How can the Garda arrest Disidents as far away as Cork, And the P.S.N.I. cant get a handle on the Disidents in the six counties. Well let me tell you what i think, they the P.S.N.I. are policing protests,parades,marches, etc, so they have not got the time to take these people off the streets. So maybe if the stupid people organising these events sat down and really give it some thought. They just might get a grip, call a halt to these events, and let the P.S.N.I. get on with some proper policing. These organisers such as Willie Frazer are always going on about terrorists this and terrorists that, it he and other fools that Is actully helping the terrorists, by taking the police out of the picture with silly protests. So the next time some eejit talks about why terrorists are not being arrested, we can point this out to them.having said that, they are probably to thick to understand this.
