Facebook continues to play a role in causing deaths around the world. This is an ongoing catalog of how Facebook has enabled death.
Kenosha Shooting: Facebook admits that it kept up a listing for the “Kenosha Guard” militia group that sent people to Kenosha, Wisconsin. Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, reportedly used that group when he went to the city and shot someone dead in August of 2020.
Militia Groups: Even though Facebook claimed that it has banned militia groups, a Recode investigation found such groups still thriving on the site: “Recode’s quick Facebook search for ‘militia’ groups and pages on Friday surfaced over a dozen results for national and local militia groups, most of them private, with many of them openly calling for violence against protesters.”
