The Florida town of Fruitland Park has been shaken by the news that two police officers are Ku Klux Klan members.
Police Chief Terry Isaacs received an FBI report that named Deputy Chief David Borst and Officer George Hunnewell as KKK members.
"It's a tough situation. He was my assistant," Chief Isaacs said of former Deputy Chief Borst. "But I've read the report, and it's convincing."
Isaacs would not confirm that the report named the KKK, but the Orlando Sentinel received independent confirmation from Florida's Chief Deputy State Attorney Ric Ridgway, who named the KKK as the hate group discussed in the FBI report.
Deputy Chief Borst has now resigned, and Officer George Hunnewell was fired by Isaacs last week. The town has only 13 officers, so the sudden loss of two cops presents a major challenge.
Shockingly, the town's police force has already lost one member to the KKK. In 2009, Fruitland Park officer James Elkins resigned after photos surfaced of him wearing a white KKK robe and hood. He admitted to being the local recruiter for the KKK.
