KKK starts 'neighborhood watch' in Pennsylvania town
According to fliers circulating a York County town, the KKK has begun a neighborhood watch.
According to fliers circulating Fairview Township in York County, a local Pennsylvania chapter of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan has begun a neighborhood watch.
"It's just like any neighborhood watch program. It's not targeting any specific ethnicity," head of the organization, Frank Ancona, told the Patriot-News. Fliers featuring a drawing of a hooded Klan figure also bear the phrase, "you can sleep tonight knowing the Klan is awake," with a 24-hour hotline number. The Klan reportedly distributed the fliers after a recent influx of break-ins in the area.
The group's initiative is far from comforting for many Ridge Road residents who woke up to find the fliers on their doormats just a week after a man connected to the KKK killed three people outside a Jewish community center in Kansas.
The self-described white supremacist group wrote on its website that members stand, "against all foreign invaders," and believe in the right to, "bear arms against all that threaten our home and family."
Police in the area told the Patriot-News that no individuals have come forward from the local chapter to lay claim to the fliers, and local law enforcement could only charge the group with littering.
