Gardai Are Above The Law “Just Like The Paedophile Priests In The Bad Old Days”

category galway | anti-war | press release author Monday June 24, 2013 11:34author by Galway Alliance Against War Report this post to the editors

The Galway Alliance Against War claims in a press release that the Gardai see themselves above the law “just like the paedophile priests in the bad old days.”

Letter from the "Boys in Blue"
Letter from the "Boys in Blue"

The statement comes in response to a refusal by Garda Superintendent Roche of Ballinasloe Garda station to uphold a complaint by the Galway Alliance Against War’s PRO, Niall Farrell, and his family in relation to a raid on their home over a year ago on June 7th 2012. The complaint was based on the failure of the Gardai to allow the Farrell family read a copy of the search warrant. During the raid a desktop computer was taken and 13 months later still has not been returned.

The GAAW statement from Niall Farrell reads: “The ‘Boys in Blue’ are the same as the ‘Men in Black’ of old. They are above the law. Just like the paedophile priests in the bad old days, they can break the law with impunity. The Gardai can act with impunity, because they investigate complaints against themselves and always fail to find fault. But sooner rather than later the Gardai, like the Catholic clergy, will fall from ‘grace’.
“The reason for the raid on our family home stems from GAAW daring to publicise on social media sites information we had received anonymously concerning a peace action at Shannon airport in December 2011 in which a US military plane was sabotaged.

“The raid took place 6 months after the peace action and was a blatant act of harassment, just as is the refusal of the Gardai to return a desktop computer seized 13 months ago. However, if the Gardai think these acts of intimidation are going to silence our opposition to Shannon being used as a US military hub they are wrong. We will continue to campaign against the Irish Government’s role as an accessory to mass murder in the US led wars in foreign lands.”

Clare Daly has already had, more than a quarter million hits on YouTube, while it is just a one day wonder with the local Irish corporate media at home. Here is just a small sample of the international response to Clare Daly. I suppose she can expect more harassment in her car, like the Farrell family had from the Zionist Blueshirts, with more prompting from SS UK/US.

Clare Daly has more gonads than all the male members of that parliament.

I congratulate on her courage to speak TRUTH! Too bad that there are not more people like her!! God bless her and to those who believe jn her.

Clare Daly for Irish PM.

Daly certainlly has called a spade a spade here. I wonder if she will back her talk up with action. A war criminal is waiting for his cell number, will she have him arrested?

I think not

That was a full-blown Richard NIxon response. Hilarious to see that guy pull it off without addressing a single point that Daly raised.

The lady wins! The man in the ( coward) yellow tie......lies and loses.

The G8...wow, yes, meeting and seeing all the painted doors and windows of those business that aren't there. Hey, maybe Detroit's privatized managers will run with that meme.

Never Forget! Ireland was NEUTRAL in WW II. De Valera and the real way to demonstrate a nation's INDEPENDENCE. : )

"LET'S CALL THINGS BY THEIR CORRECT WORDS", SHE SAID.

THAT RIGHT THERE IS A HELLUVA IDEA!

OBAMA SAYS, PEACE, HE MEANS WAR. ETC.
NOT JUST OBAMA, BUT ALL OF OUR SO-CALLED "LEADERS".
THEY'RE ACTUALLY "FOLLOWERS". NO ONE'S LEADING.

SHE, MS DALY , WAS GREAT.
AND I LOVE HOW SHE LOOKED HIM IN THE EYE WAITING
FOR A PROPER ANSWER AND TOLD HIM OUTRIGHT THAT HE GAVE NONE.
AS IF OBAMA IS PROTECTING NORTHERN IRELAND!! LOL.

ONE MORE THING, THE CHAMBER LOOKED QUITE EMPTY.
LIKE THE U.S. CHAMBERS DO WHENEVER ONE CONGRESSMAN SPEAKS... TO AN EMPTY HALL, PATHETICALLY.
AT LEAST THEY HAVE A PUBLIC BACK AND FORTH THERE.

BUT THESE EMPTY CHAMBERS... IT SYMBOLIZES HOW "EMPTY"
OUR SOVEREIGN GOVERNMENTS HAVE BECOME.
BECAUSE BANKERS, BIG CORPORATE INTERNATIONALISTS/NWO BOSSES ARE ACTUALLY IN CHARGE. THEY'RE ELSEWHERE!...SOME BOARDROOM OR LUXURY OFFICE OR TRAVELING OR WHATEVER AND
COUNTING MONEY, NO DOUBT.

