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:

  1. Interesting looking programme on SO19 on ITV starting 2100 10/2/2009

  2. Liked one of the quotes from one of the SO19 chaps;

    "We've got the guns so we're in charge".

    Like it. :wink:
  3. Young lad found near a shooting, wearing one glove on his right hand and body armour- Clearly innocent!

  4. The six shooter in the motor may prove to be a bit conclusive for the case for the prosecution......
  5. I'd imagine so. Just happened after I had posted, talk about a twist in the story- Never saw that coming. :wink:

    CPS wont run with that! If they do Im sure the Judge will give the lad another chance. :x
  7. Liked the hard stop they did on the chap in the Megane convertible. :D

    Even if the cunt wasn't armed, he'll certainly think twice about carrying a shooter in the future.

    Quite shocking to see the stockpile of gats collected over the month.
  8. Anyone be kind enough to stick on youtube for those of us not in Blighty?
  9. been a good 2 hours on itv tonight. Bit of an eye opener on both shows.

    Did you see the seized firearms for ONE month. Jesus!

    I know there are some on here who give the police a kicking, god knows why, but think of this. Yes lads of ours are doing the business far away but these are 15 yrs olds in London carrying firearms and prepared to use them.

    Front lines are not always in far away places.

    I mean an AK47, Uzi and several modern pistol seized and that is one month.

  11. are these guys just the ARV coppers?

    or does it show the Specialist Firearms Officers??

    If it does, I'm slightly worried as I thought these guys are supposed to be proper nails, as I read in a CO19 book that members of THEM have detachments with the Specialist Firearms Officers.

    But these guys didnt come across via the documentary as very intelligent or physically robust.

    Granted if its just the ARV guys, but I would have thought that the Specialist Firearms Officers are super ninja!
  12. you were right!!!!
  13. Indeed, this made for an interesting watch.

    Just think, that fella who shot at the Police Officers who was handed a life sentance, will probably only serve 6 or so years.

    Justice Justice Justice.
  14. That is a bog standard ARV relief....... The entry level of the CO19 world, people do that for a couple of years or so before beginning to move up through the levels to SFO and instructing. The ARV Inspectors will probably be on their second or third tours.... SILVER (who I know) would have been the local inspector for the borough.
