KKK Recruiting in Tri-State?

Here in the tri-state we've come to associate the Ku Klux Klan with Fountain Square crosses at Christmas-time. But one local family found the KKK's hatred spewing right at their own front door.

James and Olivia Hundley moved to the outskirts of Bethel, expecting to settle in to a quiet, church-filled community where they could raise their six kids in peace. They did not expect to find hatred dropped on their doorstep. Olivia Hundley says,"this is something I would expect to tell my children that their ancestors experienced. Nothing that they would have to actually experience themselves."

Ku Klux Klan fliers started circulating in their neighborhood about a year ago, casting an inescapable fear on the Hundleys' every day. Olivia leaves for work wondering if her husband or one of her children will be hurt, and she's homeschooling one of her daughters to make sure the young girl is safe. 

The Hundleys do not believe the fliers are coming from any of their neighbors. One woman who lives a few doors down tells Fox 19 she was shocked and angered when she found the fliers on her lawn, especially since the literature was placed where it could easily be found by children.

Clermont County Sheriffs confirm that KKK fliers have been posted throughout the area - some of it aimed at recruitment. But, they say, posting the fliers is not illegal. If you find them offensive, Sheriffs suggest simply getting rid of the literature, or, if it's posted at a business, sharing your concerns with the owner.
