Motorists in unionist areas are harassed

Could anyone doubting the veracity of the First Minister's comments on the impartiality of the PSNI (or, rather, the lack of it when dealing with unionists) please explain how the residents of Saintfield, Ballygowan and Comber can experience road-stops, with the police checking MOT, tax and insurance, while illegal fuel stations are operating, seemingly with impunity, in several areas, including west Belfast?

The Good Friday Agreement was a nod to republicans on law-enforcement and the PSNI is encouraged to harass motorists in unionist areas to bolster detection figures.
