Grabbing his tie is hardly being attacked. Sounded like yer man was trying to pull him off in fairness.

Casey fencing? You just have to check if it's a registered business or a fake company name on the van.

Foxy haired guy seemed to be trying to attack the van driver.

You're right, the travellers do not own the van.

The van had been left with them for repair and it's claimed the detective is helping him get his van back after a dispute over the repair bill.

Ok, dog is there for sure. The detective said "get it to let go of me" when his tie was being held.
I imagine the dog was produced to intimidate the detective and that's why the gun was drawn. The traveller seemed to lose control of the dog,
Fairly unprofessional by the detective, no garda should take on a situation like this alone but it was self defence so I imagine the discharge of the weapon will be deemed legitimate.

Interesting that they all seemed to be on first name terms with each other, including the Garda.

In a city it would be but It's not that unusual in smaller communities. I've seen a few disputes on the streets in a small town between Garda and Travellers both using first names. I've even been in a station while a traveller was shouting from one of the cells asking to be let out, using the first name of the garda

grab a man's tie when he's holding a gun you deserve a bullet in the foot.

Ongoing history in that area.

The area and parts of north Roscommon had a high vote for Casey in the election. There's a reason behind it. Join the dots.

Garda shoots dog in Longford




PSA: Turn your volume down.


No idea what it's all over but the man is obviously trying to attack the van driver and the Garda is trying to stop it. When he gets the van door closed you can hear the man say "watch out watch out" This is apparently because a German Sheppard has arrived. We then see the Garda being pulled down by his tie. I think the dog has a hold of it. He warns the man twice to get the dog off him and then shoots the dog. The bullet appear to have gone through the dog and hit the man or hit the ground and ricocheted into the man.

Prediction: Garda is retired, people involved take thousands in compensation off the state.

Find it strange that a Garda would not use a clip on tie, there wouldn't have been a problem, other than the loss of a tie, if he had.
