Facebook Must Remove Page Outing Sex Offenders, Says UK Judge

According to a UK High Court, Facebook is not allowed to host a page that publicly outs convicted sex offenders. A Judge has given Facebook 72 hours to remove a page called Keeping our kids safe from predators, which routinely posts personal information and photos of child predators in Northern Ireland.

The decree stems from a suit brought by a convicted sex offender, only referred to as “XY.” XY claims that the Facebook page amounts to harassment, misuse of private info, and a violation of his privacy. He fears that he may be attacked or otherwise publicly degraded as a result of the page. Facebook has apparently already removed any mention of XY on the page, but the court’s ruling demands that Facebook take an extra step and nix the page altogether. Full Article

    This really upsets me especially when they state that we will be post another page from America “at least there they won’t take it down”. Do they not understand that we have children who are already targets at school and every student at their school have a Facebook page. Who’s protecting them? Is Facebook posting all the drug dealers? How about murders? Or stalker page? Or im going to cheat with your husband or wife page? Facebook you have way more other problems then signaling out one group of people and hurting the children that are unfortunately in the same group because of ignorant people.
