You need to ask after this whether the Army was very upset that the prosecution had fell through or very relieved that their reputation was not going to be dragged through the mud.
The accused will certainly be relieved that their Police were so slipshot in their investigation while the allegedly bullied recruits will have learned the lesson that complaining gets you nothing other than a reputation as pathetic whinger.

Yep, they are supposed to be trained to the same standard, same principles, similar laws, etc. However, they don't have the same depth of experience - especially when it comes to investigating serious, complex and historic crime.

Er, because they have - on ocassion - the same slack standards?

Possibly, but the civvy police are MUCH better at managing (deliberate?) fukcups with subtlety; if one can believe the report, the incompetence shown here was unbelievably crass and obvious. Perhaps senior RMP should go on the senior command course at the National Police College?

I wonder what will happen to the named and shamed alleged 'naughty' instructors. We wouldn't want them to be subject to any barrack room justice. Not these days. Oh no.

Its about time Service police were disbanded and all offences were investigated by actual police.

IMHO all criminal acts perpetrated in the UK should be investigated by the civil police. However the Armed Forces do need their own police function when outside the jurisdiction of UK criminal law.

This particular business seems to be the fruit of employing boneheads, but mind you the ordinary plod have form for that.
