It's no surprise that Oakland has been the headline of an Occupy incident involving a protestor getting critically injured by a "non lethal" force. Despite receiving several requests from local different law enforcement agencies to remove videos "allegedly defaming law enforcement officials," google has apparently refused to take them down. Taken from the Official Google Enterprise Blog, the Senior Manager of Global Compliance at Google Enterprise articulated the following about their transparency report. The second paragraph has been taken from an actual transparency report.
“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.”
