Police in riot gear stormed a rally in Alameda County on Thursday, removing hundreds of protesters by truck. An initial hearing in court over a shooting at a Walmart supermarket took place where a policeman shot and killed a black man last year.
The discussion with the police was not distorted into a verbal argument. Shelby saw him being filmed ‘Empty space‘Taylor Swift Op. The activists responded enthusiastically and asked why they did this. “I know you can film anything and you can’t post it on YouTube,” he snapped.
YouTube does not allow users to upload music videos unless they own the copyright. Video Agent, owned by Google parent company Alphabet, has smart software to detect violations. Often the video in question immediately turns black. That is the purpose of Shelby.
Only his gesture recedes. The video has not yet been removed from YouTube and has reached nearly 800,000 views on Twitter. His superiors were not exactly pleased with Shelby’s action. Internal affairs are investigating his actions.
