TEMPLE BAR -- All across the Friday papers in Ireland is the story of convictions quashed in the stomping to death of Brian Murphy outside a nightclub 4½ years ago. Careful readers will note another fact--those prosecuted were the ones who talked to police. Those who did not give statements were either not prosecuted nor convicted. At this stage, no one has been blamed for an alcohol-fueled rage attack that was observed by more than a dozen people. Justice works slowly but one principle is sacrosanct--do not incriminate yourself by speaking freely with investigators. Let your attorney release relevant details. Use any other approach in a homocide and you will be on the receiving end of the judicial process.
