VIDEO: Overflowing Freeport Community Meeting About KKK Flyers Turns Into Emotional Singalong
A meeting scheduled to discuss the appearance of KKK flyers in Freeport turned into an emotional singalong when more people showed up than could fit inside the community center.
Maine State Representative Ryan Fecteau, a Democrat from Biddeford, caught the overflow crowd on camera Tuesday night. The Freeport Community Center was at capacity, and the people outside in the parking lot broke out into "This Little Light of Mine."
KKK flyers and information were placed in the driveways of several residences in Freeport and Augusta on Monday evening. The community's response to what many are calling hatespeech has been unified and strong.
