Breaking news, boy shot, real ira, dissident republicans, RAAD criminals, derry city criminals
During the 40 years of terror by loyalist and ‘republican’ criminals knee-capping, beatings, mutilation and murder of children was the means by which Politico-Peadophiles were able to silence their victims, the most notorious example, was that of serial child rapists GERRY ADAMS Snr and those who protected this prolific child rapist. In 2012 rapists and peadophiles masquerading as ‘republicans’ continue to rape and mutilate children at will. Martin McGuinness MP has described these ‘republican dissidents’ as “criminals and traitors”.
A 16 year old boy was shot by these scum, his mother Donna Smith has said there is a need for community support for policing, as their role is being taken over by dissidents in the area.
"There's other people that have had to take their children to be shot. This isn't the way it should be," she said.
"You should be able to go to the police about these things and I know people are scared."
Many of RAAD's members are believed to have allied themselves to another dissident grouping calling itself the new IRA.
The group admitted responsibility for the murder of Co Tyrone prison officer David Black earlier this month.
They said the killing was linked to conditions at Maghaberry Prison where republican prisoners are refusing to wash in an attempt to secure political status.
The 16-year-old was shot twice in the leg by masked men who pushed their way into the Ballymurphy property shortly after 9.30am on Thursday.
Two members of the gang held his mother at gunpoint as they searched through rooms in the house in the Whitecliff Parade area, looking for her son.
"They held her and she started to scream," explained the victim's aunt, Bernadette O'Rawe. "She was shouting and screaming at them in a panic."
A third bullet fired at the teenager missed, and as the gang made their way out of his home they fired once more through the kitchen window.
It is understood Ryan, who is in stable condition in hospital, is the son of Gerard Devlin, the west Belfast man who was stabbed to death in 2006 during a neighbourhood feud.
"It was a savage attack on the child... I wonder where we are and why we are going. It was a shocking incident."
Mrs O'Rawe condemned those who attacked her nephew.
"Who are these people to take the law into their own hands for whatever reason? Whatever reason they think they've in their heads they don't have a right to shoot Ryan or any children," she said.
Over the last three years so-called punishment shootings in the Derry area in particular have become increasingly common.
In some cases, parents have had to take their children to be shot in the city.
The group behind most of these attacks was Republican Action Against Drugs, known as RAAD, who say they are targeting drug dealing in the community.
But a new book focusing on this new wave of terrorism says the shootings have not stemmed any drugs problem.
Author John Lindsay explained: "Very few perpetrators (are) brought to justice as a result of so-called punishment attacks, and also (they were) something that seemed to increase in occurrence when there were apparently ceasefires in place- so when other forms of violence weren't happening, more people were getting shot at, on account of allegations of drug dealing."
He found that within both republican and loyalist communities there is a degree of support for such shootings.
The author said in writing the book, 'No Dope Here?' he has tried to understand why the attacks were happening.
"People are afraid of crime, afraid of drugs so there was a sort of populist agenda, it may also be a way of exerting control on communities," he said.
It's not a normal society.

24-year-old Andrew Allen from Derry became a victim of the group, he was shot dead in Donegal in February this year after he was exiled from the city.
