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.

Is San Bernardino a new trend in mass shootings?

Is this a paradigm shift? A new trend in mass shooting? 

Maximized killing and at least initially they got away and possibly reloaded in a house. 

As I write this a man and women heavily armed with AR-15s, extra magazines, body armor and side arms, wearing black military uniforms, were killed by police. 

And one appears to be at large. 

They may have planned more attacks. And another attack might still occur. 

This is something different. 

"The shooting in San Bernardino was unlike nearly every other shooting of its type in the United States in the past decade and a half because it involved more than one gunman and the suspects managed to flee the scene. 
Just two of 160 active shooter episodes from 2000 to 2013 had more than one gunman, according to a 2014 report released by the F.B.I. Only 25 of the gunmen got away without being arrested or killed, or committing suicide. 
The study analyzed episodes involving active gunmen, where a shooting was in progress when law enforcement officers responded. 
“Humans in general are adverse to killing other individuals, so it’s hard to sell someone else on helping you with that,” said J. Pete Blair, a criminal justice professor at Texas State University who worked on the F.B.I. study. “Oftentimes the person is socially isolated and not socially successful, and that creates a situation in which you are on your own and it’s hard to get others to buy into your vision or anger."
