Facebook is actively engaging in the removal of pages who dare to hold police accountable for their actions, a damning precedent, indeed.
One month ago, Facebook and Twitter — without warning or justification — deleted the pages of Free Thought Project and Police the Police which had over 5 million followers. During this purge, they also removed hundreds of other pages including massive police accountability groups like Cop Block, Filming Cops, and stifled the reach of Photography is Not a Crime. We reacted to the purge by starting new pages with the 2.0 appendix at the end of them. On Sunday, exactly one month after they wiped these pages from the internet, Facebook struck again, and again, no reason was given.
