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.

Isn't This A Bit OTT?

Firemen involved in a schoolboy prank have now been visited with the full weight of a disciplinary hearing pending which they have been suspended.

For heaven's sake, what's all the fuss about?

There's nothing here that could not have been sorted out with a grade-A bollocking from the boss. Why has everybody become so pompous all of a sudden?
