Report: KKK fliers pop up along Westhampton Beach street

Residents in Westhampton Beach say they found hate-filled fliers from the KKK in their driveways.



The latest KKK fliers were left inside bags on Beach Lane driveways in Westhampton Beach on Sunday.



The flier asks people to join the Klan and says things like, "We are the invisible empire, have been for 150 years" and "We are in every state, you will not be alone anymore."



While this isn't the first time KKK fliers have appeared on the East End over the years, this time the flier makes reference to the Black Lives Matter movement in bold letters.



Westhampton Beach police say the fliers fall under Freedom of Speech so there is no crime at this time. The chief says the flier was sent to Suffolk County Police Hate Crimes for intelligence gathering.



In the past, KKK fliers have been left in Southampton, Hampton Bays, Babylon, Shirley and Wantagh.
