Dawson Street decapitation by Dublin bus - man thrown under bus
crime and justice |
Monday December 10, 2012 15:17 by concerned citizen
''A deaf man has apologised for the death of a man who was hit by a bus following an alleged roadside altercation, a court has heard.
Edward Connors, who is profoundly deaf, has been charged with the manslaughter of Eoghan Dudley.
The 28-year-old died last Thursday evening after suffering severe head injuries in the incident in Dublin city centre.
Connors, 29, who has been living in a homeless hostel in Dublin, was brought before the city's District Court where proceedings were translated through a sign language interpreter.
Cahir O'Higgins, defending, requested that his client have an interpreter present when booked in to prison. He told the judge that Connors also relied on a methadone prescription and asked that all medical assistance be given to him in prison. No application was made for bail. The judge granted legal aid and requested the appropriate authorities to ensure whatever medical assistance is needed.''
Here is an excerpt of what happened in the follow up to this poor unfortuanate man,being decapitated by a bus,his head was also crushed.
He died an awful death,and all this man gets is a manslaughter charge..He will probably be out in two years or on parole or a suspended sentence.
My question is:How do we keep our streets clean?We have to be honest and ask ourselves this without feeling guilty or having a bleeding hearts syndrome about it..
This guy was a methadone dependant,and he ended up homeless due to those unfortunate events.
Anytime im up in dublin,if i turn the wrong street end up on westmoreland street etc,i get hassled or see heroin addicts ''goofing off'',basically that means they are out of their heads stumbling around the street on heroin..
There needs to be zero tolerance,look at new york anywhere you go in new york there is no homeless or druggos display threatening behaviour towards the public.
They are cutting garda numbers,and there is NO garda presence on our streets to make us feel safe,and intercept crime as it happens,not turn up an hour or 20 minutes afterwards.
Thats just my two cents on this issue.Something needs to be done.Zero tolerance.
