Criminality Permeates the ranks in NI

#1
NI soldiers convictions revealed

More than 1,300 members of the armed forces have received a criminal conviction while serving in Northern Ireland in the last six years.
The figure was contained in a reply to a Parliamentary question to Ulster Unionist MP Lady Sylvia Hermon.

She said she was "absolutely shocked" and wants more details on the types of offences committed.

Armed Forces minister Adam Ingram outlined the convictions in magistrates' and crown courts.

Although there was no breakdown of what type of offences were committed, the minister disclosed that the number of convictions of Army personnel for this year up to 30 November was 83.

This was well down on 2003's figure, when there were 300 convictions.

In 2001 there were 242 convictions and it rose a year later to 281.

Two years ago, there were 282 convictions but that dropped to 158 last year.

"I want to know what types of offences are masked by these statistics and what the Ministry of Defence is doing to tackle what is obviously a very serious problem within its ranks," Lady Sylvia said.

Sinn Fein assembly member Philip McGuigan said the figures illustrated the need for the British Army to withdraw from Northern Ireland.

"People will be shocked at the extent to which criminality permeates the ranks of the British Army serving in the six counties (Northern Ireland)," the North Antrim member said.
The picture bears the caption "Thousands of soldiers have criminal convictions"

I cant help but wonder how many of the "offenses masked by these statistics" are speeding fines though.

Member is the word!

ARRSE poster EX STAB said the figures illustrated the need for the Sinn Fein to withdraw from Northern Ireland.

"People will be shocked at the extent to which criminality permeates the ranks of Sinn Fein in the six counties (Northern Ireland)," the Ex-volunteer member said.

I wait for the analysis of 'crimes' committed by soldiers in a comparison with those committed by the filth released into the wild by our brave Government.

Anyone who wants to see a factual breakdown of crimes committed upon the population of the UK need go no further than the CAIN project set up and maintained by the University of Ulster: The 'Sutton' index will show you which groups are responsible for what during the period 1969-2000.

I sincerely hope that one of the media groups, or one of the real political parties operating on the island of Ireland will commission such an analysis. The PSF savages need a dose of reality.
