From IJ Review: A disturbing new trend has hit social media following the manhunt for Eric Sheppard, a Valdosta State University student who allegedly brought a gun on campus during anti-American flag protests last week.
Despite the ongoing manhunt and pleas from Sheppard’s father to turn himself in, Campus Reform reports on the #EricSheppardChallenge, which has been created in honor of the member of the New Black Panther Party and self-proclaimed “terrorist against white people.”
Supposedly in support of Sheppard, numerous people have taken to social media to add posts of themselves desecrating the American flag.
