ATHENS-CLARK, Ga. — A police department in Georgia decided to create a Facebook page to aid their search for cop killer Jamie Hood last week. Sometime after that page went up, a fan page was created in support of Hood.

While the page immediately became the target of controversy, it also gained support: Nearly 2,000 people “liked” the fan page.

Facebook has since removed the page.

The video below explores the freedom of speech that goes along with censoring this type of behavior. Watch the video and please discuss the issue in the comments section.
