I just read the article: “Ex-soldier faces jail for handing in gun”, [ http://www.thisissurreytoday.co.uk/news/Ex-soldier-faces-jail-handing-gun/article-1509082-detail/article.html ]
and I'm wondering if common sense and morality have any place left in this N.W.O. controlled world.
The soldier, who is obviously skilled in handling weapons, has been sent to jail for doing what he considered his reasonable duty, that of turning in a found weapon to the police. But, no, he was found guilty of “possessing a weapon”.
It wasn't his weapon. He found it tossed over his back fence in garbage back. He went and looked to see what was in the bag, and found the discarded weapon. He didn't know what to do with the thing, but recalled that a leaflet printed by Surrey Police “explaining to citizens what they can do at a police station, which included "reporting found firearms". I would have had the same reaction and taken the weapon to the police station myself. Not in England, They will arrest you, convict you, and send you to jail.
Apparently, any citizen is simply supposed to report it. I'm assuming here. His lawyer, Mr Clarke, asked a police office in court, “Are you aware of any notice issued by Surrey Police, or any publicity given to, telling citizens that if they find a firearm the only thing they should do is not touch it, report it by telephone, and not take it into a police station?" The police officer replied, “No, I don't believe so." So this soldier, having no specific guidelines for his actions took the intuitive route. Wrong move.
Be safe. Don't dare and touch it or carry to a safe place like the police department. No, that won't work. It doesn't say in the article if he'd been treated like a first class citizen if he had simply reported it. It implies that might have been a better reaction. But, I doubt it.
It appears to me that the English paranoia and instilled fear of weapons have bent the minds of the police and court system (justice department, yeah, right) into treating citizens like crap. This was the real issue here. I don't think there was anything, any action the soldier could have done that would have been considered acceptable. Read the article for yourself.
As another person who commented on this article said, “Don't trust the police any longer.” The soldier's honest attempt was considered “irrelevant”. No allowance for the circumstances. I'll bet the soldier's reaction now is that he should have taken the bag and tossed it over someone elses fence into their backyard. Definitely do NOT do what you consider the reasonable action. Not in England.
I think the Brits have gone off their rails! Hope that this infection doesn't come to America!
