Tributes funneling Sandy Hook conspiracies
The number of tribune pages dedicated to those killed or affected by the tragedy in Newtown, Conn. that have turned into stomping grounds for those indulging in conspiracy theories about the shootings has now attracted the attention of lawmakers.
Connecticut Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy, along with Rep. Elizabeth Esty, all Democrats, have gone so far as to formally request that Facebook remove the pages.
Said the representatives:
"Many [pages] give the appearance they were created by loved ones in the names of the victims. Unfortunately, many of these pages have become vehicles for harassment, intimidation and possibly financial fraud.”
Facebook responded by promising to “be vigilant” in flagging inappropriate materials.
