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.

Simply Incredible

Following the appalling death of a tiny baby, savaged by two Rottweiler dogs, we have been allowed some insights into the way many of our fellow citizens feel about animals and about people.

Sky News' website has this:-

I am particularly saddened by the fact that these two beautiful animals have been destroyed prior to any investigation taking place. Maybe instead of just killing these dogs questions should have been asked as to what the baby was doing to these animals to make them attack and also where were the babies parents when the attack was taking place? It is easy to destroy the dogs...but maybe the parents should be dealt with as well and not just blame (what are after all wild animals) these poor animals.

Investigation? Like finding the dogs guilty or not guilty? Perhaps the five-month old baby provoked them?
