Police issue warning on child porn video being shared on Facebook

Police issue warning on child porn video being shared on Facebook

A video of a young girl performing oral sex on a man was circulated on Facebook, causing law enforcement to issue warnings to those sharing it.

Multiple police departments and the FBI are investigating an apparent disturbing, pornographic video involving a minor that is being shared and forwarded extensively on Facebook, according to media reports this week from around the country.

Police say several people in Marietta came to report the video.

Anyone with investigative information on the identity of child or the suspect in this video should contact Maryland State Police at 410-653-4200.

In a statement, Facebook said "We do not allow the sharing of child exploitative images on Facebook or Messenger, even to express outrage". The Kent County Sheriff's Department says it's a short video that contains child pornography.

Social media users trying to help investigators have shared the video causing what's considered child pornography to go viral.

Tony Garrett with Central Alabama CrimeStoppers told CBS-affiliated WHNT that people are sharing the video with the best intentions, but it is doing more harm than good.

"The video is being transmitted with various text asking users to share it broadly in order to help identify the perpetrator", Morrissey's office said.

Police in Youngstown said the family service unit is investigating the case.

Report inappropriate activity or content to the website immediately upon receipt.

Immediately delete the file and all record of the communication.

Other police agencies around the country are also aware of the video.

Corporate headquarters discourages people from sharing the video at all.
