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.

Just in case there is anyone who doesn't know the meaning of the term “Organized Crime”:

Here's a little history about organized crime:

Mafia-International Encyclopedia of the Social and Behavioral Sciences
Neil J. Smelser and Paul B Bates
Abstract | References
"The term ‘mafia’ comes originally from Sicily, where it refers to the private use of violence in public domains. Whatever its feudal dispositions, mafia is a modern phenomenon. It developed in the slipstream of Italian unification when a modern state structure imposed itself on a predominantly agrarian society still largely feudal in its basic features. In the absence of effective central control over the means of violence, mafia took shape as an instrumentum regni of Italian politicians, who chose to rule Sicily through its dominant classes, in particular the landowning aristocracy and an upwardly mobile rural bourgeoisie. Segmentation rather than hierarchy underlies its longevity in Sicily as well as its success in other parts of the world where this specific form of organized crime developed under similar conditions."

When the National Prohibition Act  became law in 1920 the link between criminal enterprise and government was well established in Sicily. 
Prohibition brought the Mafia business/government model to the United States and made organized crime international.
