Man hands himself in over McCartney killing

A man has handed himself into the PSNI in connection with the killing of Robert McCartney. Hmmm. Is this news? Not really. That is until someone is actually charged at the very least, and preferably convicted before a public court. Considering the bar was systematically forensically cleansed and the few witnesses who’ve made statements are still saying nothing, this may turn out to be another case of sound and fury signifying nothing. This is shaping up to be a long, long wait.

    the Guardian report is out of date. He appears to have already been questioned and released.. presumably after staring at the walls?

    The Irish Independent has a quote from Catherine McCartney on this – “We expected this to happen and we think it’s part of the strategy to trivialise the charges. We know what they (IRA) are at.”

    You could have stopped there, Mick.

    If this is true, then its certainly rubbing salt in the family’s wounds. Very Cruel.
