FARMLAND, Ind. (AP) — Police in rural eastern Indiana say some people have called to complain after finding Ku Klux Klan recruiting leaflets on their driveways.
Farmland Town Marshal Melvin Nott says they called after finding the leaflets in recent days and were upset that propaganda was delivered to their property. However, Nott says the leaflets are protected free speech.
Farmland assistant clerk-treasurer Tracy Garner tells The Star Press the leaflets were found all around the town about 60 miles east of Indianapolis, just as had happened two months ago in nearby Winchester.
The leaflets were in blue plastic bags weighted down with small rocks, just like in Winchester. The fliers in both communities promoted the Traditionalist American Knights of the KKK. They included a telephone number and website address.
