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.

My American friend Arlington Hynes who writes Bogol, a blog that veers between the brilliant and the downright weird, has come up with this cracker from the BBC.
"What motivated him to throw a puppy at the Hell's Angels is currently unclear," a police spokesman said.
What a great mix of slightly-dim and slightly-German that quote is.
I couldn't cap that, even if I had been drinking, which I haven't.
Perhaps I'll start.
