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.

Er - Sorry About That

I wrote in November about an upright citizen who suffered from heavy-handed policing at the Eurostar terminus and was unwise enough to accept a caution. The Police have now apologised and wiped off the caution (how?). That's as it should be, but how likely is is that someone without the Brigadier's impeccable character, and without his ability to get a letter in The Times, would receive anything other than a brush-off?
