(Christian Post) The Ku Klux Klan has begun initiatives to start “neighborhood watch” programs across the nation.

The groups’ decision to start a neighborhood watch program comes less than a month after neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman was found “not guilty” of murdering Trayvon Martin. Early efforts to recruit members for a watch program began in Springfield, Mo. where local resident received flyers from the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.

The flyers depict a man wearing a traditional Klan hood and logo, pointing a finger. The flyer promotes a “neighborhood watch” program with the phrase: “You can sleep tonight knowing the Klan is awake.” Below the quote a number is provided encouraged those with “troubles” in the neighborhood to contact the Klan.
