Vice-Chairman of Policing Board attacked

The vice-chairman of the Policing Board, Denis Bradley, was attacked last night, while watching a football match in a bar in Derry with his son, by a masked man wielding what has been described as a cut-down baseball bat. The reality, and ongoing problem, is that certain groups continue to believe they can commit such attacks with impunity. Btw, the only arrest, so far, is for disorderly behaviour in relation to the attacks on police investigating the assault.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
