Yesterday, it was discussed somewhat on Greta and LKL, that the Rocha family has said they prefer NOT to have the trial televised.
I did not see any of those shows last night, but I watched the Rocha interview with Katie Couric. On that program Sharon Rocha did in fact say they do not want the proceedings televised. She said it feels too personal to have splashed all over. However, she said they do not have any say in the matter. (Whether unbeknownst to her the victim's family's wishes are taken into account I do not know, but that is what she said.)
Thanks, cooper, I remember her saying that. It is selfish on my part, because I want to see it for myself, and not rely on a reporter to tell us what happened that day in court.
In the cobwebs of my mind, I think I heard some time ago that Garagos does not want cameras. Guess we will see.

Regarding cameras in the courtroom for the trial... My own personal opinion is that so many people in the USA have been very much involved emotionally with the loss of Laci and Conner that it would be an injustice to all of us for no cameras...Since the beginning of this whole thing all has been kept from us and sealed. I think this is an unfair situation because we as citizens had the right to so many documents but as stated have been sealed. I sympathize with the Rochas for their feelings of not wanting it televised but we too need closure and by being able to see the actual trail and not just what is reported in the media is fair and just to us the citizens of USA
