Another two shootings in Dublin lastnight....

What the hell is going on????...
Reports saying that one guy was a well known dissadent from Co Tyrone suspected to be involved in the first murders ..
Have the Gardai lost total control with these gangs, so under funded they lack manpower ect??..
Or simply happy to let these scumbags murder eachother..

The Guards were never in control of the situation, how could they be? It's called the thin blue line for a reason. If Peter McVerry is right, then it's a deeply personal feud that has no end in sight. We don't have the resources to police these areas to the extent that is needed and one would wonder if policing these neighbourhoods like war zones is the right thing to do. I work nearby and there already seems to be a lot of disruption for the ordinary citizen living in the north inner city.

Sorry for the rambling post, but short of martial law, I don't think anything can be done.

Probably a case of the criminal element being better armed than the police. Gardai are outgunned. Training will tell you that if you have foreknowledge that you are outgunned you do not engage the enemy.

I'm surprised at the lack of retaliation by the Hutch mob`,I wish they would all just piss off though.

These criminals are engaged in a tit for tat revenge antics. Unfortunately, I can only see this continuing or getting worse. The worry is for an innocent person to get killed.

Use it.

I don't have any interest in Britain.
I'm talking about Ireland.

And what you're saying is really rather hysterical. Chicago and LA has a massive problem with gangs, how many times have they deployed the military?

If you're going to make a suggestion, at least provide examples of when it has worked.

Unlike you to be not be so educated on a subject..
No interest in Britain? Well given that so many of these thugs originaly hail from Britain, you should be more interested..

The feud involves dissadent republicans from the North of Ireland, many of them have appeared on numerous charges in Southern courts, yet they are still allowed to roam free????...

If you put soldiers on the streets of any city to fight against a hidden enemy than they will invariably start to mistrust and even target ordinary citizens. This happened in countless countries and in countless wars, so geography has very little to do with it. It wouldn't work, of course if Super can offer a reasoned argument as to why it might, I would be delighted to hear it.

I don't think involving the army to tackle these gangland killings would be a solution. The Gardai need more resources but ultimately these criminals will find a way to target each other.

Decriminalising/legalising drugs would be a big step in neutralising the criminal activity in my opinion. But of course that's politically unpalatable.

Well it was on the agenda. But nobody voted for Labour.

Much of the problem stems from arguments within about their involvement with drugs, the hardline repbulicans are clamping down on the dealers ect..
So legalising drugs is not issue surely.
