In wake of the murder of Cleveland grandfather Robert Godwin, whose shooting was broadcast live on Facebook, Rev. Jesse Jackson is calling for a 30-day halt of the Facebook Live feature both in memory of Goodwin and as a call-to-action to prevent footage of more drastic & heinous acts from spreading online in the future.
The live feature on Facebook has captured several deaths since it was launch. Jackson met with officials in the Chicago area to discuss this matter, calling for Facebook to put the service into action and installing a method that would allow for the instant removal of disturbing content.
