    Well I can't see this being mentioned anywhere else on the site but it looks like one of the children from the Jobstown protest is on the cusp of a six month suspended sentence, with sentencing deferred until next year.

    I'm particularly baffled and dismayed by the Judge's comments that the purpose of this protest was to humiliate women and dissuade them from entering politics. I'm not sure why this is relevant, given that the child admittedly just went along because he saw a crowd, and had been having behavioural problems before this incident. Can any protest directed towards a female politician result in people being demonised as violent misogynists now?

    Did Joan Burton have to go to court during this process? Or can these young children be sentenced to 6 months in prison without Joan Burton giving evidence, despite her being the victim of having her car surrounded?

    In the boy's case today at the Dublin Children's Court, Judge John O'Connor said the purpose of violence towards women is to humiliate them and erode their dignity and violence directed at women in politics “is to limit their effectiveness in the political process, to alienate them and to state they are not welcome in politics”.

    that kid runs teenline Ireland for teens who need an ear to help them out.
    the government of course cut funding from them and still use their number for people in need to contact.
