(Phoenix, AZ) -- A judge in Arizona rules that mental exams of accused Tuscon shooter Jared Loughner should not be videotaped. 

Loughner, 22, is accused of a mass shooting in which he allegedly tried to assassinate U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona.

According to the New York Post, Loughner's lawyers filed a motion requesting Federal District Court Judge Larry Burns to order hospital officials at Springfield's Federal Medical Center to capture all clinical proceedings of Loughner's health.

That was denied Thursday. The judge says there's no basis to question the impartiality of staff at FedMed.

The judge likely thinks it’ll end up copied and eventually sold to some network.

Frankly, this kid will never spend a single day in prison for the rest of his life. He’s a mental hospital ‘player’ and can never be released as long as he lives.

What should bother people....there are probably a thousand of these Loughner-like folks walking around and could lose control at any time of the day. It’s simply luck we don’t see this kind of thing daily.
