In the Sherlock Holmes story, the Adventure of Silver Blaze, the following exchange takes place.
Gregory [Scotland Yard detective]: “is there any other point to which you wish to draw my attention?”
Holmes: “to the curious incident of the dog in the night”
Gregory: ” the dog did nothing in the night.” [Gregory was trained at Garnerville]
Holmes: “That was the curious incident”
Patrick Fitzpatrick had his house raided and he was found in possession of a Glock pistol. It would appear that the firearm had no connection to either shooting. Is this the best the state can do?
Obviously an informer was involved in the arrest of Fitzpatrick, or perhaps they ‘were following the evidence’?
Was he a sop?
If the state, Special Branch and MI5 do not know who killed Davison and McGuigan, we are living in a dangerous world.
They penetrated the IRA thirty years ago.
The curious incident is the lack of evidence against any significant player.
The present play acting at Knock is disgraceful.
