Ex soldier jailed for urinating on dying woman

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/tees/7063366.stm

Anderson, a former soldier, had smoked a cannabis joint and been drinking when he and two friends spotted her.

He tried to rouse her by throwing a bucket of water over her, before urinating on her and covering her with shaving foam.

A crowd had gathered around, watching and laughing, and the incident was filmed on a mobile phone.

Its not only the fact of what he and his two cohorts did, its the fact a crowd gathered and laughed, British society do we have it anymore or has it given up?

Story up elsewhere minus the 'ex-soldier' makes us all proud I'm sure.

I'm not sure what disgusts me more - the doped up and pi$$ed ex squaddie chucking a bucket of what (where did he get that?) then pi$$ing on an unconscious person or the cnuts that watched!

Well, it was Hartlepool - bunch of monkey hangers!

I am NOT condoning what he did, but WHY do the rags always need to include the fact that someone was previously a soldier.

For fcuks sake, if he had been part of a high wire act with a travelling circus at some point in his lifetime, would they have felt the need to inform us.............NO!

As if HM Forces don't get enough bad publicity already!

Vile and wretched subhuman degenerate, and the scum of the high street who congregated around him and enjoyed the show.

Welcome to Britain. I bet he plays on his army service to the parole board and is out in 6 months. Does anybody know which regiment he was in?

Yes this one has been covered (can't find the link now) but there was no mention of him being an ex soldier not that that has any bearing on how disgusting this was. :evil:

Unfortunately the press will just leap at the opportunity to mention this fact :roll:

Was in the middle of emailing the BBC when msr posted this. Doubt I'll get a response but for what it's worth:

Could someone clarify to me why it was felt newsworthy to report that the chap in question (see URL) was a former soldier?

What bearing does his previous employment have on the reporting?

Unless you can assure me of course that he would have been mentioned as an ex-binman, ex-plumber or ex-librarian. I somehow do not believe you would do so however.

So is this sloppy journalism or pandering to a preconception that all soldiers or former soldiers are thugs?

I await your reply with interest.

As said no relevance at all that he was an ex-squaddie, he's a smackhead he did a dispicable thing while cowards stood around and let it happen. This Country is far better that CNUTS like him arent still serving, three years is not enough, he'll do less than half. In my books he let someone die who could of possibly survived with medical help for all he knew at the time. CNUT :x

I suggested in the other thread he should be drowned or boiled (both are fine or maybe combined) in a vat of his own p1ss.

The fact that he is an ex-squadie does not change this fact. And the same goes for the crowd that watched.

Why didn't anyone windmill the fcuker in to the ground and then call the ambulance for her? Or vice versa.

He may get out early, but that'll be after 18 months of being someone's 'wife' inside!

Real crooks will tear him a new one - time and time again I hope!

Although this is really vile, what can you really do to him? Other than trap his head in a car door and repeatedly slam it of course...

Perhaps this is pandering to the preconception that soldiers are:

1. disciplined
2. as representatives of the country, held to a higher standard
3. held up as people to look up to.

Therefore when a soldier or ex-soldier deviates from these standards, it is newsworthy in a way that a binman misbehaving is not.

In a similar way, it is more newsworthy when a serving soldier or veteran has had some wrong done to him.

A man who urinated on a woman as she lay dying and shouted "this is YouTube material" has been sentenced to three years in prison.

I hope somebody filmed him getting sentenced - That WOULD be YouTube material!


:D :D :D

Your probably right knowing the medias normal indepth reporting skills he was probably in the ACF or even walked past an ACIO once and picked up a leaflet. Sadly for once though this reporter probably got it right.

That the poor woman breathed her last in an unhappy life covered in this vermin's pi$$ is heartbreaking. In the event that this little fcuker lives, I hope that the RBL remember his name so that when he comes to them cap in hand in later life, they fcuk him off at the high port. Likewise his Regimental Association and any ex service organisation he may go to, not to mention pub, off licence, club, shop, football ground etc. Don't forget. Hopefully the Old Bill will remind them when Anderson is released.

His drug dealer should kick him in to touch too.

3 years is not enough for the scumbag. I have no problem with the mention of being an ex-soldier as such but if they are going to report that why not also mention his regiment/corp, how long he served and the circumstances of his discharge?

BTW: On BBC news 24 right now
