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.

I see that the Sitemeter counter has slipped above the 600,000 mark this evening. Of course many of those visitors will have arrived by accident and pushed off pretty smartly, but I am nevertheless pleased to have had so many people from so many countries read about my experiences.
Thank you all, and I shall try to keep the posts coming, which is greatly helped by my fellow citizens' apparent willingness to put themselves in the way of the police and the courts.
