    Yes, while it is very unfortunate and a blatant breach of data, I can't be the only one who thinks this wasn't completely unexpected. From the first time I opened a Facebook account 9 years ago until present day there were some things that were make completely clear to me by adults, the media, the internet etc: Anything and everything you put on Facebook no longer belongs to you. With a simple google image search of my name I can find access to numerous photos I had posted, knowing well they were now public property. For years applications have been asking us to link up to google and asking us if we allow them to collect our public profile, data , etc. We have known for sometime that face book can not be trusted as a private source and that for the most part our data and information no longer becomes OUR data and information. The factor in this scandal that does bother me however is the fact that at no point did zuckerberg feel it was appropriate to make it clear that our data was being stolen. So many people everyday mindlessly click "allow" to numerous apps trying to connect to our Facebook page. The first step should have been to at least alert the people of Facebook.

  • This absolutely breaks my heart. "Innocent until proven guilty", sure unless you are a person of color. Until the police force begins to recognize that there needs to be an update in protocol when a call is regarding a person of color, justice is far from being possible. Why did they not ask Questions

    This absolutely breaks my heart. "Innocent until proven guilty", sure unless you are a person of color. Until the police force begins to recognize that there needs to be an update in protocol when a call is regarding a person of color, justice is far from being possible. Why did they not ask Questions of witnesses? Review camera footage? It was clear from both the witnesses and 911 calls that these men were not a threat to harm, they were being accused of trespassing. There needs to be a look over created by an panel that is diverse and representative of many races to create a new protocol and alter the one currently in place that allows for blatant prejudice to play a part.
