Yes Subby, that was pretty hilarious!

Since it was in England, no one was at risk of being shot by a trigger-happy cop (if there actually had been people there).

Understandable misunderstanding. Not "live" as in a tv station "broadcasting live", "live" as in synchronized streaming so viewers see the same video at around the same time...what a tv station would just call "broadcasting". But "Facebook Broadcast" doesn't sound as cool as "Facebook Live".

"I looked at our CCTV and saw about 20 police officers outside," he said.

Someone should call the cops on the cops

"A bunch of thugs outside my establishment. I'm especially worried because my doors are closed and nobody is there right now. Can you send somebody out there to scare them away?"

For their next trick, maybe they could do news reports about invaders from Mars.

So the club owners were commiting a series of burglaries across town at that moment?

In fairness, "Facebook Live" is kind of intentionally designed to be misleading, since it's just a streaming service.

Specifically, a streaming service on Facebook, which means it's targeting a demographic of exclusively the people that your grandmother who keeps asking you how to save the "internet" program to her computer rightfully calls old and out of touch.  So, y'know, not a group of people who are exactly primed with the contextual knowledge to know what a stream is and that there is any distinction between it and Live Television even if you tried to explain it.

... basically what I'm saying here is that the cops should send the bill for intentional misuse of city resources to Facebook, because the company essentially intentionally set things up to guarantee this would happen in exchange for a few short-term dollars.

I looked at our CCTV and saw about 20 police officers outside.

Now it's time to call the irony police.

They couldn't just check the CCTV to determine that nobody was entering or exiting the establishment?

They clearly have nothing else to do

This headline made me think of this forgotten gem of a so-bad-it's-still-bad-but-I-liked-it movie (time code 3:58 if the embed doesn't work right):

Police don't have access to private CCTV (yet).
