The comments made by Louise Haigh, the Shadow Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, on 6 April 2021.
This reprehensible violence is unjustified and unjustifiable. It serves no purpose and is risking the lives of frontline workers.
As a former Special Constable, it is sickening to see frontline officers subject to violent attacks simply for doing their job.
The concerns and frustrations communities are feeling must be addressed through dialogue and political leadership alone.
A clear message must be sent that there is simply no excuse for violence.
