Gerry Adams arrested in connection with the murder of Jean McConville
Pass the popcorn
Be interesting to see what follows..
I'm crossing my fingers.
Yet another lump swept under the carpet ......
Why is her being an informer (or not) relevant at all?
Surely kidnapping a mother in front her children and then killing her can't be right under any circumstances, regardless of what she may or may not have done?
Personally I find the enquiry into whether she was an informer or not infuriating. And what if she was....? And how does the fact that she was not an informer changes anything?
Its probably relevant in that it may establish motivation, or lead to others becoming suspects.
I doubt that there will be any more action in this matter than there was in operation Yewtree. Lots of noise, but no real result is my prediction.
Innocent until proven guilty of course. But after chatting to a NI colleague today he was concerned that if he was found guilty and imprisoned it would put back the peace process and terrorism would escalate again. However any new evidence has to be acted on.
Too long ago.
No forensic evidence to link Adams to her death.
The only witnesses to the actual killing being best described as "unreliable".
A lack of political will to prosecute someone who was instrumental in helping broker the Good Friday Agreement.
He'll be fine.
BBC News - Max Clifford case 'proves Operation Yewtree no witch-hunt'
The McConville children know who...but daren't say even after all this time. It is interesting that they welcome the arrests though.
He can't possibly be guilty of anything; remember, we don't negotiate with terrorists....
I don't think that there was any suggestion that no one has ever abused women or children in the 70' and 80'... just that Operation Yawtree yielded a lot of a high profile arests, some charges, and very very few convictions.
It's taken a long time and a lot of balls to finally arrest a man who has admitted to being part of a terrorist organisation and has been involved in many atrocities. Guilty or not, peace process or not..... hang the ******!!!
Fixed that for you. He has always denied membership of any illegal organisation.
I couldn’t agree more, the very words I was thinking after reading this article today on the BBC News web site.

The fact remains, was it a wise decision for him (son) to disclose that he knows who the killers were. I think I would be feeling pretty uncomfortable at this moment in time having just made that statement to the world.
It's not something they haven't said before.
No doubt the person arrested after presenting himself to Antrim Police Station and currently helping the PSNI with their enquiries has a very fine lawyer team. I believe this is something Mrs McConville was not allowed when she was contacted by her local law enforcement society and helped them with their enquiries.

Very very brave lady.
