Paul M. Winter of Shavertown Penn. was a regional Ku Klux Klan leader and the author of What Price Tolerance? Winter led a peaceful Klan parade in Jamaica, Long Island on Memorial Day May 30, 1927. According to Klansmen and a grand jury, the police attacked the marchers and disrupted the parade.[1] [2] The next day, the Klan--at the time a fiercely Protestant organization--posted fliers in the neighborhood charging they were attacked by the "Roman Catholic" police force.

Interestingly one of the people arrested in the New York Klansman-police brawl was Fred Trump the father of presidential candidate Donald Trump.[3] It is not known if Fred Trump was associated with the 1920s Ku Klux Klan. At the time of the incident he was arrested and later released without charges.
