Live-Streaming Video Needs to Stop

Early examples of live streams, like those during Occupy Wall Street, showed potential, providing the general public with easily accessible video footage of what was going on. Now it appears that Facebook’s live video option has risen above the others. But the live-streamed beating of a poor mentally challenged kid in Chicago shows it’s time to look at this differently. Would this have occurred if live video streaming did not exist? Perhaps. The perpetrators could have made a video, but would it have been as exciting if it wasn’t live? – John C. Dvorak, PCMag
