Our View: Thumbs up to cameras in the courtrooms

Thumbs up: To the first media photos taken of court proceedings at the DeKalb County Courthouse in generations. On Tuesday, a Daily Chronicle photographer shot photographs from a hearing for those accused of hazing in the death of NIU freshman David Bogenberger. Reporters also captured audio and video recordings of the proceedings, all without compromising the dignity and order of the courtroom. Courts are public spaces, and public access to the state’s justice system will only increase the public’s familiarity with and trust in the system.
