On online forums, individuals are threatening violence and attempting to publicly identify the jurors who convicted former President Donald Trump. Calls for retribution emerged immediately after the verdict announcement. Anonymity is meant to protect jurors, but it is increasingly being disregarded. Social media platforms have enabled the sharing of personal information of potential jurors, a practice known as doxxing, which can lead to real-life security issues. This amateur online sleuthing often results in mistaken identities and wrongful accusations. Violent rhetoric has also been directed at other individuals involved in the case, such as the presiding judge and journalists.
