KKK Fliers Found In Chicago Suburb

Police in Tinley Park, a suburb of Chicago, are investigating fliers promoting actions of the Ku Klux Klan that were found in several driveways throughout the town, according to NBC Chicago and the Chicago Tribune.

“You can sleep tonight knowing the Klan is awake!” the fliers said, according to the Tribune.

Police told the Tribune the distribution of the fliers -- which were accompanied by candy canes -- was a "suspicious circumstance." Authorities are investigating the group listed on the fliers, which Patch reports is the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.

Similar fliers were found in another Chicago suburb, New Lenox Township, in October. Those fliers said "Save Our Land Join The Klan" and offered a number to a Klan-run hotline with a North Carolina area code.

In November, Klan fliers that said "Our Race Is Our Nation" were found in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, a historically black neighborhood, and Rockledge, Florida.
