#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!


  1. 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.

  2. 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!

    1. 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.

  3. 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.

    1. 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. 🙂
