Policing drama

Sinn Fein have condemned recent attacks on police recruits. Whilst not encouraging anyone to join the PSNI, Gerry Kelly told the Newlsletter that: “I am making it directly clear now that there should be no intimidation or threats against new recruits.”

He went on:

“People should not participate in a police force which falls short of the acceptable civic policing service which we all desire.”

And then:

“Joining or not joining the PSNI is a matter for the individual concerned.”

Update: Ahern says no re-negotiation on the Agreement.
