A Michigan Michigan police officer was taken on administrative leave after a prospective homebuyer allegedly found a framed application to the Ku Klux Klan, along with Confederate flags, when he visited the policeman's home.
Rob Mathis, who is black, and his wife traveled to the house of Muskegon with the prospect of buying it when they allegedly found the racist utensils hanging on the wall.
If only the Confederate flags had existed, Rob would have considered buying the house anyway. But the additional finding of a KKK application has completely stopped him, he said.
"In the bedroom, just opposite … there was a memorial plaque up there, all by itself," Mathis told Fox 17. "So I left because I was curious over there, and it was an application for the KKK. I said, "Oh no." I said to my son, "Do not touch."
Rob said he went outside to try and calm down while waiting for his wife.
"I am outside. I'm trying to calm down because I've touched those doorknobs, "Mathis said. "I'm just sick because I'm in this house right now."
Mathis has posted the ordeal on Facebook. Frank Peterson, the manager of Muskegon City, identified the policeman as Charles Anderson, who has been in action for 20 years. Take this kind of problem seriously, and we work hard to understand if / how it affects our ability Monitor community safely and fairly, "Peterson said in an email to Fox 17.
Mathis said Anderson should work his losing because there is no way to oversee the public if someone is racist. Muskegon is a very diverse community.
