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.

By the Way

I was disturbed to read that police were preparing to involve themselves in the goings-on in an exploitative television programme that has been causing a lot of controversy recently. Please, please, if there is any officer out there who combines quite a bit of rank with solid common sense - tell Hertfordshire's finest to get back to something important, even if it will deprive some Inspector of his moment of glory in front of the cameras. De minimis non curat lex - and you can't get much more minimal than this rubbish.
