    It would (or at least should) take more than a couple of eye witnesses recalling events from 50 years ago.

    A couple of witnesses for the defence saying "nah, that's not the way I remember it" would add reasonable doubt.

    I would have my doubts if on that jury.

    I see what you are saying, but cannot agree.

    Amnesty was granted for past crimes (iirc) of both Unionist and Nationalist Terrorist acts in the GFA.

    But you want an amnesty for a soldier of the crown murdering unarmed civil rights marchers in cold blood?

    I cannot see how he gets a pass on this, sorry.

    Agreed. It should be officers or even ministers not soldiers.

    we will see, I think there will be so much evidence that he will go down, but take your point.

    Unless the have forensics and HD Video I can't see a jury today doing it.

    Can they reliably use ballistics to link the bullets that killed unarmed civilians to his gun for example?

    If the weapon still exist can they even prove beyond all doubt he was using it.

    The water is so muddy after the original whitewashes I don't think we can do more than than say "this is what probably happened". I can't see a safe conviction.

    Edit. Sorry the mail will get him out.

    When he was released after being wrongly accused of murder they rioted in Belfast.

    The same will happen.

    I also think his case will be used by the defence.

    Just doing his job.

    I really really doubt that they can prove beyond doubt that this brave soldier did anything wrong.

    If he is convicted and used as a scapegoat there will be hell on.

    The British Public will not accept any convictions against "One of our Own" Certainly not after all the IRAs Murderers have been Pardoned so to speak.

    What this needs is a Truth and Reconciliation commission set up the same as what South Africa did at the end of apartheid.
    Where folk can speak about what they did without fear of prosecution

    sorry mate but quoting IRA men is not really any kind of way to back up your case here.

    This was cold blooded murder.
