They were a gang of black youths. You probably aren't aware because our media are terrified of mentioning race but it has been publicised elsewhere.

Nice to see you jumping the gun though. Foxdene/Balgaddy is Lucan as it happens. Your own people.

Publicised where exactly?

I'm not from Lucan but I'm well aware of where foxdene and balgaddy are thanks, I'm from another area which the 40 serves and I'm well used to "our own" scruffs causing trouble over the last 30-40 years.

I heard a slightly different version of this story - not sure which is true

I heard that people at a bus stop were being terrorised by this gang and the bus came along and the driver let them on to try keep them safe but the gang also got onto the bus and threatened the other passengers

Either way its disgraceful

not in this case or are you talking about the gang that was roaming round a few years ago ? there have been issues with gangs of african youths around there, but not in this specific incident the thread is about. The Dublin gazette has detailed it before , I don't think they were ever doing enough to warrant a national paper covering it let along covering it up.

Dont get me wrong, I'm all 100% for it: One off thing? keep an eye on it. happens regularly? Then remove services at a sliding scale: 2 days first, up to a month.

I'm sure people will say: "Well, what about the innocent people who didn't do anything? What about them?" to which I say: "The drivers are innocent. What about them?"

Was just wondering about the legality of removing a service.
So what do you want them to do?
Operate a service that knowingly endangers passengers and the driver and damages the bus!

Theres a gang of 15 -.20 14 or 15 years old (most if not all from a school in the village ) hanging around the community centre and McDonalds in clondalkin. They're jumping on groups or individuals of quieter kids both in the community centre and at the mill shopping centre, right kn front of the doors at times where security have to jump in. All within 100 yards of the garda station.

No mention of their ethnicity in media reports or on Facebook either . People,e are all over the comments giving it "black ****ers" and saying how they should be sent home.

Only thing is every one of them is white.........

My question was.... wait for it..... about the legality of removing a service. I expressly stated that I was for removing a service. I was inquiring if they could legally remove said service as DB is a state body providing a service. Where did I say I wanted them to maintain a service? Where did I say I wantedthem to endanger driver, passengers or busses themselves?

Anyway...... Jeez, I never knew Lucan had gotten that bad. That's crazy
