Subject: RE: BS: Soldiers Convicted of Crimes in NI
Oh, I almost forgot this on-topic gem from Divis:

"British soldiers charged with rape, GBH, domestic violence, robbery,glassing some kid at a dancehall and murder. Local papers often cover it. Hard to believe these guys are actually paid to keep law and order !"

So the PIRA Apologists criteria has changed from "Convicted or Crimes" to "Charged with Crimes". I know that the Provisionals were never really big on the concept of law and order, but there is a whale of a difference in somebody being convicted of something and someone being charged with something - the presumption of innocence until proven guilty concept applies here Divis.
