The extremist group, Ku Klux Klan (KKK) wins a court case over the state. The Supreme Court in Georgia ruled in favor of the KKK group.
A report by CNN states that a unanimous pronouncement was made on Tuesday by the Georgia Supreme Court to allow the Ku Klux Klan group’s (KKK) lawsuit to take on a highway can persist.
In the ruling, the justices dismissed the appeal of the Georgian Department of Transportation’ lower court’s ruling because the state failed to follow the correct filing procedures.
This has been an ongoing battle between the Ku Klux Klan group and the state. It began in May 2012 when the International Keystone Knights of the KKK made an application to the transportation department to partake in the Adopt-A-Highway program. The group sought to take on a one-mile portion of State Route 515 in Union County.
As per the offer of the program, the KKK group was to pick trash along the stretch of the highway and in turn, the transportation department would position the group’s name on a sign along the roadway. This was an intended move by the group to create awareness.
Conversely, the transportation department of Georgia declined to that part of the program, knowing the adverse effect it may cause in the state and country at large. The publication of an extremist group on a state highway was a sure recipe for disaster.
In a fight back, the KKK group sued the state with backing from the American Civil Liberties Union, for infringing on their free speech right.
It is quite clear this hate group seeks to attain in their involvement in this legal battle. The group’s ability to attaining some state properties gradually furnishes them with the necessary supremacy to execute their diabolic plans.
Hence, the entire inhabitants of Georgia State ought to actively participate in the move to prevent the group from taking ownership of any state property!
Meanwhile, the Georgian State deferred the Adopt-A-Highway program four years back following the hullabaloo that surfaced.
