Klan demonstration ends with no arrests or ejections
By Derreck Booth Editor

BLAIRSVILLE - A spokesman for the Union County Sheriff's Office said a public demonstration by the Ku Klux Klan Saturday ended with no arrests or ejections from the event.

Under a permit obtained from the city of Blairsville, the International Keystone Knights of the KKK gathered at the Union County Courthouse.

Public Information Officer and Investigator for the Union County Sheriff's Office, C.J. Worden, said he estimated between 15 and 20 people there representing the KKK. He said a conservative estimate for the total crowd was about 350.

"There were a few people there that seemed to support the KKK both with posters and their gestures and words. I think there were more people there that were against the KKK," Worden said.

He said one church sponsored a group that held a silent protest.

"I think the majority of the people that were present were simply there to observe. This is nothing like anything that's ever happened in Blairsville before," Worden said.

As far as problems, Worden said there were only a couple of what he described as minor incidents involving unruly protestors.

"Nobody was ejected and nobody was arrested."

On behalf of the sheriff's office, Worden thanked the Blairsville Police Department, Union County Fire Department and Georgia State Patrol.

"And any other agencies that we might have missed that assisted us in making sure that everybody went home safely."

Last month, the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit against the state of Georgia on behalf of the Ku Klux Klan. The group tried unsuccessfully to adopt a portion of State Route 515 in Blairsville as part of the state's Adopt-a-Highway program.

The ACLU Foundation of Georgia filed the suit in Fulton County Superior Court, saying the state violated the group's right to free speech. The suit asked the court to force the state to issue an Adopt-a-Highway permit to the KKK.

The permits include a roadside sign along the right-of-way that's adopted.

Biggest waste of manpower I have ever seen. I didn't go but I did see all the State patrolman and deputies about the courthouse 3 hours before it started. I don't know what fool came up with the plan to keep the peace but you sure made a fool of yourself. There must have been 3 law officers for every clansman

Wrong, again. While you are likely intoxicated writing on TOPIX at night, deputies are in the county alone w/o much backup. I have witnessed one deputy pulling over a drunk drivers. Near the dam, I stopped to make sure that the officer was safe because the van and driver looked suspicious. The officer did not call for backup.

Comments of this nature are false.

During storms and other incidents in UC, officers are alone in patrol cars assisting others. I have NEVER seen three patrol cars pull over a vehicle unless they were searching for drugs or were taking drivers into custody.

Officers patrol my street on a regular basis and there is one officer. I have seen them pull over vehicles w/o backup many many times in this area.

Also, had there not been adequate protection for the Klan members, they could have sued the county especially now that they have the ACLU in their pocket.

There was no way to predict what was going to happen when the Klan members came to this ALL WHITE area.

It was prudent that officers protect not only the KKK but people in the community should one person cause a distrubance or use a weapon. It kept everyone safe.

odd that there were no black people there protesting on their own behalf.....only local white church people. Then there were a lot of white LE grateful to the KKK for the overtime pay to keep those violent church people from commiting their acts of violence. Overall, a good fund raiser for LE. Crazy world.
