No. This is not a public spectacle. And don't give me the idealogical arguments. A huge portion of society rings off of public shame and humiliation. This is a ugly fact. Btw how long do you think it will before they errode this law to blur and distort voices of the victims or witnesses so we can hear the "REALTIME" situation unfold. Screw that part, we get to hear all the nitty gritty details with easy access? Sounds great... I can think of a few more social issues that should be addressed before this bullshit of social mentality education is introduced. GREAT. FUCKING GREAT. We lost our true privacy around 10-15 years ago in my opinion. You're fucking guilty or pleading for your life if you make it into the courts eye. SOCIETY has a dominate angry mob mentality. You guys might not give a shit about people on trial or who are trying to appeal a court decision or whatever.. Such a bad idea. I know they're doing it in America.. and I bet 99% of you guys are all honest working ect.. But this is a very disturbing method of indirect punishment in itself. Freaken judges seeing people proxied through a camera, now this... Please subject me to this indirect deterrant mentality. Fucking world now it's not just taking on the law, it's emphasising taking on the whole society even more. Atleast it was more low keyed..
