McGuinness was a convicted terrorist, and a man deeply involved in vile crimes:
The Chief Constable talks about how he worked with McGuinness, things move on. How McGuinnes went through his various phases has to be viewed through the lens of a changing NI. He was born in a NI where UK citzens were denied Civil Rights taken for granted for granted in other parts of the UK. It would even be worth watching Belfast, a film by about Belfast in 1969/70, directed by Kenneth Branagh.
Police, Army, Loyalist Terrorists also murdered people, read back through this thread.
My cousin was murdered by an MI5 agent in the IRA. I came close to being killed by an IRA bomb, fortunately only the detonator went off.
We get nowhere if we only demonise one side in the past conflict. Sinn Féin members now serve as Ministers of he Crown and support the PSNI.
