White supremacist flyers posted at several Vermont libraries

April 9, 2018

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Authorities say white supremacist flyers have been posted at several libraries in Vermont, many on college campuses.

WPTZ-TV reports flyers were found at Middlebury College, Southern Vermont College and the Rutland Free Library. The flyers quote Bible verses and include pictures of the Confederate flag.

Similar flyers were posted earlier this year at the University of Vermont and Champlain College. Police traced the flyers back to a state resident and an out-of-towner. Police said it appeared they “intended to cause strife, disruption and mistrust” on the campuses but that their actions didn’t rise to the level of criminal activity.

University of Vermont President Tom Sullivan said the university and other educational institutions around the country have recently seen “a proliferation of racist messaging.”
