Gerard “Jock” Davison, 47, former IRA commander.  10 years ago he was involved in the stabbing death of a guy named Robert McCartney following a bar fight – he was said to have ordered his fellow IRA members to kill the guy, but they were (allegedly) able to intimidate all the witnesses in the bar.  The murder gained international attention, and the resulting political pressure may have helped bring about the disarmament of the IRA.  Anyways, he was gunned down the other day.

Fucks given: 0.
