Councillor’s backer filmed shooting and throwing bomb at police…

THE helicopter surveillance footage below (with commentary in this BBC clip) shows loyalist terrorist John Main throwing a pipe bomb at police and firing a handgun at officers during the UDA’s riot in September 2005 when the Whiterock Orange parade was re-routed. Main was jailed for a total of 17 years yesterday for attempting to murder police, while his neighbour Colin Harbinson was given 10 years for possessing firearms and ammunition with intent to endanger life. Four months before he tried to slaughter the cops, Main had nominated independent unionist councillor Frank McCoubrey to contest the local elections – as first revealed on Slugger. The rioting was just two years ago, the UDA has said it’s keeping its guns – and yet the DUP and Sinn Fein are involved in political collusion to nobble the Minister who has refused to fund a UDA-linked project.
