"The existence of law stands as a monument to the hope that words can contain and control violence, that unspeakable pain can be made to speak, and that aggression and desire can be tamed (Sarat & Kearns, P.2). However, even as the law provides something called justice, law commits violence and suffering. There is a ‘juridical power to inflict pain through language’."

"If it were permissible in past centuries to keep the common law in step with international law, it is imperative in today’s world that the common law should neither be nor be seen to be frozen in an age of racial discrimination."

"Although our law is the prisoner of its history, it is not now bound by decisions of courts in the hierarchy of an Empire then concerned with the development of its colonies."

I hate the bitch BUT, the Queen is the first British monarch to have sent an email, to have a message put on the moon, have conducted a royal ‘walkabout’ and to have held a public concert in her back garden. Despite who she is, that’s pretty cool.

The phrase “rubber bullets” is often used to describe what are more accurately termed “rubber-coated metal bullets”, heavy steel projectiles with a minimal coating of 1mm or 2mm of rubber, that are regularly used to lethal effect alongside — not instead of — live ammunition.

Rubber-coated metal bullets are fired from metal tubes placed on the end of high-velocity rifles such as the M-16s commonly used by Israeli troops. Tubes contain around 8 rubber-coated, cylindrical, steel projectiles, which are powered by blank rounds fired from the gun’s magazine.

Writing in the medical journal, The Lancet, [doctors] said firing the bullets at civilians made it “impossible to avoid severe injuries to vulnerable body regions such as the head, neck and upper torso, leading to substantial mortality, morbidity and disability.”

They added: “We reported a substantial number of severe injuries and fatalities inflicted by use of rubber bullets when vulnerable upper-body regions such as the head, neck and upper torso were struck.

“This type of ammunition should therefore not be considered a safe method of crowd control.”

In reference to criminal records, a good character is like a deposit account in a bank. As we go through this weary vale of tears, exposed as we are to all manner of temptation, the older we get, the more valuable it becomes - our deposit account, that is.

We all come into this weary world with a good character…but even the greatest criminal in the world (looking at the accused) has to be convicted for the first time.
