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.

Back to Bedlam

The Super Soaraway 'Sun' is in the second day of a hate-fuelled rant about Broadmoor Hospital. That's right, hospital.
By no means all of the patients are sent there following a criminal conviction, in fact quite a high proportion of them are admitted after referral from the mainstream NHS.
That is a fact that the newspaper conveniently fails to mention, and it certainly doesn't prevent them from referring to 'beasts', 'monsters' and the usual rubbish. There's a sample here.
