    Who cares? A callous, cold blooded murder of a man who had just been to see his wife and baby son and you post this cac?!
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    Damon clearly demonstrates his willingness to stoop to new lows to score points on a politic's forum. Petty.

    Good to see the high standard of debate is maintained here by the usual suspects.

    The RUC man was killed supposidly in the cause of a unlted Ireland. My point was that when killing local members of the security forces, their families would probably be lost to that cause forever. So even though it was callous and cold blooded, it was also self defeating.

    It's hard, unless you lived through those days, to realise just how terrible they were - he had just been to the funeral of a murdered friend.
