KKK pamphlets distributed in Woodlake

A resident in Woodlake found this KKK flyer,
 placed in a plastic bag with candy, 
on her front porch last week.

Woodlake, VAAt least six Chesterfield County residents received flyers purportedly from a Ku Klux Klan group last week.


County police received five calls about KKK flyers being left at residences between March 17 and 19, according to spokeswoman Liz Caroon.

“Four of those calls were from the Woodlake area,” said Caroon via email. “At this point, distributing the flyers in this manner does not appear to be a crime, as the distributor did not trespass on anyone’s property and distributing the materials in this way does not violate the littering law. As always, we encourage residents to report suspicious activities or materials left in their neighborhoods.”

The flyers, which read that they are from the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, have a variety of bigoted and false claims against African Americans, Native Americans and Jewish people under the headline “Liberals – The Most Intolerant Hate Group in the World.” The flyer includes contact information for the Loyal White Knights, including an address for a post office box in Pelham, North Carolina.
