(VIDEO) Are you KKKidding Me?? KKKeeping You Safe??! Unsolicited Klan fliers litter Lexington, Missouri lawns and businesses
Hundreds of residents in the small town of Lexington, Mo., awoke Monday morning to an unexpected and unwanted delivery: recruitment fliers from the Ku Klux Klan.
The fliers were packed into plastic baggies filled with gravel and tossed onto the lawns of homes and businesses in the predawn hours of Monday morning.
“Franklin Street, South Street, just about any street you can name, they were just riding around throwing them out,” Lexington Police Chief Don Rector said.
Rector estimated his office has recovered 100 of the bags and that hundreds more were likely distributed around town.
The baggies contain fliers of at least two different types. One promotes a “neighborhood watch” and features the image of a hooded Klansman, advising residents to call the KKK about crime in their area.
