Klan trial this week

Klan trial this week
Nov. 10, 2008
Dear James,
I’m writing to you from Brandenburg, Kentucky, where I’ll be going to
court Wednesday against the leader of Imperial Klans of America (IKA)
to win justice for a teenage boy who was brutally beaten by IKA
members.
Led by Imperial Wizard Ron Edwards, the IKA is one of the largest and
most dangerous Klan organizations in the country. Each year, Edwards
hosts a "white-power" rally at his compound, where he indoctrinates
followers in hate and violence through speeches, music and the
display of violent, racist imagery. They even bring little children
to this festival of hate.
You may recall that our client, Jordan Gruver, was attacked by
Klansmen who had attended one of Edwards’ white-power rallies and
were recruiting for the IKA at a county fair. They thought Jordan
was, in their words, an "illegal spic." Jordan, who’s a U.S. citizen,
suffered serious injuries, including a broken jaw.
I wish you could be in the courtroom with us, but it’s not wise.
We’ve received numerous threats since we filed the suit.
I’m deeply grateful to you for helping us seek justice for Jordan
and, hopefully, put these hate-mongers out of business.
SPLC President Richard Cohen, who is here with me, will be updating
you on our progress throughout the trial.
Sincerely,
Morris Dees
