Sexual assault survivors are naming their assailants with #UtahRapists

Article here. Excerpt:

'Many of the women now are publicly naming the people who allegedly assaulted them. The idea behind the social media movement, they say, is to make public the names of the accused so others will know who to avoid.
...
But some Utah attorneys feel this is a more malicious version that ignores due process rights for the accused.
...
Some have called for Twitter to ban the hashtag and take down lists that have been created of the accused attackers.

The accounts have no real way of vetting the individuals whose names have been published under #UtahRapists. Individuals could be posting them, too, to falsely accuse someone of assault. Additionally, someone may have committed assault or harassment, but not rape, and still be labeled a rapist.'
