There are also allegations that they shot first and asked questions sometime never.
Two men who claim to have been part of the MRF were interviewed by Panorama. Both men wore disguises. Neither men claimed direct responsibility for killing any individual. Both, however, believed that the MRF was right to kill suspected IRA terrorists, rather than apprehend them.
They believed their actions had saved lives, but tell that to the loved ones of innocent civilians who were shot. You also have to wonder if such behaviour alienated communities further and extended the life of the "Troubles".
Murders were often assumed part of the sectarian violence, fuelling more killing. As the MRF patrolled city areas, in unmarked cars, they singled out suspected terrorists.
In doing so many innocent civilians were shot. Some died but some lived to tell the tale.
Listening to the words of those shot and injured and the daughter of one man killed in error was shocking. More than 40 years later these people carry the mental and physical scars.
Yet no person has ever been called to account.
The MRF was short-lived and disbanded as the MoD, Ministry of Defence, attempted to sweep its existence under the carpet.
A handful of the survivors shot by this force were interviewed by Panorama. Men shot and injured as they said goodnight to friends at the corner of a street.
All the injured were tested by police, when they attended the hospital for treatment back in the 70's, but none of those interviewed tested positive for weapons handling.
Yet those members of the MRF interviewed by Panorama were not fazed by that news.
They claimed that the force shot only when weapons were used by the terrorists first or were seen in their possession by the MRF.
They disregarded police evidence as flawed and not to be trusted in the 70's. Even so they accepted that some unarmed civilians were shot and killed.
Will the British government allow justice to be served and call these killers to account?
Will justice ever be served?
