How reasonable is this?

I cannot believe the BBC being dragged down to this level.

How can you name a potential suspect in a case like this? A suspect who police say there is not enough evidence to arrest (should they even be saying anything)? What sort of society have we moved into?

Of course, it's not just the BBC - it seems there isn't a major media outlet that hasn't been party to this. Anyone who has participated in this "outing" should be ashamed. This is no better than medieval justice.

I don't always agree with Andrew Collins on his views (in fact, rarely), but I think this blog post sums up my views well on this whole sad affair, and it all seems to be heading in even worse directions.
