MISSOULA, Mont. — Just blocks away from the Missoula police station, some residents found another round of anti-Semitic flyers on their doorsteps Friday morning.
Crystal Koosman was one of them. She said her husband found it on their doorstep around 6:30 a.m.
The flyer references Jews, featuring a photo of President Donald Trump and the flag of Israel. It demeans people who believe in the protection of Israel.
This follows two other instances NBC Montana has reported of anti-Semitic flyers being distributed around Missoula in the past week.
It hits home for Koosman, who is Jewish and a member of Har Shalom.
“I didn't know if it was going after specific people in the community,” Koosman told NBC Montana.
She was relieved to find out that wasn’t the case. “I went outside, and some of my neighbors were outside chatting, and found out that they were all up and down the block,” said Koosman.
Missoula Police Public Information Officer Travis Welsh said he hadn’t heard any reports of the flyers found on Friday.
Welsh emphasized that handing them out doesn’t violate Montana state law. Koosman understands that concept pretty well.
"It’s protected under the First Amendment, because it doesn't make a direct threat,” explained Koosman.”It sort of falls under the same category as dropping political leaflets, but I still think it's important to keep track of it in case it does escalate."
The Missoula Police Department says to let them know if you have any information or video related to these incidents.
