    Crime is uppermost in most people’s mind this week with the shooting dead last Friday night of Garda Donohue and the closure today of 95 Garda stations around the country.

    How vulnerable are we now to crime. Can crime be overcome by addressing the issue of inequality? Tonight Vinny and his panel look at this issue. It should be a good interesting discussion, without politicians sticking their big noses in …

    The show will pay special attention to today’s Irish Times article by Vincent:

    Inequality feeds culture of criminality
    VINCENT BROWNE
    They set up a Facebook page for Philly O’Toole after he disappeared on Monday, January 7th. He had left his home in Arklow at about 5pm that day and, according to a neighbour who lived beside his family in Fassaroe, a working class housing estate in Bray, he probably had come back to Fassaroe to visit his partner and seven-month-old son.

    He was taking a chance in doing so, for he knew his life was in danger from a criminal gang …

    Good to see the excuses getting in early.
    Things were pretty bad when we were the land of plenty.
    Its only a chat, we ain't the world council.

    How does that explain our lovely white collar class of fraudsters? Something Vinny B casually ignored from his IT column, today.

    Well, the Irish legal profession makes sure that it the viability of the crime sector of the economy, is not something to be left to chance.....
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Linking inequality with crime stood up many years ago. Sure there is still a link but crime today requires a lot of the grey matter to be highly active. Most criminals in days past had little or no primary education dont mind secondary. Junior and Leaving may not be the height of education but they are enough to sharpen a calculating mind. Even without formal education a sharl by 20's onwards knows enough about the world to decide crime is the way he/she wants to make money. Most of all, few people who suffer inequality turn to crime and Browne should concentrate his efforts on the vast majority
    People demonise Fianna Fail and they are entitled to do so but same people are not capable of answering a few awkward questions themselves.

    Want to talk crime?

    How about Larry Goodman importing frozen scraps from Poland while telling his customers that ingredients for their burgers were sourced exclusively from approved suppliers in the UK and Ireland?
