Under Georgia law, the identities of the jurors are not secret. The names of the Fulton County jurors are listed on former President Donald Trump’s fourth indictment. So, pro-Trump forums are throwing their names out there with threats.
One outlet reports that a fringe website featured the purported names and addresses of the Fulton County grand jury, and at the top of my head, I can only think of two. 8Chan (or 8Kun) came from 4Chan. When 4Chan disallowed doxxing, folks moved to 8Chan, where I’ve been doxxed. And then there is Truth Social.
The Independent reports:
Truth Social predictably flew into a rage over the latest indictment of Donald Trump — this time in Georgia, where he and 18 others were hit with a slew of charges over attempts to overturn his 2020 election loss in the state.
The former president’s followers were quick to comfort him, push conspiracies and call for retaliation after a Fulton County grand jury indicted him Monday on 13 counts, including racketeering, filing false documents, and attempting to coerce public officers to violate their oaths.
Many of the users launched direct attacks on the grand jurors – going so far as to share their names and details about their purported social media profiles.
NBC News reports:
The grand jurors have come under attack in the days since Trump’s indictment, the fourth criminal indictment brought against the twice-impeached former president.
“These jurors have signed their death warrant by falsely indicting President Trump,” a post on a pro-Trump forum read in response to a post including the names of jurors, which was viewed by NBC News.
Doxxing is a very dangerous practice. When it happened to me, threats flooded in. My life quickly changed. They came to my house in the middle of the night. Can you possibly even imagine how bad it must be for the jurors? It would make my experience look like amateur hour.
