(via Wil Wheaton on Tumblr) CBS's KCAL News at 9 recently reported on a case of police brutality against a crowd of protesters, some of whom were children. They fired either rubber bullets or bean bags into the crowd, and one officer let loose a dog, who attacked a woman carrying her child.
When that news showed up on YouTube, though, CBS had it removed, via a copyright claim. I can't embed it, but Occupy Iowa's tumblr has a video, linked here, along with this accompanying message:
The YouTube corporation and CBS have now censored the original video of Anaheim cops shooting at children. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MST4RhWdlMQ
“This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by CBS.”
Spread links to the mirrors. Keep firing.
CBS might have removed the video to protect the police officers. They might have removed the video to protect their ability to make advertising revenue on their content. Either way, the decision is unacceptable. News is news. If it's not available, it's useless.
