student goes on driving rampage around Dublin city centre.

https://www.irishtimes.com/news/irel...ress-1.3472840

a 20 year old guy went on a rampage in his BMW yesterday in Dublin city centre. Multiple incidents in a short space of time. Details above.

He is part of “a Dublin based middle eastern family”.

Gardai believe the student had been suffering from stress/anxiety.

However “As a precaution, his background will be fully examined and any contacts he has had of late, in person and online, will also be reviewed.”

Scary incident. Ppl were taken to hospital(no serious injuries thankfully) and it Caused lots of disruption in the city centre yesterday evening.

Bad enough as it is, but it could’ve been a hell of a lot worse. Needs to be fully investigated.

There’s a crew of students from rich looking Arab families always chilling at Starbucks on Stephen’s Green. Some have nice cars. Given this car was driven out from Stephen’s Green garage, I would guess he’s a friend of those guys. Not to say there’s anything genuinely sinister about all of that.

Except for media gratification so that sensationalist and hysterical headlines can be created, the nationality if of no consequence - this guy suffered a mental breakdown, he went about it in a violent driving manner and it caused a crash.

Gardai were already on the case, but it could have been worse.

Mental illness affects many people - some will do things that will affect and hurt others, some will commit suicide. And they come from all sorts of backgrounds, and such background should not be used for sensationalist purposes.

Sort of reminds me of living in london in the 80's - any Irishman involved in anything and it was stated a "check was done for IRA connections" - effectively it was assumed you were involved with the IRA until it was proven otherwise.
