Shots Fired At MQ in Edinburgh

"it is nevertheless very concerning?" WTF does that mean?

We are concerned but our call centre is miles away so we don't give a **** except to give a sound bite to the media ....................

We are so far removed from society that we are completely buggered for an explanation, don't expect arrests any time soon.....

Page three Police Platitudes Reference Book: Make a statement that apparently voices concern but commits us to **** all.

Could be:

A)Mistaken identity; not the first time drug dealers have gone looking for one of their own and brassed up the wrong house/car/person. Vicious bastards, but we're not exactly talking Dr Moriarty-style criminal masterminds.

B)A grudge against the squaddie who's house was fired on.

C)Attempted terrorist attack. Worrying but unlikely; The various NI groups traditionally restricted their activities in Scotland to fund raising, weapon's trafficking etc. The IRA never tried to mount operations against Scottish targets since they believed, not unreasonably, that we were politically insignificant. It was far more effective to attack English cities.

Of course, it could be Islamic extremists. Just because the 2007 Glasgow Airport attack was an Epic Fail does'nt mean someone else might not try again. It was just last year that someone naughty was testing explosives in a Scottish forest...

I would have thought even Lothian and Border's Finest could have arrested someone if it was domestic...

"No, officer, that shotgun is'nt mine...I just happend to find it and pick it up after SOMEONE ELSE shot at the front of my house..."

"Fair enough sir, sorry to have troubled you.":policecap:

It's in the middle of nothing but fields so maybe not beyond the realms of possibility that a pissed-up local was taking a pop at at fox or such and missed?
 
#11
Pissed up local with a shotgun? Could very well be the case. Damn lucky no one was hurt, whoever was to blame.

Could also be Neds who've graduated from air-rifles to something heavier...

Hillside Road - Craigiehall... About as remote a set of MQ's as you can get in Edinburgh... The local cops said...

"This is a quiet residential area, and we believe that local residents would notice anything untoward or any strangers in the area before or after the incident..."

At 00.20 you have to be joking!

I've read some shite from you before on this site, but this is the best yet. You honsetly have no idea what your talking about do you?

Well played; you spout shit about possible "muslim extremists" going around an MQ in Scotland and "brassing up" a door with a shotgun, and start picking me up for a typo. Have you ever considered that some of us may have some experience of the things you blather on about on here.

You are widely regarded as a waltish fool. Over ten thousand posts on an army website, for somebody who works at tesco, the quality was bound to suffer at some point.

Tell me, that weapon in the picture that you are using to take the piss out of me, have you ever fired it? In fact, other than getting binned from 23 selection, what have you done?

Which would be deeply hurtful. Fortunately, I'm a Sociopath and so don't really care what other people think of me.

Now, if you have children, do them a favour and kill them; they are better off dead than going through life with your untermenschen DNA.

Nothing but love for you...
