The only reason this business owner did not want the video shown is because they hold a terrible policy of keeping the days cash in the tills overnight. This is usually because they have not budgeted for a safe or the hired help working that evening was not entrusted with the combination. It may also be against franchise policy rules to do so, and they were reprimanded from corporate.
What is so secretive about the video? It took place in a PUBLIC area, it would only be equivalent to the police releasing a video of a burglary from outside your personal home, not in your bedroom.
I would hope that any evidence that investigators deem beneficial to release to the public is all that is needed. If you don’t like it, then why should they help you out? Did an acquaintance to the owner commit this burglary? hmmm.
I am curious what the insurer of this business owner thinks of his opinion and security practices?

If I were this business owner I’d be happy to have this video out there. I guess it is better not to show how the guy got in, in case there are any criminals in the audience.
I don’t think it should hurt to show how the guy broke in. One would think that once a business owner learned how someone broke it they would find some way to prevent anyone else from breaking in using the same methods regardless of whether or not the prospective burglar saw it on a video or not.
