YouTube sent a message to Crowder, which he shared on free speech platform X. "We wanted to let you know our team reviewed your content and we think it violates our violent criminal organizations policy," YouTube said, conflating the release of primary source information obtained by an investigative journalist and an actual crime syndicate.
"We know you may not have realized this was a violation of our policies," they continued, "so we're not applying a strike to your channel. However, we ahve remove the following content from YouTube." And the listed the shocking episode containing details about the shooter's motivations that even a FOIA request could not spring loose from an FBI and police department that have refused to make the information public ever since the March 27 shooting.
Hale stole the lives of three children and three adult faculty members of the school after breaking in and opening fire before she was killed by officers responding to the scene. The existence of a manifesto was made known within days of the shooting, but no amount of pressure has been able to pry it loose. The three pagers Crowder revealed show that the deeply disturbed Hale was intent on the murders, hoped to kill more, resented the private school and apparent wealth of the students, and sought death herself.
"We realize this may be disapppointing news," YouTube explained to Crowder, "but it's our job to make sure that YouTube is a safe place for all. If you think we've made a mistake, you can appeal this decision—you'll find more details below."
YouTube detailed their policy for Crowder, saying that "Content that glorifies violent criminal organization or incites violence is not allowed on YouTube." They claimed to review incidents of allaged violations on a "case-by-case basis."
Crowder discovered earlier on Monday that Facebook was also not allowing the content to appear on their site. Crowder works with Rumble, a free speech-oriented streaming platform, where apparently Crowder will drop more information regarding Hale's disturbed, murderous writings on Tuesday.
