I did, and saw this "Facebook Live also caught the aftermath of an
incident in which a police officer shot and killed a man in St Paul,
Minnesota in July 2016."

and then read this "Officer Who Shot Philando Castile Is Charged With
Manslaughter"
https://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/17/us/philando-castile-shooting-minnesota.html?_r=0

The likelihood that would have happened without the pressure that
happened due to Facebook Live is quite low.

If good people don't actively work to find empowering uses of
indifferent technology, then only the a-holes will have all the shiny
toys. 

Also live video streaming from personal mobile phones over the Internet
is not going anywhere, whether on Facebook or not. I suppose you could
just block all UDP packets on known streaming protocol ports, and do DPI
for HLS over HTTP, but that would start to get out of control a bit,
don't you think?
