Facebook hit lists?

Three [Colombian] 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. [...]

Authorities also are offering a reward of 5 million pesos for information on the killings.

The Hit List:

Posted August 17, the hit list contained the names of 69-name targets in addition to the three who have been killed giving them a “3 day period to leave the town of Puerto Asis or be executed“, said Volmar Perez Ortiz, a federal official whose title is defender of the public.

The Police:

Until the executions occurred, the police simply thought it was a joke or a stupid prank!

The Media:

Colombian media announced that the number of those threatened has grown and panic has overtaken Puerto Asis, with some parents sending their children out of town because their names are on the Facebook notice!

The Scare:

The scary part about this is that the police claim that they do not know who posted the list or why the names are on it. It also seems that no one has come forward with any further information regarding this hit list, its source or any reasons for it.

The Reaction:

Are you worried about which psycho will be preparing a new hit list in a location next to you? Do you think this could become an even more serious issue?

Looking forward to your insights down below…

    interesting piece of news though i find it very weird that Facebook would be the place where they would post such a list rather than the town poles since the police would be able to just contact Facebook and get the ips of the poster…
