Adams lost in dark age

The remarks by Gerry Adams following the Smithwick Report would make all rightthinking people sick to the core.

In trying to justify the shooting dead of two unarmed police officers he exhibited his warped thoughts and those of his fellow travellers who also backed his remarks.

I am not surprised by such remarks from Adams and I can see the day coming when he will also try to justify the murder of members of An Garda Síochána and the Irish Army. Adams is a man lost in the dark ages, who wants to consign every other citizen to his way of thinking, and appears to demand that the majority of our country must agree.
