(A few older news reports of threats to KPFA & Pacifica Foundation radio stations by the KKK - (LC) )

The KKK wanted to shut down the Pacifica Foundation years ago, according to some old reports.

At one point, Jimmy Dale Hutto, a former member of the KKK who presently resides in Pasdena, Texas, planned to blow up KPFA Radio in Berkeley, and KPFK Radio, in Los Angeles.

Jimmy Dale Hutto of Pasadena, Texas, was arrested for planning to blow up KPFA and KPFK. Hutto was convicted and sent to prison in 1971.

Presently, Jimmy Dale Hutto, around 71 years of age, resides in Pasadena, Texas, according to records with the Whitepages.
