“Minister For Justice Needs to Actually Focus of Fighting Crime” – Mairead Tóibín
Dublin Aontú Representative Mairead Tóibín has reacted to a video of a driver ramming a Garda car in Dublin yesterday evening.
Speaking today, Mairead Tóibín said “I was absolutely appalled to see a driver ramming a Garda car yesterday evning. Over the last few months, we’ve seen the Gardaí completely crippled as an effective force. As a result, we’ve seen a spiralling crime and anti-social behaviour problem.”
Mairead Tóibín continued “Recently, we’ve seen a horrific burst in violent anti-social behaviour across the country. From the two men who were mutilated in Sligo in April to the three siblings murdered in Tallaght, the government has allowed this problem to deteriorate to horrific levels.”
“Gardaí are not being supported. They are understaffed and not being given the resources they need to deal with this spiralling crisis. I’m constantly hearing stories about families and the elderly who are terrified by this crisis. The Minister for Justice must take steps to actually tackle the crime epidemic in Dublin. “ Concluded Mairead Tóibín
