An Oktibbeha County Supervisor claims her Facebook page has been hijacked. I believe it's entirely possible. Mine was hijacked a year or so ago and I was blocked from getting back on.
The hacker has been contacting my FB "friends" with requests for money, saying I'm in desperate need, or saying that I recommend they send him money to get a "free" government grant, no-holds-barred, or, in one case, he sent some real friends of mine a threat saying I was on my way to KILL her and her husband.
Needless to say, I immediately contacted the Internet Crimes Commission. If this jerk would send threats to somebody I personally know, he just might send one to the president. I do NOT want Secret Service SWAT agents busting my door down with machine guns primed for action.
A black parent in Georgia by the name of Corrie Davis, was upset over a school day in which the children were encouraged to dress in period clothing from the 1860s for a lesson on the Civil War, and another 10-year-old, dressed as a plantation owner, told her son, "You are my slave." I understand the reason why she was upset, but she could have accomplished a lot more by making it a teaching moment instead of a "I'm offended" moment.
