A group of current and former Australian soldiers have been accused of running a public Instagram page that celebrated violent acts and shared video footage. Titled State Sanctioned Violence, the page also mocked war crimes and stated they pledge to “keep the legacy of the boys we lost alive.” One source for ABC News has also noted that the page is largely run by two special forces members, one current and one former. “If Defence personnel are identified as having posted inappropriate material, they will be investigated and held accountable for contravening Defence policy,” the Defence Force commented.
