Longford today.

What's this all about? I've seen the video that the woman took of the incident but it's not very clear. Not sure if I can post the video here so I'll erron the side of caution & not post it. Was the garda justified? He looks like he was alone or was it a negligent discharge? Hard to say either way.

Shur when has the truth ever mattered in these cases? Trial and conviction by social media as usual.

Man shot, dog killed, thread in AH. Probably an exhilarating day by Longford standards.

Pretty hard to tell whats going on but it looks like the dog might have gone for the cop, you can see that something is pulling on his tie and he shoots downwards at whatever is in front of him. You can't actually see the dog at any point.

I'm long over due a holiday from after hours



That said I don't think it breaks the rules.

I believe there was no dog involved in the video.
The dog had already been killed earlier in the incident before the recording.

Even with the limited view, you can get an idea of what went on. Garda involved in standoff, somebody or something gets a hold of Garda and pulls on his tie, Garda shoots dog to release.

If Garda felt he was in fear for his life, then it should be justified, but whatever happens he will be sandbagged for the rest of his career for taking the shot. In the meantime a load of people will have successful compo claims.

/edit, based on the above, I may be wrong then.

I could be wrong too. I just can't see or hear a dog at any point.

Perhaps the traveller while he strsngled the cop with one hand gripping the tie - he grabbed for the gun or ended up grabbing the trigger finger with his other hand. Firing the gun In an ironic twist of faith injuring himself.

That will be the official version. Either that or a warning shot that ricochet'd.

The garda says the line "I'll put a bullet in him" so they will have to be a bit more creative than that.

Anybody get a clear read of the lettering on the van? Just in case I ever want fencing done I want to be sure I don’t accidentally call them.
