Onus is on the Republicans to solve this

Dissident republicans will view the murder of Constable Ronan Kerr as a major success and be encouraged by the extensive media coverage which followed.

Publicity is oxygen to these organisations and they gain legitimacy from it. Through publicity generated by their violence they dictate the political agenda. No-one has claimed responsibility for Ronan Kerr's murder; therefore denying the media the opportunity to challenge those who provide ‘political analysis' to these groups.

Northern Ireland witnessed a cowardly murder where terrorists believe there is no necessity to justify their actions.
