Police warn of child porn video being shared on Facebook

Many people shared the video to try to identify the man shown abusing the young girl, but this can do more harm than good, Tony Garrett with Central Alabama CrimeStoppers told WHNT News 19.

Police across the country are warning Facebook users to not share or view the video. "In this case, that is incorrect information and we do not want to see an innocent person get in trouble", the Marietta Police Department in Georgia wrote Friday in a Facebook post.

The Kent County Sheriff's Office said it is investigating the matter.

Any users who share the video, could face criminal consequences.

Any individual who gets the video is encouraged to not impart the video to anybody, to advise Facebook promptly, and from that point forward, erasing the document from your Facebook account.

Jury finds Ronald Gasser guilty of manslaughter in Joe McKnight shooting

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

9NEWS has spoken to DPD and would like to let everyone know that sharing or messaging a video featuring child porn breaks both state and federal law.

In a statement, Facebook said "We do not allow the sharing of child exploitative images on Facebook or Messenger, even to express outrage".

If you share the video, you could be criminally charged. If this video should be shared with you, do not share it with anyone else via email or social media. Law enforcement are doing their jobs.

Corporate headquarters discourages people from sharing the video at all.
