Musings and Snippets from a recently retired JP. I served for 31 years, mostly in west London. I was Chairman of my Bench for some years, and a member of the National Bench Chairmen's Forum All cases are based on real ones, but anonymised and composited. All opinions are those of one or more individuals. JPs swear to enforce the law of the land, whether or not they approve of it. Nothing on here constitutes legal advice.

You Selfish Bastard
I am rarely moved to true anger by a newspaper report, but this, on the Times site, stirred me as few media reports do.
A man who is prepared to kill his own children in order to inflict the maximum possible hurt on his wife or partner is beneath contempt. I do not have the comfort of believing that he will suffer hellfire or any of the fates promised by supernatural beliefs. I do know that he makes me feel a sense of shame that I am a man.
