JCS Criminal Psychology Channel Quits YouTube



JCS Criminal Psychology, the popular YouTube true crime channel with 4.7 million subscribers, says that YouTube has removed several videos for objectionable content, despite thousands of much worse graphic videos existing. The anonymous owner of the channel has decided to exit YouTube for a different platform that has not yet been announced.

JCS has earned millions of views for its informational commentary on criminal interrogations. It also spawned several copycat channels in which amateurs offer their opinions on criminal psychology.

Do you watch JCS? Are you into true crime? What YouTube channels have you been watching lately?

Well now I feel dumb for "saving" most of their content for later lol
Oh man, that sucks. I watched like all of their videos. I love the dude who does the voiceover.

I'm surprised it's considered violent at all. There's little to no violence other than them talking about violence. I watched a medic video the other night where he shows a woman get shot in the neck and bleeds out in a few seconds. And what about Nightline showing all the blood and gore of that EMS show?
It's outrageous, he's talking through interrogation recordings and how detectives use certain tactics to corner psychopaths/murderers. The guy should absolutely post elsewhere. YT are idiots
What?? These videos are fascinating, and not violent, or anything excessively violent.

What is the underlying issue here? Like why this channel, now?
I feel super conflicted about JCS because his videos are so well done, but it's opened the door for a bunch of nobodies who have no qualifications to comment on body language, speech, and a bunch of other pseudoscience that can really fuck up how people perceive guilt and innocence.
well there isn't proof that the person/people who write(s) the script for jcs even have qualifications of that sort either
True...

Some of the things JCS says is complete and utter bullshit under the name of "investigation technique" or "psychological mechanism" or whatever. He's really just another true crime enthusiast with a voice that's deep enough to make him sound like he knows shit. His editing is really really good though I'll give him that. The other copycat channels CANNOT pull that off in their dreams.

YES. There are a number of people who were exonerated for crimes that true crime loudmouths still insist are guilty, based solely on their facial expressions, tone of voice, body language, etc. Such as Julie Rea, who was originally convicted of her young son's murder based on shoddy police work and "blood spatter analysis." Then she was exonerated when serial killer Tommy Lynn Sells confessed to the crime. But some people are still convinced that she's guilty because she "acts" guilty.

It's frightening that some of these people might wind up serving on a jury, if they haven't already.

I don't watch any YouTube true crime channels, but the mention of copycat criminal psychologists reminded me of something.

I can't stand Candace Whateverhernameis on all the ID channel shows, especially Deadly Women. She says very clearly scripted lines like they're legitimate psychological analysis of people. She has got to be a contributing factor to the armchair psychologists/detectives who are just making shit up on social media.
I don’t like her either for those same reasons. I hate all of the shows she’s on because they editorialize the cases so much.
I know someone who was the subject of one of those Deadly Women episodes, and everything they said was exaggerated or outright wrong.
I think Deadly Women and a few other ID shows have the disclaimer that the stories are sometimes changed for dramatic effect. Deadly Women especially seems more camp than serious.

Candace i love because of the bad puns "She went from a good scout......to a bad scout" and the fact that in every episode they refer to her as Former Criminal Profiler Candace DeLong

Aphrodite Jones show was better. I liked her coverage of the Casey Anthony trial. Her book on Shonda Shearer was nuts.

Candice Delong, she was the inspiration for Clarice in Silence of the Lambs

Even if JCS did show anything graphic, based on the reasons Youtube provided, their videos should not be blocked. They are documentaries with the whole point being to offer context to the events described. Youtube has become controlled by their tech, I swear. There is no way a human could review JCS and come away with it being gratuitous.
What YouTube channels have you been watching lately?
I’m still deep in “Chateau YouTube”, only now I also lurk the Tattle.life threads discussing various Chateau YouTubers & their Patreon earnings.

Also, I’ve mostly dropped off listening to true crime podcasts, but someone in an ONTD comment recently mentioned Scam Goddess so I started listening over the last work weekend & it’s absolutely hilarious!
his vids never really showed anything graphic though? so weird they'd go after him

So many JSC ripoffs are SO BAD it sucks
YouTube as a company just sucks. I would hate to be a YouTuber and have my livelihood depend on them.
they've done so much to screw over creators over the years. one of the few people i follow there keeps talking about how they keep burying his vids even to his followers. and many of these changes happen suddenly and quietly.

(not that i feel too terrible for most of these people but yt does mess with livelihoods and play mind games)
his channel was the BEST so informative and interesting. that one kid who was faking being insane was sooo bad at it woof.

this is such a shame, there was literally no graphic content at all on his channel. he barely even goes into detail on the crime, it's all about the interrogation

youtube sucks
omg I went to watch the chris watts videos literally yesterday and noticed they were gone. I guess those are the ones that got flagged. Weird because there are tons of videos about Chris Watts on Youtube. This sucks, I really like their channel.
their Chris Watts videos were so good. shame they're gone.
Why did they shut down their patreon to go back to youtube? Isn’t the constant flagging and demonetization why they went to patreon in the first place?
It seems like you can watch his videos on web archive if they get removed from YouTube https://archive.org/details/jcs-criminal-psychology
thank you!
omg that video "actual discussion with youtube live support" i'm losing it lol

Those videos had so many views....I bet whoever runs the channel is pissed
Holy shit.
you can literally find videos of people being murdered on YT, this is stupid

on another note, dr. grande is my other favorite dry, scientific true crime channel. i like that his videos are shorter too
No one does shade like Dr. Grande
