It occurred to me this morning, whilst driving to work in the rain, that judges are not, in fact, judgemental.
Take for instance the idiot with the Carlton Football Club licence plate who went through a red light in front of me, mine went green and he was still in the intersection, and then proceeded to turn right without using a blinker. Any reasonable person would come to the conclusion that this person is, without doubt, an idiot, dickhead, and a person incapable of driving who got his licence from the back of a Weetbix packet.
A judge on the other hand would be looking at the facts of the matter. Yes, the driver in question failed to stop for a red light. Yes, the driver in question failed to indicate when turning.
No judgement made about the person's character is made. Do judges judge people or administer the law in light of the facts presented to them?
I would like to see something in the sentencing guidelines about how stupid the driver is, in the judge's opinion. After all, he is only one of those Carlton bastards.
