Re: Keep a pet judge handy

It's worse than that. Over here there are basically 24-hour call centers of 'judges' that can issue warrants; there's not a lot else these para-judges can do, I don't think they are even authorized to perform marriages, but they are on shifts so that the cops don't ever have to "wake up the judge" to get a warrant, they just call the 1-800-WARRANT hotline.
