Guilty until proven innocent

Students come to defence of Penticton teacher accused of making inappropriate comments

I couldn’t believe reading the story published about teacher Miko McGrady. These unfounded statements from students that are two to three years old became front-page news.

The justice system gagged the newspapers on printing the name of the stepdad who pimped his kid, but this teacher gets his name smeared all over the front page? Who protects him and his family? This type of reporting of unsubstantiated statements from kids is very similar to News of the World and other tabloidesque reporting.

I now see that playground gossip can easily become front page news.
