should we detain people who wear the ĶĶĶ garment in the street?

    In the US, detaining someone requires "reasonable suspicion" supported by "specific and articulable facts." It's a fairly low level of proof, but it is a burden of proof that lies upon the law enforcement officer to justify detaining someone. It seems to me that if someone is wearing a KKK garment but doing nothing else suspicious, that burden of proof is not met -- not even close. So to answer your question, no.

    No, this is a case where you let street justice work... hang back let them get their bet down and step in if it gets out of hand... If somebody dies you will have to make an arrest, if he just gets a beat down you can cite him for inciting things and let the person(s) administering street justice walk.

    They have first amendment rights, too, so no, they can't be detained for wearing anything in particular, or saying what they want to.

    To my knowledge wearing an article of clothing like that is not a crime.

    As Voltaire said: "I disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

    let people walk around announcing their like and dislikes. in the mean time, there's a thing called "life".....and i'm busy living it. let the turds sit around the punch bowl pointing at each other.

    No, but the police should be slow to respond when they call for help.

    I'd rather people be more explicit about their true beliefs so no, not really.

    No, just as long as they aren't harassing anybody.
