Racist Flyers Filled With Threats and Hate Posted Around Richland
There's a snappy tune from back in the day by a Canadian band, the Five Man Electrical Band, later covered by Tesla, called, "Signs."
Signs, signs everywhere a sign, blocking out the scenery, breaking my mind, do this, don't do that, long haired freaky people need not apply, you have to have a shirt and tie to get a seat, anyone caught trespassing will be shot on sight, can't you read the signs, etc.?
Well, signs, signs, everywhere signs posted in Richland on utility poles and elsewhere full of hostility that say in part:
"The Left Are Your ENEMIES. We see your little signs, we hear your chants and your support for those who want to see America destroyed, her culture defiled, her history erased and her people killed or replaced. You are TRAITORS. Consider yourself ON WATCH. The War is On. WE SEE YOU. LEAVE NOW. You are NO LONGER WELCOME."
There is currently a $700 reward for the capture of the individual(s) responsible for these fliers being stapled at locations in the city of Richland. So far, the posts have been spotted near Swift Blvd. and Highway 240 and near Cedar Avenue and Hartford Street. Richland Police are now investigating. Those two locations are the only official instances of fliers posted, but a Richland resident let RPD know a total of seven fliers were spotted while out walking. Home security cameras or Ring doorbell systems in the neighborhoods where the fliers were spotted might be good places to start a review while canvassing for clues.
There have been two peaceful Black Lives Matter protest rallies so far along George Washington Way in Richland, calling attention to racial injustice and police brutality.
