  • Commissar SFLUFAN changed the title to Dublin, Ireland - Far-right riots/violent clashes with police
50 minutes ago, Commissar SFLUFAN said:


I'd say that's a reasonable assumption though the Irish police haven't released any details.


Furthermore, a brown immigrant -- a delivery driver from Brazil -- acted quickly and slammed his helmet into the attacker, thereby preventing more carnage.


Brazilian = Christian (good)

Middle Eastern = not Christian (not good)

Drew Harris under pressure to make progress in inquiry into Dublin Riots which followed stabbing of schoolchildren




Senior gardaí have promised large-scale arrests in the coming weeks of ringleaders and participants responsible for the Dublin riots last week.


Commissioner Drew Harris and his senior officers are under pressure from the Government to make rapid progress in the investigation into the widespread rioting which followed the stabbing of three schoolchildren on Parnell Square on Thursday afternoon.


The 49-year-old suspect remains under armed guard in hospital. A five-year-old girl and a woman remain in a serious condition in hospital following the incident. The two other children that were injured have been released from hospital.


Between Thursday and Saturday, gardaí arrested 48 people, Minister for Justice Helen McEntee said on Saturday evening. However, only 34 of these directly related to the rioting, with the remainder being for regular public order offences on Friday and Saturday.





The Coalition expects to see prominent and visible policing in the city centre, although there are concerns over whether it can be maintained long term as it was over the weekend. The Irish Congress of Trade Unions, will hold an assembly at 1pm on Monday in solidarity with workers caught up in last week’s disturbances.


Investigators are also examining social media posts from various accounts to determine if they may have incited violence.


Far-right figures who helped organise gatherings in the city centre are also being examined. Several have since deleted social media posts potentially tying them to the riots. However, sources also warned prosecutions for incitement to violence are extremely rare due to the difficulty of improving intent.


Ms McEntee defended the speed of the Garda response on Sunday, saying it was one of the quickest ever mobilisations of large numbers of the public order unit and other gardaí, with 220 members in full public order gear.
