Robin Oake was the former Chief Constable of the Isle of Man Constabulary.
Robin Oake’s son Stephen was murdered while on duty as a Manchester policeman. Just how did he manage to forgive.
When Robin Oake’s son, Special Branch officer Stephen, was killed by a terrorist while on duty, a press conference was called.
A journalist asked, “Mr Oake, what do you think about the man who killed your son?” and received a startling reply: “I don’t know the man or the circumstances but from my heart I forgive him.”
Another journalist said, ” What?!” and our response may well be the same.
