How I see it, Part 11; Censorship for the protection of the public

This article is in response to how the internet is being blocked from showing the latest execution of journalist Steven Sotloff.

Right now, because ISPs in the US and the EU are trying to block the latest execution video of Steven Sotloff, the web is abuzz with calls that the video is fake, those who've claimed to have seen the video are saying that the execution is not real for a number of reasons.

The reason for this censorship differs widely depending on where the internet is accessed. In the case of the US, blocking of the latest video is to protect the public from viewing disturbing and graphic material that will cause adverse effects to the public if shown. I can't speak for the reason for the censorship in other places, but the amount of censorship now found in the US has been coming and the level of censorship we see now is a result of other who are making a determination
