KKK Starts Neighborhood Watch Group In Missouri

KKK Starting Neighborhood Watch

The Ku Klux Klan is apparently trying to recruit members for a neighborhood watch group in Springfield Missouri — and residents are understandably less than pleased.

The KKK’s flier invitations were found on several lawns last Sunday morning, bearing the name of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.

The flier came complete with an image of a hooded figure pointing at the reader, reports KY3. The flier asks, “Are there troubles in your neighborhood? Contact the… Klan today.”

One resident, Steven Burchett, stated of the KKK’s neighborhood watch flier, “I found the note in the front yard. And it was from the Klan. I was furious.” Burthett added:

“That just tells you what a coward they are. A simple knock at the door, I can say I am not interested, thank you very much and go on. But instead they have to come through in the middle of the night and drop a rock in the front yard.”

Burchett wasn’t the only one to take offense by the KKK’s attempt to start a neighborhood watch program in Springfield. The Springfield News-Leader notes that the neighborhood in question is one in transition from homeowners to renters. It also has a growing black population.

Neighbors also gave varying accounts of how rampant crime was in the neighborhood. While one couple claimed the neighborhood was relatively quiet with hardly any crime issues, another man, Kyle Davis, said that robberies were the norm.

He added, “They have hit house, after house, after house.” Davis went on to say of the KKK neighborhood watch flier, “If you have to have the Klan come in because police won’t do anything, this is the end of days.”

Despite some crime, residents insist they do not want help from the Ku Klux Klan. Burchett stated, “I am upset over this. I have no use for them people. None whatsoever. 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.”

Would you allow the KKK to start a neighborhood watch program in your area?

There is nothing GOOD about the KKK they are Domestic Terrorists...adopting highways is a way to advertise and get their name out there

I'm not trolling or I wouldn't have used my SN, I'm just saying as awful as their past is, they have been known to do good things in the communities!

Their past is 'awful', their present is 'awful' and their future is 'awful'. There is no 'good' in the KKK. Just stop.

Weird because they just started this exact same thing in Connecticut! The governor publicly told them that they are not welcome in this state... Neighborhood watch program or not.

1) This group doesn't have an ANON feature, so you would HAVE to use your SN

2) If you cannot see that the Klan ITSELF is BAD so it can NEVER be good than there is no point in continuing the conversation

you support a racist org because they (as part of their advertising strategy and its working for folks like yourself) adopt a highway
