    It is not news except when Gardai are consider to be misbehaving. Gardai do great work day in day out. Many years ago a Garda was driving a V I P when a marked Garda-Car travelling at speed cut across their path, the VIP said to the driver — write down the number of the that car so that the driver can be prosecuted for Dangerous Driving. His Garda driver said “Judgement without Investigation”. Do you realise that many of them would be alive today if they took their time instead of putting others first, like unarmed going to a bank raid. Nothing was said for a long time. Hours later the VIP said “Thanks you are right there should be no Judgement prior to proper investigation in any walk of life you have changed the way I look at others”.
