Youth charged over Police murder

BBC reporting that the 17-year-old youth has been charged with Constable Carroll’s murder.

Confirmed by other sources too.

BBC’s take:

The youth is also charged with having a firearm with intent to endanger life and membership of a proscribed organisation, the Continuity IRA.

He is to appear at Lisburn Magistrates Court on Tuesday morning.

The 17-year-old also faces a further charge of collecting information likely to be of use to terrorists.”

Comment:

Whilst it is good to see someone charged (he obviously remains innocent until proven guilty) this individual, up to his neck in charges is only 17 years-of-age! Is this the new, up and coming future generation of Northern Ireland? A generation that avoided all the violence and mayhem?
