In the interests of justice, Shatter must resign

* Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan was the wrong man to resign this week; it should have been Justice Minister Alan Shatter.
Mr Callinan, as commissioner of An Garda Siochana, was a decent public servant who came down hard on dissident (self-described) republicans and organised criminals.
Mr Callinan, throughout the current controversy, stuck by a principle and was made a fall guy for Mr Shatter as a result.
