    Default 4 Loyalist men beat up 14-year-old catholic boy

    A teenager has suffered facial injuries after he was attacked and beaten by four men in north Belfast.

    The 14-year-old boy was attacked at Alliance Parade in the city at about 0400 BST on Sunday. He was taken to hospital. His condition is stable.

    It is great to see the "proud sons of Ulster" bravely protecting their British way of life,

    Can you point out where, in the report, it mentions 'loyalist men' or a 'Catholic boy'? Thanks.

    In your link it doesnt mention the religion of the boy or that the thugs were loyalist.

    You are a bigotted fool! No mention of the religion of the boy or his attackers. No mention of what he was doing out and about in the early hours.

    You have a twisted mind.

    A case of justifiably shooting the messenger. The message is clear...

    The two things to note here is

    a) How does the poster know the religion of the attack and the political stance of the attacker? How does the poster know if this a sectarian attack?

    b) Whilst we should be skeptical and question the source of this accusation, it is also worth noting that the reporting of loyalist violence has sometimes been left unidentified and creates an image of all sides participating rather then actually blaming the culprits. This trend is not usually followed when reporting Republican violence.

    1) There is no notification whatsoever of the victim's religion.
    2) What the hell was a 14 year old boy doing out at 4AM?!?
    3) What the hell were his parents doing about him being out?

    This is an attempt to stir up republican posters and will/has failed. There is no place today for secarian shite like this.
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    Maybe a warning by site mods might help

    Well, we should give the original poster a chance to explain why they wrote what they did, and the evidence they have for such an accusation.

    let us not be so hasty to condemn him, he created the thread of Saturday so to give out about it now without the opportunity for him to explain is a bit severe.

    Give the poster an opportunity to explain before we think of calling for Mods to alter the thread
