Bollocks, if he was cop doing the same thing the public would be baying for his job. I've worked been in fights with cops who have had their jaws broken/bottled etc trying to arrest people and we didnt hit them afterwards(even though we REALLY wanted too), as much as I feel sorry for him, I'm sick of the public and Arrse double standards when it comes to this crap.. He knew what he was doing.

I'm fairly sure that he was a Marine. Not a "Community Service Police Staff Officer" or whatever you pointless people call yourselves nowadays.

And please; you have the choice.

RCM is a typo (not my doing) but can't be changed till petition closes

"Check out the full story, make your own judgement"

No apologies needed for not signing.

And have to agree "the Policemans lot, is not a happy one"

He may have been wrong but he should not have been thrown out of the RM for which he had eighteen years decent service or have his pension suspended. A diciplinary action and a possible demotion would surely have sufficed. It's not like he murdered the prisoner or broke him in any permanant way he just whacked him with a boot not the most shocking of warcrimes. Petition signed.

Condensed version...

The court martial heard Leader and Wheelhouse later burst into a tent where 48-year-old Ekhlas was being held and struck him around the head with the rubber boot, causing a cut lip, two loosened teeth and facial bruising.

The court rejected Sgt Leader’s defence (which he still fervently insists is the truth) that he was trying to stop the man from escaping.

Although Capt Wheelhouse admitted a charge of causing actual bodily harm, Sgt Leader denied it, saying he acted in self-defence against a ‘dangerous and violent prisoner’.
Preventing a "dangerous and violent prisoner" from escaping with a welly... Right!

No, not at all. But it gives a little bit more info than the petition page I was directed to.

Plus I like the Mail as it resounds with my reactionary views. So it must be true


Hehehhehe

If Sgt Leader was the victim of an unjust sentence, why did he not appeal?
He has done. First via the Daily Mail and now Facebook. :wink:
