  • Trials should be televised.

    Trials should be televised. It allows for people at home to really see the inside of a court room, And our criminal justice system. It shows us how a court system works, How trials are held, And how justice can be served FAIRLY. That is why I think Trials should be televised

  • It should be

    So, People will be more educated than being goof sitting in a chair and playing video games. Thats all.




    Trials can also be divided by the type of dispute at issue.

    Criminal trial Edit

    The Old Bailey in London (in 1808) was the venue for more than 100, 000 criminal trials between 1674 and 1834.
    A criminal trial is designed to resolve accusations brought (usually by a government) against a person accused of a crime. In common law systems, Most criminal defendants are entitled to a trial held before a jury. Because the state is attempting to use its power to deprive the accused of life, Liberty, Or property, The rights of the accused afforded to criminal defendants are typically broad. The rules of criminal procedure provide rules for criminal trials.

    Civil trial Edit
    A civil trial is generally held to settle lawsuits or civil claims—non-criminal disputes. In some countries, The government can both sue and be sued in a civil capacity. The rules of civil procedure provide rules for civil trials.

    Administrative hearing and trial Edit
    Although administrative hearings are not ordinarily considered trials, They retain many elements found in more "formal" trial settings. When the dispute goes to judicial setting, It is called an administrative trial, To revise the administrative hearing, Depending on the jurisdiction. The types of disputes handled in these hearings is governed by administrative law and auxiliarily by the civil trial law.

    Labor trial Edit
    Main article: Labor and employment law
    Labor law (also known as employment law) is the body of laws, Administrative rulings, And precedents which address the legal rights of, And restrictions on, Working people and their organizations. As such, It mediates many aspects of the relationship between trade unions, Employers and employees. In Canada, Employment laws related to unionized workplaces are differentiated from those relating to particular individuals. In most countries however, No such distinction is made. However, There are two broad categories of labour law. First, Collective labour law relates to the tripartite relationship between employee, Employer and union. Second, Individual labour law concerns employees' rights at work and through the contract for work. The labour movement has been instrumental in the enacting of laws protecting labour rights in the 19th and 20th centuries. Labour rights have been integral to the social and economic development since the industrial revolution.

  • Yes they should

    Criminal who break apart families should be watched when they are being sentenced to prison. In the Florida shooting everyone in America saw what happened and the families of those who were in the school want to watch the shooter be sentenced. They lost their privacy when they did something terrible to other.

  • Well i dont know

    They be ugly bro...Like fr they not cool bro. KMS bro.They be on T.V. like im not even lyon. My boy Joe Brown be serving dishes of justice and washes criminals out. You dont know my boi bro. Post up if u report me. Im chillin watching Judge Judy and it be lit

  • Yes, all the way. Let America see what happens in the daily courtroom.

    Yes, all the way. Let America see what happens in the daily courtroom. The Constitution states clearly that trials should be public and for a very good reason. We need to see what happens behind closed doors at any trial in America. I wish Court TV would restart. I really enjoyed it.

  • Criminals feel more shame

    If these criminals are being accused of rape or murder, the whole entire world would watch the trial. Even when he gets out of jail and back to his normal life, people will always know him as a criminal. Therefore ppl would fear the society judging them and rethink their actions.

  • An Honest Government

    If we have cameras in a courtroom, the judiciary branch is faced to be honest. You never know who might be watching that televised trial. And hence, you will feel more obligated to be honest. In example, if you were on trial defending your case and the opposing criminal told a lie, a witness could be watching the trial and defend your case!

  • Trials should be televised

    It is our right to have a public trial. I find it to be very important because the general population must hav acccss to all parts of the trial process to be sure that laws are followed and the highest standards are kept Televised trials give access to everyone especially the handicapped. I think it will lower the crime rate because people will be fearful of having their faces shown on TV I feel that it will also reduce the amount of waste that goes into a trial and will keep all the lawyers and judges to high standards.

  • Keep the Government Honest

    The judicial branch is very serious and weighty function in which judges exercise an important principle inside the community. Judges, who are responsible to control trails, are exposed to change the shape of the trail to which they may place innocent people in jail or they might free criminals to our society. As a result, when the courtroom being recorded and shown to the public, it contributes to achieve fair and impartial trial. When judge are aware that they are televised, they apply serious attention and consideration in their obligation. Therefore, it is significant to learn how courtrooms being operated, and to show how justice being applied. Mos almatrafy

  • Court proceedings are a right of public information.

    In every city there is a police blotter which list crimes that occur within the city. At the court house, there is a notification section which lists the proceedings of the day. Unless it is a highly publicized case, any citizen can walk in and observe the trial in progress. It is our right as citizens within this society to know what is happening and how it is being handled by our elected officials. Ironically, we go to the polls to elect judges that we know nothing about in regards to their history of judgment and how they will best assist our community with the issues within it.

  • Criminal trials should not be televised because although we are guaranteed the right to a speedy trial, there is nothing in the constitution saying the trials must be made public.

    Criminal trials should not be televised because although we are guaranteed the right to a speedy trial, there is nothing in the constitution saying the trials must be made public. Any of the participants in a trial which is being broadcast are aware they're being watched. Being aware you're being watched very well could alter the behaviour of those involved. Lawyers could be more concerned with celebrity, and so could judges. Televised trials can be turned into a free-for-all with people wanting to get attention, and it takes away from the purpose of the trial which is to find a person guilty or innocent.

