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.

Motes and Beams

The U.S. State Department regularly analyses other countries' libertarian credentials. Thanks to the UK Human Rights Blog for this link. Including Bermuda with its population of 60,000 and overwhelming US influence rather muddies the water, but what struck me was the irony implicit in an in-depth analysis of Britain's record by the masters of Guantanamo, the tormentors of Bradley Manning and the owners of the Colorado Supermax prison.
