What was the reason the Reddit admins gave for deleting it?

Reason for deletion:

Shows police in a bad light

Quoted from r/undelete thread linked. I assume that itself was quoted from reddit takedown notices.

I think the user was saying that satirically (and it is accurate), but I don't think they actually gave a reason officially

Hmph... well shit I gotta go question my own stupidity for thinking that was real.

I don't think they even officially gave a reason.

The real reason is because it shows cops in a bad light, which is verboten on main reddit subs. I remember the day they made it that way, after that video of that cop shooting that dog went viral...
