AUGUSTA – Some Maine residents awoke to discover some unusual fliers outside their homes.
People in Augusta and Freeport found fliers from the Ku Klux Klan promoting the organizations neighborhood watch program.
It states people can sleep well knowing the Klan is awake and asks people to call if they have problems in their neighborhood.
Augusta police said some residents are concerned about the fliers, but there was no crime committed.
Augusta Police Chief Robert Gregoire said “People call us. They’re concerned. A lot of them don’t open up the package. They don’t know what the message is that’s involved. They see kkk. And they immediately have a belief…from their own personal beliefs, that there’s an issue. So they call the police.”
The fliers also list a 1-800 number, which if called plays a greeting saying the Klan is unapologetically committed to the interests and values of the white race.
Similar fliers appeared outside some homes in Knox County last fall.
