RIP Carole Barnes, Victim of Child Porn Witchhunt.

The ITN newsreader Carole Barnes, who died recently, was investigated for possession of indecent images of children during the 1990s.

She took some innocent shots of her toddler in the bath, as many parents might. When she took the film to Boots the Chemist for processing, a technician saw the images and reported her to the police.

Such was the level of hysteria gripping the UK. Since then, the situation has only got worse...
