We got a note from the admins, in particular /u/landoflobsters

Hi mods -- We had to go through and clean up a lot of comments in this thread that were direct calls for murder or violence. We understand it's a sensitive and emotionally charging situation, however, we cannot have calls for murder on Reddit.

Please refrain from death threats. I don't want to ban people. I really do not. However, the admins have demonstrated they have absolutely no problems deleting large subreddits and none of you are more important than this subreddit and the activism opportunity it provides.

This sub helps a LOT of these stories go viral and does a fair amount to create nation and even worldwide awareness. So quit pretending you are more important than everyone else here and stop making death threats.

Saying "I will kill someone" is not ok. Saying "I hope he is treated how he treats others" is likely ok - I'm not really certain - we don't have 100% clarity on the rules because the admins have failed to make a public post clearly stating what is and is not ok. So now, its time to use your adult words and think of more creative ways to express yourselves. Please.

Per one of our previous posts on the subject -

Wishing physical harm on someone is not acceptable. If you come across any content you're unsure about and want us to review, feel free to send it our way and we'll be happy to help. We review these carefully so we can understand the context to be sure it's in violation.