Clare Daly is an exceedingly articulate lady with great courage. As a Canadian I would love to have her replace at least a dozen of the leaders in our present government. Or better still have her replace the whole government.-- This is a lady who has a real grasp of this planet's basic problems. She's obviously is not seeking favors to benefit herself.

rpdiplock· 1 day ago
Wow! So, there still are genuine politicians - with the intestinal fortitude to be honest. What a 'gal.'

I would leave my mother's home ... for Ms Daly.

proletariatprincess· 1 day ago
I think this is my first view of the Irish Parliament in session. I have seen the Brits lots of times, but this was outstanding....almost like Galloway addressing Congress. It really demonstrates how badly broken is the US system of government. The Toasheach is the Prime Minister of Ireland and he must answer questions just like in Britain. It may be my bias as an Irish American, but the Irish seem to have better command of the English language than the English themselves. The Irish are also amazingly good at debate which is why this clip is so impressive. I hope that Ms Daly grabs the attention of the world like she did here in this clip. Well done.

If only we in the UK had such a politician of Clare Daly's courage, all we have is Ed Miliband who today announced he has promoted Rachel Reeves......... well surprise surprise:

The Jewish Chronicle - Marcus Dysch, October 19, 2011

Labour Friends of Israel has led its first delegation to the country for two years, with seven MPs meeting political and business leaders.

On the delegation were MPs Rachel Reeves, Anne McGuire, Jonathan Reynolds, Dan Jarvis, Michael McCann and Pamela Nash. New LFI chairman John Woodcock MP led the visit.

So Rachel has got her reward already.

canadianjoe· 1 day ago
Don't be fooled by this. She is exactly what her comments indicated. prostitutes and pimps! this is merely another well rehearsed performance by politicians, to give people the illusion there is someone looking out for them. I guess she must have drawn the short straw on this occasion. all this proves is that politicians all over the world, from the lowest councillor to presidents and prime ministers, are controlled by the same people. They are ALL I repeat ALL self serving psychopaths, interested only in personal gain.

What a statement ! Where are the elected officials like her in our country?Grovelling for status to the corporate machinery that is destroying freedom and democracy I submit.
Go Clare go.She has more balls than most men.

Quickly, get that Taoiseach, [pronounced: "TEE-shock" - head of the government in Ireland.] .more cliche 'cool-aid;' he must have exhausted his heretofore controlled grandiloquence from dancing around the issues using his stash of rehearsed rhetoric laced with diversions in lieu of answering legitimate questions in the Irish Parliament. His posture & voice struggled to find real argument to sufficiently disarm Mz Clare Daly's reality based queries. Her rebuttal of mr T's comments at 7:02 into the video aught to be heard by folk across the pond. Mr T seemed like he couldn't wait to take his seat ...each time.

Folk, [especially Americans] aught to laud that courageous Irish TD representing Dublin North, she's a very brave politician, in deed; one who dares to blow a whistle and point focus on poignant revelations and confirmations of skulduggery already afoot in 'corporate NI; as well as, her citing of compelling statements confirming the stretched arms of Empirical corporatism found everywhere; and its arsenal flown on civilian airbuses passing through Shannon airport have been breaking its own nation's laws, or so she says. Well worthy of a peek this video. Thanks for sharing.

WhuThe?!?· 22 hours ago
Wow that response was so predictable, changing what she said and accusing her of basically, treason, and trying to break up their fragile peace, when she wasn't even talking about that. He knows that is a sensitive spot, an emotional spot for the citizenry. Very clever, and unfortunately, works all too well in most societies. Feed on people's emotions to destroy the messenger. Perhaps everybody has learned from the Jewish model, anybody who dares criticize their unjust behavior is automatically labelled 'anti-semitic'. And in this analogous situation, he labels the messenger as unloyal and unpatriotic, and she apparently is neither.

Ms. Daly has vocalised the words in many hearts today.

Allow Deputy Clare Daly to come to Canada and show PM Stephen Harper how to give a sovereign speech unadulterated by zionist rhetoric. A standing ovation for Deputy Daly !
