Pulaski homeowners find offensive materials from the KKK

SOMERSET, Ky. (WKYT) - Sherilyn Hyden didn’t know what was left at the end of her driveway Sunday, until we showed it to her.

“Think that’s crazy. Not going to join it,” she said.

It was a paper weighed down with rocks inside a sandwich bag. The paper had a phone number and a web address for the “Loyal White Knights” of the Ku Klux Klan along with the phrase, “Save our land, join the Klan.”

Police say they received complaints all over Pulaski County. The papers appear to be from the KKK and were left in driveways the day before Martin Luther King, Junior Day.

The paper Carolyn Jasper received specifically targeted the slain civil rights leader with language to offensive too show.

“Well I hope they have a change of heart. We are supposed to love everybody. Every color. Prejudice is wrong, not for us to judge,” said Jasper.

People we spoke with say all the papers were found Sunday morning and police think they were left late Saturday night while many were sleeping.

“They’re chickens. If you want to come out and play games, let the people see your face,” said Jasper.

The paper contains a web address, post office box and phone numbers from North Carolina.
