SF/IRA Good Cop Bad Cop Routine...

SINN Fein was yesterday accused of creating a “hierarchy of victims” after it tried to justify apologising for the IRA murder of Garda Jerry McCabe while declining to do so for security force members killed in Northern Ireland.
Basically it is now deemed wrong to have murdered a 'good' cop but not to have murdered a 'bad'* cop...

*(ie a proddy one or a turncoat one)

Sinn Fein MLA Mitchel McLaughlin came out on Wednesday evening to try and differentiate between people the IRA murdered in the Republic and those whose lives it took in Northern Ireland.
The '32 county' party continuing it's program of different policy's for different parts of the 26/6

UUP justice spokesman Tom Elliott said it was not that long ago that Sinn Fein was justifying all murders “but now that seems to be changing”.

He said: “I find it astounding that they can say that the situation was vastly different in the Republic of Ireland to that in Northern Ireland. How can they say that? Murder is murder. They are trying to create a hierarchy of victims.
just like his post election speech Big Tom tells it as it is..

Fianna Fail justice spokesperson Niall Collins said: “In response to requests for a similar apology for the murder of some 273 police officers in the North at the hands of the Provisional IRA, Sinn Fein moved quickly to dismiss the idea, claiming that the murder of a policeman in one part of the country was ‘vastly different’ to the murder of a policeman in another part of the country.
273 more apologies due for a shared future...

SDLP policing spokesperson Conall McDevitt said: “Sinn Fein keeps telling us they want to build reconciliation but yet refuse to acknowledge that truth and reconciliation are two sides of the same coin. You cannot build a reconciled society on historic revisionism and retrospective justification of indefensible acts.

“It is frankly sickening that Sinn Fein would now seek to make a differentiation between the murder of a garda and that of an RUC officer.”
indeed Conall but sure it's getting hard to differentiate between SDLP and SF/IRA...

DUP MLA Arlene Foster said the comments expose “just how hollow Sinn Fein’s reconciliation calls actually are”. She said: “Declan Kearney appears to be as removed from reality as Gerry Adams with these attempts to differentiate between murders on different sides of a border which Sinn Fein claims not to recognise. Those who serve their community as police officers are no different whether it is in Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland.

“Similarly, the murder of anyone who stepped forward to serve their community and uphold the rule of law is equally wrong whether it took place in Northern Ireland or in the Republic.”

Sinn Féin will eventually appologise for all IRA violence one day, the IRA will be chipped off for political confidence the way Ruairí Ó Brádaigh was.

I'm only surprised they started this early.

SF/IRA think that by the time they admit that a UI will never happen, there will have been so many u-turns no one will notice...

The British are experts at this. They'll apologise for Bloody Sunday but not other acts of terrorism, violence and injustice it has bestowed the Irish people in their struggle for liberation.

Will the British apologise for ALL their acts of imperialism and brutality worldwide?

Typical fascist response from our resident fascist anti fascist, who always responds in similar fashion when confronted with uncomfortable truths and facts...

It is quite frankly sickening that Connall's party for decades called on nationalists to lend their support to what was a paramilitary police force engaged in a murder campaign by proxy against the nationalist people of the north.

They never supported the Provos, and they signed up for reforming rules for the current police force a hell of a lot faster than Sinn Féin did. When did SF members join policing boards again?

Why were the RUC disbanded if they were a proper, neutral police force?

This furore over the Cop being shot in Louth is a joke. If it was the person behind the desk in the Credit Union it wouldn't have received 30 seconds coverage.

True. The SDLP supported the RUC.
Nationalists backed our stance on policing reform, and as many backed the SDLP at the time with first preferences as back Sinn Féin now. The RUC reform came through a mere year or two of democratic activity in comparison to 30 years of PIRA violence against them.

Maybe coz the RUC started the conflict by murdering the 1st victims of the troubles in 1969 [when the Pira didn't even exist]?

The vast majority of Irish people never supported the PIRA during the troubles.

All Nationalists backed policing reform because the police force that was the RUC were discredited, the industrial scale of state collusion became apparent and that so called police service had to go the way of the dodo. To insuate Nationalists as a whole supported the RUC because they voted SDLP is at best mis-leading.

The mere year or two of democratic activity may have taken a lot longer had it not been for the actions of brave young men and women who refused to kowtow to the likes of the RUC.

The RUC weren't a police force. They were a bunch of sectarian thugs dressed up in Uniform. This is evidenced by the fact that the European Parliament compiled a report on it and called for its immediate disbandment which thankfully happened.

The current PSNI is a neutral police force who's members are drawn from right across the community and its entitled to everyone's loyalty and respect.
