No, Tom, I don't believe we should adopt the Canadian system of only reporting the news of the offense and the name of the offender after conviction. I think we have a good system of assuming the accused is innocent until proven guilty. It is incumbent on each of us to remember and adhere to that premise, as well as it is incumbent upon the media to act responsibly. But alas, with ratings being the dominant persuit of much of the media, the frenzy to sensationalize and encourage a mob culture is the shame of those who encourage such behavior, as well as those who are persuaded by it.
