Ku Klux Klan Raising Money For Officer That Shot Michael Brown

Ku Klux Klan (KKK) meeting, South Carolina, 1951. ? Heirs of W. Eugene Smith

The hate groups have come out to play.

On top of the explosive environment in Ferguson, a Missouri Ku Klux Klan chapter has now come to Ferguson in an attempt to exploit the death of Michael Brown for their own agenda.

The chapter claims they are there to raise money to support the police officer who shot Michael Brown.

The Southern Poverty Law Center Hatewatch Blog reported:

?The South Carolina-based New Empire Knights of the Ku Klux Klan says its Missouri chapter is raising money for the still unidentified white police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown??

This was confirmed in an email from the Klan chapter.

?We are setting up a reward/fund for the police officer who shot this thug? He is a hero! We need more white cops who are anti-Zog and willing to put Jewish controlled black thugs in their place??

Along with this email, the chapter’s blog was quoted by the SPLC as saying this:

?We know that Michael Brown was nothing more than a punk. The media and others are painting him out to be a ?good son? and ?great kid.? The blacks of Missouri are showing their love of him by rioting, attacking, and shooting people. Nothing new.?

This is in response to the fatal shooting of unarmed Michael Brown by a police officer. The community of Ferguson has been protesting for several days and nights in response as police officers fire tear gas, pepper spray, and rubber bullets.

The hactivist group Anonymous has released a name and photograph?of the police officer they claim is the previously unidentified officer. Their Twitter account has since been deactivated.
