#JusJoJan 2018. January 15th Justice

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!

Episode 166: Fairy Grandmother! — February 16, 2015

Episode 166: Fairy Grandmother!

When I was younger, my parents were pretty strict about swearing (or rather us not swearing) as I wrote about here. It was pretty unheard of to hear bad language on the TV, and I never ever heard my parents use really bad language. Yes, my step-dad loved ‘bloody’ and ‘shit’,  and my mum was partial to ‘for Christ’s sake’ but there was never any ‘f’ word or similar. Ever.

Nowadays it is so much more commonplace. we hear it all the time, On TV, listening to music, even young kids on the street seem to bandy swear words about with abandon, as it is part of their everyday vocabulary.

Many of the older generation still do not like to hear people constantly swearing, and one grandmother of 73 landed up getting herself in trouble when she tried to make a stand.

It all started when her daughter’s boyfriend couldn’t control his language in front of the woman, her daughter and granddaughter. She had finally had enough when the 6ft 2 chef loomed over her swearing in her face. Quick as a flash, she pulled put a bottle of ‘Fairy’ washing up liquid from her bag (God knows why she was carrying it around, unless it was for just such an occasion) and squirted the liquid towards the 38 year old’s mouth.

Now, most of us as kids were threatened to have ‘our mouths washed out with soap’ if we were caught swearing by an older person, and being of that generation, she followed through on it, probably intending to teach him a lesson in manners.

Unfortunately, his poor feelings were hurt and he called the police accusing her of assault; sure enough they came out and charged her! She will be up before the magistrates court facing prosecution and a criminal record.

How times have changed. Forty years ago this woman would have been commended for her actions, and the foul-mouthed ranter, berated by the police for wasting their time, and for using abusive language!

Is the Crown  Prosecution Service getting a little over the top wanting to prosecute this woman, or do you think she ‘assaulted’ the man and deserves what she gets?
