Video Cameras are bringing accountability to many police departments throughout the world.
That is why I personally am in favour of having cameras in the cockpit of any commercially operated for profit aircraft, with exceptions where warranted. Pilots work with lives of people who put their trust in them (passengers) and people on the ground. A video camera in the cockpit will bring a higher level of accountability.
As a pilot in commercial operation, I am there to do a job. I personally don’t have any expectation of privacy, and I have nothing to hide from. I conduct myself as if someone is watching over my shoulder all the time.

Jesus, take me now.
Hold still, I'm on my way.
@PHOTOFLY: I'm trying to imagine a single tiny new thing that can be learned from this, the worst thing ever to happen ... on the 23rd of October. To this pilot. Not coming up with much.
@photofly, Are you saying there is nothing to learn from this incident?
So challenger, by your logic would the WestJet crew in SXM be charged with being negligent? Or do mistakes happen?
I don't hope this pilot is charged, I just hope if a lesson can be learned that this doesn't have to happen again.
My understanding of the law is we don't charge people in accidents for mistakes. If you get in a fender bender with a school bus, but you weren't on your phone and weren't speeding and it was an honest mistake. Just because it was a school but has zero bearing on the accident... And I would not say I hope they charge this asshole because its children on a school bus.
I think we are just misunderstanding each other, my point is the fact it was a school had little bearing on whether charges will happen. The charges would be based on whether errors were made and if they deem the errors were due to negligence.
@Montado, I had no idea about this near miss incident until you mentioned it. I just read the TSB report and learned quite a bit about it.
My question for you: What did the pilots do that in your opnion would constitute negligence in this case?
