I don't believe that it is a hatred of police to be honest. I think a lot of it is lazy parenting, they have no respect for anyone or anything. Sure, they don't respect the dead how do you think they would respect the living. It's really sad.
Ithink you have hit the nail on the  head , I said this before 'if it was us in the day the police would have been sent for,then our parents we then got home with to a good smack and not aloud out after school, we did not get into trouble in a hurry'

Nostalgia-a sweet and beautiful thing.
Reality of life,however,is a very different thing.
Those who have left,we who have stayed-we live as we find ourselves.
Having said that-the early years are still within each and every one of us.
That is a truly wonderful thing.

You will see young American Mormons (LDS) in Belfast from time to time serving their missions. I've had long conversations with several of them. They are aged 18-22 and frequently spend two years abroad or at home on their missions. I have to admire their dedication but I would find their typical 3 hour long service, scripture study etc a bit much to absorb on a Sunday. Still, I'm having a good read of the Book of Mormon.

Belfast History and Memories / Re: 50s childhood
« Last post by derdrei on Today at 12:28:25 AM »

Ye know, folk memory is a strange thing. When I was growing up in the 50s a pal and I would play among the dams of a derelict linen bleaching factory near Whiteabbey (no cotton wool kids then!)
We would catch ‘spricks’ in our nets - sticklebacks and redbreasters - and put them into jamjars to die a lingering death back home.
Sometimes a redbreaster would have a little white growth on its head … to us that meant the tiddler was infected with polio (the disease was conquered in 1953). 
I once sliced my knee to the bone on a shard of glass climbing through a window of the factory. I can still see the surprisingly brilliant whiteness of the kneecap.
We packed the small wound with sphagnum moss, and just carried on. It healed and required no stitches. I have the scar to this day.
My friend remembered being told that is what they did in the First World War. Roy went on to become a doctor.
My grandfather, from Dhu Varren Crescent, Belfast, used to love that wee story. He had been a stretcher bearer with the 36th Ulster Division on the Somme (he was awarded the Belgian Croix de Guerre for rescuing soldiers under fire).
great memories you have there .
