BBC News - Pat Finucane's family anger after PM rules out inquiry Why can't these scumbags just leave it? Pat Finucane was an IRA lawyer who managed to set lots of murderers free, while his brother was a hardcore terrorist and OC Belfast Brigade. If you get involved in terrorism you run the risk of becoming a victim of it. It's a pretty poor show that the loyalists shot him in front of his kids but it's not as if he wasn't up to his armpits in death and destruction already. His wife said she was almost too angry to speak. Perhaps she needs to think of her husband's indirect victims.
