Being at supreme authority in a courtroom is not an easy task where you hold hopes of so many people. You have to maintain the demeanor of the courtroom. You have to be unbiased and accurate with your knowledge of law and reference cases in the past. Those who can handle that pressure have ice like cool and calm minds. But a question arises, How does it feel to judge someone you don’t know? How can you judge that an accused is guilty or not? What if you gave a wrong judgment on which someone’s ‘life is dependent.
- Giving answer to that, here are some excerpts of talks with random judges,
- They say that they are like a normal human being like any of us but when they are given that seat of responsibility then the only thing they care about is that innocent should be saved and guilty should be punished.
- Sometimes, when an accused is found guilty who doesn’t seem to be that much of criminalized mind then it becomes their responsibility that guilty should be sorry for what he had done and that’s why they punish him in a way that he learns his lesson.
- Judges have a responsibility to create a better society, so every time punishing someone very harshly is not a good decision because then that person would become more inclined towards crime and we will fail to create a better society which is nation’s loss.
- But, sometimes the scenario is wholly different from the previous when a criminal had done such a crime that doesn’t require mercy, be it a terrorist attack or mass killing of little children or someone got raped brutally. Humans like them are a virus to the society which if left alive will only get multiplied.
- Judges have got a responsibility to create a better society in which they feel very proud.
