AN INADEQUATE CONCLUSION AT HEATHROW

Written by RSS Poster The Justice of the Peace on the 22nd January 2019 at 14:08 - Posted in Police Blogs

One would have thought that suggesting there was a bomb and assaulting a security officer in the vicinity of the threat at Heathrow, would have been enough for an intending passenger to be arrested on suspicion and eventually charged with appropriate offence(s). In the case of the son of a world famous singer he was, unlike many who have committed similar offences, cautioned by police.  This was a disgraceful dereliction of duty by the police.  The officers involved and any superiors who

OPINIONS OF A DINOSAUR

Written by RSS Poster The Justice of the Peace on the 21st January 2019 at 12:57 - Posted in Police Blogs

Last week the High Court rendered a not widely publicised decision on the future fate of the two British prisoners held in Syria by Kurdish forces.  They are accused of being not only Isis terrorists but part of the infamous group of murderers who filmed their murder by decapitation with a knife of innocent people and broadcast their horrendous deeds to the world.  This was part of a cold blooded exercise to terrorise those who opposed their attempts to impose Sharia over vast areas of

Tidying Up

Written by RSS Poster Medic Scribe on the 19th January 2019 at 15:09 - Posted in Ambulance Blogs

Twenty years ago when I was looking to buy my first house, my realtor didn’t understand why I did not like the home she was showing me that seemed to meet all my specifications: price, location, size. She did not understand that just two months before I had worked a cardiac arrest there. I could still see and smell the man and all his bodily fluids in the cluttered living room where he collapsed. If I bought that house I would have to live with his ghost. Not for me. Home hunting is hard when

Muscle Rigidity in Opioid Overdose

Written by RSS Poster Medic Scribe on the 19th January 2019 at 1:18 - Posted in Ambulance Blogs

I wrote a number of months ago about fentanyl induced chest wall rigidity in opioid overdoses. Chest Wall Rigidity Fentanyl induced chest wall rigidity is rare in the hospital setting, but it should not be surprising to find it is a factor in overdose outside the hospital given that the amounts of fentanyl being injected are exponentially larger than in the hospital. A typical $4 bag of properly mixed fentanyl sold on the streets of Hartford can be the equivalent of 1000 mcgs of fentanyl or 10 100

THE GONE MAGISTRATE

Written by RSS Poster The Justice of the Peace on the 09th January 2019 at 14:48 - Posted in Police Blogs

There is a prominent article in today`s Times [copied below] urging the government to allow Justices of the Peace to retire at age 75, five years older than the current age. It has been common knowledge for over a decade that the age profile of magistrates was such that a severe shortage of JPs was to be expected.  Indeed the discomfort for HMCTS is that not surprisingly many benches in addition to being short of magistrates per se will have fewer approved chairman to preside over courts.

POLICE TOLERATE VIOLENCE

Written by RSS Poster The Justice of the Peace on the 04th January 2019 at 12:22 - Posted in Police Blogs

I would opine that in the age group over aet 50 a minority only has been the victim of violent crime.  That group would include most judges and magistrates  their familiarity with violent criminal offending resulting from their experiences in court and the anecdotal and statistical analyses that circulate within society. Until new years eve I was within that group. Whilst eating and drinking at a grand party where my table of ten was occupied by five couples who were strangers to each other

STOP BLEATING ABOUT THE MAGISTRACY`S LACK OF DIVERSITY

Written by RSS Poster The Justice of the Peace on the 03rd January 2019 at 15:01 - Posted in Police Blogs

The 2018 judicial diversity statistics, surprise surprise, give a diversity breakdown of the judiciary as of 1 April 2018. The data shows that 55% of magistrates were female (compared to 54% in April 2017) and 12% of magistrates declared themselves as Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (compared to 11% in April 2017).

Back to work… 2019 here we go!

Written by RSS Poster CC Dave Thompson on the 01st January 2019 at 10:59 - Posted in Police Blogs

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and a Happy New Year. I enjoyed getting out to see some of you before Christmas and last night, New Year’s Eve. This festive period sees me turn the big 50. They say it’s the new forty and that caffeine products can help thicken the hair. I am drinking plenty of it so let’s see! A few things before I talk about 2019… First, thank you for the work on the performance plan. I am pleased to see reductions in outstanding logs and improved response

Peace and goodwill to all men might now be considered a hackneyed way to convey the meaning of Christmas but a Happy New Year to all is beyond misunderstanding. This retired magistrate hopes to be up and running again by the end of next week after having given thanks once more to the inventors of the amber liquid.

CLBD-7 A Fiction

Written by RSS Poster BrianKellett.net on the 26th December 2018 at 21:49 - Posted in Ambulance Blogs

So the previous post is a part of a piece of fiction that I occasionally type stuff into. It’s about a world where a new and contagious form of dementia ‘CLBD-7’ has changed the world in unusual ways. It’s a first person piece (mostly) written by a journalist writing a retrospective since it was discovered. If you click on the ‘fiction’ category you can scroll back and see how it started. This is a first draft, which is what they will all be, and I’m
