How the government turned its back on Gangland

The Broom kicks off an excellent blog with a link to an equally excellent article in the Tribune by Richard Delevan. I spent fifteen minutes yesterday and five this evening trying to find it. And failed, miserably. It basically takes journalists to bits over their outrage that a ‘gangland style’ could have ‘spilled out of gangland’ and into nice middle class Clontarf. The implication is that its okay when it happens in working class Crumlin. Broom goes on to track the determination of some of victims of summary paramilitary violence not to give up the fight for justice.
