    Facebook is committed to remaining free, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Wednesday as he defended his company's place in Silicon Valley, NBC News reported.

    Facebook has helped decentralize society, Zuckerberg said in conversation with Harvard law professor Jonathan Zittrain. It's the first in a series of public discussions Zuckerberg has committed to.

    "We want to give everyone a voice. We want everyone to be able to connect with who they care about," Zuckerberg said.

    The discussion comes as Facebook faces scrutiny from politicians around the world over its data privacy practices.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
