    ... i dunno whats going on... was the naked running a protest against public sector pay ?

    Get a room folks.


  • Registered Users Posts: 504 ✭✭✭ purifol0






    Sorry where exactly is the actual average pay in that listed? All I see is a pay scale with no allowances or overtime from a unions website.



    Looks like you've been caught bull****ting Aunty Tim.

    As a tax payer and citizen I want better value for my tax money. Is that too much to ask? Any time I have needed the Gards they have proved absolutely useless. Whether it was handing out incorrect forms, signing them in the wrong places, giving incorreect info at the desk or even when my gaff was robbed and they sent a letter 6 months later saying they lost the fingerprints so the case was closed. Or when they sent me a summons to attend court 4 whole days before I was supposed to be in court - because the gard at the station never bothered to record my proof of motor insurace after I had been stopped with a new policy and no disc (but had the email).
    Or how about when they say theyll be there in 10 minutes and then dont turn up at all. Or when they threatened an illegal strike in 2016 and ended up getting a 50million euro raise. Or that time they all committed fraud with penalty points and nothing was done.

    Citizens deserve value for money and accountability. Not cop outs like "shure just join em if its so good."

    you have been very unfortunate to have had so many dealings with the gardai in your life.

    How many of them did it take to eventually catch him? and did they have to wait until he got tired? :p

    True


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,378 ✭✭✭✭ StringerBell


    Right, so the question is just did the gardai circulate the videos? I think?

    Or that we should publicly humiliate the mentally unwell.

    That's not even a question, you have made a declarative statement.

    Every other employer has cut wages in the last month

    Eh, citation needed there, gonna be good proving every single private sector employer in the country has cut wages.
    I'll wait... :rolleyes:

    The likes of Alcohol Action Ireland won't be happy until we all have ration cards. Maybe not even then.

    Feel kinda bad for the guy. For a country that prides itself on being open about mental health people are surely very quick to post videos of him on social media and laugh.

    Agree on one side, but by your logic, lets shut down boards.ie hell lets shut down the internet and the media

    Now it's your turn to provide your source!


    So the average public servant earns between 30-60k per year and you take issue with this? Thats piss poor pay.
    Meanwhile private sector employees earn far more than that.

    Get a life.

    Overpaid? Have you seen their starting salaries? You could easily get more in a nice relaxing dev job as a computer programmer and you wouldn't get hassled by the public, have to work antisocial shifts and generally end up with the sh!ttiest jobs dealing with the pond life every community contains.

    And I don't get the thing about overweight? Do people still think Gardaí can chase after a burglar and knock the living crap out of them? That may go on behind closed doors, but the days of being able to rough hand scumbags are gone, lest they get sued by some solicitor who will claim their client was traumatised and left unable to work for years after a rough handling. What do you really think the Guards can DO to someone if they caught them fleeing a scene etc? Little to nothing, the procedures and protocols are airtight and don't allow you to use even a smidgeon of force.

    I think people need to arm themselves with some facts regarding the day to day of our Gardaí.

    Retired at 50.

    Doing feck all, apart from a few good guards.

    Criminally overpaid, pun intended.

    How did this thread on a naked man running descend on a pedantic, hair spitting debate over public sector pay
    ?

    Because a poster had a lot of run ins with the gardai.
    Ya know that way, when your innocently living your life and the gardai just keep hassling you for no reason what's so ever.

    Been a couple of videos going around of something similar, guy in Cork out for a walk naked and another in Dublin stark naked standing on his chimney.

    I do and it's not as it would seem It really is none of your business.
    He was detained under the Mental Health Act and not arrested.
    This tread should be taken down

    Personally I couldn’t care less about it, I merely asked if you knew that it was definitely mental health.
