Directed by award winning film maker, Peter Kosminsky, this drama-documentary goes some way to lifting the lid, specifically on the murders of 6 unarmed Republican suspects & Catholics in North Armagh within the period of a month between November-December 1982 by an RUC Special Branch-tasked HMSU death-squad, known as E4a. ‘Shoot to Kill’ also examines how the inquiry by Manchester DCC John Stalker into the series of state-sanctioned executions was constantly obstructed and finally sabotaged by the the RUC’s Chief Constable, RUC Special Branch and other British intelligence agencies who wielded considerable influence within the Thatcher Government’s Cabinet to smear John Stalker, removing him from the inquiry on spurious grounds. The Inquiry has never been published, lending credence to Stalker’s comment that they were a force out of control who acted akin to South American Right-wing death-squads who murdered suspected political opponents and civilians with impunity.
