    No. They weren't really. They caued a lot of harm along the way as well. Certainly in Crumlin, the only people barely touched were the main dealers; the guys on the ground got the baseball bats while the big family largely avoided direct action. Innocent people were caught up (myself included, one night).

    It would probably help their cause to have someone literate run their PR.
    I would suggest giving them books by Huxley, Tennisson and Golding to start their education.

    That's how they clock up the numbers.

    Then you have nonsense like this, where someone from Derry actually rented a house on this side of the border to grow drugs, then claimed that 80 odd plants were for medical use. The term overdose comes to mind.

    The whole thing is nuts. If they had committed a crime while on bail 20 years ago they would have went straight to Moutjoy. Today they appear to get a social worker, on the sick and are free to go on a crime spree.

    That's why concurrent sentencing should be abolished and that's why a proper system of minimum sentencing is required. Judges have way too much leeway. It's why defrauding the tax man a la garlic man gets 7 years and the rape of a 3 year year old gets 5.

    There's also the issue of the appeal court consistently lowering the original sentence.

    In fact, we're at the stage where every murderer who receives a life sentence, which is the only sentence that can be given, is appealed. Why is legal aid even granted in these appeals when there's no new evidence.

    Criminal legal solicitors earn a fortune, running into 100s of 1000s for most, with the lucky few earning millions. And its the same criminal solicitors in every district. It's a cabal.

    I agree it is a cabal in the legal profession.
