The recent tragedies involving Facebook and victims killed while broadcasted live on camera has sparked a lot of attention – especially from Rev. Jesse Jackson.

Jackson calls for a 30-day hold in memory of Robert Godwin Sr. who was recently shot on the Facebook live feature. He believes that it will draw more awareness and prevent such footage to spread online.

This temporary hold would act as a “time out” according to Jackson.


“The moratorium is … an opportunity for tech companies, elected officials, law enforcement, community based organizations and civil rights advocated and other,” Jackson said.

He later called a meeting with Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg to discuss better matters in handling and preventing situations like this in the future.
