The Frederick St protest and reaction

Surprised there wasnt a thread. Maybe there's just no shock factor any more to what happens.

Anyways..without debating who is right or wrong on this, id like to hear why Gardai wore Balacalavas. Seems a little overdone.

I am of course coming in late to all this, fill me in if i'm missing obvious detail.

From the little I know about it, gardai may have been wearing balaclavas in an overdone way when they were protesting about Frederick St and there was a reaction...So I too seem to be missing any details really!

It was the public order unit. I’m sure they were aware there would be a lot of press there and posts on social media and rightly or wrongly they didn’t want their faces posted all over the place - or they wanted to come across as intimidating?

People ignoring court order shocked by their removal by Gardai and security, shocker.

Was it just because they wore balaclavas in this weather that they have issue with?

Because their faces would be plastered all over Facebook by morons claiming this and that.

Don’t blame them, they have families to protect too.

I guess that the same was thought about the tank man in China. Rosa Parks on that bus. Numerous other examples.

Raising awareness of failed policies does achieve these things bit by bit.

And by occupying someone’s property illegal is the right way to go about it?

I’ve seen numerous posters on my social media feed going nuts about the actions of Gardaí/UVF thugs/Garda Commissioner. Their histrionics is embarrassing.

If this is indicative of the new Commissioners approach, I’m looking forward to the next few months. They were straight in there. However, tackling a few crusties is way down the list of priorities. They need to smash fcuk out of any junkie/scumbag/burglar/pikey type who steps out of line.
Long overdue.
