Saved From The Bench

In reading some public comments on a story from the criminal justice system this morning I am particularly grateful that the commentators’ only power comes from their keyboard and not from their being members of the Bench.

Reading between the lines of some of the comments, I’m also grateful that there is an independent judiciary in charge of the criminal justice system, largely because the understanding of ‘justice’ revealed in some of the commentary seems closer to revenge than true justice.
