Hugh Orde in Court
A man left brain damaged by our "new improved and inclusive" police force is suing the Chief Constable for breach of duty. Mr Rouse was viciously beaten by a loyalist gang and he claims that the police were in a position to have preventd his injuries. Considering the fact that the attack took place in Portadown, the same town where RUC officers looked on as Robert Hamill was kicked to death, this case would seem to a sense of "deja-vu" about it. If Republicans are ever to made feel secure that we have a police service acceptable to all, the PSNI need to prove to the Nationalist/Republican community that these incidents are a thing of the past.
