How Harry Potter fans actually feel about Umbridge’s punishment

In Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) and his cousin Dudley Dursley (Harry Melling) are attacked by two Dementors a few blocks from Privet Street. It is obvious that these terrible creatures who feed on human happiness have given up their duties as prison guards in Azkaban to join Voldemort. This raises the question: if there are no joy-sucking Dementors around Umbridge when Umbridge arrives, is she really getting the punishment she deserves?

Since the fall of Voldemort and the promotion of Kingsley Shacklebolt (George Harris) to the position of Minister for Magic, the Dementors have made no attempt to return to their posts in Azkaban. JK Rowling shared Magic world“While it is still used as a prison, the guards are now Aurors who are regularly rotated from the mainland. Since this new system was introduced, there has not been a single breakthrough.”

However, before becoming a prison, the fortress of Azkaban was home to the sorcerer Ekrizdis, who practiced extremely dark magic. The Ministry didn’t know about this place until his death, when its cloaking spell was broken. Visitors uncovered such nameless horrors that Dementors felt like a walk in the park. “Those who came to investigate subsequently refused to talk about what they found inside, but the least frightening thing was that the place was infested with Dementors,” she wrote.
