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.

I could have said, “I told you so.” Richard Legree took control of Coatesville PD & President Trump

Back in 2005 I told people that Chief Bellizzie would be fired and Richard Legree would somehow control the Coatesville PD. A man said, “I know he wants to, but Richard Legree will never control the Coatesville PD and the City Council can’t fire Chief Bellizzie, Jean Krack has to do that.” I said, “What makes you think Jean Krack will stay on as Coatesville City Manager?"
When Chief Bellizzie and Jean Krack left Coatesville and Richard Legree effectively took control over the City of Coatesville PD the same man asked me, “Jim, how did you know that would happen?’

When I said to him,  “We need to get ready in case Trump wins.” he got very angry, saying; “That’s never going to happen.”
How did I know or rather expect Legree would take over the Coatesville PD and Trump could win? It’s that thing called investigative journalism. I guess, even though I’m not a journalist, I resurrected that tradition from the graveyard of “Freedom of the Press”.

Just two examples:

Trump could easily win PA in November’s Election 
 When Obama ran in 2008 Gov. Rendell supported Clinton.  Mostly, I think, because he thought Obama would win in Philly but not much of the rest of Pennsylvania.  
Governor Rendell’s line of thought dates back to President Andrew Jackson: 
 “SINCE Donald J. Trump shot to the top of Republican polls last fall, pundits have tried to make sense of his popularity. He has been described as a modern-day product of reality-TV narcissism, or the second coming of European fascism. But as he cruises into the South Carolina primary after beating his rivals by double digits in New Hampshire, it’s clear that neither idea quite explains his strength.  
Mr. Trump’s rhetoric resonates with a particular American political tradition. Voters may not know the details of that tradition, but they feel it viscerally when a politician taps into it. Mr. Trump has done just that by emulating a classic model of American democratic leadership.  
A clue as to just which leadership model can be found on a map. While Trump fans are spread across the country, they are heavily concentrated in and near the Appalachian states — from Mississippi and Alabama all the way to western Pennsylvania and New York. The northwest corner of South Carolina is one of the most pro-Trump parts of the country…  
Consciously or not, Mr. Trump’s campaign echoes the style of Andrew Jackson, and the states where Mr. Trump is strongest are the ones that most consistently favored Jackson during his three runs for the White House.”

Under former city manager Harry Walker’s watch COATESVILLE BURNED. 
Below is a portion of the resignation letter of former Coatesville Assistant City Manager Tarron Richardson. He refers to the Walker Administration: 
 “Continued association with the cesspool of corruption and misconduct created by the majority of council and its political appointments may subsequently jeopardize my future professional, personal, and political endeavors. Such inappropriate behavior has caused a mass exodus of city personnel, many who carried with them substantial institutional knowledge of the organization."...

Richard Legree had a dream of being the Chief of Police of the City of Coatesville. Everyone that knew him well knew his dream. 
I believe Harry Walker helped Richard Legree realize his dream, in part. I believe that under Harry Gordon Walker III’s leadership of the city, Richard Legree could have virtual control of Coatesville's police department. 
I believe the result was the "drug business was good again" in Coatesville.
