'White Power' Taunts Anger Neighbor

A Hayden man who was tired of hearing his neighbors yelling "white power" was told by a Kootenai County sheriff's deputy to allow the law to handle disturbing-the-peace situations rather than to try to do something himself. Shealyn Marie Winkler, 25, of 9656 Hillview Drive, called the sheriff's office after Scot Lee Fuhrman, 41, allegedly hollered an expletive at her and Shaun Patrick Winkler, 31, Friday night. Shaun Winkler and other area supremacists picketed two Mexican food stands last week. Fuhrman told a deputy that the Winklers regularly yell "white power" and try to run the neighborhood. When they returned home  around 10 p.m. Friday and yelled "white power," he shouted back to discourage them from continuing. Shealyn Winkler called the sheriff's office because she said she was afraid the situation would escalate.
