I was going to say I sincerely hope the shooting dead of a mentally disabled man running away from them was not a British soldier “doing his job”, but then some of the behaviour of members of all sides in the troubles, including British armed forces would indicate otherwise. I have a great deal of sympathy for the stress endured by the ordinary soldier during the troubles, but the shooting dead of an unarmed, mentally disabled civilian who posed no immediate threat to them has been investigated and deemed worthy of court.
