He wasn't during Internment without trial.This was my first thought too... even though I reprimanded myself a bit for being 'unforgiving'. he will never escape this reaction from a large proportion of the Irish people.
How does this forgiveness thing work though? I mean, he is walking free... if that's not forgiveness, what is? Forgiveness isn't respect.. sometimes it's the absence of punishment and an agreement to be law-abiding in future (being law-abiding is another party that Adams was late too, of course).
I wish he'd count his lucky stars and feck off out of public life, tbh.
