Schmidt: Time to end political targeting, doxing on social media | Community Columnists

With this year coming to an end in a few weeks, I have already made resolutions for the upcoming new year. After the election we had this year, I strongly believe that many of us are now done dealing with politics until the next election cycle rolls around. However, others are full of continuing to create problems based on politics.

Recently, one of my fellow libertarian columnists informed our local party about how an individual known to some of the members was doxxed and harassed by a political Facebook group and its members because of some posts he made. Both the page itself and the people harassing the person have been reported, but the fact that the page itself has targeted an individual and is moving forward in an alleged attempt to ruin a person’s life over politics is extremely unfortunate.
