    But, but, but, they're deflecting away from Mairia Cahill. What about all the TD's telling David Davin Power they wanted to make political gain on poor Mairia.

    I saw one moron throw a brick. There is a small element of scumbags who live in the general area who will use any excuse to hurl a brick at a Garda car. Why the riot squad was deployed after Joan left is beyond me. One can usually tell who is looking for a fight by the clothes they wear.
    Only one thing matters: live a good, happy life. Do your heart's bidding, even when it leads you on paths that timid souls would avoid. Even when life is a torment, don't let it harden you.

    But you can clearly see objects being thrown at the car in the Irish Times video---nothing to do with the Indo photo

    Can you explain how a brick that was headed straight for the rear windscreen then alters its flight path to float over and well clear of the garda car?

    There's a video posted earlier here of the same lad, in the same location throwing that brick. Laws of physics? Lol.

    Did you see how the women at the protest of Enda Kenny in Northwood were treated?....Many were literally thrown down on the road, middleaged and pensioners physically manhandled.

    The Garda car was moving.

    Perhaps you're amongst the defenders of the photoshop theory?
    The brick was thrown, however that does not rule out the possibility that the photo was photoshopped in some manner.
