Olivia Land, New York Post, November 2, 2022

An attempt by some Ohio sheriff’s officers to dress their horses up like “ghosts” for Halloween became more trick than treat for the department, when some residents complained they looked like the “Ku Klux Klan.”


“The riders thought what a great idea to have big ghosts going down the street,” Sheriff Frank Leonbruno told FOX 8. {snip}

“As the horses went down the street they were lit up for Halloween. To tell you the truth the community loved it, kids said they were great ghost horses,” Sheriff Leonbruno said.

Once pictures of the costumes went up on Facebook, however, some residents were quick to point out the horses’ resemblance to how the KKK dressed their horses to match their own infamous white hoods and robes.
