29 June, 2009

Sinn Féin Councillor for the Rosemount area and DPP member, Maeve McLaughlin commenting following the shooting of a 26-year-old man in the Florence Street area of Rosemount late on Sunday night said :

"The people who carried out this attack in Rosemount need to explain to the community the rationale for their actions. It is very worrying that this shooting incident occurred when young children were present in the house. I have visited the home this morning and the family are very angry and upset.

"The people who carried out this attack must inform the community why it was carried out and who they represent.

"This latest attack is again done against the wishes of the vast majority of the people who want to see a proper policing service not vigilantism

"I would call on these groups to come into the 21st century and engage positively with the community in order to actively promote community safety partnerships and accountable policing so that we can bring an end to these incidents.
