Yo-Yo-ing YouTube & Mucky Madam Maxwell

After reinstating ‘Shaun Attwood’s True Crime Channel’ yesterday, in yo-yo-like fashion it has now been taken down again; are mucky madam Ghislaine Maxwell’s PR peddlers targeting his work?

Yesterday, YouTube did the right thing and reinstated crusading crime commentator Shaun Attwood to their channel.


Today, they reversed their decision after a concerted campaign by his critics and once again, this morning, the Shaun Attwood True Crime Channel has been “terminated for violating YouTube’s Community Guidelines.”


In a missive to Attwood, seen by The Steeple Times today, YouTube ridiculously justified their actions by stating:


“We have reviewed your content and found severe or repeated violations of our Community Guidelines. Because of this, we have removed your channel from YouTube.”


“We know that this is probably very upsetting news, but it’s our job to make sure that YouTube is a safe place for all. If we think that a channel severely violates our policies, we take it down to protect other users on the platform – but if you believe that we’ve made the wrong call, you can appeal this decision. You’ll find more information about the policy in question and how to submit an appeal below.”


Commenting this morning on Twitter, Ash Meikle, guest booker and lead researcher for Shaun Attwood’s True Crime Channel remarked of Twitter’s approach:


“Your inconsistencies, lack of clarity and general poor guidance for content creators needs revisiting. How can you reinstate a channel one day and remove it the next without explanation after apologising and saying it was a mistake? Complete overhaul of policies needed.”


Shaun Attwood is a good ‘citizen’ of YouTube and a respected educator about the perils and pitfalls of criminality. Proof of that is provided in the fact that ‘TedX Talks’ – which has 32 million subscribers – invited him to give a TEDx talk in January 2017. A video of that has been viewed 1.8 million times on YouTube and liked 39,000 times also. On that basis alone, YouTube should realise the error of their decision and reinstate this campaigner’s channel once again.

Responding directly to YouTube with yet another appeal, Attwood himself added:


“Yesterday, my terminated channel was ruled in compliance and reinstated due to a successful appeal. Today it has gone again for the same reasons. Here’s the appeal:”


“The violations revolve around news/educational coverage of high-profile sex-abuse cases documented in the media, e.g. Epstein. Your guidelines provide an exception for debating ‘high profile officials or leaders: Content featuring debates or discussions of topical issues concerning individuals who have positions of power…’”


“After the 1st strike, I requested guidance from YouTube. None came. I visited Google HQ in London, only to be told to contact support. As a precautionary measure, I deleted 40% of my channel, almost 60 million views. I completely stopped covering the Epstein case, with no intention to resume. I educated my team on cyberbullying and interviewed a cyberbullying activist.”


“It goes against the spirit of YouTube to bombard a good citizen of 13 years with multiple strikes on old deleted videos.”


Clearly, as the mucky madam Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial for the enticement of minors and sex trafficking of underage girls for her on-off paedophile lover Jeffrey Epstein approaches, her PR team are upping their efforts to silence those speaking out against her. Today, we ask: “Are Miss Maxwell’s well-connected supporters – whom number the pompous PR peddler Brian Basham and the potty political prattler Jay Beecher – attempting to put a stop to those covering her case?”


Today also, we urge readers to support Shaun Attwood in his efforts to permanently get his YouTube channel back by tweeting @TeamYouTube. Please ask them to explain why they have once again terminated Shaun Attwood’s True Crime Channel and please ask them to reinstate it.


Shaun Attwood
Shaun Attwood is someone who has turned his life around and after serving his sentence in America has spent time educating others about why crime ultimately doesn’t pay. His YouTube channel is informative and its removal yet again illustrates that this social media giant isn’t policing its users in a fair or correct way. Attwood does not merit de-platforming; he should instead be promoted.

  1. Sympathy to Sean firstly this is a silly state of affairs. I am not at all surprised and fairness, proportionality and appropriateness do not (I suspect) come into it and so please do not beat yourself up Sean looking for it. There are people in the highest positions involved in a very naughty way in the stories and characters that you so doggedly and effectively pursue. They will be very nervous at how events soon play out and you can be absolutely sure that a plan of play-out is in place. They will not want certain people and events highlighted or indeed their theater at all influenced. History bursts with examples of Cartelists manoeuvrings to totally distort, assimilate or change major events and things to their will and dominance. J P Morgan wanted to cover the world in copper and so he completely stopped the free energy that Tesla could provide from the ionosphere and we could have all had for the last near 100 years. He, Rockefeller and Carnegie moved to totally dominate the emerging medical and Pharmaceutical sector. There are astounding examples of interference against emerging cures for diseases that they regarded as highly profitable ‘maintenance’ illness. Rockefeller dominated amongst much else BigOil with a similar interest to swallow up emerging technologies that threatened it. When people got to notice that these handful were controlling all the money they hastily created The Federal Reserve (which actually is a private concern that they still controlled). Education, media, politics, tobacco et al and all a similar story to this day (which hosts all the modern three letter agencies that now share this mind-set). My point is that all of today’s mega-platforms (such as is playing with Sean at the moment) are falling over themselves to accommodate the demands of these agencies. That is why cookies and constant updates are almost happening by the hour so as to make sure that they know your current inside-leg measurement etc. I suspect that influence does not stop there and if for instance there exists an irritant to a naughty President or twain there is an established pathway to scratch it.
