    To the best of my knowledge, a private individual isn't under any obligation to release video like that to the public. I doubt that she edited it anyway. Whether the news media edited because of length or Active Self Protection did for the same reason doesn't really bother me.
    If something is important enough, you will find a way. If it's not, you will find an excuse.

    The shot that she took may have been the only shot she had, so it may have actually been the “ best shot” lol.

    My only thought is someone felt it might be "instructional" to the uninformed, as if kicking in a door took any instructions.

    I was thinking maybe it opened with just 1 kick and they didn't want people to know how easy it is to kick a door open. Believe it or not people have no idea. My wife had no idea until I showed her some videos. She was then OK with me upgrading the doorframe.

    My mother in law thinks setting a dining room chair in front of the door will help. I proved her wrong by just pushing the door open. I could barely tell anything was there. She still puts a chair in front of the door and says it makes her feel better
