Sitting Trial Judge Did Not Know What A 'Website' Is!!

From Yahoo News:
LONDON (Reuters) - A British judge admitted on Wednesday he was struggling to cope with basic terms like "Web site" in the trial of three men accused of inciting terrorism via the Internet.

"The trouble is I don't understand the language. I don't really understand what a Web site is," he told a London court during the trial of three men charged under anti-terrorism laws.

Prosecutor Mark Ellison briefly set aside his questioning to explain the terms "Web site" and "forum." An exchange followed in which the 59-year-old judge acknowledged: "I haven't quite grasped the concepts."


"Yesterday, the judge paid close attention to a Powerpoint presentation on the world-wide web. The first slide displayed by Professor Tony Sams, a computer expert, showed a yellow cloud labelled “internet” connected by blue lines to two computers."

Education is the key.

If the judg lacked the knowledge to understand the case, perhaps he should have recused himself.

I think the world may need some new judges.

It boggles my mind that some judges can sit in judgment when they have no concept of reality in the 21st Century.
