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.”

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?
