He Was Nailed to a Fence?!


(GoRealNewsNow.com) – As can be imagined, the assault on a man found nailed to a fence in a Bushmills County Antrim, Northern Ireland, car park has sparked widespread condemnation due to the violence of the event.

The victim, in his 20s, was discovered with nails in both hands and nose injuries in the Dundarave Park area, and he was hospitalized for treatment afterward.

Two vans, one belonging to the injured man, were found on fire nearby, which prompted a response from Northern Ireland’s fire and rescue service.

Likewise, there was graffiti on public toilet walls nearby that was linked to the violent attack and arson, while around 20 campervan and mobile home visitors were reportedly in the area at the time of the assault.

Some locals, speaking anonymously, speculated that loyalist paramilitaries were behind the incident.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) described the attack as “brutal” and “sinister,” which left the victim with life-changing but not life-threatening injuries.

Assistant Chief Constable Bobby Singleton emphasized, “This criminal and violent behavior cannot be tolerated in a peaceful community and has to be condemned.”

Moreover, local politicians expressed shock at the incident.

Alliance Party Assembly Member (MLA) Sian Mulholland stressed that vigilantism will not exist in Northern Ireland in 2024. “If people do have concerns, the police and the justice system are the routes we have to follow. Otherwise, we are in the wild west,” she said.

A local Traditional Unionist Voice MLA, Jim Allister, emphasized that “mob rule” has no place in society and advocated for lawful authorities to address lawbreaking.

The last similar incident was reported over 20 years ago when a 23-year-old man from west Belfast was found “crucified” and with broken legs in a Loyalist area

Harry McCartan, the victim, had to undergo surgery to remove wooden splinters that remained in his hands after the six nails were removed.
