A natural outgrowth of the whole Zimmerman affair. I suspect they will see that verdict as a license to kill.

I would not take this any more seriously than a flier that read: "Trouble in the neighborhood? Call The Legion of Doom. We're here for you!"

Who cares if morons send out fliers. Why give the idiots press? They print up a few pages and you turn it into a multi-million dollar advertising campaign? Dumb.

Learn the law so it doesn't sound like you have no clue. A standard self defense case, based on law that exists everywhere in the country and the free world is hardly a license to kill.

I wouldn't want to be black in that neighborhood. What a mess.

It occurs to me that the boys in the hood of any variety, are not a good idea
to have prowling around the neighborhood.
So, If I printed a flier claiming to be the leader of the Legion of Doom Neighborhood Watch, would you take it seriously? Would you make a thread? It looks like it's pretty easy to get famous around here, when people make a big deal out of any asshole that prints something.

Well, without wishing to delve into the entire Zimmerman affair again, let me state the obvious. When two men have a confrontation and the one who is unarmed winds up dead, the only one left to tell his side of the story is the shooter. If I was black, I'd think very carefully before I walked in any white neighborhood where the KKK was providing neighborhood watch. But maybe that's just me.

And whatever else it was, it was hardly a 'standard self-defense case'. Except maybe in the South.

Spare us your paranoid delusion based on a pathetic understanding of the law, or at least keep it to the Zimmerman subforum.

Thanks.

I don't see where this has anything at all to do with the Zimmerman case. An old racist org has some community service arms that they say aren't racist themed. Whether they are or not (and they're likely to be) doesn't matter. Anything they do is fruit from a very poisonous tree.

My my! such a nasty response! I guess hunting black kids and killing them when they respond now qualifies as self-defense in your world. Good to know the KKK is not alone in their efforts.

Yeah, I can't imagine anything with ties to the KKK being racist!:lamo

And I fully understand the abominable 'stand your ground law'.

You know you've gone far afield when you respond to your own posts. :lamo
I'm still interested in your assertion that a part of the KKK may not be racist. Surely, this belongs in the breaking news section.

You may want to brush up on your reading comprehension and read my post again. :lamo

Why would they not see it that way?

not sure of the laws surrounding neighborhood watch programs, but I imagine they have a constitutional right to organize them

Not sure how it couldn't be racist though, considering the values of the org. But then again, organizations like the NOI tend to be very active in black communities on a similar level. And as much as I despise the org, they do a phenomenal job at pushing out the drug dealers, pimps, and general human garbage

The NOI is notorious in their efficiency in cleaning up ghettos

Given the organizations "standing" on how they look at race it's hard not to see it as racist, but the actual comments from them are not racist in themselves. How they actually ACT is another story.

Just giving another perspective.
While Klan representative Frank Ancona said he didn’t know whether the fliers were distributed as part of an organized effort by the group (as opposed to, y’know, invisible, magical racist elves)
Though I rather dislike the klan, this bit of commentary is rather strange and just highlights what is wrong with much of the alternative "news" content on the internet.

Maybe "magical racist elves" is the KKK's name for the lower ranking members.
