Per­mit for KKK rally in Rock­mart re­voked, event off at Se­born Jones

The Standard Journal - - FRONT PAGE - From Staff Re­ports

A Ku Klux Klan rally planned for Oct. 1 at Rock­mart’s Se­aborn Jones Park has been called off, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease from the Rock­mart Po­lice De­part­ment.

The re­lease stated that Chris Bailey, who orig­i­nally ap­plied for and re­ceived a per­mit for the Oc­to­ber rally for the In­ter­na­tional Keystone Knights, asked in writ­ing on Fri­day for his name to be with­drawn from the ap­pli­ca­tion al­low­ing the or­ga­ni­za­tion to hold their event.

“Mr. Bailey in­di­cated that he longer wanted his name to be as­so­ci­ated with the planned event,” the re­lease stated. “Mr. Bailey un­der­stood that, once the per­mit ap­pli­ca­tion was with­drawn, the per­mit would be re­voked, and the event would be can­celed. A copy of the writ­ten re­quest to with­draw the ap­pli­ca­tion is avail­able at Rock­mart City Hall and the Rock­mart Po­lice De­part­ment.”
