Fake Facebook Page Created Under Shooting Suspect's Name
KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- In a bizarre twist to the Aurora shooting, someone has made a fake Facebook page under the names James Holmes and hundreds of people have "liked" it.
The page was created Friday by an unknown person or persons, although there seems to be one person who is responding to a lot of the criticism. This person responded, "It's a page for those who like James, give him a second chance."
The page is causing a lot of anger and protest from users who are writing things like, "What kind of sense of humor do you have to possess to get kicks out of other people's pain, especially with this kind of tragedy? The creator of this page is a truly sick individual."
Another says, "Although it may be offensive to others, it is not illegal. Don't like it? Don't look at it."
The page already has hundreds of followers and the count is growing rapidly. There's no indication from officials as to whether or not the page will be taken down.
Reports indicate the FBI is investigating. Meanwhile, dozens of other Facebook pages both in support of and against Holmes have popped up.
