Modern Day Witch Hunt - Finished?

by Ernest Bywater

Copyright© 2019 by Ernest Bywater

True Story: This is a true accounting, in a report format, of the abuse of office by a number of people, and how they cause trouble for people who dare to believe in things different to them. In this case they use the cry of 'Child Porn' to scare people into accepting what they want. The worst part of this is the government greatly changing the law but not publicly saying they did. Sadly, this matter still has not ended well, but as best as can be. 34,400 words

Cover Art

The original cover image of Femme accusée de sorcellerie au Moyen-Age by E. Deschamps XIXe siècle is replaced by Arresting a witch from the book A larger history of the United States of America, to the close of President Jackson’s administration by T. W. Higginson. The image is in the public domain and is on file with Wikipedia. The trimming, manipulation, and adding of text is by Ernest Bywater. All rights to the cover image are reserved by the copyright owners.

Originally released in September 2016 as Modern Day Witch Hunt then updated due to events as they happened. This 21 June 2019 edition is heavily revised due to the end of the two main court cases covering the criminal charges. This is intended to be the final version.

The titles in use are a Chapter, a Sub-chapter, and a section.

Author’s Note: This is written in the third person as it’s a report of the true events and information.

Special Note: The Magistrates and Court Staff were all very courteous and professional in all of their interaction during this matter, and they dealt with the various cases as best and speedily as they could in light of their work load and the actions of the others involved in the case. The majority of the Police officers involved in the cases were professional and polite in their interactions during the course of this matter, but the Police officer in charge of the case was very different in his behaviour, attitude, and handling of the matter. I don’t know if the multitude of the Police delays were due to planned actions, or incompetence, or just plain lack of interest in dealing with the matters that caused the almost four years of delays in having the matters resolved.
