Jimmy C BS: IRA offers to shoot suspects (89* d) RE: BS: IRA offers to shoot suspects 10 Mar 05

People, people, people, enough of this haggling. I agree withe verything " Curator: has said. I lived in a nationalist area also ( New Lodge Road) and I for one would not do anything to allow the police access to my home, WHY - because they will be back to search the house and you can be sure they will find something ( planted by them). The police in Belfast are bigger gangsters than many of the criminals running around the streets. I do however feel it was utterly stupid for he I.R.A. to say they will shoot the ones responsible for Mc Cartney's murder. That sort of statement does nothing to help the situation. One problem I do have is why he was murdered ?. Was it on orders from the I.R.A ? or was it just a street brawl that gor out of hand. Loyalists are being murdered every other week but there is not the hue and cry to pin these murders on the U.F.F. or other loyalists organizations. I suspect Mc Cartney was a hood who was murdered by other hoods who just happened to be or have been members of the I.R.A. You have to remember that many young men joined the I.R.A. to help protect their districts and their homes and families of marauding lioyalists gangs, many with members of the police among them. These same men and women will leave the I.R.A. when this threat no longer exists but unfortunately the threat still exists and the I.R.A. will always be a reality until equality and justice is implemented and that is just not in the cards in the near future. I truly believe that if the I.R.A. was to disband, destroy all the weapons, in fact do everything asked by the govermnment it still would not be good enough. The loyalist want nothing else except their own wee 6 counties with not one catholic living there.

It would clear up a lot of questins if the authorities published the evidence linking the I.R.A. to the bank robbery as well. I believe you are innocent until proven guilty, unless of course you are connected to the I.R.A. - Publish the damn evidence or shut up about who they think is responsible.
