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.

Top Tip Two

Serious one, this. I am reminded by a case we saw last week that burglary of houses in search of car keys is becoming increasingly common. For some teams of young men it is what they do every day, given the chance. It is next to impossible to steal a modern car, such are the levels of electronic and other security, so houses are burgled or people robbed to get hold of the keys. So don't keep your keys anywhere obvious, unless you want your car to finish up like this Bentley.
