South Carolina’s New Empire Knights of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) are raising money as a reward for the officer that shot and killed the unarmed teenager, Michael Brown, in Ferguson, MO last weekend.

According to a report from the Southern Poverty Law Center, the KKK announced via email that:

“We are setting up a reward/fund for the police officer who shot this thug. He is a hero! We need more white cops who are anti-Zog and willing to put Jewish controlled black thugs in their place. Most cops are cowards and do nothing while 90% of interracial crime is black (and non-white) on white.”

Tensions in Ferguson are high and these actions from the KKK do little to help sate the escalating situation. But what more could be expected from the hate-based group?

According to Rawstory, an Arizona Klan chapter went on the record as saying:

“We know that Michael Brown was nothing more than a punk. The media and others are painting him out to be a ‘good son’ and ‘great kid.’ The blacks of Missouri are showing their love of him by rioting, attacking and shooting people. Nothing new.”

Ferguson police have not released the name of the officer that the KKK claims to be holding up so highly and venerating.
