The judges are at fault too with ridiculous suspended sentences. Why should the Guards even bother?. The little scrotes will be out laughing in their faces after a few weeks because his mammy gave the judge a letter saying he's a good boy with a bright future. That must be so demoralizing for the arresting officers - detectives.

Something could also be said for the folk importing drugs and guns into the country and handing them out to youngfellas like it's Christmas.

If that were true we'd have better drivers on our roads.

I've no sympathy for anyone involved in that crap, they're asking for it.

It's only the family that I feel bad for

No now, he more than likely had to deal with the following:
  • substance abuse issues
  • difficult home life
  • learning difficulties (left school at 15)
  • comes from an disadvantaged background
  • struggling with the loss of (friend or family member)
  • having "a tough time of it" himself


just one of these is enough to turn any law abiding person into a psychotically violent drug dealer, think of his poor mammy who probably drives around in a 30-40k 191 car

I was responding to someone who was saying the fault is with the law enforcement in the country by saying that the people committing the crimes are also at fault.
