The KKK Wants To Recruit Springfield Residents For A Neighborhood Watch Program

“You can sleep tonight knowing the Klan is awake.”

2. Residents of Springfield, Mo., found a KKK flyer and a small rock inside a plastic bag in their yards, reports KY3 News. The flyer, from the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, promoted a neighborhood watch program.

When KY3 contacted the “Klanline” listed on the flyer, a representative from the KKK told them this was a part of a nationwide flyer campaign to form Klan-sponsored neighborhood watch groups that help the police fight crime.

He also said the programs are not about race, claiming that if members saw a white guy ‘up to no good’ they would alert police just as well.

5. Steve Burchett, a resident who found the flyer, was “furious.”

He told KY3:

“I am upset over this. I have no use for them people. None whatsoever,” explained Burchett. “You know this is 2013. I don’t know what to say for words on that part on how much hate and discontent can just keep on going.
