Even after they were done for murder, Ian Thain and Lee Clegg were admitted back into the British Army after serving what must have been the shortest sentences in history for the crime. Irish victims of these scum have always been treated with contempt. Unfortunately, the McAnespie family will never get the justice they deserve, like the countless other victims of state murderers

So what has changed in the evidence in 30 years?

It'll be like Bloody Sunday. Oops, sorry about that, but still no convictions.

New evidence from the PSNI that it couldn't have been an accidental shooting. Still can't understand how it isn't a murder charge but the family seem ok with the decision.

And it took them 30 years to come to that conclusion. Still, a token sentence is all that will happen.

Been proven that it takes 9lbs of pressure to depress the trigger on the particular gun used yet he claimed it was an accident. Not possible.

I think one theory is that shots were fired around McAnespie in an attempt to make him “dance” although I’ve also heard somewhere that one shot was fired directly into his back and the part of his ribcage was removed at autopsy and never returned which may have interfered with providing evidence of him being deliberately murdered. Either way the soldier responsible obviously operated in a culture where it was acceptable to intimidate civilians and where if incidents like this occurred they were safe in the knowledge they’d get away with it. Scant consolation for his family but hopefully solider is found guilty and they get some form closure 30 years later

I heard, but can't verify the source, that the new evidence may include ballistics analysis that shows the fatal bullet wasn't a ricochet, as had been claimed, but a direct shot. Though if that's the case, I don't understand how the charge becomes manslaughter and not murder.

A couple if Aidans brothers were interviewed by yer woman Miriam on RTE radio a few weeks back. Worth a listen. Fairly puts this accidental shite to bed.

This investigation is complex alright while the one in the cold blooded murder of civilians was not so complex

Sounds like they stole/obtained documents from the Ombudsmans office to assist with the documentary?

I'm presuming they maybe had a source in there who was able to get them or something but details seem very sketchy.

Will be a pretty big free press story it's not the last we'll hear of it!!!

Clare Rogan, who lost her husband in the attack said the families were "shocked and appalled" at the news of the arrests.

She added: "These actions are the latest attempt to deter the work of families and journalists who seek to shine the light on the dark levels of collusion at the heart of the British state."
