    SAS hero jailed: Sergeant sentenced to two years after gun found in his garage

    An SAS veteran has been locked up for two years after a gun and ammo was found in his garage at home.

    The hero sergeant was pulled from secret operations in Helmand when armed police discovered the semi-automatic Glock pistol following a tip-off.

    I am glade I don't live over there, they need to do someting to correct things like this

    Someone certainly 'stabbed him in the back'.

    That's disgusting. He is out actively defending your coutries interests, and you seek him out and arrest him because someone who had a beef with him tattled.

    You are authorized to kill people using an assault weapon and drive a tank, and call down air strikes where you currently are stationed, but we are going to throw you in the brig for having a pistol back in storage. Nice.

    The soldier may still be allowed to continue his service once released.
    If I were him, my response would be..."Yeah, right! Up yer bum wid dat, boyo... You think I'm gonna defend a country who wants me to protect her but won't let me protect myself? Bloody Pom Planks! I'll go become a Yank, no wonder we lost to 'em!"

    As one commenter said (paraphrasing).. 'send him over here, I'll put him up'.. and I'll do one better.. .I'll sponsor him for citizenship... and Buy him a Glock and replace all the ammo he lost, too.

    Sigh...

    We have, and always will have, many veterans in our own jails. Folks break the law here all the time as well.
    Not just concerning guns. While we should be lenient wherever possible, I'm sure our own vets would be
    sentenced to jail time if they were found with a hollow point bullet in their possession in New Jersey.

    What part of obeying the law where you are is so hard to understand. What part of accepting
    punishment for something you deliberately did in violation of the law is not understood.

    I'm sorry that the guy is in trouble. He put himself there. Don't blame their gun laws.
    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    You make a good point Hopy... the military oath for the Brits is as follows:

    I... swear by Almighty God that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, Her Heirs and Successors, and that I will, as in duty bound, honestly and faithfully defend Her Majesty, Her Heirs and Successors, in Person, Crown and Dignity against all enemies, and will observe and obey all orders of Her Majesty, Her Heirs and Successors, and of the generals and officers set over me. So help me God.
    Somewhat similar to ours... but I wonder if the Queen has to approve the laws of England (as our President does)? If not, he broke no oath to his service... at least not directly.

    I'm sure the progeny of Benedict Arnold, who turned in the Sgt., is proud of his deed.
    Rats!

    While this is all true, it's still a sad state of affairs.

    Hop, I was not mad at the police for doing their job, it was more incredulity and exasperation at the rediculousness of the sittuation.

    But just because there is a law, does not make the law right or proper. This example just highlights how assinine their laws are.

    This.

    While I don't claim to excuse the sergeant's flaunting of the law, I do condemn the unjust laws that made his actions criminal in the first place.

    You can play by the rules or not. If you decide not, then you have to brace yourself for the consequences. The US has many laws that I don't agree with but follow because its a losing battle not worth fighting. I wish the sergeant well and hope a US citizenship is in his future if that's what he wants.

    I think the rest of SAS should decide to vacate their positions until this is corrected!

    Personally, I don't see the problem. He knew the laws, he broke the laws, he pays the consequences, your occupation should have no effect what-so-ever on this issue.

    Whether you agree with a law or not, you still need to follow them like all of us do. It's unfortunate the choice he made, but he consciously made it.
