SPLC Wins $2.5 Million Verdict for Teen in Klan Case

We congratulate the Southern Poverty Law Center for a court victory in Kentucky that awarded $2.5 million to a teenager who was assaulted by Klansmen because they thought he was an "illegal spic." Like the SPLC, we hope this verdict will spell the end of the Imperial Klans of America.

The following video clip comes from CNN's "Issues" with Jane Velez-Mitchell. The show was filmed on November 13, 2008, two days before the jury ordered the IKA to pay the $2.5 million in compensatory and punitive damages.
