What would be good at this point?
Rather have a mechanical issue than a suicidal pilot

Why is it that in the year 2015, there is no live video of the cockpit being transmitted (and recorded) to an air traffic controller base? Wouldn't this end all speculation about what happened, and give a clear picture?

Also, why are there no bathrooms in the cockpit? Wouldn't it be better if pilots did not need to exit the cockpit for any reason during the flight?

There should be live video cameras as well as a control that should allow the plane to be controlled remotely such as a a UAV.

Why is it that in the year 2015, there is no live video of every operating room being transmitted (and recorded) to a medical malpractice investigator base? Wouldn't this end all speculation about what happened, and give a clear picture?

Or insert ANY profession where there is a possibility of human mess-ups (namely any profession involving humans).

Do you have any idea how much data that would take to record, transmit, and store from every cockpit in the air?

No, how much. More than storing a picture of every mail piece or package that goes through USPS?

Don't pay the pilots, just let them MS for an hour at each city they land at.

Video is way more then still images and that's just recording and storing, live streaming the  data from anywhere in world would be a fortune and would demand a whole new infrastructure.
