It doesn't have to be perfect - I can clean it up and photoshop Mark Green in later.

Meet your local Ku Klux Klan representatives.
Terry Lee has bragged a dozen times of being in the Klan in my earshot. He has been a janitor at several of the bars. He's been a regular at Jerry's, Rick & Oles, Yesterdays, Wiggies, Locker Room, White House and so on.
Jim 'Spoon' Evans had a problem about twelve years ago when his kid wore daddy's "Invisible Empire KKK" shirt to Marquette Middle School. Remember when the Klan lit showed up in the racks at the Union Corner's Kohls store? He lived nearby on the dead-end of dayton, just east of Sixth. He was a bartender at Yesterday's, about the time the owner lost the joint to Scoop and a gambling habit. (Newbies, it's now the Inferno) Spoon was more recently tending at Haggerty's, which beached in a flurry of weasel dust and metro narks. Spoon has tended at a string of failed bars and is remembered at the Williy Bear with out-of-town klansmen.
Ben Scalisi is second-generation Klan. His daddy used to harrass Asians on the East side. A woman security guard told me how the local Klan used to attack her dad. (Her boyfriend shot her a few years ago, RIP sister.) Ben Scalisi tried to get a list of Asians in university housing, back in the early ninties. He asked cab drivers. We were creeped out. <snip>
The Klan is more than a racist group. They aren't generally conversant in economics, but they have strong opinions on social issues. They are violently anti-abortion, anti-gay, anti-civil rights for anyone, and pro-gun. There is an odd tendency to use the Soviet flag as a symbol of insult.
Friends in the Sherman Park area have told me the neighborhood association there is a bit closed and secretive. Invites get delivered after the actual meeting and they talk in code a lot about the problem of having Black people living so close. That is the support group for Dorothy Bouchard and Mike Welling. There's your prototypical white citizen's council.
The loitering law proposal is absolutely designed to enable the cops to mess with Black people. It's racist in intent and application.
That's why the Loitering Law is going to be an issue at the anti-fascist rally on the 26th.
