Facebook updates standards to allow death threats against alleged sexual offenders

John Gage
Washington Examiner
7/9/19

EXCERPT:

Facebook updated its community standards to allow for users to call for "high-severity violence" against sexual offenders, including death threats.

In its " Do not post" section on its website, Facebook changed its standards in a July update to allow an exception to its "Violence and Incitement" standard for individuals "described as having carried out violent crimes or sexual offenses, wherein criminal/predator status has been established by media reports, market knowledge of news event, etc."

The exception allows users to make: "Threats that could lead to death" against alleged violent and sexual offenders. Facebook does not require for the threats to be against persons who have been convicted under criminal law.

The "alleged violent" part apparently also applies to anyone they don't like. A few conservatve bloggers have recently reported blatant death threats (ie., "I will kill you") only to get replies from Facebook that said posts do not violate their standards and that no action will be taken.
