Why should they be??
Our right to a speedy PUBLIC trial is guaranteed by the 6th Amendment. If and how the proceedings are made public should be left to the defendant, not a judge. If he/she chooses to waive that right, then no cameras in the courtroom.
Duh..... I don't understand the question. Isn't it up to the Federal judge? What am I missing?
If the question means in a Federal courthouse in general, yes. If in a courtroom, only at the judges descretion.
Yes, unless there is some need to protect the identity of a witness. And, should that need arise, I would ask why in the hell that witness was in the courtroom and not testifying over some obfuscated means.
because another amendment allows the accused to see his accusors.
Of course they should! That way, we could get a picture of little Johnny as he gets sentenced to lengthy and hard time in a federal prison. We can get some 8 x10 color glossies and send them to all the relatives. It will make the whole family so proud!
