Justice is needed over Quinn killing

Published 04/11/2015

I COULD not sit back and do nothing after reading the message from James Quinn in the Belfast Telegraph (News, November 2) on the inhumane death inflicted upon his brother, Paul.

I am sure I am not alone when I say that the law-abiding people, of every faith, were horrified then, and still are (understandably, perhaps, not to the same degree as Paul's family) and feeling a sense of fear that such people are directly, or indirectly, involved in governing our society.

I ask the question: is this the price we all have to pay for the unification of Ireland? Should that be the case (and at the moment it appears a likely scenario) then all I can say is, heaven help us.

So, I challenge those who vote for Sinn Fein to do the decent thing and withhold their vote until those who inflicted this horrendous death on Paul Quinn are not only brought before the courts, but convicted of this unforgivable crime.

Then - and only then - will a united Ireland not only be feasible, but worthy to live in.
