Police issue warning on child porn video being shared on Facebook

Warning about child porn video circulating Facebook

The girl and the man in the video have not yet been identified, Alabama investigators said.

A link and video is making the rounds on social media that includes what appears to be a sexually explicit image involving a child. This is in an effort to locate the victim, as well as figure out the origin of the video.

It is considered child pornography and if you share it, you could be charged with a felony. "As this investigation proceeds, law enforcement issues a reminder to the public that possession, dissemination or sharing of this video is a criminal act". You won't be asked to provide a copy of the content in any report to Facebook. DO NOT share the video, report it to Facebook immediately, then delete it. Sharing the video will not give justice to the victim; instead, it will continue to victimize the child.

Contact local law enforcement immediately and report the photos or videos to Facebook. Facebook will notify the proper authorities when an inappropriate video is reported. "Facebook will notify the police department and so we're asking no one to share it", says Paul Hill.

"So, there's a pretty good chance that whoever is in that video and involved in this is somebody that they may know and trust", Ziegler said.

Alabama law enforcement agencies are also conducting an ongoing criminal investigation.

The FBI encourages parents to educate young people on the essentials of online security in an effort to help protect them from child predators and other dangers on the Internet.
