Every Judge- and this should apply to politicians too!- needs to get out into the parts of our world where they seldom, if ever, tread.
Without escorts, minders or hangers-on they must all do time (NOT just a whistle-stop visit- a whole shift at least):
- In an emergency department and/or ambulance on Friday/Saturday nights (Thanks to Gecko for reminding me of this!)
- In a police car on the same nights- preferably in South Auckland!
- In a prison wing- high medium or better- as an inmate (safer than wearing Corrections uniform!).
Working alongside the front line staff who do this shit every day!
Repeat this every year, to remind them what they are protecting the rest of us from and watch the atitude adjustment!
