One of the most disturbing cases to hit this week's crime blotter. Eight Ku Klux Klan members, including a father and son, are behind bars after killing a woman during an initiation ritual in remote Louisiana.
Police say the Tulsa, Oklahoma was recruited over the Internet by the Sons of Dixie Brotherhood chapter of the KKK. The would-be-Klanswoman was shot to death at a remote campsite near St. Tammany after a fight broke out. Oh, and the killers win this week's Stupidest Criminal Award:
"What was odd about this was the extent they went to cover it up," Strain said. "To the degree they scrubbed the area was pretty impressive for a group with such a small IQ."
Strain said the crime was discovered after two people went into the Circle K store on Louisiana Highway 21 near Bogalusa about 4 a.m. Monday and asked how to get blood out of clothing. The clerk called the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office, and that department initiated an investigation.
Guess this incident will probably hurt next year's recruitment quotas.
Recent months have seen a resurgence of Klan activity. A black gay Kansas couple was sent death threats, Missouri parents dressed children in hooded robes for Halloween, and, not surprisingly, a Michigan Republican strategist wore his KKK robes to protest the election of President-Elect Barack Obama.
