Youngstown police are asking individuals to not share a viral Facebook video of a child performing a sex act on an adult, even if it is done to help seek justice.

Law authorization organizations around metro Atlanta are alarming inhabitants to a child pornography video of a young lady and a grown-up male being flowed by means of Facebook mail.

Maryland Heights Police Department tweeted Saturday that they were aware of the content being shared, and warned people to not open the video or send it to anyone.

Memphis police say if a pornographic image shows up on your page, you need to contact Facebook immediately and delete it from your account. "If you are in possession of it, no matter your good intentions, that is also a felony", Madison County's Chief Trial Attorney, Tim Gann explained. Investigators received the explicit video earlier this week.

"Sharing said image is considered distribution and you could be criminally charged for doing so", the department said.
