A confidential FBI report reportedly links two Fruitland Park, Florida police officers to the Ku Klux Klan — one of whom was, until recently, the local police department’s deputy chief. Deputy Chief David Borst resigned his office shortly after the FBI provided a copy of the report to police Chief Terry Issacs. Borst also served as the city’s fire chief, although he’s resigned that post as well.
