Trying 9/11 terror suspects in NYC courts: Is allowing victims to see trials important?

  • Closure is the key.

    It is very important for victims to be able to put a face on their attackers and to be given the clarity of closure that seeing the perpetrator on trial can afford them. For many victims of terror attacks, fear is an incredible factor to overcome, and this may allow them some latitude.

  • No I do not see how it is important

    I can understand that the victims may want closure, but having them actually watch the trials will most likely sway the jury to lean towards the guilty verdict because of the emotions brought out by the victims watching. There needs to be a just and unbiased sense in the room at all times so that they can make sure it is a just and fair trial.
