I’ve seen all the five Harry Potter movies but only read the first of the books. Please post no spoilers about anything happening in parts six or seven.
There is something I feel I’ve missed in the story. It seems to be common knowledge, if not generally talked about, that for example Lucius Malfoy was a Death Eater. So how come he and others are not in Azkaban or at least shunned by the rest of the wizard community? Why are they treated like everyone else, when they’re known to be followers of Voldemort?
