England cracks down on SAS veteran
A Iraq veteran, 17n years service, 11 in SAS, has been given an 18 month sentence after being found in possession of a Glock. If he'd just been a burglar, he'd likely have been ignored, or given probation.

I wonder if he is going to kill ever dam one of them when he gets out?

Not surprising for a country that used to put a homeowner in prison if he successfully defended himself against a knife wielding home invader. (Whoever was left standing at the end of a fight went to prison, regardless of circumstances.) The Crown has an absolute monopoly on violence, and will do strange and wonderful things to remind you of it.

Isn't this disparity in sentencing a Status crime? You're a member of the responsible class,therefore you get real punishment?
