Policing policy defies all logic

I FIND it completely ironic that PSNI officers were instructed to facilitate dissident republicans, who in recent times murdered two police officers and a prison warder, parading through Belfast.

Contrast this with the inability of a Baggott-led PSNI failing to protect the members of three Ligoniel Orange lodges from returning home after the Twelfth celebrations on a section of the Queen's highway at Ardoyne.

To protect them coming past Ardoyne in the morning, and to refuse to protect them on the journey home, would take some explaining.
