The local NAACP and the superintendent of the Ohio State Highway Patrol plan to meet Friday morning at the Sandusky post to discuss the recent KKK incident.

Ida Alexander, the president of the Sandusky NAACP, is scheduled to meet with Col. Richard H. Collins, the patrol's superintendent.

"Everyone in the community is in an outrage," over the incident, Alexander said.

Two troopers were disciplined after one snapped a picture of the other dressed up in KKK-like garb while on duty at the post the day before Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The troopers, who said they were joking around, sent the photo to other troopers.
