New York professor Sam Lavigne established a database with the personal information of almost 1,600 I.C.E employees, all of which were immediately sent to Antifa. Lavigne, a game designer and professor at New York Univeristy’s Tisch School of the Arts, is also a far-left activist who shares his views with his students, as well as over 3,600 Twitter followers.
In addition to the domestc terrorist group Antifa, which spread the database to their Twitter followers just hours later, it was also advanced to personal-information-spreading subgroups on Reddit. “Doxxing ICE agents(Nazis) is good and moral,” was a popular comment among the threads that shared the database.
Github, the software developemnt program where Lavigne published the database, removed the page. “It violates our cummunity guidelines,” they said. “We have policies against the use of GitHub for doxxing and harassment, and violating a third party’s privacy.”
Lavigne wrote in a previosly posted Medium blog, “I’ve downloaded and made available the profiles of almost everyone on LinkedIn who works for ICE, 1,595 people in total. While I don’t have a precise idea of what should be done with this data set, I leave it here with the hope that researchers, journalists, and activists will find it useful.”
Despite being deleted by GitHub, Antifa, and whoever they’ve shared it with, still has access to the database after archiving it.
