The moral depravity of young people in America is plunging to new depths.
An explicit three-minute video showing young people in Tulsa having sex or fighting violently was viewed over 375,000 times on Facebook after it was posted Friday night. Some of the young people having sex or being savagely beaten up were easily identifiable.
According to Tulsa Police, the video, which had music underneath the images, was shared more than 3,500 times, but there’s nothing the police can do about it unless someone comes forward and files a police report.
Tulsa Police Department Officer Jeanne MacKenzie told KJRH, "It's a shocking video for anyone to see … If a person came forward saying, 'This is me. I got jumped,' or 'This is me and I didn't share this photo,' or 'Someone took this photo without my knowledge,' then we would have some type of crime.”
MacKenzie added, "You can't have pictures of naked children, but trying to determine if those people in that video are children or not would be a hard task for us, because there are certain criteria we have to go by to determine whether or not they are a child.”
The person who created the video said the videos were sent in. On the Facebook page the creator wrote, “Everyone on that video is laughin it off or proud …” Mackenzie said regarding that statement, "If that is true and everyone in that video gave her permission to post it, then that makes it legal.”
MacKenzie said if a crime had been committed, officers would determine if the people were underage, intoxicated or if they gave consent. She asserted some of the explicit videos were sent out on Snapchat, adding, "I've seen a lot of people say it goes away in 24 hours, but it still can be screen shot. Other people can see it."
MacKenzie warned parents of young people, “There are cameras everywhere. You might think you are doing something that no one will know or see, but the possibility of someone filming it or sharing are great nowadays."
KJRH stated, “Officers said if someone in the video is a minor or did not want their video published in the montage, they can contact police.”
