3 Colombian teens on Facebook hit list killed in past 10 days




Three teens who were on a 69-name hit list posted on Facebook have been killed in the past 10 days in a southwestern Colombian town, officials say. Police say they do not know who posted the list or why the names are on it.

"It is still not clear," Colombian national police spokesman Wilson Baquero told CNN. "This is part of the investigation."

But officials note that a criminal gang known as Los Rastrojos and a Marxist guerrilla group called the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia operate in the area.

The hit list on Facebook, which was posted August 17, gave the people named three days to leave the town of Puerto Asis or be executed


Wow...this is nuts. It is one thing to have your name appear on such a list...especially one posted on something like Facebook. It is entirely another thing when fellow list members start dropping!!!

I can only imagine what the town people must be experiencing. Everyone is living in fear and the authorities and politicians cannot seem to do a thing about it.

MOD EDIT: Title change,

Geez, add that to Facebook being used by world wide terror groups to send each other their cryptic little messages.
And now ATS has joined the FB mess.

Well, I've typed two posts and erased both of them because I'm really not sure what to write about this. Honestly, that's just crazy. They should probably get all the people whose names are on that list and take them into protective custody until the gang is caught. Have cops stake out the would-be victims houses waiting for the murders. Hmm, strange...and frankly, I don't know...networking sites are really being given bad names for stuff like this.

Seems like a good reason to crack down on Internet Security.

It seems to me that this is just a case of bad people using the most efficient or accessible means of communication to do what they would be doing anyway.

Associating Facebook with this is like blaming the postman for what comes in the mail.

Well the CEO drops thousands towards the socialists.

Doesn't take a genius to figure out that he might have a few hitmen.

Good lord they know everything about you before you even sign up cause they know already. You only help them fill in the dots.

I am happy with myspace.

Wake up people.

Why is everyone getting all paranoid? It seems as though it was a gang related "activity". No reason to stop the presses...

Since when is exasperation leading to pure and complete apathy considered paranoid?
Perhaps you should tell Webster's Dictionary about your update of the word....

I don't think people are getting paranoid, and fwiw this is not typical gang violence. There is an actual public list, on the most popular social network on the planet, of those people that have been chosen to be executed.

If that little tidbit does not separate this from run of the mill gang activity, I do not know what will.

I warned another forum of this as a possible issue a few years ago. The data you can find on the forums and its users varies from site to site, and this one allowed IP addresses to be displayed (until i started digging, that is).

Turns out, this "forum gang" that showed up all used proxy IP's, and with them came a HUGE rash of new members with zero posts but with spammer names. Turns out, these spammer accounts were not spamming at all. They were sending private messages to each other. They had names like "viagraforcheap", etc.

Now, were they related to the forum gang? I dunno...but the forum gang is what lead me to uncover what was happening (with the help of an admin). The site ownership brushed it under the rug and never bothered to ban any of the accounts. They just let them continue using the site messaging system for whatever purpose it was being used for.

That precipitated my leaving that site and coming to this one. Best move i could have made.

Bingo!!!

Out of curiosity, i wonder if Skeptic Overlord has to cede our U2U system to PTB tomfoolery?

And maybe you should re-read my post. I was talking about the topic being gang related...


And now ATS has joined the FB mess.


Maybe you should read the entire thread by SkepticOverlord, outlining ATS's mission of being on facebook... it is as if it doesn't get through to some of you...


Our page on Facebook, with a regular feed of new topics, our videos, and ATS Live is (as mentioned) an outreach to help more people become aware. You can't, on one hand, discuss these topics with fervor and claim great important, while on the other hand resist efforts to inform those who are unaware.

ATS Is On Facebook


ATS being on Facebook doesn't make it any different from being on any other social network including Twitter. It is a way to spread the word and help members get the messages and ideas across a wide range of platforms - A tool so many members are being ungrateful of!
