    Default Shadey Síochána

    Rolling thread for any Garda mischief that pops up


    DoJ is investigating claims that penalty points have been wiped from the licences of the great and the good. A whistleblower compiled a dossier of over 50,000 cases where point shave been dropped including at least two judges, prominent sportspersons, number of Gardai and an RTÉ presenter

    Indo says

    http://www.independent.ie/national-n...r-3309822.html

    It is unclear whether these people sought to have their points quashed or if a garda wrote them off on their own initiative.

    In at least nine cases highlighted in the dossier, a motorist who had their points quashed went on to be involved in a fatal road-traffic accident.
    and 'Garda sources'

    "What the material suggests is that this is a cultural issue within the force – something that has become custom and practice over the years, but is only now coming to light."
    No doubt measures will soon be taken to address an issue that could seriously undermine the force at time when they will be resisting budget cuts in the name of road safety.

    Not all words. 'Fact', for instance and 'proof', are still pristine because they were kept in a place of safety and not put at risk at all.

    NYPD is maybe in need of some good PR at the moment too.

    Or maybe it is just a cop with a heart of gold.

    Once the person is named, various media outlets are free to say what the TD said free from any risk, yes?

    A news reporter with the Sunday World has named the man arrested as a suspect for the shooting of Eamon Dunne. How can a tabloid hack obtain this sensitive information?
    Do the right thing.

    A judge was named, was it by Clare Daly ?

    But I haven't a clue who it is.

    That is what they do first, ring a tabloid, before an ambulance. Did you not keep up with Levinson. There was another guy that was considered a journalist, used to get the call first. I think he made the wrong career move.

    RTE say they have evidence of 90,000 deleted fixed charge offences

    I wonder if any were deleted as a result of a Constituent calling their TD and their TD calling the Sergeant
