West Valley City police on Tuesday were investigating a report of a Ku Klux Klan recruitment letter found in the faculty mailbox of a black teacher at Granger High School.

The teacher found the letter last week, said Capt. Steve Sandquist.

The letter includes some racist language and is basically a recruitment letter, Sandquist said, but there was no threat associated with the letter.

"I don't see a crime," Sandquist said.

But Ron Stallworth, chairman of the Black Advisory Council, said the incident constitutes a hate crime.

"We have a difference of opinion," said Stallworth, who is also a state police officer.

Stallworth praised school officials for their swift attention and for planning a faculty meeting on the issue.
