The LAPD ran afoul of YouTube’s moderation, with the platform suspending the official LAPD channel after the division posted video of a violent assault.

The LAPD took to X to elucidate why its official YouTube channel was down:

The YouTube channel for LAPD HQ has been briefly suspended after we posted a video of a brutal assault in Pacific Division asking for the general public’s assist in figuring out the suspects. We’ve appealed the suspension and have been denied.
