'Never trust a convert, because they've too much to prove' - Someone, sometime, somewhere..Lenny Murphy was an Ulster loyalist gang leader believed responsible for the murders of innocent Catholics..
I've watched the interviews of the SB involved. It boggles the mind, so it does..Due to a lack of evidence to try him for the killings, which his followers had already received long sentences for....
'The Shankill Butchers were responsible for the deaths of at least 23 people. Murphy's family denied he had had a violent nature or was involved with the Butchers: "My Lenny could not have killed a fly", said his mother Joyce. The UVF gave Murphy a paramilitary funeral attended by thousands of loyalists and several unionist politicians. On his gravestone in Carnmoney cemetery were inscribed the words: "Here Lies a Soldier".'....Murphy was released in 1982 and returned to the Shankhill Road, where he embarked on a murder spree.
Horrific stuff altogether, even by the standards of the Dirty War.
