This will be a lesson to all medical personnel who might be tempted to rush to save a life.

A few years back, before we went rule crazy, a friend of mine had to rush from Sandyford to Raheny because his chronically ill child had taken a bad turn and needed help. It was at night.
He was stopped by gardai for speeding. When he explained his case the gardai said "follow us".
The gardai proceeded at high speed, with siren and lights, with my friend doing his best to keep up, and made it home in record time.

Would that happen today?

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.
Kathryn Thomas has had a number of penalty points quashed as "driving is essential to her employment."

This man, a surgeon, was trying to safe someone's life.

This country makes me feel sick sometimes.

As I said earlier, that is nonsense. He was speeding to a hospital. A hospital were there were other qualified doctors and nurses on shift who were capable of resuscitation. There was no legitimate reason for this doctor or any other doctor to be driving at those speeds through a city centre. We have seen time and time again trouble with these doctors imported from the ME and Africa. They don't believe the rules apply to them. The HSE is not trying to recruit the best they are recruiting the cheapest and nobody is doing checks on them. This article reads as though this doctor was the only person in Limerick who could help the patient. It's nonsense and he should consider himself very lucky not to have killed someone on his way to the hospital or to have lost his licence.

Darkie? :roll: I haven't heard that word used since, I'd guess, around the 1960's, and the people who used the word even then were usually lacking in the education department, primitive peasants who had never travelled much beyond their own parish.........................
Darkie? As we are about to enter the year 2017? Jesus Christ! What sort of moronic fukkwit are you?

Judge Marian O'Leary said there were no exemptions for careless driving and expressed concerns that Medani would not have been able to react if an incident arose. She used her discretion not to disqualify Medani and fined him €200.

Considering the speed involved, he did well to keep his licence.
"After Bobby Byrnes (pub) he increased his speed to 135kmh in a 50kmh zone on O'Connell Avenue. There were a number of vehicles travelling in the opposite direction

I think, though I could be wrong , that cyp was highlighting the fact that a " non-national " medic was done for speeding in the cause of trying to reach a patient, whereas the law of probability would hint at the fact that a paleface would get way with it; indeed would probably get an escort.

Plus cYp likes to see the kneejerk response to the use of the word "darkie" while the Deeply Concerned over-look his substantive point which is about real racism. :D

OK, if the intention was irony then I missed that, and I apologise to him unreservedly. It's hard to tell on this site though, given the number of outlandish, bigoted savages who post on this discussion board.

Obviously the Good Judge and the Garda concluded the 'darkie' was lying through his teeth as the Nigerians are apt to do, without fear.

Go visit the district courts and see for yourself.

I'd be concerned if I were his employer at his personal recklessness - at his potential to take himself out of circulation as a saver of lives.

It's the old airline safety rule; if the oxygen masks descend put yours on before then looking after your children. It's sort of a hierarchy of care.

A surgeon has the potential to save far more lives than they may wipe out on the road. They should probably be told to first look after themselves before putting themselves at risk in order to perform an intervention on one single person.

ETA: If a surgeon through recklessness needs surgery themselves, there are now two surgeons tied up.

Prejudiced! Why do you assume a white doctor would get a hooker?

But were Thomas' points struck out pre or post the penalty points scandal?
