Facebook Served Warrant After Teenagers, Skipping Class, Live-Stream a Threesome To Friends In Health Class

Social media giant Facebook has been issued a warrant by the Milwaukee police after three teenagers skipped school and reportedly live-streamed themselves having a threesome over the popular social media platform. The live-stream of the threesome is said to have occurred while the teens were skipping class, and the feed was actually being watched on the cell phones of some of their classmates during a health class.

The threesome and its live-stream to Facebook apparently took place in January of this year and the participants involved were a 14-year-old girl, a 15-year-old girl, and a boy of the same age. All three of the teenagers who participated in the sex act are students of Barack Obama School. Local Milwaukee media house, CBS 58, reported that the warrant, which was issued to Facebook, is an attempt by the Milwaukee Police to gain some more information about the details surrounding the live-stream, particularly about the account of one of the student participants – the youngest of the lot.

“Milwaukee Police are asking Facebook to hand over all the information it has on the account of a 14-year-old girl. From pictures, status history and videos to user information like name, email, and IP address.”

The warrant served to Facebook also went on to state that the two under-aged girls face the possibility f being charged with “exposing a child to harmful material,” due to the fact that the live-stream was being viewed by students who had not ditched school and were in health class instead. The warrant does not, however, mention the 15-year-old boy who was in the threesome at all, leading to the conclusion that following investigations since January the boy will not face charges for his involvement in the sex act.

It has been speculated that the live-stream, which Facebook introduced only a few weeks ago and has been heavily promoting, was a private video chat with the students who were able to view it rather than a public one. The livestreaming service is known as Facebook Live. The speculated reasons were later given credence and confirmation by officials from the Barack Obama School when a statement was released outlining their reaction to the scandalous sex act their students were involved in.

According to the school, back in January when the staff first became aware of the fact that a video displaying inappropriate sexual conduct taking place outside of school and off campus they immediately notified the proper authorities. The Barack Obama School maintains that they fully cooperated with the investigation into the threesome. The students faced disciplinary actions from the school as well and now await a decision from the authorities.

According to the principal, Nicole Mcdowell, the three teenagers cut class after first period on January 14 and were live-streaming the sex acts during health class, which was at 1:00 p.m.. Yahoo has lamented on the stupidity associated with the decision the three teenagers made to live-stream their threesome since not only did it provide proof that they were skipping school but the risks associated with videoing yourself doing a sex act are well known. Of course, the more serious crime of distributing child pornography is one which will have far reaching consequences for those involved.

The popularity of live-streaming platforms such as Facebook Live and the more long-standing Periscope has lent itself to similar criminal activity in the past. The Inquisitr previously reported that in February an 18-year-old live-streamed the rape of her friend. In another instance, a woman did a live stream of herself driving drunk on Periscope.

Facebook released a statement that it cannot comment on individual cases, when asked for comment but advised that Facebook Live has implemented a tool where other users can report a stream if it violates their Community Standards. They did so with the hope that they can interrupt the stream as soon as possible and expressed commitment to “improving the effectiveness of how we handle reports of live content that violates our Community Standards.”
