There is no possible way to earn the money that has been spent on security back from the Ku Klux Klan. Safety measures are also important and our world has come far in these aspects. Money is important and monetary value is given around to things. But, the safety of people is also very important and can not be ignored at any cost. These kind of expenses are definitely heavy on the state’s budget but they are necessary. Nothing is more important than lives. Dickstein believes that security for such rallies is very important.
Who are the Ku Klux Klan?
The Ku Klux Klan, usually called the KKK or the Klan, is an American racial oppressor hate group. The Klan has existed in three particular points at various focuses in time amid the historical backdrop of the United States. Every klan upheld fanatic rigid positions, for example, white patriotism, unfriendly to movement and—particularly in later repeats—Nordicism and against Catholicism.
Generally, the Klan utilized fear based abuse—both physical strike and murder—against gatherings or people whom they opposed.
Ohio: What happened at the rally?
There were no problems at the rally. The rally happened downtown. There were no sightings of any clashes nor any reports. Large trucks blocked the streets of the city.
Officers from neighboring cities came. Maintenance of peace was present. It was an event with no casualties. It hurt no one. That was the main goal for so much security.
Ku Klux Klan received the permit for the rally months ago.
