Interesting reaction from the police service 48 years after the event.
I wonder how they feel about Gerry Adams breathing the sweet air of freedom every day?
Numerous other examples of double standards are also available.

when did this become the ' WTF's Daily Controversy Forum' instead of the Lewes Forum? I don't mind a couple of random threads, but this is getting quite tedious.

He's served more than his time so why not release him, I imagine he's unlikely to do it again?! Strange how the old bill get more protection than the rest of us.........

Why bring Gerry Adams name into this. He is a politician and free and innocent due to the fact that had the RUC/PSNI had any evidence they would have happily jailed him

Hi Bored, its a news headline that caught my attention, I'd never heard of this man and his crime before as it was before my time. What can I say, it piqued my interest. Apologies if it "bores" you, maybe don't read my posts in the future, then they cant annoy you anymore.

WTF, just take a look at how many controversy seeking threads you start. It is a little tedious on a local town Forum. You may be better off on one of the more appropriate forums, like the ones where you are reading these headlines.....

Totally agree with you, WTF.
They have the most appalling double standards.

Haven't heard the name of Harry Roberts mentioned since the 80's when he was praised on most football terraces.

Harry Roberts wasn't sung about on "most football terraces" he was sung about by supporters of the biggest small club in the world.

WTF used to get on my wick until I read Bored and Also Bored - what a pair of bores you two sound - at least WTF has an opinion that isn't lukewarm and limp.
Strange how both of you use the word tedious - you could almost be the same person

3 points of interest.
1) his mum was a prolific fence who ran the George pub in Wanstead, so parental influence may have something to do with it
2) he was taught to kill without mercy including defenceless prisoners when he served in Kenya during the Mau Mau rebellion, so we might learn a lesson about reintegrating soldiers into society . It's shocking how many of those who served in recent conflicts have been so screwed up by it that they have ended up in prison
3) he was told when sentenced that he had a minimum term of 30 and would not get out even after that unless he was no longer deemed dangerous. We live in a country where court rulings should be carried out so if he is still dangerous he should stay locked up and if he is not he should be paroled. He will be on life licence so can be recalled if he breaks any directions about how he behaves etc. I haven't seen the evidence that the parole board looked at, but since they have turned him down loads of times before it must have been pretty persuasive.

Old Bloke. of course I am the same person! I'm afraid you won't get a prize for that. It is curious how a lot of these controversy seeking thread seem to end up with such similar themes, and people posting on them. We are all aware of the cliché 'an empty vessel makes the most sound"
Its for your own good. If you can't ration yourself a bit, the rest of us will drift off, and you will only have yourselves, Sword of Truth ,and your memories of the good times.

I must say I do object to the implication that murdering police officers is somehow more abhorrent than regular members of the public. He's done his time and is unlikely to be a threat to society so should be released.

Tipex, yes I agree.

@ Local resident thanks for pointing out faces has an 's' but I'd be much obliged if you could tell me where and when exactly I spelt it wrong.
In a previous life?
Perhaps you meant faeces after being overwhelmed by your need to spout it

@ Old Bloke You renamed the thread for some reason best known to yourself, something about 3 faced of something or other, when you clearly meant "faces"
So it was in this life I'm afraid. And it seems to have made you look a little foolish as well.
