Police investigate Aryan newspaper distribution
By Thomas Geyer
Davenport police are investigating who distributed a newspaper Tuesday entitled the "Aryan Alternative" around the McClellan Heights area near the Village of East Davenport.
A citizen called to complain about that publication at about 2:30 p.m., police Lt. Brent Biggs said. According to the Web site operated by VanguardNewsNetwork.com, which publishes the paper, the "Aryan Alternative" offers "uncensored news for whites."
"It wasn't directed at a specific person, they were just putting it out in the neighborhood," Biggs said. "We don't know how widespread this is, and I don't know if any law has been broken, but we are investigating."
