Again?

There was a similar one last year. A mother was checking out her son's Facebook page, and found 4-5 classmates conspiring to kill him. They were discussing the different methods and seemed serious. What had happened was that the girl who instigated this was mad that someone told on her her illegal alien boyfriend for bringing a gun to school. The boy she tried to get others to kill was not the one who got the scumbag student in trouble. So a handful of students were arrested over that one.

Well just UN-friend them !
Won't that just INSTANTLY resolve the problem.
That seems to be the attitude of SO MANY people,children & adults
What about the people with 2 thousand f.b. "friends" ?
All the c/p/ intelligence that is being thrown about IS most definitely swiping i.q. pts. from people. Rick

The mother got a restraining order so the conspiring killers can't come within 200 yards of her son's myspace.

I bet if the intended target had never gone on fbook in the first place the supposed plot against him would never have metastasized.

So no, still no plus side.

Yeah, but there's no unshoot option.

It is funny how many get trouble over threats and murder plots on Facebook.

Ok just because you unfriend somebody who is plotting to kill you will not stop them from killing you. Luckily they were friends on fb or the mom wouldn't have seen the plot and ultimately the killing might have took place. Do you think that a restraining order is going to keep people away. First they have to be caught by the authorities breaking the restraining order before they can be arrested. Meaning you would have to see them call the cops and hope they showed up before someone got killed.

That's a misstatement of fact due to a chronically wet brain. Think about it.

That's correct. Defriending anyone doesn't remove any danger. It is like the advice given for cyberbullying to turn off the PC. No, if they are local people badmouthing you, turning off the PC won't stop them from making enemies for you. In fact, it would be better to be online to refute the worst of the stuff.

And they might not even be your FB friends in the first place. Sometimes it would be friends of friends you are seeing, depending on everyone's settings. So you might have a friend who is in a gang but they have family in a rival gang, and it is the family of the friend and their friends who wants you dead.
