A darkie doctor got a call from their hospital that a patient was critical

They sped to the hospital - the testimony seems to indicate it was safe

A garda stopped them, detained them for 5 minutes...the patient in any case died ~12 hours later

The Garda moved forward with the criminal case...the judge convicted:

Surgeon rushing to 'save someone's life' fined for careless driving - Independent.ie

(1) The garda should not have prosecuted
(2) The judge could have used a strike out ...it is done i odd cases like these

However...the defendant was a darkie...

Read that story a couple of days ago. The thread title is not one bit loaded at all!!

What are you implying cyp? ;)

'Darkie' doctor or not the fact that it case even got to a Court is a bit beyond me but I suppose its something of a by-product of the whole quashing of penalty notices scandal.

If it were a "native" consultant, garda discretion would have applied. I imagine he would have got a police escort to his destination. I've never heard of a case against a doctor like this before. Very odd. Sounds a bit racist.

[edit] Then again, 135 in a 50km zone is taking the p!ss, and narrowly missing an ambulance. So, maybe not ...

I assumed he was native. Was the Garda native?

If it was a traveller robbing a house there wouldn't be a guard to be seen ...
Typical handy catch motoring offence ... The guards turn their backs on proper crime ...

The emergency services should be called on for this emergency type, it's not the first time and won't be the last, drivers with advanced driving training leap into action to escort the medic to the patient, ensuring safer protection of medic and public. Skin colour is not an issue, it is deliberately provocative of the OP to mention it. What the judgment will have hinged on was failure of the medic to prove that the speeding was required, just because a patient is critical does not require the medic's immediate presence if it is clear that the nurses are following correct procedure and applying all possible measures.

It is a racist perception of people as belonging first to a colour-code and then to their profession. It has nothing to do with the story. For example: I rang a white plumber yesterday and he sent his white apprentice... Tiresome and illegal.

"Darkie doctor"
Is this racist language allowed on Politics.ie ????

Sounds like racist behaviour also from Gardai and judicial system.

Why are people outraged? This guy sped through a city centre putting people's lives at risk. I don't care what his reasons were, he could have killed someone and if he had hit a pedestrian there'd be not a jot of sympathy for him.

What concerns me most about this story is that it sounds like there was nobody on duty who could resuscitate a patient. Were there no other doctors or nurses on duty or something? Surely if this doctors skills are so vital he should be on call in the hospital not at home? Things don't add up in this story.

not much point rushing to save a life if you put other lives in danger?

If people demand zero tolerance policing this is what we can expect to see more of.

I think you should be allowed go with your first instinct. You see him as a n1gger first and last and you are a racist.

Try presenting the facts of the case not the racist spin being spewed. Medical professionals do not have carte blanche to break traffic laws cos of their job.
