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.
My son goes to school down there. He lives in West Chester.
Your post pretty much sums up my perspective on those who live in the ville.
I grew up and left weeks before legal age in the East Bay Area of San Fran. Richmond/East Oakland/ Pittsburg/Antioch different skin color in each area but the same low life scum thug mentality.
Back in the 50s/60s once thriving also in steel/paper mills.
Those who are selfless move out and away.
And my guess is many dont vote or get involved in the political process other than to advance their own agenda and prosperity.
Coatesville has never been a very nice place. the only thing that I remember about it was that my high school used to meet them in the state baskeball championships.
Sounds like forced gentrification or vigilantism.
This is from news feed web site:
Coatesville is within easy access of Route 222 ‘ a 140km motorway that connects New York; Newark, New Jersey; Philadelphia and Baltimore, Maryland and known for years to be a pipeline for gangs involved in the drugs trade. Regardless of the arsonists’ identity and motive, residents say they are terrified. Robin Scott, a local councilwoman, saw her home destroyed on Saturday night when a fire damaged 15 homes in total. She and her family got out safely after police alerted them. ‘To see it all happen the way that it did was devastating and I wouldn’t wish that on anyone,’ she said.  COATESVILLE, Pennsylvania (CNN) —
