For example Hillyard (1997: 106) describes the characteristics of the security apparatus which varied according to events on the ground and the vicissitudes of local, national and international politics. The mechanisms which the state used included: an alleged ‘shoot to kill’ policy, the use of live and baton rounds, strategies of stop and search and detention, ill-treatment in custody, prolonged detention, the use of informers, collusion with Loyalist paramilitaries, the intimidation of lawyers, strip searching and the transfer of prisoners to British jails.

No investigation took place about the killings, but a criminal trial followed which was marked by a perception amongst commentators that the presiding judge favoured the evidence of defendants. A civil suit brought by the parents of those who were killed and wounded was undermined by evidence presented by the plaintiffs’ lawyers. These factors at least partly explain why, at the original trial, the jury returned a verdict for the defendants, although this verdict was overturned on appeal because the original judge did not take seriously enough the attempted coercion of a juror.
