A report in today's Sunday Independent informs us that a priest was again the victim of robbers who broke into the parochial house for the second time within a fortnight and an elderly lady in the same village was targeted, losing a large amount of money two weeks ago. With criminal scum such as these targeting the vulnerable, when will our Minister for Justice actually do something about this endemic crimewave sweeping the country wherein the aged and vulnerable are deliberately sought out and victimised?

If Minister Shatter prefers to spend his time wandering off to Israel and is not interested in dealing with what is happening in his own country under his watch, then the Taoiseach must replace him pronto. No if or buts or lameduck excuses or waffle. This has to be tackled once and for all. Now, Minister, do the job you were elected to do and for which you are being paid a handsome salary or else resign.
