Another atrocity in NI

Well they haven't gone away obviously as they just murdered Journalist Lyra McKee.

A talented young lady, an example of her work below on the scourge of suicide on young folk in NI.

I can't understand these people. What do they expect to achieve that won't happen in time anyway I wonder.

I hope they are quickly caught and dealt with. I feel very strongly that anyone engaging in terrorist activity should be given a very long sentence and that murder, handling of weapons etc. should earn them life without remission.

Lyra in action, we can't afford the loss of such good people whilst the evil men move in the shadows serving up hate.

Seems like no one knows why this happened. No rhyme or reason.

Ray.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com
Brexit is madness orchestrated by the insane.

There are those in society that will do anything to become famous, this includes random killings.

I hazard a good guess that as she was reporting from beside a PSNI landover during a riot situation that the gunman was hoping to shot a police officer.

Unfortunately achieving fame would not be a reason, given the cell structure they operate under only one or two will be aware of who fired the shot. Their only reason is to terrorise decent people in a warped hope of achieving their dream of Irish unification by force.

Disgraceful and tragic. These people never went away really. I dont think it would take much for it all to kick off again.

I am very sad at this news and send my condolences to her family and the NI Community in general.


Lessons to be learned?


Did these scum really surrender their weapons, or did they re-arm? I suspect re-arm, then there is no ballistic evidence to connect the weapon to past crimes, already exonerated.


Was it a random act by a rogue operator? Did he have the gun at home or was it 'supplied'? Where is it now - back in the 'armoury', deep in the countryside?


Why fire indiscrimately? Indicates the mindset of those who just hate the 'British', which in their mind includes the police who work for them. In the Troubles a lot of the killings and knee-cappings were targetted between the Republicans and the Loyalists, but the police and army were general targets.




I hope that this murder of an innocent journalist might cause some backlash even in the community from which this murderer came, but I will not hold my breath.


If this riot is a celebration of the Easter Uprising, maybe they should try it in Dublin and see what reception they get there from the Garda.


I know these comments are coming from an 'outsider', so if those who live in the Province wish to correct me please do so.
