    Should we let magnotta go to trial quietly?

    he wants fame at any cost , so he killed people, cut them up and posted it on the net. wouldn't leaving him alone and letting his trial go by unnoticed be a perfect way of starting his punishment?

    You have an excellent point, but when has the media shown any wisdom, lately?

    An interesting story, everyone wants to know with the media drooling all over the juice, but its horrendous and the people got the right to know, even if its hammered down their throat

    This is actually a brilliant idea.  Have him silently executed with no press involved whatsoever.

      You're being ironic, right? Keeping an eye on government is one one of the few important things our media still finds a little time to do in between reality shows and ads.

    True enough.

    We do have closed trials and legal presiding, and sequester juries away from the public.

    They can do the same here, so yes.

      No closed trials in the US with very few exceptions, mostly to protect the defendant's rights.

    I have only just this minute looked at the You Tube video, and read the reports about this case....and it leaves me with a worry.   Call it the "Lynch-mob mentality."

    He's been accused.  He's been arrested.  We would like to think the police know what they are doing, and would not have arrested him "if there was any doubt."

    But what if, just if, the police had got it wrong?   Put yourself in that man's position.  Supposing you knew you were innocent, yet no one would believe you, because they had seen you being escorted, handcuffed, by police across the tarmac.   

    I am not saying this man is innocent or guilty.   The Courts are set up to make such decisions and judgments.   What we, the general public, have to do is make sure the persons put up there behind the bench to do the judging, are worthy of that position and worthy of our respect and trust.  The process in the choice of attorneys begins with democracy, not dictatorships.

    I say let the guy go to court and be accorded the process of justice.

      It's people like you who make democracy and freedom possible.

      i agree but we could do it quietly so if he is guilty, he doesn't get the fame he says he wants.

      Agreed, I see your point.  It's possibly a double-edged sword.  Limit how much the press is allowed to publish, limit the fame. Constrict and control the press, endanger our freedom.

    The media just needs to do what they are gonna do. I really don't want them thinking they are going to administer justice. I trust them to pander, to exploit, to sensationalize. I certainly don't trust them to have the wisdom to decide what is fit for us to see. Magnotta and the media are at different ends of the brainless do-anything-for-fame spectrum, but they are all on the same spectrum.
