Here's an article I submitted on Dec 1, 2004.
It was rejected (like the rest of my submissions) so I'm reposting it here.
Canadian witch hunt claims victim (YRO)
Injusticebusters reports the suicide of James LeCraw from Toronto who, on April 16, 2003, was publicly outed by the police as a suspect of child-porn possession as part of "Operation Snowball" that purports to "name and shame" suspected Pedophiles.
Although after a 5-month investigation the charges against were completely withdrawn, LeCraw was never cleared from the stigma of being associated with such a horrific crime and on on July 19th this year he killed himself.
Given the implications of the case, I find it strange that the only other reference I could find on the internet is a report by CBC Radio reporter Kellie Hudson (scroll down to The Current: Part 3).
Are we going to experience a wave of McCarthyism in Canada?
