or maybe, just maybe, it's because the post (& topic) breaks at LEAST 2 of our rules? No politics, no analysis/opinion, & we don't accept content from salon.com

Sweden gang rape 'live-streamed on Facebook' by Quiglius in news

[–]RNews_Mod[M] [score hidden] stickied comment (0 children)

This thread has been locked because of personal information and racism.

People are posting 4chan links to supposed images of the suspects and the rape in progress. They are also naming the alleged suspects and guessing at their religious backgrounds, despite the police publicizing only the birth dates of the victim and suspects.

Here at /r/news we take personal information very seriously because of the events of the Boston bombing. As such, we will remove all names, photos, etc of victims and suspects until such time as they have been identified by official sources AND publicized.

Unfortunately, the comments relating to personal information have gotten so out of hand that we are locking the thread. We've seen what happens when reddit witch-hunts run unchecked and we aren't going to let it happen again.

r/news is for all news. r/worldnews is specifically for news outside of the USA. It is appropriate for both subs.
