Have Facebook Remove Pages Threatening The Lives Of Cops.

As a former New York City high school teacher, I heard from many of my students about their fears and frustrations as ethnic minorities, and came to appreciate their very real concerns about ethnic profiling by police officers. That said, many of the young people in my classroom were also ethical adults, reasonable citizens with an interest in academics and improving life where they live. To that end, many of them entered the military, the police academy and other security-related professions after graduating high school with the clear intent to contribute to the community and the nation. So I was deeply saddened to see on Facebook that a dear student I knew to be a good man was reporting the tragic death of the two police officers shot while they sat in their patrol car. My former student was a personal friend. The world got smaller again. I was reminded how we are not distant, but are all responsible for raising the level of consciousness for the benefit of all of us. A disturbed man committed a horrid crime, and more people are dead, for no good reason. The police are not the enemy. Some may need to deal with their own ignorance, but they deal with death threats and challenges daily so the rest of us can sleep well at night. Hate speech on Facebook against police officers is bad policy. Mark Z. and your company, we love your service and network, but please be the voice of reason and monitor your service. Let's not provoke more violence if it can be avoided by taking the high road. Sincerely, Ms. Diana Lee Friedline
