Another fake hate crime.
A black man in Illinois sent this to the local police and city hall:
“Get all the blacks from Chevy Chase Apartments from out of O’Fallon before we burn the hole(sp) complex down. KKK warning.”
Justin Kidd, A 28 year-old black man, confessed on Tuesday to sending threatening KKK emails to the local police department and city hall.
Sentencing will be held in January for a black man who admits posing as a member of the Ku Klux Klan in sending racist letters in 2006 to a police department and city hall in his former southwestern Illinois hometown of O’Fallon.
Justin Kidd, 28, pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court in East St. Louis to charges of conveying false threats in O’Fallon.

Federal prosecutors say Kidd mailed a letter to the O’Fallon Police Department in November 2006 that threatened to burn down an apartment complex if blacks were not barred from living there.
Another letter to O’Fallon City Hall a week later pledged to burn down the houses of blacks there if they weren’t purged from the city.
The Belleville News Democrat has more on the threats.
Kidd allegedly mailed the following letter to the O’Fallon Police Department on Nov. 9, 2006: “Get all the blacks from Chevy Chase Apartments from out of O’Fallon before we burn the [w]hole complex down.
