Text

START: I’ll tell you what I don’t want. I don’t want to watch the door while a Catholic boy gets hammered. I don’t want to wear that boy’s cross round my neck, show it off to people like a prize.

[... …]

END: I don’t want to get shot in the back of the head for something I probably never did, and spend ten years face-down in a bog in the middle of nowhere while my wife and child sit waiting, hoping, praying for me to come home. If that’s the road to justice you can f#&king bangle it.
