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. Not at all. If you were the 'defense attorney' for these fellows you too would argue in their favour; that's the job of legal defence counsel. Whether that defence will wash is another story; I'd like to see the four go for an early bath, personally.

  2. Believe me, I fully understand how our "system" works.....or not. Setting aside the lawyering aspect, I think it is a fitting metaphor for the "blame others" meme that seems to characterize much of the world in which we live.

  3. It's your fault I'm getting fat.

  5. I object to the use of the word 'meme' on this board. I find it offensive.
  6. Perhaps minime is better?

  8. It's not my fault, you didn't build it, George Bush made me do it, we must redistribute the wealth, it's those crazy white Christians with guns.
  9. Agreed, and for that, I blame Sigmund Freud.

  10. I blame the parents.They **** you up you know.
  11. Lawyer has to come up with something.
    The guilty bastard throws himself at the judges feet and begs for mercy never really works.

    I believe lawyers have to act on their clients instructions, so this lawyer could in theory be doing what his clients ask.

    I'm perfectly sure that his 20% of the multi-million dollar damages that could be claimed if he gets his clients off using this defence played absolutely no role in formulating this strategy.
