Social Media accounts to defend a convicted person for hate crime
Twitter account defending the murderer of a young anti-fascist.

There are some social media accounts (facebook, twitter, ask and blog) that has been created to defend a convicted person who killed a young antifascist in Spain in 2007. Josué Estebanez murdered Carlos Palomino stabbing him directly in his heart inside a subway in Madrid. Since Josué was condemned for this crime motivated for his extremist ideology, a group of "patriotic fans" are defending his freedom through different channels as they are sure he is a political prisoner and he did not committed any crime. They always use the hashtag #JosuéLibertad

Carlos Palomino was killed by a man in Madrid subway. The murderer was sentenced to 26 years in prison, and since then a lot of  people ask for his freedom thorugh social media channels and say that Josué acted in self-defense. Some blogs, FB and Twitter accounts of these people say that Carlos Palomino deserved what happened to him.
