The gunmen can't be allowed to rule by fear
As the news of the latest gang murder was breaking, another victim was being buried yesterday.
Both men were victims whose lives were cut short by predatory, ruthless murderers who care nothing for the partners or children left in their wake. They have built empires by seeing life as cheap, taking it and snuffing it out once they can sniff profit.
And they seem to be able to strike at will. Though Dublin's north inner city had a heavy Garda presence on Tuesday night, the gunman was still able to strike, and Jason Molyneaux was shot dead in cold blood.
