The following quote was emailed to the Pat Kenny Show yesterday by a garda.
The email gets right to the core of the most recent Garda/political scandal – The corrupt connection between the Gardai and the political system.
A comment made yesterday that the misbehaviour in the Gardai possibly being done by rogue elements within the force. Since all of this scandal is down to senior management, the altering of crime figures, the wiping of penalty points, the granting of bail, the threatening of whistleblowers I think it’s ironically hilarious that the rogue element within the job is actually its own management. Since all promotions above the rank of inspector are political maybe future governments will be a bit more careful as to who they promote.
