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:

    What are they camouflaged as, speed bumps? He's in suburbia, not f*cking Borneo.

    He's in a house, with no hostages, the neighbours are out, he's heavily armed and he's killed and injured people.

    They've got access to APC's, which means there's probably a tank or two floating around too . . . . .

    WTF is the problem?
     
  3. Its New Zealand.
    That means if the bloke has a firearms licence he could be armed with pretty much anything.
    From a mate of mine who emmigrated out there last year, once you have a ticket you can legally buy just about anything that goes bang.
    Chances are he is tooled up in a pretty major way.

    That's why I thought blowing the house up with a tank would end the problem. He's obviously not up for negotiating, he's obviously a major threat to life and limb, so, blow the fcuker up!

  8. You don't live in Hungerford or Dunblane do you, sharpshooter?

    Remember, guns don't kill people. Rappers do.
     
  9. It's over. Police found him dead in a barricaded room yesterday. Going into the house at the centre of the Napier siege - where gunman Jan Molenaar was today found dead - was "extremely risky," police said.

    Jan Molenaar had been holed up in a two-storey Napier house since early Thursday morning when he shot three policemen and a neighbour - killing one policemen and seriously injuring the others - during what was described by police as a regulation drugs raid.

    The body found in the master bedroom of the Chaucer Rd address shortly after midday today is believed to be Jan Molenaar, operation head Superintendent Sam Hoyle told a 2pm press conference.

    Police found explosives at the house and would maintain extensive cordons for some time yet.

    "Explosives experts are assisting us to make sure the house is safe," Mr Hoyle said.

    Immediate neighbours of Molenaar were still not able to return to their homes today while there was a danger the devices might explode, Mr Hoyle said.

    The roads within the new cordon are Chaucer Rd South, Guys Hill Rd, Napier Terrace (from Chaucer Rd to Spencer Rd), all of Spencer Rd and Enfield Rd.

    Police say the roadblocks will be in place for one or two days

    "I understand completely people's frustration with being kept out of their homes. However we ask for patience for this next period while we let the explosives experts work.

    "Once they hand the scene to police so we can commence a scene examination we can review our cordons and allow more people to return to their homes."

    Police entered the siege house for the first time just after 11am this morning. It was "incredibly risky" to do so, Mr Hoyle said.

    "We had achieved all we could without entering by exploring other tactics. This was a last resort if you like".

    No one was harmed and no shots were fired in the operation.

    Mr Hoyle was not able to say how or when Molenaar died, but he did say the body was still in the house.

    "Those are both questions for the pathologist and the coroner who will determine ultimately the cause of death."

    He was also not able to say what weapons were discovered at the house as the sole purpose for entering the house was to find Molenaar and confirm whether he was alive or dead.
    It was revealed today armed police who had surrounded the house only fired two shots on the first day of the siege.

    They were fired by one officer shortly after the policemen and Mr Holmwood were fired upon.

    Other flashes seen by some members of the public coming from the armed police were from tear gas thrown into the house early this morning.

    All other shots fired were from weapons used by Molenaar, Mr Hoyle said.

    It was not known if Molenaar was injured by either of the police shots.

    It was a "huge relief" that no other police officers or members of the public were injured during the siege, Mr Hoyle said.

    "It was still a tragedy for (Molenaar's) family and for police this is just closing the final phase of an operation that was going to go for some weeks yet."

    The announcement of the body's discovery came about an hour after LAVs, ambulances and Armed Offenders Squad vehicles were seen driving through a police cordon and up to the scene.

    A number of inquiries into the incident will now start to get underway, Mr Hoyle said.

    There will be a coronial inquiry, a homicide inquiry into the death of Mr Snee as well an investigation into the wounding of Mr Miller, Mr Diver and Mr Holmwood.

    An investigation would also take place into the police operation, including reviewing decisions police had taken during the incident and tactical operations used.

    It would also take into account the cannabis search warrant, which brought the three police officers to Chaucer Road at 9.30am on Thursday.

    SHOT CIVILIAN NAMED

    Police have named the neighbour who was shot by Molenaar on Thursday.

    He is Leonard Holmwood, 44, of Napier.

    Police have said Mr Holmwood, who was known to Molenaar, was shot when trying to disarm Molenaar as he fired at officers.

    It had been an incredible relief to recover Senior Constable Len Snee's body, Mr Hoyle said.

