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:

    @Sixty: I'm presuming it was the one referring to an on-going paedophilia trial in Liverpool.

    Seen. Cheers.
     
  7. To provide you with an answer, a thread about an active prosecution could breach the Sub Judice rules and therefore the site owners (and posters) could be held for contempt of court. I would imagine it's safer to delete it than to run the risk of posts breaching the rules.
     
  8. So people that have **** all to do with the case are not allowed to talk about it?
     
  9. How dare anyone have a debate on any wrongdoings committed by our ethnic brethren. Would it have been binned if the perpetrators were white English citizens?
     
  10. We best inform the Press in that case.
     

  11. Not if it may influence the decision of the Jury. Members of a jury could log onto Arrse during a break in court, read the posts and be swayed by them.

    it also protects the prosecution case from a defence cry of foul "how can my client possible have a fair trial with all this posted about him on the internet."
     
  12. So the jury cant look at a newspaper or watch the news?
     

  13. I just recieved a 4 point infraction for Islamophobic drivel off that thread.....
    Not that I'm sure what the 4 points bit means!

    I think I'm supposed to apologise or some such, I'm not quite so sure why.
     
  14. I only had a post deleted. I thought I'd been quite polite, but hey ho.
     
  15. I think you've already said too much, son!