  • I do not believe trials should be televised.

    Criminal trials are a very serious matter and not something to be slapped on TV as entertainment for the masses. People can hear the outcomes of trials, and I think can gain access to records of trials and that should be enough. Broadcasting a trial on TV could endanger certain people who may prefer that their identities remain secret. For example if a high profile 'criminal' was found not guilty, the jury members may fear for themselves if their identity is shown to the public.

  • People have a basic right to privacy.

    As a general rule cameras and video recording devices aren't allowed inside court rooms during court proceedings for the basic reason that peoples rights still need to be respected even if they broke the law. People have a right to privacy. Just because you broke a rule does not take that away. There are trials that are open to the public and if someone is truly interested in a case they should go to the court and watch it. It is wrong to televise a trial with out the consensus for those involved.

  • Criminal trials should not be televised, because they bring the public into a controlled social situation.

    The reason that jurors are not supposed to know the facts of a case is so that personal judgment will not affect their job as a juror, to judge the facts. Televising a trial cheapens the entire judicial system by making it a spectacle, and will open up the media to scrutinizing the defendant, the plaintiff/prosecutor and the facts of the case. A trial is a controlled social situation to allow for fairness and justice, and if it becomes a TV show, there is no point in even doing it.

  • I don't think criminal trials should be televised.

    I don't think criminal trials should be televised because everyone is presumed innocent initially and it is up to the prosecutor to prove guilt, so these people are not criminals at the point of the trial though a lot of people will assume so just because they are on trial. Also, when people see these people on TV, they will all think they are guilty.

  • Televising criminal trials makes the system unjust.

    Televising criminal trials makes the system unjust by corrupting what should be an objective review of facts. Judges, jurors and attorneys end up playing for the camera when they should be concentrating on the case. Televising trials is not justified by keeping the process transparent. The downside of corrupting the process offsets the benefits of keeping the people informed of the process.

  • One more step in reality television and the promotion of violence? no.

    People have a right to privacy. Media has a way of swaying public opinion one way or another, and the only result would be masses of uninformed people voicing their opinions on matters about which they have no expertise. Lives of innocent people would be ruined if public opinion decided they were guilty even though a jury found them innocent due to lack of evidence. This should absolutely be prevented from happening.

  • Allowing the Court of Public Opinion to judge first corrupts justice.

    I do not think it it fair to the potentially innocent defendant or the accuser or anyone associated to be assaulted by paparazzi on top of the stress of a trial. Once the news sensationalizes a case the jury selection becomes extremely difficult as everyone has heard something about the case. I am all in Favor of allowing people to watch a trial in person if they do not reveal the details of the case until after the verdict is reached JUST LIKE JURORS. Even televising trials after the fact would give the people a sense of what occurs in the Justice system. However as it stands only the most sensational and divisive trials are on the news. NO Names should be used in any forum until the case has been resolved for the safety of both parties.

  • Not reality TV

    The court room should not be turned into entertainment. Lawyers and judges are more likely to alter their behavior and appeal to their audience if they know a trial is being televised. We must protect the prestige a court room holds and not break the traditions of a court proceedings.

  • I love sublime.

    Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh were childhood friends. Having grown up in the same Long Beach neighborhood, Eric's father, Billy Wilson taught Gaugh how to read music and play the drums. Gaugh and Wilson together with future Sublime manager, Michael Happoldt, formed a three-piece punk band called The Juice Bros during their high school years. About this time, Bradley Nowell, who had recently dropped out of University of California, Santa Cruz, joined the band. Nowell helped introduce Gaugh and Wilson to reggae and ska, who at the time listened exclusively to punk rock.[6]

    Sublime played its first gig on the Fourth of July, 1988 in a small club. Music venues were skeptical of the band's eclectic musical fusion and many refused to book the band. In response, the band created their own music label, Skunk Records, and told venues that they were "Skunk Records recording artists", which helped the band seem more accomplished and subsequently book more shows.[6] For the next several years, the group focused primarily on playing at parties and small clubs throughout Southern California with local ska bands such as Smokestacks, No Doubt and Skeletones. The trio recorded a few songs and put forth a number of short demos.

    In February 1990, Nowell adopted an abused dalmatian puppy from a shelter and named him "Louie" after his grandfather.[7] Louie Nowell, King Louie, or "Lou Dog" as he was called, became something of a mascot for the band. Lou Dog was often allowed to wander around the stage during the band's concert performances. One of Sublime's early club venues in 1990 was at a downtown club in Long Beach called Toe Jam. This Club was owned and operated by David Rice, James Walker, Jason Burch and Jeff King. A private party was held in February 1991 at Toe Jam for one of the owners. Special thanks can be found for Toe Jam and the owners on the back of the later produced album, 40oz. To Freedom. In late 1990, music student Michael "Miguel" Happoldt approached the band, offering to let the band record in the studio at the school where Happoldt was studying. The band enthusiastically agreed and trespassed into the school at night, where they recorded from midnight to seven in the morning.[7] The recording session resulted in the popular cassette tape called Jah Won't Pay the Bills, which was released in 1991 and featured songs that would later appear on the band's future albums. The tape helped the band gain a grassroots following throughout Southern California
