Default Buses attacked

96 fm report two buses were hit by stones in knocknaheeny last night and services stopped, Surely it is time to withdraw services there completely if it is unsafe for the drivers,

Weren't there similar attacks on busses carried out in Rochestown/Mount Oval recently?

I remember one guy suggesting it was northsiders coming down on the bus, getting off it and throwing objects at it


Bus Eireann should inform the residents that there'll be a suspension of services in the area for a certain period of time, that will escalate exponentially if there are subsequent attacks.

Don't think the neighbours will go easy on the wee scrotes if their local bus service is suspended as winter is drawing in.

Gardaí and Bus Eireann officials mightn't be able to identify the guilty parties (despite the fact that the CCTV cameras on busses recording the bus surroundings is top class), but you can be sure the locals can and will put a stop to it if they deem it necessary

Yes similar anti social incidents happened on buses to rochestown area, Pj in
particular tried to point the finger at people from other areas, on your last point re locals in knocknaheeny putting a stop to this carry on i wonder do people actually care enough to do so?

It was bad back in the mid 90s so the buses wouldn’t go up there and would just go through Baker’s road to Churchfield.
It’s the older people who will suffer again for the actions of a few scumbags

But there are cars and bikes flying around up there too. They buy the cars, don’t bother to tax and insure and are up all night doing handbrake turns. It’s pretty bad up by the primary school.

Not a cop in sight then.

But drive down to the Wellington bridge and the cops are there with their check points looking for tax and insurance.

The cops are afraid of their lives to go up to that particular area. The residents are suffering in silence.
It’s a mess.

How many times have we heard that? It's a fucked up police force, and getting less relevant by the day.

If a garda was to give one of these scobes a slap he would be in deep trouble,
Im not advocating bating the head off a fella but surely a slap is warranted in some situations, Garda morale must be low when they see the same fellas strolling around with multiple convictions ,

Permitting Gardaí to use violence might seem appropriate when you read about crime in the paper but long term it reduces the respect people have for the force. If you "warrant" police to slap a kid around for throwing stones at a bus, there will be Gardaí who will turn that into a beating. Police forces should show restraint and just implement the law as best they can in conjunction with the courts.

Obviously, if you're a tabloid troll you'll say the Gardaí have no respect credibility etc, but it's untrue. In Ireland there's still plenty of trust and respect for police in the general population. Visit South America or watch a doc on it to see how distrusted and corrupt the police are. You can't walk past them without having to pay a made up "fine".

It's one of those social conformity things in Ireland to give out about the Gardaí without any consideration for how difficult their job is and the type of cunts they have to deal with day after day after day.

I always find it asmuing when I hear people giving out about being caught speeding. They call the cops "sneaky" for being in a 50 kph zone or a long straight stretch in a 80kph road where you might accelerate up to 100kph. It's total bullshit. You're not special, the law is the law. Don't speed, and you won't get a fine.

They set up check points to make the roads safer. FFS, it's not a speed "trap" set up to squeeze coin out of you for their personal financial gain.

I often hear people complaining about the sneaky cnuts hiding with the speed gun, i have no issues with speed checks , if it saves a life then it is justified,
