Loyalist depravity reaches new low

Loyalist depravity reaches new low

A video mocking 15-year-old sectarian murder victim Michael McIlveen is circulating in Ballymena.

The video, being circulated by mobile phone, shows McIlveen, who was beaten to death in May, standing with friends and a subtitle below the image reads 'Fuck Mickey Bo'.

Other frames on the footage say, 'Murder Inquiry: Please contact somebody who gives a Fuck - Three kicks to the head and I was dead Hi Ho Hi Ho - Fuck Mickey Bo.

The film then shows the question Who Killed Mickey Bo, followed by images of UDA murals in the Ballymena area.

Sinn Féin MLA Philip McGugan said the video "goes against the boundaries of all decency".
