Now that I am retired having been many years a magistrate with a long awareness of the declining freedoms enjoyed by the ordinary citizen and a corresponding fear of the big brother state`s ever increasing encroachment on civil liberties I hope that my personal observations within these general parameters will be of interest to those with an open mind. Having been blogging with this title for many years against the rules of the Ministry of Justice my new found freedom should allow me to be less inhibited in these observations.

POLICE IN CONFUSION
Police misconduct or allegations thereof is once again headline news so two recent contrasting or complementary reports depending on one`s interpretation make interesting reading.
Devon and Cornwall Police are surprised at an increased number of complaints whilst their colleagues in North Yorkshire are concerned that no police officer found guilty of misconduct over the last five years has been exonerated on appeal.
No opinion from me on this except to say that our whole system of policing seems to be on the verge of profound change.
