Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. U.S. Army veteran Kayvan Sabeghi in intensive care after being hit with police nightsticks during Occupy Oakland clash | Mail Online

    Do you think that something similar is possible in the UK?

    PS. In Russia it is quite possible.

  5. Our policemen are the best in the world and I'm sure would have waited till a full day after the riot to give him a right kicking for resisting arrest.

    Owns a brewpub, strange name, sounds like a wrong un to me Sarge.
     
  6. Tut tut. You haven't considered the exciting possiblity that the filth might start with Tropper.

  7. I'm not sure what to have for lunch.
     
  8. I've just sent the bint out - for veal to make veal stew with mashed taters. I will then go and partake of some fruit juices of the pear and plum type in downtown capajebo.

    You?
     
  9. It's dark and miserable stew sounds a good idea. I've walked the dog, think I'll go back to bed for a bit.
     
  10. Thats should be shitejevo
     
  11. Ah, the thought that such exciting possibilities hadn't crossed my mind.....but I am sure that Tropper will be making a claim soon enough and then the excitement will begin!
     
  12. Who do you think started the ruck in Oakland anyway?
     
  13. It has happened - GMP copper kicked the crap out of a squaddie. Only thing was the copper was a Special Constable (part-time volunteer, for anyone abroad) and an ex squaddie himself!
    But saying that, I don't know if it would happen as much. Mainly because in my unit we were taught to avoid trouble, if you're going to fight - Leg it before the police arrive!
    I personally don't think most coppers would kick the crap out of someone for no reason, (though sone will I'm sure) and certainly not a squaddie or ex squaddie. Not so much for respect fo the forces, more because of the bad publicity it creates. But saying that, there's a lot of ex squads as coppers and I've known a couple to be bastards because of what unit they were, compared to the bloke they're arresting.
     

  14. Well I thought it was jim24 being outraged about some facebook shenanigans.....but then of course there is talk of jim and tropper being one and the same. Tis a mystery to be sure.
     
  15. the US police seem to be acting like stormtroopers.
