“it’s a crime against the community..”

This BBC report notes Garda Superintendent Karl Heller’s description of the invesigation into the killing of Paul Quinn as a “well resourced, professional and very thorough investigation”. And, along with claiming to have more than 400 witness statements and 1200 lines of inquiry, he has appealed for more information from the public

“The people who were involved in this crime will have loved ones, whether they be sons, brothers, they have family members. They may have noticed some change in their loved ones behaviour.

“They do possess vital information and it’s information which will help us solve a crime which was not only a crime against a young man, it’s a crime against the community.”

Although, that assumes that the blindness is not endemic..
