The Magistrate's Blog (2005-2012)

This blog has migrated to www.magistratesblog.blogspot.co.uk This blog is anonymous, and Bystander's views are his and his alone. Where his views differ from the letter of the law, he will enforce the letter of the law because that is what he has sworn to do. If you think that you can identify a particular case from one of the posts you are wrong. Enough facts are changed to preserve the truth of the tale but to disguise its exact source.

Thought Provoking

Thanks to everyone who has recently chipped in comments. I am rather chuffed that most of this blog is no longer written by me.

There has been a lot of really good discussion on the last topic, setting out the battle lines between society's differing approaches to crime and punishment.
