Independent Councillor Davy Hyland has pointed the finger of blame for last night’s riot on the Camlough Road with the PSNI.

Speaking to Newry Times, Hyland stated, “I vehemently condemn the actions of the PSNI last night. I received several complaints from constituents in the Carnagat and Derrybeg areas who explained to me that the PSNI were antagonising young people by shouting insults, sticking their fingers up, flashing lights, beeping horns and revving engines, all in an attempt to draw youths into confrontation and the youths then responded by throwing various missiles.”

“I have also heard several reports of the PSNI driving their jeeps towards a group of youths and mounting the pavement in the process.”

Hyland added, “This comes as no surprise given the history of the actions of the PSNI in Newry, in particular in the areas in question who have been subjected to this type of intimidation over the past few decades. Time and time again the PSNI have indulged in this type of behaviour and for that they must be condemned.”

    Nothing new here – they’ve been doing this for decades! A new name doesn’t mean new tactics. Hell, if you speak in Irish to them, you’re lucky to escape unscathed! (You’d better be fast…!)
