KKK Fliers Circulating Around Sioux Falls
SIOUX FALLS, S.D.-Ku Klux Klan pamphlets are circulating around Sioux Falls. They showed up a couple weeks ago and many residents have posted to Facebook about their concerns after finding them. Sioux Falls Police say they’ve also received several reports of these pamphlets.
The papers are for the Loyal White Knights Of The Ku Klux Klan. Inside is info about the KKK and how people can join or donate. There’s also a contact number for the groups main location in North Carolina. Some also list a local number.
The pamphlets have been found on the ground all over town, on the north eastern side, the south eastern and downtown. The papers are in a bag with something to weigh it down like candy or rocks. Police say while this may seem concerning, it’s something that’s happening all across the country.
“I know it’s very alarming for people to see that type of material, but we’ve been working with the FBI and notifying them, working with the state just to keep people informed, but we haven’t had anything other than those fliers being distributed, no threats, no other information has come in,” said Officer Sam Clemens with the Sioux Falls Police Department.
Sioux Falls Police do not know who exactly is distributing these fliers but say what they are doing is not illegal. They do not seem to be threatening certain groups of people or inciting violence in any way. If anything it could be city ordinance violation for littering.
