    May I offer my first cousin Sally Mc Kevitt a speedy recovery whom has lived an unsettled way of life suffering from alcohol dependency syndrome and other related addictive issues. Its sad that some elements within her community have been left wanting in offering Christian compassion as opposed to judgemental stances and ‘get her out attitudes’. I am only to aware of knife culture having had a triple stabbing at my own home several years ago and SF not condemning the perpetrators or offering the victims a speedy recovery but an appeal in the Newry Democrat to the Staturory bodies to put me out of my own home suffice to state Im still in my own home living a settled way of life now. Just like the two stabbers at my home got off with a slap on the wrist and immediate bail this 31 year old whom stabbed Sally was already out on bail for stabbing a man in Erskine St Newry. Perhaps SF could question the courts and police about leniency towards offenders rather than picking on the vulnerable with mental and addictive issues would serve them better!

    Correction the 31 year old was not the same individual whom stabbed Sally that carried out a similar attack in Erskine St but nevertheless does not diminish the issue of knife crime and victims and apportion of blame. Synically and electorally it suited some to play to the wider gallery of a given community as opposed to addressing those whom have vulnerable psychological and addictive problems.
