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.

Raving Mad

We may be desperate for helicopters in Helmand, and some police forces are declining to pursue almost half of the matters reported to them, but a couple of hundred young people daring to enjoy themselves was seen as being worth two choppers and dozens of coppers to effect a handful of arrests.
Sense of proportion anyone?
