In a recent article from the BBC google has claimed that its removal requests have went up 71%

BBC article

In the article it links to the transparency report:

Where you can find the government requests:

Under the most recent US one it sais

We received a request from a local law enforcement agency to remove YouTube videos of police brutality, which we did not remove. Separately, we received requests from a different local law enforcement agency for removal of videos allegedly defaming law enforcement officials. We did not comply with those requests, which we have categorized in this Report as defamation requests.

So doesn't really look like google are removing things on a whim, as you probably know there are still tons of police brutality vids on there...
