(Before It's News)

Two teenagers wanted in connection with a viral video posted on Facebook Live that shows the sexual and physical assault of a woman are in police custody, according to the Gulfport Police Department

EDITOR’S NOTE: Social media giant Facebook takes great pride in thier “community standards”, even going so far as having international ‘deletion teams’ to remove “hate speech” and other things they deem offensive. Yet somehow, they seem unable to prevent dozens of live videos over their networks showing rapes, suicides and sexual assaults. Seems to me that creating an algorithm to detect certain trigger keywords when spoken to cut off the stream shouldn’t be so hard to do. So why aren’t they doing it?

Haleigh Alexis Hudson, 19, turned herself into police around 7 p.m. Wednesday. She was arrested on charges of felony kidnapping and sexual assault. Ezzie Johnson, 17, was arrested by police around 8 p.m. Wednesday. He faces a charge of felony kidnapping.

Harrison County Justice Court Judge Brandon Ladner set Hudson’s bond at $400,000. Johnson’s bond was set by Ladner at $200,000. Hudson and Johnson are held at the Harrison County jail.

Officers at 11:46 p.m. Tuesday responded to a report of an assault on the 3100 block of 7th Avenue and learned a woman was sexually and physically assaulted while being recorded on Facebook Live.

Gulfport Police Chief Leonard Papania said officers worked through the night and obtained warrants for Johnson and Hudson. Johnson, who will be charged as an adult, is accused of filming the video at Hudson’s home.

The victim is a 23-year-old woman. Papania said additional charges of abusing a vulnerable adult would apply if the victim is mentally handicapped.

He said he does expect additional arrests.

The viral video was removed from Facebook, but a copy of the video was posted Wednesday morning. It has gotten around 48,000 views on Facebook, Papania said.

“I can’t help but be disturbed by the incredible numbers of shares and views of this crude and despicable event,” he said. “We videotape pain and suffering, then we share it and then we view it over and over.” source
