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.

Concerning Former Leader of Guatemala Guilty of Genocide Against Mayan Group

Pat Sellers in his 2010 run for PA's 6th Congressional District

I believe that more than any single person Pat Sellers is responsible for the election of Coatesville's "Bloc of Four" City Council.  In his 1996 run for Congress the Lancaster Intelligencer Journal (https://www.box.com/shared/9a8aborcl4reported that Pat Sellers “sought Pratt’s support because of his expertise on gun issues”.
 Pratt's book "Armed People Victorious". Is based in part on his experience with "death squads" in Guatemala. "Armed People Victorious" is the "bible" of the American Militia movement. 

Eight Lanes Out  
Larry Pratt, 58  
Larry Pratt, a gun rights absolutist whose Gun Owners of America (GOA) has been described as "eight lanes to the right" of the National Rifle Association, may well be the person who brought the concept of citizen militias to the radical right.  
In 1990, Pratt wrote a book, Armed People Victorious, based on his study of "citizen defense patrols" used in Guatemala and the Philippines against Communist rebels — patrols that came to be known as death squads for their murderous brutality.  
Picturing these groups in rosy terms, Pratt advocated similar militias in the United States — an idea that finally caught on when he was invited for a meeting of 160 extremists, including many famous white supremacists, in 1992.  
It was at that meeting, hosted in Colorado by white supremacist minister Pete Peters, that the contours of the militia movement were laid out... 

"GUATEMALA CITY — A Guatemalan court on Friday found Gen. Efraín Ríos Montt, the former dictator who ruled Guatemala during one of the bloodiest periods of its long civil war, guilty of genocide and crimes against humanity."
 I think Sellers continues to influence Chester & Lancaster County Republican Party politics.