    "Having to leave him out there that first night was a hideous decision ... recovering him last night gave us a huge sense of relief."

    Senior Constable Bruce Miller was still in intensive care, and police had been unable to speak to him.

    Constable Grant Diver was in a general ward.

    Mr Hoyle couldn't say what Molenaar's motivations were yet, he said.

    Molenaar's actions seemed inexplicable and completely out of proportion to a cannabis search warrant, Mr Hoyle said.

    "There's a long list of people to thank so I'm not going to attempt to mention everyone but there's been incredible patience displayed by those displaced people.

    "There's been incredible generosity and kindness shown by numerous people."

    Police staff had been incredibly dedicated, he said.

    "We saw some truly heroic stuff, particularly in those first few hours when we recovered our wounded officers."

    Armed offenders squad members arrived and rescued the injured Mr Diver all the while being allegedly fired upon by Molenaar.

    Mr Miller was found by Detective Sergeant Tim Smith and two members of the public.

    "They picked him up, put him in a car and took him from the scene. And again they did that under fire.

    "I'm incredibly proud of the whole team," Mr Hoyle said.

    POLICE DOG ALIVE

    The police dog caught in the middle of the siege has been given a clean bill of health.

    Sergeant Allan McRae this morning said that Fi had stayed silent for over 30 hours in the back of a police van which was "very, very unusual."

    Fi's handler, Constable Diver, had been told of Fi's rescue and seemed to be "progressing well".

    Fi, a specialist narcotics dog, was rescued during a focused operation to retrieve her around 10.30pm last night.
     
  10. I read in a Dutch newspaper the bloke was an emigré from Holland and was -off course, how pathetic- involved in marihuana trade while in New Zealand...

    I'm not religious and don't do inherited sin, but I do feel some shame for the actions of this idiot.

    You're an idiot.

    Moving on.... :roll:

    explaine???? are one those daily mail reading dick heads that supports gun bans then?? or are you one those if it looks nasty then ban it unless the gun in qustion looks 'harmless'?? i put it to you that is you that is the idiot

    ps. a bolt action rifle is just as lethal as m.16 rifle!!!

    a 3 shot 12g semi auto shotgun is just as lethal as spas-12

    .22 semi auto rifle is not as lethal as a single shot target 7.62mm rifle
    ETC

    DO YOU GET THE PICTURE SON.....AND ITS A PRETTY GORY ONE AT THAT!! :crash: :crash: :pissedoff: :pissedoff: :pissedoff:
     
  12. The licence should be issued to the owner of the firearms, not for the firearms themselves.

    Good gun/bad gun is just absurd. Its the duty of the authorities to issue FACs to responsible and law abiding people, and not fuss over magazine capacities or barrel lengths. Its this diversion that allowed people like Hamilton to obtain guns in the first place. If they had looked at him rather than the guns they would have seen a lying paedo with paranoid delusions. His character was well known before his first FAC application in 1977, which contained provable lies. Had that alone been checked with just a phone call he would never have got his first FAC, and Dunblane would be an unknown Scottish town.

    There was no conspiracy. It was incompetence.

    i think the point you're missing here is that if every tom, dick and harry can get any weapon they choose, we'd end up with a lot more d!ckheads over here doing exactly what mr. Molenaar has just gone and done: shooting the royal crap out of the coppers, then holing up in their homes and shooting everything that moves.

    and God knows there's plenty of d!ckheads who would do exactly that. do YOU want every chav to have a spas-12? or an M-16? or an AK-47?

    jesus, the sheer carnage...
     
  14. Learn to spell, and use grammar correctly, I find it hard to understand the language of the idiot.

    I don't read the Daily Mail as a rule, unless I fancy something that I can read before I wipe my arse with it.

    Personally, I don't particularly want any type of firearm pointed in my face, least of all a fully automatic weapon, or combat shotgun.

    Since when are you going to find a USE for an assault rifle in the UK? You won't use it to fend off burglars, or an attacker, would you? Personally, I'll go for the knife, or baseball bat - in a confined space, I'd rather go for either of those over the likes of an M-16.

    Any weapon, in the wrong hands, is deadly. Plus, you've already got idiots as it is with the likes of fully automatic weapons in London, and even a SPAS-12 has turned up. Thats on the black market. Want those legal, so we have more of it? Remember how many kids have died over the last year, due to gun violence? Now, imagine that, with legal firearms.

    Use your brain, if you have one. :roll:
