Police Investigating Posting of Racist Fliers

May 31, 1997

Police are investigating the posting of racist fliers in restrooms and an employee cafeteria at a Robinsons-May department store in North Hollywood.

"A hate incident report was made and we're investigating it," Det. Kevin Harley of the Los Angeles Police Department said Friday.

Some black employees who requested anonymity said they were outraged by fliers with an obscene picture that encourages the killing of blacks and includes a street address about a mile from the department store for more information.

Robinsons-May spokesman Jim Watterson said Friday that store security officers found six fliers Wednesday night and reported them to police.
