Why did it take six hours for YouTube to take down deranged Justin Mohn’s gruesome video where he showed his own father’s decapitated head as he railed against the federal government in anti-woke rant
Justin Mohn has published a gruesome 14-minute clip on social media platform, YouTube, in which he claims to show the bloody decapitated head of his father – so why did it take so long for the video to be taken down?
Reports indicate that the video was posted at around 5.30pm yesterday in Levittown, Pennsylvania by Justin’s YouTube account @justinmohn6542, which had 115 subscribers.
In the footage, Mohn holds his father’s head in a bloody plastic bag placed in a silver bucket, after declaring: ‘Violence is the only solution to the federal government’s treason.
‘This is the head of Mike Mohn, a federal employee of over 20 years and my father. He is now in hell forever as a traitor to his country.’
This extreme content was on public view for nearly six hours before it was removed, after which it had already been viewed and shared thousands of times.

Similarly, Mohn’s YouTube page was still active the next day – although the video in question had already been removed by then.
Online, the company says: ‘Violent or gory content intended to shock or disgust viewers, or content that encourages others to commit violent acts, is not allowed on YouTube’, and very specifically tells users not to ‘images of putting corpses with serious injuries on YouTube, such as severed limbs.’
Not only did his video show the extreme contents of a dead body, but Mohn called on others to incite violence.
He offered a $1 million reward to anyone who could kill top officials, including FBI Director Christopher Wray, Attorney General Merrick Garland and former Attorney General Bill Barr.
As well as calling on family members living with federal employees to kill them.
The site’s online policy clearly states that you must not ‘incite others to commit acts of violence against individuals or a particular group of people.’
To detect these extremist channels, the platform uses a combination of algorithms and relies on people to report content that doesn’t align with their policies.
It said: ‘We remove content that violates our policies as quickly as possible, using a combination of humans and machine learning to detect potentially problematic content on a massive scale.
“Additionally, we rely on the YouTube community as well as experts in our Trusted Flagger program to help us detect potentially problematic content by reporting it directly to us.”
YouTube has been approached for comment.

DailyMail.com has chosen to obscure images of the clip, which are too disturbing to reproduce. Officially, the police called Michael Mohn’s death ‘suspicious’.
LevitttownNow said Mohn was arrested after 9 p.m. ET Tuesday in Fort Indiana Gap in central Pennsylvania, about two hours from his last known residence, while driving his father’s car. He will be brought back to Bucks County, where his father was found dead.
The police first located his car and then arrested the suspect nearby.
They confirmed the victim was beheaded and that the YouTube video was part of the same investigation.
Police were first called to the home just after 7 p.m. Tuesday and found a headless body in his bathroom, Middletown Police Chief Joe Bartorilla said.
Mohn is listed as living there with his father; his mother Denice, 63; his brother Zachary (35) and his sister Stephanie (38).
His father reportedly owned two businesses – a cleaning company and a literacy initiative, neither of which appear to be connected to the federal government.
