In Chicago — there was a gang rape of a 15-year old teenager that was filmed on Facebook Live, but nobody reported it to police until the survivor’s mother approached the police superintendent and showed him images from the video. The mother said the girl was missing since Sunday.
The superintendent, Eddie Johnson, immediately ordered detectives to investigate — and they were able to find the girl and bring her back to her family.
The police department contacted Facebook and had the video removed. The superintendent was reported to be upset and disappointed to see that 40 people watched the video without reporting it.
It is the second high-profile terrible crime with Facebook Live in the Chicago area — I previously reported about four people who tortured a mentally disabled person and streamed it live.
