Police say child-porn video popping up in some Facebook Messenger inboxes

Share

Social media giant Facebook warned its users over the weekend about continuing to share a child pornography video that is widely believed to have been made in Alabama.

The video, which shows a young girl performing oral sex on an adult male, has been shared internationally with complaints coming from from as far away as France.

Police are asking people that have received this video to not share the video with anyone and to notify Facebook immediately.

A spokesman for Central Alabama CrimeStoppers said you should report the video to the social media platform and call your local law enforcement office. We're telling everyone to first notify Facebook, and then delete the files. The Kent County Sheriff's Department says it's a short video that contains child pornography.

South Korea hospital hit by deadly fire
Miryang Fire Station chief Choi Man-Woo apologised for "failing to rescue each and every one" of the patients caught in the fire. Song said the hospital did not have a sprinkler system and was not large enough to require one under South Korean law.

"Every time it gets posted, the victim in this case gets re-victimized for more people to see what they have been subjected to", trial attorney Tim Gann told WHNT News 19 in Alabama. The message is appearing in several forms, one which urges readers to share the video or photo in order to help find the perpetrator and "give justice to the victim".

But investigators say, that's not such a good idea. Include the sender's screen name, but do NOT forward the content to others, including website administrators or law enforcement, as it could be considered distribution.
