He won’t be making the KKK threats anymore.
A 28-year-old African-American man has been charged with sending threats signed from the KKK to officials in the southern Illinois community of O’Fallon. Federal prosecutors say a grand jury has indicted Justin Lamar Kidd of two counts of maliciously conveying a false threat. Officials allege Kidd is behind two November 2006 letters to the O’Fallon Police Department and City Hall. Both are signed “KKK warning.” The police letter warns that an apartment complex would be burned down if “all the blacks” aren’t removed.
The Belleville News Democrat has more on the threats.
Kidd allegedly mailed the following letter to the O’Fallon Police Department on Nov. 9, 2006: “Get all the blacks from Chevy Chase Apartments from out of O’Fallon before we burn the [w]hole complex down. KKK warning.” That was followed by the following letter mailed to O’Fallon City Hall on Nov. 18, 2006: “Get all the blacks out of O’Fallon before we start burning the[ir] houses down. KKK warning.”
