Brit soldier killed by Iraqi police?

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. Sickening indeed. Frankly it makes me too angry to say anything constructive, except that I hope his mother gets the peace she deserves.
     
  2. This must be a terrible blow for the family and it must make his death harder to deal with. If this does prove to the case that the police were involved, and to be honest we do not trust the Iraqis 100%, then it is time to pack up and leave. How can we police a country when all quarters are out to take a piece of you.
     
  3. It'll still not get the amount of attention that we have had recently.
     
  4. It's rather ironic that Iraqi police can be released after they had been "vouched for" by one of their own. Quid pro quo anyone? What price some baksheesh for a sqaddies' family, taking into account pain and suffering, future earnings, etc?
     
  5. Rage against The Machine's "Know your enemy" springs to mind..............

    I hope that this actually gets more coverage than it currently is, though it will be painfull for the family he has left behind, it will show the doubters exactly what we are up against and might go some way toward getting some ppl off our backs, hopefully.
     
  6. It would be good to think that our responsible media would now get on the case and persue it as they do when it is a story about our soldiers.
     
  7. I think the articles in today's papers only scratch the surface. I know of another incident where those involved were suspicious of skullduggery.
