The page’s previous posts remain available, but administrators cannot post new content for their 860,000 followers, Reclaim the Net reported.
The most recent posts from Law Enforcement Today oppose censorship and crime.
“We support those who hold the Thin Blue Line… in part because we ARE those who hold the Thin Blue Line,” the group says in its “About” page.
This is the second time Facebook has censored Law Enforcement Today.
In December, Facebook removed posting rights from Law Enforcement Today’s national spokesman, Kyle Reyes.
Twitter users celebrated the group’s suspension.
As it should be, they found law enforcement and military were part of the insurrection.

They’ve stopped certain groups from posting until they can look into them further. Sounds like your members have been posting a lot of seditious statements. They are handing information over to the @FBI, good luck

A few remaining conservatives on Twitter defended Law Enforcement Today.
This is crazy! I think they are trying to prevent a insurrection or whatever in their mind. Totally insane!

Others told Law Enforcement Today to abandon Facebook, despite its massive following on the platform.
No disrespect. Given the number of times FB has purportedly banned you guys, why don’t you both just part ways? Not sure that FascistBook owes anybody anything, and the sooner it dies off the better every one will be. Disclaimer: I’m not a FB user.
