Police shoot 3 terrorists dead in London - will these armed officers face prosecutions in 30 years time ?
Because that is what is already going on with ex- soldiers and the Royal Ulster Constabulary GC right now in Northern Ireland. For example, people like Dennis Hutchings, a man of almost 80 years of age is due soon to appear in court in Belfast for an incident that occured in 1972 when he was a serving soldier in the Province. He has previously appeared in court in NI. The last time he appeared, the judge threw out the most serious charge. But the IRA's lawyer Barra McGrory, who is in current charge of the DPP in Northern Ireland re-imposed that serious charge.
Is this fear of possible future prosecution at the back of the minds of the brave men and women who must take the fight to these terrorists and need to open fire ? Will they be afraid of opening fire or even returning fire ? Will they hesitate ? Politicians of both Labour & Conservative have allowed and encouraged this sad state of affairs to develop and carry on.
