Actually on reflection it's a a pretty callous shooting.

If true, it's not good. Don't know what the full circumstances are on this one but it doesn't look good.
 
Shit. That doesn't look good.
 
Video has emerged of a serving member of the SASR killing an unarmed 25yr old Afghan man in extremely questionable circumstances.

Full story at link below

Editing your title and text to reflect that it is the Australian SASR would help reduce future inaccurate wibble from Google searches.
 
There have been rumblings in the Aus press for a couple of years, not certain if this particular incident, of SASR behavior in Afghanistan. As observed above, this doesn't look good.

Unfortunately it's perfectly possible to be a member of the Forces and a callous, murdering d*ckhead.

Anyone who's in the SF now was very likely weaned on tales by McNab & Co about "dropping them with a double tap" left right & centre & it's probably a very real aspiration.....

SASR is the correct abbreviation for the Australian Special Air Service Regiment
SAS is UK
NZSAS is New Zealand

Taught my boys at a very young age the importance of the double tap. Cowboys and Indians never was the same again!
 
Having watched the 4 Corners doc it does seem that 3 Squadron SASR are a bunch of cowboys.
 
The Blackman defence?
