JUST-IN: Google asked by US cops to erase evidence of police brutality on YouTube
US cops tried to erase online evidence of brutality

Google has been asked by a US law enforcement agency to remove several videos exposing police brutality from the video sharing service YouTube, the company has revealed in its latest update to an online transparency report.

Another request filed by a different agency required Google to remove videos allegedly defaming law enforcement officials. The two requests were among 92 submissions for content removal by various authorities in the US filed between January and June 2011. Both were rejected by Google along with 27 per cent of the submissions.

The IT giant says the overall number of requests for content removal it receives from governmental agencies has risen, and so has the number of requests to disclose the private data of Google users.

10 more years and you'll need a government issued license to post videos online

It's all about slim chances but a slim chance is better than none.

I'm afraid this is true. At least we'll be safe from the "terrorists".

No such excuse as defamation when recording police on public streets and sidewalks as there are no expectations of privacy at all whatsoever. If they behave like they are supposed to, there won't be reason to get them fired for breaking the law and abusing people.
