Zero tolerance towards victims

The Victims Commissioner has been on record as stating that she does not believe that terrorists are victims. Miss Fitz on Sunday described this as narrow.

Alban Maginness has called for zero tolerance towards Loyalist paramilitaries. I found this odd as according to this SDLP policy document all Paramilitaries are doing by engaging in murder and criminality is making victims of themselves, and according to this policy,

The needs of all victims – of paramilitary organizations and the state – must be respected equally.

Lock up the victims I say.
