KKK flyers left on Westmoreland lawns

Veronica Mosher was shocked by what she found on her lawn Thursday morning. "I opened a Ziploc bag with little rock in it and a piece of paper," said Mosher. "It was disturbing. It talked about the KKK, white people sticking together and Hispanics and blacks taking all the jobs."

Veronica Mosher was shocked by what she found on her lawn Thursday morning.

"I opened a Ziploc bag with little rock in it and a piece of paper," said Mosher. "It was disturbing. It talked about the KKK, white people sticking together and Hispanics and blacks taking all the jobs."

The flyer directed the reader to a website.

"I went to the website and it talked about white Christians uniting and I thought that's an awful front, because I'm Christian and I don't agree with the KKK and what they stand for," said Mosher.

Mosher and around five of her neighbors in Westmoreland's Camelot Village received the flyers, in plastic baggies, on their lawns Thursday morning. One was concerned and called the Oneida County Sheriff's Department.

"Obviously from our initial findings, there's obviously no crime committed here because basically it's freedom of speech," said Sheriff Robert Maciol. "Just want to make sure they're being distributed appropriately. And those folks who are offended by them, my only suggestion to them would be to discard them"
