N. Idaho Hate Group Says MLK Bomb Suspect Acted As 'Lone Wolf'

HAYDEN, Idaho - Members of the White Knights of the KKK in Hayden, Idaho say the suspect arrested in connection to the bomb found along the MLK parade route in Spokane is not affiliated with their group.

Shaun Winkler, the Imperial Wizard of the White Knights, says they have never heard of Kevin Harpham, and he most likely acted as a "lone wolf." Winkler says the White Knights do not encourage violence because it is counter-productive to the propaganda they spread. He says Harpham is individually choosing to act on his own beliefs.

"There are many aspects to the white supremacist movement," said Shaun Winkler, Imperial Wizard of the White Knights of the KKK. "There are those of us that are on the political side, and there are those of us that are revolutionary. It sounds as if this individual was on the revolutionary end rather than the political. And there are a lot of lone wolves out there. People that are sympathetic to us, but people that we don't know."

Winkler says the FBI has been in communication with his group to see if they have heard any information regarding the case. The FBI in Coeur d'Alene say they won't comment on whether they are investigating a connection between Harpham and the White Knights, but say they are working with the FBI in Washington and would look into any possible connections if that was a lead in the investigation.
