Racist Petition Circulates at Maryland High School
Administrators at an Anne Arundel County school in Maryland have condemned a racist petition circulated by students that encouraged classmates to join a white-supremacist movement.
The petition was written by the "Kool Kids Klan" and signed by two Arundel High School students. Administrators confiscated it this month and interviewed the students involved.
Anne Arundel County police investigated the incident and along with the state's attorney's office determined that no crime had been committed and declined to file charges.
