The department did not release video from Shelby’s own cruiser. A department public information officer told ThinkProgress that none exists, because Shelby had not turned her camera on manually and never switched her roof lights into the mode that automatically activates the camera.

This statement is a blatant lie by the department public information officer. If you watch the videos, especially the video from Officer Turnbull’s(second officer on scene) dash cam you will notice as he arrives on scene you can see the Shelby’s (only other police cruiser on scene) roof lights clearly flashing, which means that the dash cam was automatically activated and recording.
