Numerous residents of a neighborhood in northwest Harris County, Texas found flyers bearing white supremacist slogans and swastikas on their lawns.
ABC13 reported that Ziploc bags were filled with racist flyers with various messages and two rocks. These stones could be used to prop the bag up to the ground.
ABC13 obtained exclusive footage of a local resident showing a person in the backseat of a moving vehicle to show that they were throwing something. A resident claimed they found a flyer at the same spot.
“I was quite disturbed because of the symbolism,”Estelle Monroe, a resident of the area, shared her story with the news station. “Historically, it’s about hate.”
Residents of the area offered to remove the flyers so that children wouldn’t see them.
“I picked up about 45 (flyers),”Kelsey Sanders, a resident of the area, spoke to ABC13. “The minority is the majority in this neighborhood. My fear is whenever the kids started to get up and play outside because it’s summer, that they find this on the sidewalk. That is completely disgusting to have a child look at this. I am proud to say everyone was on the same page, picking them up quickly and getting them in the trash.”
Inside Edition was told by Thomas M Gilliland, Senior Deputy. He said that flyers were turned in to the Harris County Sheriff Office Criminal Intel Unit. The investigation is ongoing as of June 9. “The Harris County District Attorney’s Office will be consulted to see what charge if applicable would be accepted by them.”
