Reid Issue Brushed Under Carpet

I have been notified by PSNI that they have decided to drop the investigation into the bigoted actions of Father Alec Reid. Once again an important justice matter has been brushed under the carpet to avoid issues which could be politically sensitive. In truth, it comes as no surprise that despite clearly insulting, abusing and slandering my character, not to mention that of the entire Unionist population, Police have decided not to proceed. One has to wonder did they ever seriously look into the matter at all.

This revelation comes in spite of a wealth of evidence including video footage and copies of abusive material sent to me in the wake of the incident. The fact of the matter is that I still am suffering abuse and attack as a result of the comments by Father Reid. The many telephone calls, letters and emails spouting hatred and Nazi jibes must surely be attribute to these incentive comments.

Obviously I, and my legal team, will be investigating alternative forms of gaining justice in this matter including potential civil action. We will also consider asking for an investigation by the Police Ombudsman into how the preliminary enquires were carried out, if at all.

If these comments had have been issued by myself towards Father Reid you could guarantee a police investigation and charges being brought. It just shows the hypocrisy.
