Why censor people post-mortem who commit suicide by cop?

Why was J Patrick Bedell's (yesterday's Pentagon shooter) FaceBook page deleted? What would we have learned that we aren't supposed to? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Patrick_Bedell#cite_note-8

I am sure he was a libertarian, as is being posted everywhere from the DailyKos to the Christian Science Monitor, and also a 9/11 truther, and personally disturbed -- I mean, if you wanted to attack the Pentagon and you were a programmer why would you shoot a guard instead of hacking their systems?

I think this was a mentally ill person committing suicide by cop.

But why is whatever he said on his page censored?

FaceBook actually had an explicit policy discussed last year, that some people found gruesome, of keeping deceased people's pages up. Why are (certain?) ideological pages treated differently?
