History is littered with examples of public shaming. Criminals were restrained in pillories and pelted with rotten fruit. Adulteresses were paraded through villages. Thieves' hands were amputated as crowds whooped and jeered.
It took a jury of seven men and five women a little over 26 hours to find Harvey Weinstein guilty on two counts: criminal sexual assault in the first degree, based on the testimony of former 'Project Runway' production assistant Miriam Haley, and rape in the third degree, based on the testimony of aspiring actress Jessica Mann.
Until two weeks ago I had never heard of Caroline Flack. I don't watch 'Love Island' or read any celebrity news. She took her own life on February 15, and since then there has been relentless daily coverage.
