KKK flyers turn up in community

Lakeview, AL (WIAT) – Police want to know who left racially-charged Ku Klux Klan flyers at a neighborhood in Alabama.

The flyers popped up in yards and driveways in Lakeview on Sunday morning.

They were wrapped up in plastic bags and packed with candy.

Many local residents were so upset, they reported the flyers to the local police department.

Shannon Phillips who found KKK Flyers explains, “I didn’t even know that the KKK was alive and well. I certainly didn’t know it was in our area. It disturbed me that they put tootsie rolls in here trying to appeal to children. I mean that’s just pathetic, sick, disgusting.”

Investigators say the community will not tolerate hate speech of any kind.

Officers say they don’t have any leads yet about where the flyers came from, but the department has asked the FBI to help them investigate.
