    Default Chinese Asylum Seeker arrested for Kilkenny postal m.urder

    According to some of the tabloids this morning it is a Chinese man that the Gardai have in custody for the m.urder of the 32 year old Kilkenny postmaster Alan Cunniffe.

    It does beg the question how did a Chinese guy get a hold of a handgun. I mean it hardly came from the IRA!

    What does the nationality of the person arrested matter.?

    Matters a lot IMO. As I said how did a Chinese guy come to be in possession of a handgun, odds are it was imported by one of his own! Plus I do think it is very relevant to point out non-nationals that are involved in serious crime in particular gun crime.

    Maybe he bought it from Martin Ferris!

    So you would agree with the highlighting of the fact that someone is Irish if they were arrested anywhere outside of Ireland for a suspected crime. Also how do you know this person was not born in Ireland and is not an Irish citizen.

    If this were the case then they wouldn't/shouldn't have referred to him as Chinese. It is much more probable that he is one of those who came in with theses bogus English language school visas. I am sure we will know much more by the time of the Sunday papers.

    I doubt it. Martin had his closing down sale some time ago.

    EVERYTHING MUST GO! And it did, or so we are led to believe?

    I see you ignored the first part of my reply.

    If it is proved that Martin Ferris sold him the gun (and no doubt the Sunday Indo will have an exclusive showing just that by tomorrow) then perhaps we should institute some kind of border controls on Kerry North.

    After all we can't have these types of Nerrymen/Korthers coming into our country.

    And some of them can't even speak proper English!
