The u.s government doesn’t want its citizens to see how badly the police are brutalizing people.
Among other things, US authorities got in touch with Google when they wanted to kill some YouTube videos showing police brutality. Google states:
We received a request from a local law enforcement agency to remove YouTube videos of police brutality, which we did not remove.

In total the US courts, government and police asked for 113 videos to be taken down, one because it showed “government criticism”.
