LAPD YouTube channel suspended for posting violent content

YouTube has suspended the Los Angeles Police Department’s channel after a video showing a brutal attack was taken down.

LAPD originally said that their account had been “temporarily suspended after [posting] a video of a brutal attack” in the department’s Pacific Division shortly before 11:45 a.m. Saturday morning.

“We have appealed the suspension and have been denied,” LAPD said in their post to X, formerly Twitter.

For those not in Los Angeles, there is a ton of crime happening and at this point the Police are starting to get desperate.

They went as far as to post for help on YouTube, which breaks YouTube’s content guidelines.

Things get interesting when a private company has the power to silence and moderate a government body. The police are being policed by YouTube in this case.
