"The IQ level of this group is not impressive, to be kind..."

Figures. I'm sure you will find this to be true for most KKK members. I'm sorry what happened to this woman, but when you hang with criminals...

These people for years have been known as cowards. It seems right that their headgear resembles dunce caps!!! Real men (and women) stand up and show their faces!!! EVOLVE!!!

"I can't imagine anyone feeling endangered or at risk by any one of these kooks," Strain said.

Um, they shot and killed a woman--one of their own! I'm afraid of them from here. Yeah, they're all idiot crack feinds. We get that. It doesn't make them harmless. I think they could find more severe charges to pursue.

Why do they still exist. They exterminated Nazi Germany. It can be done!

There are parts of this country that deeply concern me. Makes me wonder if it's 1968 or really 2008?

Interesting, many noted but few commented. If you've been struck by how to respond to the fact that this is behaviour that is, apparently, still alive and well, uh, ya. Don't hear much of this in my neck of the woods, but to be aware that it is still going on is important. Vigilance.

Just as soon as you think we are getting past this kind of crap here it cames again. Still I have hope that things are getting better. These hate groups can't last forever as long as people stand up against them.

The KKK has never been wiped out, and is now growing again in some parts of the country. They are not harmless, they kill people, and they are very much around.

Sick and twisted. They could be suffering from something worse than mad cow disease. It is so sad that a group of people can be so filled with hate that they hide under sheets and attack fellow mankind that they disagree with. Love one another and stop the hate.

Would someone please explain to me how we have come so far as a nation, yet still have the most backwoods redneck dingalings running around wreaking havoc in sheets??? This stuff is beyond ridiculous. Why can't we put a stop to this?

If she went voluntarily, I don't pity her death...

'people' that belong to kkk are ignorant, little, frustrated 'humans'. They are scared of anything beyond their little white neighbourhoods and farms!

I believe there's too much freedom in the USA.
All the kkk members (and others alike) should be tracked down and put in prison. Then they should be forced to do hard labour for a very long time while being educated and should only be allowed to eat vegetables.

Also it's about time all prisoners start working instead of lying around doing nothing all day long, while the rest of us outside are struggling to make a living!!

One's rights end when one attempts against another person's rights!!
Eye for an eye! Enough of so much tolerance towards human scum!!!

"This is not what I would call an established Klan group," he said. "The Klan has a pretty high association with violence. Some of these guys are just crooks, sociopaths."
But the sheriff said the public shouldn't feel endangered.
"I can't imagine anyone feeling endangered or at risk by any one of these kooks," Strain said."

The police & Homeland Security are Idiots AND racists if they deny anyone aspiring to be KKK are NOT Dangerous Terrorists!
1) Crooks & sociopaths ARE terrorists - the Stupider the More Likely to be dangerous.
2) They KILLED someone who probably didn't feel Endangered either!
3) HOW "established" in the Klan do you have to be to be considered a Terrorist by Homeland Security???
