YouTube treads fine line over Finnish gunman video

Within a couple of hours of the shootings in Kaujahoki, several videos posted by the YouTube user Wumpscut86 had been taken down by the site.The videos showed a man shooting a pistol on what looked like a firing range.The videos did not appear to contravene the site’s rules covering offensive content which state that: “Graphic or gratuitous violence is not allowed. If your video shows someone getting hurt, attacked, or humiliated, don’t post it. There is zero tolerance for predatory behaviour, stalking, threats, harassment.”
