As Americans grappled for a motive behind Friday’s deadly attack that killed a Capitol Police officer, Facebook locked everything attacker Noah Green had posted on Facebook and Instagram behind a wall of policy.
Green, 25, was killed by a Capitol Policer after he rammed two officers with his car outside the Capitol building perimeter in Washington, killing Officer William Evans.
A second officer was wounded.
“After this horrific event, our thoughts are with the Capitol Police and their loved ones. We have designated the incident under our Dangerous Individuals and Organizations policy, which means we have removed the suspect’s accounts from Facebook and Instagram, and are removing any content that praises, supports, or represents the attack or the suspect. We are in contact with law enforcement as they conduct their investigation,” Facebook said in a statement, according to The Hill.
