    what ever some ubber liberals on this might think,i 100% agree. beating until they cry in front of their scum peers. lets see them think that they are the big boys then.

    This is probably in connection with the drowning there last night (R.I.P to that young man). Obviously his buddies at the scene must not have had the sense or indeed intellect to realise that the Coast Guard unit was there to help him. But far be it for me to be making excuses for low life.

    Not happy with just causing grief for the CG on scene, they proceeded to the Hospital for round 2! Assholes.

    I was going to rant but why bother, the one problem with getting sunshine in Ireland is that all the scum leave their estates to walk around drinking and showing off their scrawny red bodies in the case of young lads and their fat bodies when it comes to the young ladies, normally a pram as well.
    Scum the lot of them.

    Rant over.

    The family involved in this tragedy have a history of interfering with the emergency services. The victims uncle was killed in a crash while being persued by gardai. They then started throwing bricks at traffic passing their home, causing the GS to have to close the road outside it, for public safety.

    As I said in previous threads, we need to stop rewarding children for having children.

    Thugs. And as much as the front line services would love to retaliate, they will loose everything if they did...meanwhile if any of these c**ts got prosecuted, they'd be out in a few months, if even.

    Coastguard had its busiest weekend on record, and this is the thanks they get. If there are CG members here, thanks for watching over us and keep up the good work!

    Will be interesting to see how much trouble there will be in whatever pub they choose after the funeral.

    I told this story to some Aussies and the look of horror on their face was a story in itself.

    Sadly paramedics and the fire brigade have copped this for some time in Dublin.

    Not just Dublin.

    That'd be an American show. Although that's not to say there haven't been any Aussies on it....

    EDIT: ah okay :)

    Has anybody got that clip from the RTE series last year where the DFB were pelted with rocks and fireworks while being escorted by riot police?

    The first are attacks on the coppers which does happen.

    The second is a bloke who was clearly suffering some sort of psychotic episode.

    We are far from a land of milk and honey but attacks on the fire brigade by gangs of scumbags are rare. Hence some people were shocked.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,783 ✭✭✭maglite


    I haven't done a lot of reading about this but, if the CG were on scene it appears to be more of a recovery than rescue operation. Even assuming the CG in Crosshaven were on active standby for the weekend the response time to Ballincollig would be significant.

    Could there be an element of frustration with regards to a delayed response time?

    Do the Fire Service not have Swift Rescue capabilities? (didn’t see if they were on scene or not)

    I disagree on both points. Australia is no different to here in respect you have some folks who feel marginalised from main stream society.

    These type of incidents happen in ireland just as they do in australia. So please refrain from pointing this out as a dublin centric incident.

    Any country that has a marginalised group (this includes areas in europe) authority type services can and do wear the brunt of it.

    I think you are being completely over the top in your attitude to Zambias post. He merely stated some of his collegues in Australia couldn't believe that members of the public would attack the fire or emergency services. At no stage did he say it never happens in Australia. You seem to think he's making some sort of "our country is better than yours" point which I personally don't see.

    Speaking from a Dublin point of view none of the firefoghters who wok there are in the least bit surprised to be stoned or assaulted.......its become par for the course. However some Australian firefighters on exchange in Dublin couldn't believe it was happening. This is evidence enough for me that its not the problem over there that it is here.

    Do a quick google of "attacks on australian firefighters" and "attacks on irish/dublin firefighters" and there seems to be a huge difference also.

    To me it seems that the oul "marginalised" of society like lashing the fire servcies in Ireland much more than the Aussie "marginalised.

    I read it just as he intended it.

    This type of thing doesnt happen over here... blah blah blah. My colleagues were shocked when i showed it to them yada yada yada.


    Look the fact is Zambia was trying to say that it doesnt happen there which is why he referenced his colleagues. Im not reading anything into it, thats what was meant. As i already stated this type of thing happens all over the world by people who hate anyone in authority. Its happened in various areas in ireland, im unsure as to why dublin was specifcally brought up either.

    But its a global issue for marginalised people. That is a fact. So own up to that point. If anyone thinks this is just an irish issue they are clueless because it aint.

    End rant.
