The Gardai have exceptional powers , should they get exceptional sentences for breaking the law?
What say you?
Lucky no one killed this time.... Our unprofessional Keystone cops are really going downhill

Garda was drunk in patrol car

A GARDA has been banned from driving after he was caught drunk and asleep at the wheel of a patrol car in the middle of a main road, blocking traffic.
Padraig Boyce (36) was put off the road for two years and fined €650 by a judge who found him guilty of being drunk in charge of a car.
Taxi driver Declan O'Donoghue said in evidence he was on his way to a job at 3am on May 16 last year when he saw Boyce's car stopped in the middle of St John's Road, Dublin 8 facing the Lucan direction.
