After the IRA killed nine police officers in Newry in February 1985, King issued this statement: "I support the IRA, though I do not support everything they do. Politically, it would be safer for me to simply criticise the vices of the British security forces. But if I am to be true to my conscience, I have to say that I am a supporter of the IRA."
