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.

Recording of the Community - Police Forum for the Coatesville Area June 18, 2015

On Thursday June 18, 2015 we had the 1st Community - Police Forum for the Coatesville Area at the New Life in Fellowship Church in Coatesville, PA. 

I don't know of a meeting quite like this one in Chester County or anywhere. If anyone does put it in the comments below. 
Chief John Laufer  -  Coatesville 
Chief Joseph Elias -  Caln Township 
Chief Lew Wilson -    South Coatesville 
Chief Joseph Friel -  Valley Township

The Community Manifesto was read by Rev. and former Coatesville Magistrate Judge Robert Davis. 

State Senator Andrew Dinniman was in attendance 

The questions for the police chiefs were written by community members on 3 x 5 cards and read to the chiefs by Coatesville Magistrate Judge Gregory Hines.

I think what makes this Community - Police Forum unique is that there was no specific event that called for the meeting. And that people who had questions for the police chiefs could remain anonymous. 

The meeting was calm. Some of the questions were contentious. I don’t believe that those questions could have been delivered to the chiefs without some cover of anonymity. 

If anyone wanted to speak to the any of the chiefs one to one they were available for a time after the meeting. 

A recording of the full meeting is below. It was recorded in the church sanctuary. I removed as much reverberation as I was able to:
