Our view: Open minds needed on cameras in courts
Just over a year ago, Illinois Supreme Court Chief Justice Thomas Kilbride announced the launch of a pilot project to allow still and video cameras in courtrooms.
Many judicial circuit districts immediately volunteered to be a part of it. One year since the announcement, 25 counties in nine judicial circuits throughout Illinois have allowed cameras in the courtroom.
Dozens of criminal cases have been recorded, from small counties where a serial killer was being tried to large suburban counties such as DuPage, where Schaumburg police officers are charged with robbing drug dealers.
