Question.

(I apologize for the cynicism in advance)

Why is this case televised and displayed all over the news and the Tsarnaev/James Holmes/Jared Lee Loughner cases are not? Why do we only get silly courtroom drawings of the suspects in these high profile cases coupled with vague details regarding the trials leaked to limited news agencies from less than transparent insider sources? Do we not see these cases on television because the cases against the suspects lack sufficient evidence which would subsequently further embarrass someone who benefits from these cases being kept under wraps? Is there not a public interest in these cases? Do television stations not think ratings demands would be met by televising these cases? Don't they think that the American public is just seething with impatience at the prospect of making their way to their social networking sites to spew hatred at these men and demand state violence be utilized in the name of justice? It seems to me that many people would watch these televised court proceedings. I would. Why can we not watch the trial of Jared Lee Loughner, an alleged mass murderer, but we can see all we want and more of the George Zimmerman case? I would like to further speculate over whether James Holmes attends his court proceedings with massive amounts of drugs injected into his body unwillingly. Why am I denied this speculation and observation but given gratuitous insight into a case I have much less interest in? I don't care to speculate on George Zimmerman's weight gain. I would rather spat conjecture regarding the healing or lack thereof of Tsarnaev's neck wound. Why am I denied this entertainment? Why must I have justice for Trayvon Martin shoveled down my throat from this direction and that when I start my computer when I'd rather laugh as I watch alleged witnesses to the Sandy Hook massacre squirm while testifying? Though I guess Lanza's dead so there won't be any courtroom drama involving his case. Sigh. This is what I want to see. There's no justice in this world if I can only watch one high profile case on television like it's game 7 of the world series. I want to see them all.
