Today, 23.1.17, marks the 24th anniversary of the murder of 21 year old Police Constable Michael Ferguson outside the Richmond Shopping Centre in Londonderry, Northern Ireland.
The young policeman was murdered by a Provisional IRA gunman (that murderous organisation’s nickname was/is the Provos or PIRA.)
The gunman and those who planned the attack deserve the death penalty, or at the very least, life imprisonment, but that will never happen in “peace-process” (appeasement process more-like) Northern Ireland, a place in which evil terrorists (republican and loyalist) and their supporters and apologists are appeased and rewarded with high office and/or money in the form of “community grants” to keep them and their respective communities “sweet” and “on board” the “peace process” train.
Today we want to remember heroes like police Constable Michael Ferguson and acknowledge his and their sacrifice with the words of one of the stanzas from the poem by Robert Laurence Binyon.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
