Homeowners find letters from the KKK

SOMERSET, Ky. (WKYT/WVLT) - Some people living in Pulaski County, Kentucky woke up Sunday morning to messages from the KKK lying in their driveway.

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.

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

All the papers were reportdly found Sunday morning but 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 phone numbers, a web address, and a post from North Carolina.
