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.
