Negro Implicates KKK In Latest Fake Hate Crime Incident
Justin Lamar Kidd has been indicted on two counts of maliciously conveying a false threat according to a U.S. attorney in Illinois. Kidd is a 28-year-old African-American male who sent the threats and signed them as warnings from the KKK (Ku Klux Klan) - an historic white supremacy group. He sent the threats to O'Fallon, Illinois which is a southern Illinois town where Kidd formerly lived.
Kidd was found guilty of sending two letters, one to the O'Fallon Police Department and one to O'Fallon's City Hall in 2006 and signing them 'KKK warning.' The letter received by the O'Fallon Police Department threatens to burn down an apartment complex if all the blacks aren't removed from the complex. The letter received by Fallon's City Hall said that the city needed to get all of the blacks out of O'Fallon before the KKK starts burning the blacks' houses down.
The arrest of Kidd was made this past week, and he is being held in federal custody. He was ordered by a judge to have a mental evaluation. If convicted, the man could receive a prison term of up to 10 years, a $250,000 fine, and a maximum of three years of supervised release on each of the two charges.
O'Fallon, Illinois is in St.Clair County in the southern portion of Illinois, 20 miles east of St. Louis and near Scott Air Force Base. It's the third largest city in the southern part of Illinois with a population of approximately 28,000.
