Innocent until prove guilty
The system is broken.
Allegedly the media are allowed to report anything they like. It has been rumoured they can get away with anything, as long as it might be true. They don't really care as long as someone is reading or listening.
The public are just as much as fault - they want to lynch somebody. The instant any incident occurs, the public want the perpetrator caught and hanged immediately. So the media feeds their hunger, spinning the situation, publishing what might be true (with suitable allegedlies, and rumours), and the authorities are made to look bad for appearing not to act.
The law needs changed to restrict what information can be reported in any trial, ALLEGED or not. It needs to become and offence to make public any information which might prejudice the trial. Essentially, any information not released by the Police or the Court system.
An innocent person suddenly becomes a victim if the media have ruined their life through irresponsible reporting.
As for the origins of the article - any website that allows uncontrolled public comment on ongoing criminal actions is asking for trouble. Fine, we can't stop the world, but we can educate our people on what is fair and just.
