Regimental Col downloads indecent images - why do they do it - and think they won't be noticed?

Because they are depraved and disgusting individuals who think that they are untouchable.

Kiddy fiddlers should be hung.

60 hours community service! I wonder if that will be challenged by CPS? I hope so as that is hardly a minor* offence.

I also hope he is not permitted to resign but dismissed.

*pun not intended!

Serious question.
He did it at the barracks.
Would there have been a consideration-of-CM, or would the RMP have just handed the details over to civvie plod?

Good question. I'm not sure what the RMP's policy in this is. We have some on the board, though, (I think) so it'd be interesting to see their answers.

Thats quite a narrow purview but one I can agree with. Which part of they are children doesn't seem to resonate with these people.What are they really thinking when looking at an immature undeveloped CHILD and don't get me started on the enablers that assist these degenerates.

I never had anything to do with it, but I think that the Armed Forces Act 2006 (which replaced the individual service acts) allows jurisdiction for military offences to the military authorities (Courts Martial or summary disposal by a commanding officer). There is also provision for service civilians in some circumstances.

In the case of general criminal offences committed on service property, I understand that jurisdiction can be either way. I should imagine that jurisdiction is decided by such factors as the seriousness of the offence, the capability and resources of service police to properly investigate it, whether the commission of the crime affected civilians etc.

I would guess that downloading (making) indecent images of children is considered a very serious and complicated offence that requires specialist investigation. The victims are very likely to be civilians and the investigation may well form part of a wider and overarching civilian police investigation into related matters.

I am happy to be corrected by anyone with better knowledge.
 
The fact it was multiple images, over such a considerable length of time, shows it wasn't a 'oops, made a mistake there' scenario.

A few years back, I was looking for a book...



I downloaded it from a pirate site. But it wasn't IT.

It was another book called Age of Innocence.
"... a 1995 photography and poetry book by David Hamilton. The book contains images of early-teen girls, often nude, accompanied by lyrical poetry.
The New York Times described the book as "the essence of icky. The author could certainly be considered a dirty old man."


I felt sick, and deleted it.
But if the internet gestapo had got busy, could I have claimed 'honest mistake, guv'?

Things have probably changed, but Hamilton's stuff was once freely available in the art and photography section of Waterstones and the like. It was art, see.
 
Given the context, that is an especially unfortunate way of mistyping 'hanged.'
Considering how small children are most adults must be hung to them.
 
why do they do it - and think they won't be noticed?
I suppose that it's quite easy to get away with if one takes some precautions like not downloading on one's work computer and not leaving dodgy images on a laptop that one sends in for repair.

As to why do they do it, because they can. Because society is conflicted on what's inside or outside the Pale. There are one or two threads on ARRSE about female teachers getting caught having had relationships with teenage boys and it's treated as a bit of a laugh. I'm as guilty as the next person in this regard. Why is a woman in her 30s having sex with a 14 year old boy socially (to some people), if not legally, acceptable while a man in his 30s having sex with a 14 year old girl is not?

The report says he was found guilty as opposed to pled guilty. If that was the case then his sentence was very lenient indeed. Perhaps he tried the old 'it wasn't me guv, someone's fitted me up when I forgot to log off'.

Perhaps there's a disgruntled senior NCO quietly chucking to himself.
