Thread: Joe Duffy and the killing of Brian Stack

  1. #1

    Default Joe Duffy and the killing of Brian Stack

    For the past two days, Joe Duffy has raised the issue of the killing of Brian Stack, the head prison officer in Portlaoise. He was shot in 1983 and died in 1984. Mr.Stack's son was interviewed on Monday and called for the case to be reopened. Although he didn't rule out IRA/INLA involvement, Austin Stack suspected that he could have been killed for discovering information that 'would rock the foundations of the state'.

    Regardless of this assertion in the interview, Duffy went on today to put the blame firmly in the direction of the 'provisional' IRA [Sticky talk for the IRA]. A political prisoner was also interviewed today saying that Stack was a brutal prison guard and that republican groups certainly had a motive to kill him. Duffy paraphrased this to say that a former member of the 'provisional' IRA had just admitted that the IRA had killed the man. To make matters more bizarre, a senior member of the prison officers union then came on and said he believed that the IRA did not commit the killing. Poor Joe was unimpressed, castigating the man for having had talks with the 'provisional' leadership before and after the killing in order to make sure officers weren't targeted. I hope this case is re-opened but don't expect the Special Branch and the cops to come up with any conclusions that dont resemble Joe 'sticky' Duffy.

    Joe Duffy said the IRA done it saying there was enough evidence in Martin Ferris's book to say it was them.Sometimes Joe lets his own Anti Republican agenda in the way of finding the truth.

    I only heard the first 15 minutes of the show but I thought the Sinn-Fein-IRA gun man who was being interviewed about life in prison went out of his way to slander Stack and destroy his reputation. Of course legally you can't slander the dead so RTE are covered but I would thought it was completely unacceptable and they should not have allowed a convicted enemy of our democratic state air time to make such wild allegations.

    The man should be down on his knees begging for societies forgiveness for the henious crimes he committed and thanking his lucky stars he wasn't convicted these in the sort of socialist dictatorship he fought to impose on the rest of us because if he had been he would have recieved a lengthy torture followed by a short trial and swift execution and therefore wouldn't be able to spew his propaganda on the airwaves 20 years later.

    what do you expect from the Irish media ...

    I saw the Sunday World last wekend linked the Aryan Brotherhood White Supremacists in American jails to Sinn Fein, on the basis that they had shamrocks tattooed onto themselves...

    I mean where else would people buy this muck (i didn't by the way, it was shown to me)
    1,197 people agree with me.. how many agree with you ?

    Yeah don't libel the stickies.

    Seriously, there's nothing potentially libelous written. It reflects everything that was said. I had to laugh at Joe Duffy today (I do that regularly). He kept rabbitting on about the PIRA and about Martin Ferris' book and that it must have been them that did it. As General Hoche put it, Duffy completely turned what an ex-prisoner said around into "This guy more or less said that they did it" and then said that because Martin Ferris described him as a vindictive and brutal man that it MUST have been the IRA.

    He was none too impressed when the former General Secretary of the Prison Officers Assoc. came on and said that neither he or any of the officers he worked with thought that it was the IRA.

    Nice one Joe.

    Does Joe really have sticky links.Was listening to him when driving back to work and his conclusions were irrational-maybe he was trying to play devils advocate but as far as I am concerned he made himself look fairly stupid.

    Did you hear Stack's former colleague refute these wild allegations? No?

    I wonder why.
