Thread: Rioting in Finglas

  1. #1

    Default Rioting in Finglas

    Yesterday, serious disturbances occured in Finglas with people being dragged from their cars, attacked, and cars being set alight. Up to 200 hundred people were said to be involved, some as young as 10. A fantastic way to celebrate our national day!

    I have a couple of friends that have family members living in that area that had to go back there and stay with their parents to make sure that they were safe and nothing happened to their houses or cars. Shocked that there were only 17 arrested. From what I was told there were alot more than 17 youths rioting in that area yesterday.

    I was out for dinner in a chinese restaurant off capel St last weekend, there was a 21st going on upstairs, we got talking to a few of the guys who were at the 21st while waiting for the bill, they were from Finglas, they kept going on about how the cops have no say in Finglas that the gangsters own the streets, and they were proud of it. When they heard my mate was from Crumlin they started harping on about Gilligan and the General like they were famous footballers or something.

    There's a real and deepening problem in the country, but especially in Dublin, regarding the behaviour of certain groups of teenagers and young people, and the problem is all but ignored by the media and the political classes, probably because it is not a politically correct one, but it is a major source of concern for anybody living in an urban area.

    These louts are scumbags, scobes, knackers, whatever, and they are making the lives of too many people a misery. The other day in the Irish Times I read about a Brazilian woman who got beaten up by teenagers while walking home in Dublin. She said that, while older people are very pleasant, she regularly receives abuse from groups of teenagers, and she also said that she knows other immgrants who have received the same treatment. The two Polish men killed recently are an even more serious example.

    We all know what these teenagers look and sound like. They aren't wearing chinos and Leinster tops. They can be seen loitering outside off licences and convenience stores, or acting threatingly on trains or the top floors of buses. Their parents dont seem to have any concern for them, so I dont know what the rest of us can do. But a major clampdown on anti-social behaviour in all its forms is necessary if we want to maintain Dublin and the rest of the country as a pleasant and welcoming place to live

    Indymedia are saying that a possible reason for the violence was due to the release of a criminal, and this was a "celebration" of sorts.

    It also examines how a vacumn once occupied by community leaders, the IRA and priests in providing leadership and authority figures, is now being filled bu local scumbags and criminals.
