Martinez police are investigating the origin of racist fliers bearing the symbol of a purported White Supremacist group and threatening supporters of Black Lives Matter. The leaflets were discovered Saturday at about 9:45 p.m. on a sidewalk near downtown.
Police called the fliers, riddled with spelling errors, “Deplorable, filled with hate, and have no place in the city of Martinez. The language was threatening, offensive, and goes against everything the City values in terms of diversity, inclusion, and acceptance.”
Police urged anyone with information on the source of the fliers to contact their Dispatch Center at (925) 372-3440. The incident is currently being regarded as a hate crime and the investigation is ongoing.
