“They see you when you’re sleeping, they know when you’re awake. They’re the Ku Klux Klan, and they’re keeping an eye on your neighborhood. Residents in Springfield, Mo., recently awoke to discover that KKK members had done their version of a mass email, wrapping neighborhood watch fliers around rocks and throwing them into yards. “You can sleep tonight knowing the Klan is awake!” the flier says, ensuring that no one in Springfield will sleep again. The Klan (whose tastefully designed “watch” website features a burning cross) says it just wants to find people who will help fight crime, but the neighbors they’re watching want none of it. “I have no use for them people,” resident Steven Burchett said. “None whatsoever.”
Ginger’s Thoughts – Thank you jurors! You all did an excellent job. Please do not seek any more minutes of fame. You made a choice that you will personally have to live with for the rest of your lives, and when another young man dies because the KKK now feels that they can commit murder and walk away NOT-GUILTY; pat yourselves on the back because you gave them the power to feel this way.
