Police on Long Island have launched an investigation after Ku Klux Klan fliers were found on cars in Patchogue early Thursday morning.

The fliers, found at 2 a.m. on parked cars off of a main road, had a picture of a white-robed Klan member and read, “Our race is our nation.” Suffolk Police Commissioner Timothy Sini says that while these fliers are protected under the First Amendment, his department will still investigate the incident.
