Restorative Justice

It seems that the different shades of restorative justice that can be found in Northern Ireland offend some people's sense of professionalism. Here's Pete on Slugger:
"Harry Maguire is an ex-IRA prisoner who was convicted of murder. He now works for Community Restorative Justice, an organisation who try to stop punishment shootings. “A number of the shootings that have taken place over the last year have been done in a very haphazard manner,” he said. “They’re unprofessional with what they’re doing. There’s been a number of these punishment shootings where the intention has been to shoot someone in the knees. On one occasion a person was shot in the shoulder.”"

Brings the phrase 'doesn't know his arse from his elbow' to mind whilst boggling my mind.

A murder is working for Community Restorative Justice, how can he do that?
