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.

Teaching Tolerance film about Selma march set to premiere amid 50th anniversary celebration

"The SPLC’s new Teaching Tolerance film about the Selma voting rights march will premiere this week in Montgomery during the festivities marking the 50th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday,” the day Alabama state troopers attacked civil rights activists on the Edmund Pettus Bridge.
Selma: The Bridge to the Ballot, narrated by Academy Award-winning actress Octavia Spencer, examines the true story of the 1965 Selma-to-Montgomery march and the battle for voting rights. It’s told from the perspective of teachers and students at the forefront of the historic movement.
"Our film is a documentary that tells an important story not touched on by the Hollywood feature,” said SPLC President Richard Cohen, executive producer of the film. “It’s the true story of the forgotten heroes, Selma’s courageous students and teachers who stood up against injustice despite facing intimidation, violence and arrests.”
The SPLC’s new classroom documentary, Selma: The Bridge to the Ballot, tells the story of the 1965 Selma voting struggle through the eyes of teachers and students who were at the forefront of the movement.
The SPLC has already begun shipping the 40-minute film and its teaching guide to thousands of schools across America. Nearly 25,000 orders have been processed."

The film is provided free of charge to educators and civic organizations.
