+1 on the keep it quiet until proven guilty
I think it is terrible when innocent folks are dragged through the media. However, were it not for the Saville documentary, would all of those other victims have come forward? Would they have been able to make that show about the monks in Wales or wherever it was that which resulted in several people coming forth and thus strengthening the case against them? These were both aired before the living people who were accused were even charged, should they be illegal too?
The police are usually pretty cagey about revealing whom they are investigating, but once a charge has been brought, there is a certain sense in appealing to the public for further evidence for or against the accused.
