Probably a reprint, does the printed version of the Spectator come out on 16th?

Do you accept that as fact?
Yeah that's true - they weren't mad gunmen on a shooting spree, they were soldiers, highly trained NOT to be mad gunmen on a shooting spree.

Well if you were right then Bloody Sunday wouldn't have happened. Obviously they did look like targets.

Troubling yet not surprising to see the amount of people online that hold their army to the same standards as gutter terrorists

Dance on the head of a pin with semantics all you want.

You're talking about a fcuking atrocity committed against innocent civilians in this country,against the backdrop of some of this island's darkest hours.


You're not describing a ps4 session of call of duty.
Show some decency and respect.
Ffs!

A target like Gerard McKinney? Shot in the chest at Abbey Park. A soldier ran through an alleyway from Glenfada Park and shot him from a few yards away. Witnesses said that when he saw the soldier, McKinney stopped and held up his arms, shouting "Don't shoot! Don't shoot!", before being shot. The bullet apparently went through his body and struck Gerard Donaghy behind him

Innocent people were killed by soldiers. No need to start effing at me. I believe it's the person/people who put aggressive front line soldiers in a civilian environment that are more to blame.
