    How many RUC joined the PSNI? Only 13 RIC joined the Gardaí.

    Edward Carson was nothing more than a nasty director of terrorism. He was more than happy to usurp democracy so that an elite in the North east would continue to enjoy false status under British misrule.

    He led the UVF which was a force set up to threaten the Irish people with conflict if the democratic will of the Irish nation was granted. Nobody can ever call that man a democrat.

    The RUC were nothing more than a terrorist police force set up to keep Irish republicanism down. They murdered multitudes of Irish people and coluded with their buddies the Loyalist terrorists (off duty RUC / UDR) to murder Irish people simply becuase they were Irish and stood up for their rights that were being denied.

    If it were possible for an Irish person to be taken in by Sinn Fein republican propaganda,would that make him a deluded fool?
