But, because the case in this incident is in Alabama, authorities there are investigating, and the child has been located and is safe, police ask you to delete the video immediately.
Earlier this week, numerous law agencies in MI and beyond issued notices in response to the viral child porn video being spread on the internet notifying the public that sharing a child porn video, regardless of the intent, is illegal.
"There is no goal to forward, share, or view the video in an effort to catch to catch the perpetrator", the police department added.
Federal investigators are warning Facebook users to stop sharing a video depicting child pornography. The video depicted Moore's assault of a girl younger than 13. "We urge people never to share such content and to report it to local authorities immediately".
As investigators try to determine the video's origin, they're also concerned the post could spread viruses to viewers' computers. Houston spoke about the arrest of suspect Germaine Moore, 44, of Millbrook, and a child-porn video circulated on social media during the past few days.
"Bottom line: delete the video, contact your social media provider, and if you have any information, contact police", he said.More news: Rio Tinto full-year profit jumps 69 percent; announces $1 billion buyback

"We don't know how old this video is", Snyder said. "Sharing them, even if your intent is to help, is a crime and continues to victimize the child". But for many of those people, the decision will backfire since they could be charged with distributing child pornography - a criminal offense. Facebook will notify the proper authorities when an inappropriate video is reported.
Do NOT send the video to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children's Facebook page or Facebook Messenger. However, law enforcement agencies are not confirming any arrests because of how the video is being disseminated.
At the news conference, Walker said there are signs to look for if parents believe their child has been abused.
Jerrell Washington, 42, was charged with one count each of possession and dissemination of child pornography, a report said. Unfortunately, sharing that video could land you behind bars.
He turned himself into the Elmore County Detention Facility without incident early Tuesday morning.
"If you get this video, don't panic", Houston said.
