I've recently read over a police report on the Umpqua Community College shooting, and it mentioned that there were four video surveillance cameras operating at the parking lot of Snyder Hall on the day of the shooting. It then lists the events that occurred on camera.
9:30a, I viewed video surveillance of Snyder Hall parking lot which was recorded on October 1st, 2015 and noted the following : (ReferBSE01/AKE01 The video times have not been synched with DCSO dispatch)Camera [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (captures parking area southwest of Snyder Hall)

It's been almost 3 years now, and we haven't even seen at least a single image from either four of those cameras. We seen the pictures of the shooter taken from the FedEx driver, but nothing from the cameras. I would understand if the video was too gory, but it does not mention anyone being shot on camera or any blood. So I ask this simple question. Why haven't they released the video? Is there just no point on releasing it, or is it something else?
