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.

October 22. 2007 The Coatesville Administration did not know that 200 police would march side by side into the City Council Meeting

From the Chester County Reporter:
"Five months ago the police department was a mess,’ said Schenk. Matthews was hired in April. Schenk said many of the police officers who departed didn't want to work for a black chief. ‘If that's the reason they left, they need to be gone,’ he said. Statements that angered District Attorney Joe Carroll.

‘The department was not a mess before Chief Matthews came here,’ shouted Carroll, pointing his finger at Schenk. And to say these officers left because of racism is outrageous.’ Schenk later retracted his statement regarding officers not wanting to work for a black chief, saying it was based on rumor.”

Joe Carroll is a very quiet spoken gentleman. He rarely raises his voice. Joe's hands shook as he said the words below. A recording of Kurt Schenk’s Comments and Joe Carroll's response at that meeting is below:
