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.

This report shows that we have not come very far, if at all, from the days when the quality would visit Bedlam to mock the lunatics incarcerated there. The details and the available technology differ nowadays, but the principle and the casual sadism is just the same.
