Facebook admits to pulling Noah Green’s accounts after fatal Capitol incident


Facebook admitted Friday it suspended the accounts of the suspect in the fatal US Capitol incident — as news outlets reported he was a Nation of Islam devotee who recently lost his job and believed the government was conducting mind control experiments on him.

“We have designated the incident under our Dangerous Individuals and Organization policy, which means we have removed the suspect’s accounts from Facebook and Instagram, and are removing any content that praises, supports, or represents the attack or the suspect,” Facebook said in a statement to NBC.

Facebook regularly shuts down pages belonging to suspects in terror attacks and high-profile fatal incidents, but typically before the press can locate.

Facebook did not respond for comment.

Noah Green, 25, struck two officers, killing one, at the US Capitol just after 1 p.m. Friday, cops said.

Green got out of the car, wielding a knife, and lunged at officers before being fatally shot. Capitol Police Officer William Evans died 30 minutes after the attack at the hospital.

Green’s Facebook page, reviewed by The Post before it was taken down, wrote about Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and losing his job after graduating college.

In Instagram stories, some posted just hours before the attack, Green blamed the US government for his issues and wrote he believed federal law enforcement agencies were trying to conduct mind-control experiments on him, according to CNN.
