1. In other words, they were as evil as portrayed
And this is just one section where the light has been turned on...
<deep West-of-Ireland sigh>

The police force has been reformatted, but continued suspicion is understandable, following so many years of lies and cover-ups. (Meet the new boss....) It will be very hard to move forward, but hope remains that all sides will stop treating this as a $%#@ing game and realize it's a matter of life and death.

3. Informer saved my life says campaigning dad
From The Belfast Telegraph:

An informer saved the life of campaigning father Raymond McCord as he worked to expose the agents who killed his son.

As a debate about the police use of informants continued today, Mr McCord revealed "the irony" of the agent who prevented UVF attempts to silence him - although he says he is certain the informer never crossed the line into murder like Mark Haddock.

Mr McCord spent almost 10 years digging for information about the 1997 murder of his eldest son, Raymond Jnr.

On Monday, a report by Police Ombudsman Nuala O'Loan said a UVF informer - already identified as Mark Haddock - and other agents were involved in the murder of Raymond McCord Jnr and at least nine other killings.
