SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Some neighbors on the city’s west-central side were surprised by an “invitation” that landed in their yards.
Steven Burchett has come to love living here on Olive St.
“Never had any problems- never any trouble, Burchett said.”
On Sunday morning he went to get his paper, he made a surprising discovery.
“I found the note in the front yard. And it was from the Klan,” he stated. “I was furious. I was furious.”
The notice bore the name of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.
Complete with the image of a hooded figure, the flyer attempts to recruit people for a so-called neighborhood watch program. It asks, “Are there troubles in your neighborhood? Contact the…Klan today.”
