Subject: RE: BS: True IRA ?? Who are they ?
I was quoting the city's coroner, retired British Army Major Hubert O'Neill, from his statement on 21 August 1973, at the completion of the inquest into the people killed. He publicly stated:
"This Sunday became known as Bloody Sunday and bloody it was. It was quite unnecessary. It strikes me that the Army ran amok that day and shot without thinking what they were doing. They were shooting innocent people. These people may have been taking part in a march that was banned but that does not justify the troops coming in and firing live rounds indiscriminately. I would say without hesitation that it was sheer, unadulterated murder. It was murder." Pretty informed opinion I'd say.

You might be waiting for the report for a very long time. Maybe there waiting until all involved in murder are no longer around to be brought to justice.

I have stated before on many occasions that I abhor all murder of innocents. It doesn't matter which side commits it.
