Law Enforcement Asks Google to Censor YouTube

October 26, 2011 at 6:59 PM Leave a comment

Get a load of this “Transparency Report” Google just posted:

We received a request from a local law enforcement agency to remove YouTube videos of police brutality, which we did not remove. Separately, we received requests from a different local law enforcement agency for removal of videos allegedly defaming law enforcement officials. We did not comply with those requests, which we have categorized in this Report as defamation requests.

That’s it.  That’s all they wrote and we don’t know anything more but ah, I’m willing to bet the “local law enforcement agency” Google references is the government of Oakland, California.  I mean, when you shoot a veteran in the head who has served two tours in Iraq it doesn’t look all that good.  But beyond that, the United States is emulating China, for God’s sake.  In China, searches containing the word “Occupy” have been blocked by by the government on a popular search engine called Sina Weibo.

So I’m waiting for wingers to have a fit. You know, because we don’t want to be like those commie “red” Chinese and censor our media do we?  Hey?  Hey?

Is anyone in a position of power (i.e., a 1%-er) going to denounce this?!
