He guys, it’s Amanda! Going along the same vein of my post from last week, members of the FBI created a fake news website to catch a bomb threat suspect in Washington. My post about the young woman on FB from last week was brought up in the trial, and whether this creating of a fake news site was ethical. Personally, I find this case more ethical than the FBI case, but perhaps because that other case made me angry and was much worse in my opinion because a young woman’s privacy was violated.
What do you guys think? Should there be concerns about the FBI creating fake websites to catch criminals or possible suspects?
