Well, I suppose this is as inevitable as night following day…
“A prison officer has been murdered after shots were fired at his car, which then crashed on the M1 in Northern Ireland. The shooting happened on the Belfast bound carriageway between the M12 Portadown exit and the Lurgan interchange at 07:30 GMT on Thursday.
The man who died was very experienced and had worked through the Troubles. Police are investigating a link between the attack and a burnt-out car found in Lurgan, County Armagh. NI’s first and deputy first ministers condemned this “brutal attack”. In a joint statement, Peter Robinson and Martin McGuinness said there could be no justification for this murder. “People who work for the Prison Service play a crucial role in our community and any attack on them is an attack on all of us,” they said.
How touching of former Provo godfather and now pillar of the appeasement community Martin McGuinness to point out the vital role played by our Prison Officers. His IRA killed 30 of them over the years and injured hundreds more. Who is responsible for that, Marty? If it is wrong NOW, was it wrong THEN? The hypocrisy of the politicians here is limitless. They are the people who institutionalised terrorism and we see the likes of Gerry Kelly as a senior much loved Sinn Fein figure and putative future Justice Minister. You WILL recall Kelly shot a prison officer IN THE HEAD.
