Rapist loses genitals after being shot seven times


Image: Paul Faith/PA Wire
A RAPIST who was shot seven times in the legs and genitals in a paramilitary attack in Belfast last month has lost his genitals, after surgeons were unable to save them.
Darren Murdoch was wounded after masked men broke into a house he was staying in, in Ardoyne on the northside of the city, on November 15 and fired at his groin, abdomen and legs, striking him seven times.
The Irish News reports that though surgeons were able to save his legs, which were severely damaged, they were unable to salvage his penis and testicles. Murdoch will require permanent medical treatment for the rest of his life as a result.
Óglaigh na hÉireann, a splinter group from the continuity IRA, has claimed responsibility for the attack, with a spokesman saying the wounds were “punishment befitting of the crime”.
Local MLA Alban Maginness of the SDLP condemned the shooting as “animalistic”, while Community Restorative Justice said it was “barbaric” but ultimately “ineffective”.
Murdoch was jailed for ten years in 2002 after confessing to raping a 30-year-old woman in her home on St Stephen’s Day, 2001. He served eight years and remains on the sex offenders’ register for life.

Weird story. The guy did his time. I'm thinking one of the attackers had a personal interest, and may have been waiting-- because he got more time than the average American rapist does. The raped women is faceless here.

I would just like to point something out these 2 people lived beside 3 schools and were know to be deviants and also the one who got shoot 7 times was harrasing the family of the girl he viciously raped as he was a bully boy. The other raped his own aunt.
