Today In History: The North King Street Massacre

Today In History: The North King Street Massacre
Near the end of the Easter Rising in 1916, British regulars broke down the doors of several houses in North King Street, Dublin, and shot and bayonetted to death 15 males whom they suspected of being rebels. A coroner's inquest ruled that all 15 of the dead were 'unarmed and unresisting' prisoners.  Later testimony was unable to demonstrate that ANY of the men were associated with or assisting the rebels.  The soldiers, in at least four cases, had robbed the bodies of cash and jewelry and buried them in the cellars and gardens of the houses where they were shot.

Prime Minister Asquith ordered all evidence suppressed.  The evidence of the murders did not come to light until 2001. No one was ever charged or prosecuted for the massacre.

They seem to be currently following the same dictum with respect to murders in the north during the troubles by British state forces, and loyalist paramilitaries controlled by British state forces (what little evidence that hasn't been suppressed suggests is that the whole edifice of loyalist paramilitary groups were tightly controlled by MI5 and the RUC).

The more things change, the more they remain the same.  The ONLY reason to suppress the evidence is to prevent things from being actionable in court.  That the loyalist paras are an arm of the British government has always been something of an open secret.

No wonder the strife! I am happy to not have been born in Ireland. Would be impossible to not fight back.

You know the difference between Bono and God?  God doesn't think he's Bono.
