Live by the sword, die by the sword
Sir, Concerning the letter in The Kerryman of October 26 by Mr Mccarthy regarding barbarity on TV [when Col Gadaffi's death was broadcast], I think it would be fair to assume that Gaddafi ordered the same fate on many of his own people. 'As a man lives so shall he die'.
Now the picture on Sky News that was chilling to the bone, was of the little girl, somewhere in China, who was knocked down by a van that failed to stop. Twenty one people passed her by as she lay in a pool of blood and not one stopped to help. Then another van drove over her. Eventually an old lady pulled her off the street, but she died a week later. I think it puts Gaddafi's death in perspective. Sincerely, Thomas Galvin, Doonties, Lispole.
