KILLINGS , black on black violence !!!!!!

  3. What is the city manager trying to acccomplish by reduction in police workforce? The former DA wanted to work with council and the manager to work on the budget...didn't happen. Prior studies Charette on redelevopment...yet another survey? Is financial insolvency the only way to eliminate this blatent incompetence. And I agree with the last comment...this crime is concentrated in the area they pointed out. How much longer for the fleecing of taxpayer dollars?

  4. Joe Carroll asked Manny Dechter to do a forensic audit of the city finances. He found that $168,000 was missing from cash receipts at the front desk in 2008.
    From my post "Who stole the people's money?”

    "The person who audited records in the summer of 2010 was Manny Dechter. Mr. Dechter was allegedly fired by the Coatesville City Council members present in a heated argument when the unpaid bills of the city council members were discussed. I do not believe that he was entirely finished with the forensic audit. You might also ask Mr. Dechter if he thinks that working in the Coatesville City Hall was a bruising experience."
    I believe that Manny Dechter, who was 80 years old at the time, had materials thrown at him by a City employee and that that same employee punched Ms. Bjorhus (I saw her black eye). You'd think that employee would have been fired on the spot. They "fired" the forensic auditor and after a time Stacy Bjorhus.
    I believe Ms. Bjorhus was not fired earlier because Karl Marking was on City Council and they knew he was likely to spill the beans in public.

    The city has way too much money in the bank to be financially insolvent. I think that the way to clean up city hall is with a grand jury or an FBI public corruption investigation.

  5. So meanwhile this nonsense will cintinue..seems like forever. Why must we pay taxes only to have a city manager blatently not pay. His...along with council members? How does the FBI get involved...or does anyone really care that this clown show keeps rolling on?

  6. Shouldn't matter what kind of record he has, no one deserves to die like this. Gunned down in cold blood in a dark lot. Instead of slinging mud about Tre, why don't those same people put that energy into discovering WHY this type of violence continues in the residential areas. Let me help them...Tre was shot because for years the good residents of Coatesville are all talk. They want something done, but are not willing to help with the process.

    Before blaming the police for any of this mess, take a look back at what YOU have done people! They can only do so much alone. Such a shame that more lives will be needlessly lost and still nothing will be accomplished with the exception of complaining!

    Get off your butts! Go to a meeting! Volunteer for one of the many groups trying to make changes. This is YOUR city! If YOU aren't willing to do anything, don't expect anyone else to.

    Nuff said!

  7. Tre Davis didn't have much of a criminal record, nothing in the records that would hold him back in looking for a job or going to college. As I wrote earlier; “From what I know Tre Leonis Davis was not what I call a bad kid. He might have been a little volatile. He had some reckless endangerment, damage to property and a simple assault charge. All of them in Magisterial Court. Nothing in Common Pleas Court. I'm pretty sure that I met him briefly. He was only 19.”

    Not everyone has the abilities to deal with troubled youth. But, any way that you can serve your community helps us to build a better place to live. A city that is good to live in helps all of us.
