    I see Al Porter is interfering again :)

    He should know to just keep the head down.

    The judge noted he had no prior convictions and has not come to further Garda attention.

    What does that mean for his other misdemeanours?

    I thought this was a bit ridiculous that this saw the inside of a courtroom at all. At the very most, he should've been told to get lost (even using more unparliamentary language if necessary). Maybe even a caution.

    What a waste of everyone's time.

    Interesting wording, “has not come to further Garda attention”. It doesn’t say that he had never come to Garda attention before.

    Absolutely, guard probably recognised him and thought here's a high profile arrest, might help with the CV when i look to make sergeant

    What happened here happens a few times each weekend in every medium sized town

    ...followed by the usual verbatim report in the local paper "the defendant told the Garda to **** off,ye Free State bastard,etc,etc"

    "This is the only time I will give you a chance"

    The judge said to someone with no prior convictions just before Johno with 376 previous offences was brought before him.

    Amazing that people actually liked this guy, and pushed for him to be given massive amounts of airtime despite his terrible act.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,609 ✭✭✭✭Muahahaha


    Bit daft by the Gardai bringing that all the way to court, surely they could have just told him to leave the area instead of arresting him

    Just try to imagine what it was like listening to al porter at that time if the night. He was probably full up and giving it whole do you know who I am? He was probably warned loads of times to fūck off and didn't. Guard could have felt he had to arrest him because some clown would probably go to the papers and say porter was getting preferential treatment.

    Should have given him 6 months, would have been a good source of new material for his 'act'.

    You would be surprised at the amount of drunken ***** that can't mind their own business and won't
    **** off when told

    Out on the lash in town with shag all else to do by the sounds of it.

    Plenty of quips about " Is that your baton, Officer" and " aren't you going to take down my particulars "

    Ridiculous that so much Garda and Court time wasted on this ...be much better if gardai were empowered to issue a fixed notice with a fine of €250 for this kind of thing.

    The legal wallahs have a vested interest in having low level matters like this going all the way to Court.

    A very expensive way to give somebody a "Mind your own business" message .

    Its grand giving someone a ticket and they going away but if they continue to interfere into the back of the paddywagon is the only solution

    You know what Id say you are right there. Gardai get onlookers interfering with their work all the time, they tell the rubbernecker to move on or out of the area. Not following the order of a Garda is an arrestable offence but they are not so trigger happy that they dont give someone a chance, plus they've more important work to be doing than making arrests for disorderly conduct. Id say Porter was sauced up at 3am and warned a number of times to butt out but he didnt so they had no choice but to arrest him.

    Entirely agree....no criticism of the Gardai intended ...I would say the situation was exactly as you describe.

    The fixed notice penalty probably was not appropriate in this particular case but might be useful in other situations.
