    Default Police Failure our Turning the Blind Eye

    ‘Police failures led to gun murder’ - Headlines - Belfast Newsletter

    The PSNI/RUC failed their first test. They did not stop a murder gang despite attempts on murder earlier that night. I think it is reasonable to ask were they really so incompetent?

    Has the PSNI/RUC released anything on the case? Or are they hoping it all goes away?

    For unionism this is as good as it gets, for nationalism this is the worse it can be.

    Looks like collusion hasn't gone away.

    Bet those who support the PSNI and turn a blind eye to their collusion are up in arms about 'green on blue' collusion and police/security deficiencies in Afghanistan...

    "The panel claimed the Lawlor investigation was a litmus test for the PSNI to see if policing had changed in Northern Ireland and said it was a test it “demonstrably failed”.

    Ain't that the truth. Just look at Baggot's reaction to HET reports on colusion

    Ian Paisley Junior has defended approving a secondment request for PSNI officers to train Libyan police.

    Earlier his DUP party colleague, Nigel Dodds, said whoever approved the move was "living on a different planet".

    The Libyans should ask for a refund.

    It claimed serious deficiencies in the subsequent investigation of the crime, namely failures to interview potential witnesses and suspects and take appropriate forensic measures, amounted to collusion.
    There is no evidence that officers knew that there was a plan to murder Gerard Lawlor or that they assisted the murderers.

    By that token, there is no evidence they did anything to stop an armed Loyalist gang roaming North Belfast looking for Catholics to kill.

    Well you either think that they are completely stupid, or alternatively, and more likely, you are absolutely stupid yourself.
    From the Newsletter article:
    The panel said police did not do enough in response to a series of murder bids by loyalists in the same area in the hours before Mr Lawlor was gunned down.
    I'm getting a little tired of these silly interventions from the menagerie of wet-behind-the-ear southern neo-conservatives, blueshirts, and all-out right-wing headbangers, who know nothing about what goes on here.
