Letter to Mark Zuckerberg: Why is it so hard to report Facebook Messenger videos portraying violence, pornography and child pornography to the police?

Jen Stirrup

Dear Mark, I am sorry if this is an emotive post but here goes. I’ve just been sent a violent video of a man abusing a little girl. She is about a year old. It has a sexual component. I am not going to share it, but I would like to be able to report it to the police easily. I received it on Messenger. I will say that it is beyond evil and I am shaking, angry and frightened. Generally speaking, I am against the death penalty but some people really, really stretch that conviction.
