Homophobic Attack In Coolock
 
# 1 : Wednesday 23-10-2019 @ 00:58
 
 
Marc Power was ambushed by a bunch of homophobic savages in Coolock on Tuesday 15th after he responded to a request on grinder to a meet at the Omniplex there, his contact tried to lure him to a more secluded location but his instincts made him ignore that request and head for that public space where he was subjected to a brutal attack, most of the blows by the laughing psychopats were directed at his head in a clear attempt to kill him. After his removal to hospital the local Gardai said that they would take a statement eight days later, after a flurry of activity on social media, a senior source in the Gardai arranged for that interview to take place the next day. What does that say about the attitude of those who are supposed to protect the community when they treat yet another attempted murder of a gay person as just another inconvienance. We were promised so much by our great friend and gay liasion officer Finbar who really did care about us before he moved on to higher and well deserved promotions, but since then...WHAT? Nothing by my estimation, not good enough, not good enough by any means.

I find it very hard to believe that the Gardai said they would take the statement 8 days later! Or if they did they must have had a very good reason. I think we need a bit more clarity on this matter.
Butters where are you getting your information from? Was it an article in the paper?

No, it was from the victim himself.

Right but your whole post sounded like a blind biased rant. It would be interesting to hear the Gardai's point of view.

He was on Grindr also, except he got set up by thieves and got robbed after they drugged him. He died sadly, did this guy get set up for a homophobic attack and people need to be careful online.

To all you doubting Thomas's out there

Smarten up guys

1) There is a large homophobic population out there Dublin is a big cosmopolitan city

2) Meets in secluded areas yes you run the risk of walking yourself into troublesome problems

3)The Gargi have their own way of dealing with matters be it right or wrong so accept it you are not going to change that so let them proceed their own way they will in the end regardless of any ones protest (save arguing against that one)

4) Get on with looking after your own health and safety instead of disagreeing with what is common sense

5) Meet in public areas and even tell someone where you are going

Do not protest against what is proven fact (even though their are those who will)

Be safe out there!

I don't think anyone is disagreeing with your points. But point 3 needs more clarification.

Are you and Butters saying there is an element in the Gardai that have under investigated this? That have no interest in bringing the perpretrators to justice? Just to be clear....

Edit - They are treating it as a hate crime and are investigating it as such. What more do you think they can do?

If this had been a woman lured into a trap and beaten about the head with hammers & such there would be uproar in the country and the Gardai would probably have made several arrests by now.. Mind boggling in a country with an openly Gay leader.. I'm with Butters on this one.. Might be time to mobilise, get out on the streets, launch Some Twitter or Change.org campaigns (which i will support).. Time to stand up and say no more guys..

With all the public interest do you not feel they feel under pressure to make an arrest? You're all being hysterical.
