Facebook Says “Kill George Zimmerman” Page Doesn’t Violate Policy

Here’s what happens when you report it.

Facebook has pretty much gone nuts since the announcement of Saturday’s not-guilty verdict in the Florida case of George Zimmerman, who shot and killed Trayvon Martin.

Naturally, people have been creating “Kill George Zimmerman” pages. And if you try to report pages like “Kill George Zimmerman Bitch Azz” or “Kill Zimmerman,” you get the below response from Facebook.

In short, Facebook says of these pages: “We reviewed the group you reported for containing credible threat of violence and found it doesn’t violate our community standard on credible threat of violence.”
