The Dublin 4-mindset strikes again. 64 Travellers involved in a riot in Mullingar, Co.Westmeath, have had their sentences suspended by the Judge. Bizarrely, the judge cited risk of re-offending as part of his reasons:As a victim of anti-social behaviour by Traveller youths on a neighbouring estate in Co.Wexford, I would like to express my outrage at the suspension of these sentences. Once more, the word has gone out from left-liberal Ireland that if you are a member of a minority, allowances will be made for your unlawful behaviour in terms of leniency from the Irish 'justice' system. While the judge in question is not (as far as we know) from Dublin 4, this mentality is endemic among the Irish Establishment, and has to be seen in the context of the multicultural, left-liberal worldview, in which the world is divided into 'victims' and 'oppressors', with membership of a minority usually coinciding with the latter, and therefore justifying excuses and leniency for ones criminal behaviour. Ask yourselves: would an elected judge dare come out with such an absurd sentence? Write to your TD and to the Justice Minister to condemn this sentence, and to demand either the election of judges, or a referendum to force judges to impose mandatory sentences passed by the Dail in future.Originally Posted by RTE
The citation of the risk of future re-offending in the suspension of the sentencing constitutes an act of appeasement by the Irish justice system to those responsible for the terrorising of law-abiding Irish civilians by the criminal-fraternity - many of them part of the Travelling-community. Shame!
