People in Klan robes pledged support to New England Police Benevolent Association, which says it was baffled by the protest
The New England Police Benevolent Association would like to set the record straight about a pro-Donald Trump demonstration by people in Ku Klux Klan robe: They police group had nothing to do with it.
During Tuesday’s Republican presidential balloting in Nevada, people turned up in Klan robes pledging support for Trump. One bore a sign that read: “The New England Police Benevolent Association support Trump! We support them!”
“I can assure you of one thing: we don’t have any members that are members of the Ku Klux Klan,” the group’s executive director, Jerry Flynn, told TheWrap on Monday.
Tony Archinski, the NEPBA’s director of administration, told TheWrap on Wednesday that the group was as baffled by the protest as everyone else.
