Are they always necessary and do they solve anything? The latest report into the Bloody Sunday "Massacre", has cost the tax-payer over ?200million, and taken over 12 years, earning two of the lawyers involved over ?2million apiece. Some of the agrieved relatives want prosecutions of ex-Army personel in any cases of unlawfull killing, even though this incident occured 35years ago. Q. If the Good Friday agreement gave an amnesty to all the para-militaries involved in "the troubles"; surely such an amnesty should apply to the military and police? :?

The Saville report: killings of 13 demonstrators by British soldiers in Londonderry in 1972 says the shootings were "unjustified".

 

WHAT ABOUT THE UNJUSTIFIED BOMBINGS , SHOOTINGS AND HONOUR KILLINGS AND SLAUGHTER OF MANY INNOCENT MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN BY THE IRA?

 

WHAT ABOUT BLOODY MONDAY, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, FRIDAY, SATURDAY, JANUARY, FEBRUARY, MARCH, APRIL, MAY, JUNE, JULY, AUGUST, SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER, NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER?

Sue,

 

the inquest was not about the IRA, it wasn't about the murders they committed it was about British soldiers; paratroopers, shooting unarmed, protesting civilians. Most were kids of about 17 and unarmed..... regardless of what the IRA did, there can be no justification for soldiers to kill people in cold blood.

 

I mean one was a young man; shot and as he crawled away injured they shot and killed him ...... not right

The point is: that the Good Friday Agreement created an amnesty for all terror groups, many terrorists were released from prison, having been convicted of foul murders, including some who occupy high political office today. SO, if we are not to open old wounds, I would suggest that the principle of an amnesty is applied to ALL incidents prior to the GF Agreement and a line drawn under a sad history. :wink:
