Flyers in Montana investigated as possible hate crime

Police in Havre, Montana, are seeking information about fliers distributed around the city late Sunday night and early Monday morning.

The Great Falls Tribune reports that the fliers show a flag drawn upside down and "foul" language directed towards soldiers and whites. "Get the **** off our land," the fliers reportedly state. Police are investigating the fliers as a possible hate crime.

The incident comes as Havre grapples with race relations. The nearby Chippewa Cree Tribe and local leaders met last month in the wake of a student journalism report that described discrimination faced by Indians in the city.
