Aggressive beggarsthe judge found that the section was unconstitutional because it interfered with the constitutional right of freedom of expression and freedom to communicate with other people.
He said he swept the street outside his shop every morning to remove used needles and empty blister-packs. The problem is out of control. There is no leadership on this issue. No one is doing anything about it. Dublin City Council will tell you its a matter for the guards. The guards will say theres no law against begging.
Judges don't live in the real world, or rather Irish judges don't live in the real world. Their view of the world is colour by the rose tinted glasses put on them when they first attended their private nursery school at 4 /5 and it hasn't altered the view since.Personally I agree that begging is and should be allowed, that said I think there should be limits on how solicitous a person can be.
Law preventing begging struck down - RTÉ News
Also is there any update on this:
How many judges live in crime ridden areas. Most live in the leafy suburbs well away from any trouble spots and most likely, if in Dublin, in postal districts 4, 6, 14 and 16. They only time most of them travel to the city/town is when they are working in the courts and there they have plenty of security. Then it's off home to the nice house in the nice area and the nice golf or rugby club with equally nice people.Utter utter rubbish. If anyone lives in the real world it is judges who have to look at the mistakes of the politicians everyday in their court rooms.
That is a stereotype. Judges live amongst people the same as anyone else.How many judges live in crime ridden areas.

Yes they have responsibility but this thread is about begging laws and the professionals have felt that said laws contravene our constitution.Is there no such thing as personal responsibility anymore? As long as we have the attitude that criminals, drug addicts, beggars have no responsibility for how their lives turned out then that lifestyle will continue and continue to be tolerated by those who should know better.
