I hope that you are enjoying my posts from Linda’s Just Jot it January as much as I am enjoying writing them.
Here is today’s prompt word.
Your prompt for January 15th, 2018, brought to you by the lovely Barb, is “Justice.” Use it any way you’d like in your post. And make sure you visit Barb at her blog, “Gallimaufry,” to read her post and say hi! Here’s her link: https://barbct.wordpress.com/
As I may have mentioned before, I love the Crime channels and often watch them when I have some free time. I find it fascinating how the whole story unravels piece by piece. There may be many false leads, mistakes, and oversights along the way, but when it all comes together and not only is the mystery solved, but justice has been served on the perpetrator of the crime, it must be a bittersweet moment. Happiness that the criminal will be punished, but, particularly in more serious cases, sadness that people can commit such appalling acts towards one another. Some of the crime scenes are so horrendous that I don’t know how these amazing agencies carry on. Traumatised is an understatement as to how they must feel!
The various people that are involved in the process of solving a crime, often have painstaking and fiddly work to carry out, run into many obstacles along the way and probably get utterly despondent -yet they keep going. These people are there to find justice for the victim and that is what they are going to do, sometimes even if it takes years, (which it quite often does).
For some of the detectives, forensic officers and others it becomes a mission to bring a criminal to justice, especially when they know who did it but have to prove it. Their tenacity and dedication is something that I really admire, and no words of praise that I can offer would ever do them justice!
I never quite get into these crime programmes sis!
I much prefer the ones where you follow real detectives , but of course, I know that they are not for everyone. 🙂
I’m fascinated by the crime shows too, Judy. It’s like watching a giant jigsaw being put together. Must be a harrowing yet satisfying career to work in forensics or to be a detective.
Yes, it really must, but I am sure it is really hard work. 🙂
Hear,hear great take Sis ????
Thanks, Sis! 🙂 ?
Do you mean, you are watching those “real crime cases”? I cannot watch those. I think, I am just feeling too much with the victims instead of getting focused on the detectives. But it is really amazing how the forensic is able to reveal the truth!
Yes, I do, Sis. Although it is distressing what happened to the victims, it is heartening to know that the detectives and other teams are doing their best to get justice for them.
I agree, sis! I am glad that there are people and more and more modern methods to find it all out and to catch the culprit!
I agree with Ritu, I cannot tolerate any crime or hospital bases drama – real or fiction. We have enough bad news without making it into entertainment, IMHO. I don’t judge anyone else for watching them though – it’s just not my cuppa.
I can understand why you wouldn’t want to see those types of programmes for entertainment, and I never actually thought about it like that, rather as a more documentary and informative type of programme. 🙂
Agreed! A rather unappreciated job, like nursing. Love a good crime show 🙂
Yes, I agree!! 🙂
I admire detectives in England and the US too, Judy. It must be lovely to have a law enforcement system that works so well.
It does generally work well, Robbie, although sometimes here in the UK especially, the sentences can be way too lenient!
They are lenient here too, Judy, and that is assuming the criminals ever make it to jail in the first place.
Dreadful, and also very scary!
This is me!

Hello, and thanks for stopping by. I am Judy, in my (very) early fifties and decided that life definitely gets more interesting as it goes on! I am a wife and a mum and have just finished University as a Registered Nurse, after having worked as an Associate Practitioner in the NHS. I am also a poet and the author of my debut book, 'Rhymes of the Times.' I love to laugh, and I love rhyming words too, so I joined the two together, and my book was born. I am currently working on another book in the series also. I am a prolific blogger and enjoy writing funny stories, anecdotes, and anything really that takes my fancy.
