Most Agree: Stabber Facebook Page Poor Taste 8-11-2010

While the profile looks like your ordinary Facebook page, the photo posted on the wallpaper is a sketch of the Flint serial killer under the name of "the Flint stabber" means it isn’t ordinary.
There are also racist comments posted by whoever set up the page, and even more disturbing is the fact that as of Wednesday morning, more than 200 people have signed on to "like" the page.

TV5's Craig McMorris decided to take a television station laptop computer out to ask people what they thought about this Facebook profile.
People said they hope it was an attempt to draw attention to the killer with the goal of catching him.
"Well, it will help people know more, who don't really watch the news, and people be on that thing all the time,” said Penny Vaughn, a Saginaw resident. “I guess that's a way of getting it out there, but I don't know who would support that, though."
"I think if maybe they're trying to bring out awareness, of maybe they're trying to make everyone aware of who this guy is and keep your eye out,” said another Saginaw resident, Stefanie Geilhart. “I can understand maybe liking it for that reason, but I don't think people should be mocking it."
One woman thinks Facebook should be taken to task for allowing the profile.
"Facebook maintains their stuff, maybe somebody should let Facebook know so they could take it off," said Nicole Kroulik.
And most people TV5 talked with agreed the profile is in bad taste.
"It sounds a lot like they're glorifying him,” said Miguel Vargas. “It's not right.”
