    Default Depressing insight into contemporary Ireland

    The report of the trial of the Joels for their neglect of their mother makes sorry reading.

    Hard to see what can be done with people like this.

    Two simpletons neglect their mother and this to you is a depressing insight into contemporary Ireland? Hysteria much?

    Whilst they are not the full schilling there has to be a deterrent emphasis to this case.

    It proves for me that relatives should never have to care for their own elderly relatives. They simply are not well enough equipped to do so.
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    240 hours community service!

    Fair enough, its seems to have been a squalid life, but people are still responsible for their actions. All of those concerned made choices that landed them where they were.

    It is not an "insight" at all. It is two slack jawed yokels who were not mentally equipped to look after an aged relative. That is all. I fail to see what can be achieved by locking them up at great expense to the state.

    Our economy simply does not allow for it any more. The vast majority of families need both partners out working to produce enough income to survive and have some kind of a life. There are virtually no government incentives to care for an elderly and/or sick relative and women have just as much right to have a career with progression as men. It is 2012, not 1912.
