Lebanon residents worried by Klan cards found on streets

LEBANON, Tenn. (AP) - Residents in some Lebanon neighborhoods say they are angry and frightened after dozens of cards that purport to be from the Ku Klux Klan were left on their streets.

One side of the business-sized cards reads -- quote -- "You've been visited by the Ku Klux Klan." The other side reads -- quote -- "For your safety, the Ku Klux Klan was watching over your neighborhood as you slept."

Most of the cards were left at the end of driveways or near mailboxes.

That appears to protect the cards' distributors from any legal wrongdoing because they were not left on mailboxes or private property.

Wilson County Sheriff's Lieutenant Bob Harrison said the cards were distributed in three or four mostly white neighborhoods.

He did not know the motive for the cards but said it did not appear that any individual had been threatened.
