Anti-Semitic Fliers Hit Petworth

Dear PoPville,

My wife and I were walking back from lunch on Monday afternoon, on Allison between 13th and Georgia, when we noticed that there were fliers on every step. Out of curiosity, I picked one up, only to find that it was essentially hate-speech claiming that Jewish people were planing genocide against Americans. The pamphlets were written by Peter J. Cojanis. I looked him up on Google and found that he has done this before in the Metro area. I was wondering what residents can do?

Do the police have any say over the matter, or are unsolicited pamphlets protected by the 1st Amendment? Is there anyone else we should contact? Usually, I wouldn’t make such a big deal about this, but the pamphlets seemed very menacing and ugly. Personally, I would like to try to keep it out of our neighborhood. Any advice is appreciated.

Ed. Note: In Dec. 2011 anti-semitic fliers hit Cleveland Park.
