In other words, he's the arsonist? (I wonder which way the majority of this city votes?)
Coatesville is a pit unfortunately. Even before the arsons started. This whole situation wasn’t really even making much news until a Coatesville council members house was burned down.
I live very close to the ‘ville’, and stay away as much as possible.
The mentality of the residents reminds me of those communities who think Gang members/biker gangs/Mexican Mafias ect are cool and like to hang with the likes.
Another poster questioned the voting demographics of the area my guess is many dont vote.
This story has not been reported on via the media here on the West Coast much at all.
Perhaps the mentality of this community leaves little to report on.
If that is truly the case then why should anyone who cares spend time with these arson events.
Let these people be their own victims and refuse them any tax dollar relief funds when their homes go up in flames or perhaps the homes are rentals so not much pride in a dwelling you are working hard to become owner of.
Are you local to these arson crimes?
If so what is your take on the lack of responsiveness from the community?
> For decades, an anti-snitching mentality has hampered law enforcement in Coatesville, but the code of silence may not be fireproof.
People who promote “No Snitching” ought to be arrested and thrown in gaol. There is already a perfectly good crime on the books called “Thwarting the Cause of Justice”, which the offense could fall under. And “Snitches Get Stitches and End Up in Ditches” would easily fall under “Uttering a Threat”, which is also a crime.
Darn shame if Granny's house burned down...
I drove around Coatesville not too long ago, trying to find a place that could be considered “not too Third World” as a possibly (cheaper) place to live. I failed in finding any part of Coatesville that was not Third World-ish.
