A Ku Klux Klan chapter in Pennsylvania is forming a neighborhood watch group in response to a string of break-ins.

"You can sleep tonight knowing the Klan is awake!" read fliers promoting the neighborhood watch group in Fairview Township, according to PennLive.

The leaflets appeared on the doorsteps of homes late last week.

"It’s just like any neighborhood watch program. It’s not targeting any specific ethnicity. We would report anything we see to law enforcement," Frank Ancona, the organization’s imperial wizard and president, told PennLive. "We don’t hate people. We are an organization who looks out for our race. We believe in racial separation. God created each species after its kind and saw that it was good."

Fairview Township police Sgt. Davis Holland said police were aware of the propaganda, but would not comment further.
