Pond life becoming more prevalent. There’s a lot to be said for castration.

    Do you think there are enough Gardai around to have one of every street corner in Dublin. It’s fairly obvious that crime doesn’t happen when Gardai are there. The lowlifes wait until the Gardai move on before starting their carryon. The Gardai have a fairly lax attitude towards marijuana possession than Police in most countries so you & your stoner friends should count yourselves lucky.
    Maybe hold the “people” who did this responsible not the Gardai.

    The fact that you complained about Gardai busting people for marijuana was the first clue.

    Chopstix, I’m not saying you’re paranoid or anything, but everyone’s definitely out to get you.

    What about the four Gardai on bikes that ignored two men urinating on a homeless man in a doorway…then a Taxi driver went over and showed them and they shrugged and biked off into the night……

    @Chopstix
    You really are one pathetic individual. Your silly, predictable, blinkered nonsense is enough to put readers off visiting this news site, permanently. You support legalising cannabis, you don’t like Gardai – we get it already. Your comments give horse manure a bad name.

    All I’m asking for is that marijuana be legalised so it frees up Garda resources to tackle serious crime among other benefits
    What’s everyone problem with that ?

    If the honest decent pot smokers would just stop then the guards would have more time to deal with drink problems

    If the government stopped letting themselves be led by lobby groups for the big pharma company’s it would be legalised. Drink is just a socially accepted addictive legal high

    I’m only home two days… said the wrong thing in temple bar tonight having the craic. Ended up with stitches on my arm from some random nutcase. Thank god for one young fella who blocked the pint glass flung at my face. Madness!
