Single punch killer "ex-squaddie" found guilty

#1
Some little bastard supposed ex-squaddie has been found guilty of killing a guy in Cardiff http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/south_east/7106027.stm

The thing is, they say this guy is an ex-soldier, but he's only 20 years old. Which means he didn't even do the minimum time in the mob! Allegedly this guy Peter Muscat had "boxed in the past", which sounds like he did boxing during basic training and probably didn't even pass out.

I did a bit of searching and found this page http://icwales.icnetwork.co.uk/news...m-felled-like-a-tree-by-punch-91466-20088227/ which says he's a "former trainee soldier". So the BBC is out there claiming this murdering wee shite is an ex-soldier when he was only ever a recruit.

Bunch of bastards - he wasn't even a real soldier! I might complain.

I just submitted a request on the BBC website "contact us" section, saying:

Concerning the story "Single punch killer found guilty" at http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/south_east/7106027.stm.

I am rather concerned at the claim that this killer is described as "former soldier", when he was no such thing. He is a former Army recruit, who was kicked out of basic training and never became a qualified soldier. This sensationalised story gives credence to those who would believe that our armed forces personnel are prone to bouts of uncontrolled violence. I would like to request that the story is amended to say that he is a former trainee soldier or a former army recruit and not a "former soldier". Many thanks.
Bunch of squaddie-hating cnuts.

Complaint is due, no mention is made if the guy is a former bus-driver, chimney sweep, shop assistant, or gynaecologist, but if they've worn uniform once to cadets they become a butal killing automaton.

If we all killed every tit that got on our wick there'd be room to spare in England, and fewe scrrotes.

The bbc have a habit of it, even mentioning it in the headline like this one:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/west_yorkshire/7083895.stm

If he had been a gas-fitter would that be in the headline or flourist? (Gasfitter drives down pedestrians, no, it would be Man drives down pedestrians).

I don't agree with what the lad done, but the BBC imply, by the headline, that him being a soldier is central his behaviour. The only reason that 'soldier' should be in the headline if he had been 'on duty' when it happened.

Except for the Rock Apes obviously as they got a gold stat on the SFSG spelling test. :)

Well, the fact remains - regardless of occupation crime is crime - I suppose a serial killer who worked as a butcher would get a mention too!

Just goes to show that we will always be easy target for media - who know how society picture a stereotype soldier - lock your doors and hide your families - squaddie on leave with cash in pocket at a local bar near you!

Hmmmmm, now there's an idea.

It is infuriating but not unusual, a bloke up here got done for fiddeling last year and was placed on the register, and guess what the headline said??

your right Ex soldier commits.

The guy was in the RLC 8 weeks. He spent longer in jail than he did in the army (not long enough though)

Shit happens, they were both unlucky. He hit the bloke once, I seriously doubt he intended to kill him.
