Ever Been Caught Magistrating?

“But again, Alfred John Brown, charged with murder...just moments ago being magistrated and sitting behind me here in the Bexar County jail.” --Kristina De Leon, WOAI Today, July 6, 2006

Thank you for coining a new verb Kristina. I'll notify Merriam Webster immediately!

Isn't that like buttering? Buttering up? Magistrating up?

Karlos said...

Buttering up...yes...I think so!

Barry said...

It comes from cops that say magistrate as a verb...that bad use has been around a long time.

Cops tend to come up with nonsense words - like 'burglarize'.

Karlos said...

The difference is that burglarize is in the Merriam Webster dictionary and Magistrate, the verb, is not.
