KKK fliers found on South Jersey street
CINNAMINSON — Police in South Jersey continue to investigate the discovery of several KKK flyers inside plastic sandwich bags on Sunday.
A resident walking along Forklanding Road near Lenola Road on Sunday afternoon noticed what she thought was a Valentine's Day card on the ground, according to Cinnaminson police spokesman Lt. Tim Young.
"But upon closer inspection it was a hate flier from the Ku Klux Klan. So she called police and we opened an investigation and called the attorney general's office," said Young.
Young said that three or four fliers were found all inside plastic sandwich bags.
The flier from the Loyal White Knights had "love your own race" written inside one heart and "stop homosexuality and race mixing" written inside the other. "God's laws don't forget" was also written on the flier with an invitation to "join the Klan today" with an out-of-area phone number and a website.
"It almost appears as if they were thrown out of a vehicle," Young said, and that no individual appears to have been targeted.
"At the Cinnaminson Police Department we take this very seriously. Cinnaminson as a town embraces diversity and there's no place in Cinnaminson for hate or intolerance," Young said.
Young asked anyone with information about the fliers to call Cinnaminson Police at 856-829-6666.
The New Jersey Chapter of the NAACP did not yet return messages seeking comment.
