20160818 KKK flyer 2Residents of Franklin, Columbus and other central Indiana communities are finding unwanted information about joining the Ku Klux Klan on their front yards.

Johnson County sheriff’s reports describe one incident where a note was enclosed in a plastic bag which also contained bird seed. A paper inside encouraged people to join the Confederate White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and included rants about second amendment rights and the taking down of Confederate symbols.

The Johnson County sheriff’s department said there does not appear to be anything illegal about the distribution of the material, but suggested people throw the papers away and feed the bird seed to the birds.
