Just read about how armed gardaí incorrectly burst into the homes of hard working non criminal families. I realise that Gardai have a tough job, but surely the Gardai in charge/sanctioned this raid, should face serious consequences. e.g. they should be fired if it turns out they made the wrong call. This case is going to cost the taxpayer 200k+ euros and has also caused severe distress to the individuals involved. Someone should be severely sanctioned for this, as it would set down a marker against other bad decisions that are made within other Government bodies. There has to be consequences for people in the Public service that make incorrect decisions and inevitably cost the taxpayers serious amounts of cash.

The homeowners should only have been awarded a new front door and an apology.

You need to read the article. This was way ott from the boys in blue/black and as it turns out they kicked in multiple doors in the middle of the night without a warrant because someone's car was parked nearby. Totally unnecessary and unacceptable and there needs to be consequences

The Gardai involved should have been heavily fined and the money for the damages awarded to these people docked from their wages.

Are we going next to have army snipers blazing away with live ammunition on the streets as happened in Monagahan last week?
The public terrorized and the govt pretend this is phukking normal!

Are you serious? This is a massive breach of human rights and the victims should be compensated. What we need now is for the people that sanctioned this terrible decisions to face serious consequences.

The Irish army unleashed a hail of live bullets onto rural roads in Monaghan in order to slaughter a few stray cattle.

The lives of local civilians were endangered by this crass and negligent action.

There is a thread on the subject should you care to look it up.

Anyway you seem to dislike any criticism of your super inneficient FG govt and that about sums you up.

Awards totalling €83,000 - costs over €200, 000 - cannot see how costs this high can be justified on such a straightforward case

Come along, if it was deliberately carried out to people the Gardai knowingly knew were innocent, then I would agree with you.

This was a gross error and upsetting for the family, but they can laugh it off or cry like a bithc with a bleeding knee and they have chosen that route.

Looks like you are of the mentality that everyone should have the same mentality as yourself. This was a traumatic incident for the Citizens involved and if you can recognise this, you dont have an ounce of empty, simple as!

Just because there is a thread on something doesn't automatically make it true - one of your own comments on that thread

"Introducing army sniper squads was designed to terrorize the local community"

As the FM said, the award money should come from the salaries of those who carried out this raid and those who sanctioned it. No consequence means it could happen again.

I've stated that it was no doubt distressing but that it was an error.

The family involved should accept that and move on without trying to make on it.

There has been a consequence, the Gardai have been made a fool of.

This is the thread where you refused to admit your insistence lthe banks called in the army was wrong and decided that people unknown were at risk and this was a dry run for the state murder of protesters. You started from a position of ignorance and widely extrapolated from there.

I have never once defended this government. There you go again making incorrect statements from flawed premises.

They make a fool of themselves more often than not and should be completely retrained and re branded as happened with PSNI .As for these clowns or the ones that gave the order , instant dismissal with loss of all benefits would be in order.
