Punishment shootings undermine community efforts - McCann‏

5 March, 2012 - by Jennifer McCann


Sinn Féin MLA for West Belfast, Jennifer McCann has stated that those behind a so called punishment shooting in Twinbrook last night have no support in the local community.

Speaking today Ms McCann said:

“The type of action carried out last night achieves nothing. The community recognise this, local representatives recognise this and those groups working hard within our communities recognise it. It is high time that those behind these shooting recognise it.

“The community has worked for years to provide alternatives to so called punishment shootings and this has payed dividends. Those behind this attack must know this and are only trying to flex their muscles. The reality of their actions are that they are undermining this community. “Let be very clear about it, there is no support whatsoever for this type of reckless actions and those behind them need to stop.”
