The cards were left at the ends of driveways and in mailboxes. They read: "For your safety, the Ku Klux Klan was watching over your neighborhood as you slept."

I dont support the KKK but i have the following questions. What if there was a closer watch on the neighborhood and the KKK was seen distributing their cards and driving around the neighborhood. What are you going to do...call the law. What are the police going to do other than pull them over and check vehicle registration and insurance? Last time i checked it was a free country and anyone could drive anywhere they wanted anytime they wanted. As long as they dont break the law they are free to do as they wish with nothing being said to them.

HonestTruth-
Yes, this is a "free" country, with "free" speech. It is a federal felony to place any item into another persons mailbox, other than the U.S. Mail. So, therefore, more could have been done if these individuals were seen in this act.

Secondly, the freedom in which you speak and they act upon came at a price from those who were courageous enough to fight for a country filled with mixed races,cultures,languages, etc. Those same people are still fighting for you and the rights of KKK members even today. They don't stand behind a robe, or do their acts in the middle of the night to not be seen. They will show their faces, and act out of the better interest for all of America, not just their own. It is quite sad, I just moved to the area and to think that in 2007, this garbage still exists. If they haven't accomplished their "tasks" by now, I don't think that organization is all too effective or needed for that matter.

Freedom of speech is taken for granted and quite frankly, abused by such organizations as the KKK. Even though they have the right of free speech and voice their opinions, it doesn't make it fact or even right.

I will agree that it is illegal to place anything in a mailbox that does not first pass through the USPS system. I was overlooking the part where the KKK placed their cards INSIDE mailboxes. No they should not have placed their cards inside the mailboxes.
But yes they did have the right to drive through any neighborhood they wished to drive through and also had the right to watch over any neighborhood they would have liked to watch over. What if members of the KKK lived in that particular neighborhood...dont they have the right to watch their neighborhood? A KKK member has the right to watch his neighborhood just as i have the right to watch my neighborhood.

If you're in the Klan you're a brainwashed drone. More racial BS to keep you scared and unaware of who the real enemy is.

Your right, if Jesse Jackson, al sharpton and all the other pro blacks are allowed to prance around talking racist garbage and they think that's ok. What's so wrong with the Klan?

Good for him, he has a right to do so if he wishes. It's not illegal to be a member of the organization.

It's not illegal to be a part of a racist organization, and you still have that right to be a part of one as a US citizen.

But the fact is, the government wants us scared and hateful of our fellow man. It's the reason Bush demonized muslims, and Hussein Obama is trying to start a race war. They want us divided so we're easier to conquer.

Thank the Dim Libs! The white population will begin to shrink and, should present birth rates persist, slowly disappear. Hispanics already comprise 42 percent of New Mexico’s population, 37 percent of California’s, 38 percent of Texas’s, and over half the population of Arizona under the age of twenty.……. Mexico is moving north. Ethnically, linguistically, and culturally, the verdict of 1848 is being overturned. Will this Mexican nation within a nation advance the goals of the Constitution—to “insure domestic tranquility” and “make us a more perfect union”? Or has our passivity in the face of this invasion imperiled our union? Wake up white people! Romney 2012!!

Is that same Fred that uses all the different names on here to always repeat crap he hears on Fox News? He claimed to be a banker.

Kkk is so lame. Owensboro is backwards enough!!!! I am surprised that with such a catholic area there would be the kkk. The Kkk hates Catholics too. Sorry, we have all the white trash here that we can handle. Take your sheets somewhere else.

The klan is nothing but a bunch of white thugs. They hate Jews, blacks, gays, Catholics, Hispanics, on and on. It is ridiculous that the klan still exist...maybe ky has too much inbreeding. Where the klan goes, so does violence.

I'm not saying I'm In the Klan, but if that's what they want to do it's their life! They are no different than Jesse Jackson and his NAACP thugs and the black panthers! Trouble follows those guys, but blacks don't seem to mind them! If the Klan wants to exist it's not a problem!
