Daingean: A shameful silence as the children suffered

Daingean: A shameful silence as the children suffered: "And as we look again at these and other issues - the administration of justice, the operations of banks, the links between business and politics - it's plain that the most pervasive influence on Irish society is class."THEN AND NOW"THE CAUSES OF CRIME"INEQUALITY"

Daingean: Broken people

Daingean: Broken people.WORKING-CLASS.

Daingean

Daingean: "No punishment books - required by law - had survived from Daingean. He didn't know what happened to them."AMAZING?

Daingean

Daingean: "Describing the school"IRISH INSTITUTION" as 'Dickensian', he wrote that the conditions in which its herd of cows was kept were considerably better than those for the boys. Crucially, he added: 'I am of the opinion that very handsome profits are made on the farm, but I can see no evidence of any of the profits being ploughed back for the benefit of the boys.'"???????

Daingean

Daingean: "I was glad to be leaving the claustrophobic poverty of Limerick and the mindless cruelty of Sexton Street."CRIME,WHAT IS CRIME AND WHAT IS ITS CAUSES?

Daingean

Daingean: "He expressed concern that there were many people who did not want the truth to come out and who 'will work against the commission to make sure that the truth does not come out'."SECRECY AND CRONYISM ARE THE TWO BIGGEST CANCERS IN IRISH SOCIETY,THEN AND NOW.

Daingean

Daingean: "As a matter of verifiable record, he had been a progressive reformer who sought to humanise conditions for the boys, but was frustrated at every turn by public and State indifference."STRANGE THEN THAT HIS NAME IS ATTACHED TO DOCUMENTS THAT SENT TEENAGERS TO PORTLAOISE"PRISON"IN THE 1960s?

Daingean

Daingean: "I was approached by a retired civil servant named Risteard Mac Conchradha. He had been a member of the Kennedy committee whose 1970 report signalled the beginning of the end for industrial schools. He wanted me to write about the horrors he and others had uncovered in Daingean"?

Daingean

Daingean: "The published report contained no reference to the practice. Peter Berry, secretary of the Department of Justice, deemed that such disclosure would have caused 'a grave public scandal'."MORE CONCERNED ABOUT A SCANDAL[PUBLIC IMAGE]THAN WHAT WAS GOING ON?

Dáil Éireann - Volume 433 - 01 July, 1993 - Adjournment Debate. - Statement by Garda in Drink Driving Case.: "When this drink driving case came before the Dublin District Court for the second occasion it had to be adjourned because the investigating garda, who was the prosecuting garda, from Donnybrook Garda station, said: “Summonses keep disappearing in connection with these charges. Somebody has been interfering with this case internally.” I regard that as a very serious matter. It is important in [940] the enforcement of our laws, particularly in regard to the enforcement of our criminal law, that we have a fair and equitable system. The establishment of the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions under the 1974 Act was done not just to streamline the way we deal with prosecution but in order to have an independent office holder. Under section 6 of the Act, it is an offence for any person to communicate in any way or to seek to influence the Director in the taking of a prosecution or in the proceeding with or dropping of charges"???????

The horrors of the past and the hypocrisies of the present. | Irish Penal Reform Trust (IPRT)

The horrors of the past and the hypocrisies of the present. Irish Penal Reform Trust (IPRT): "The children detained in industrial schools were essentially treated as criminals largely because of their poverty. The rightful horror that society is now expressing about this appalling injustice resonates today when it is generally only those who grow up in the most severe poverty that we send to our prisons."

Facebook Padd O'connell: "AS fred johnson from galway said'picking on the weak'mary Hanifin has the unmitigated gall to state on rte radio that new regulations will be required to tackle dole fraud.Of course ,i'd forgotten,only people on the dole commit fraud or any other financial crime.The chancers who brought the country to its knees are still walking free,cossetted,protected.They are not likely to be on the dole.Not one of them [this is a safe prediction]will ever stand in the dock of a courtroom.We know this.Yet social welfare payments will be cut,employment schemes chopped-the kind of communities they serve are,after all ,merely dole fodder.who cares?They will never provide political'donations;Any of them who grows up healthy 'enough'to join the dole queue will find themselves before the courts if they even think about doing a job on the side.Never have i heard a politician,a government minister,outline more lucidly in one remark the 'true'political philosophy of our present government.It is all about'SOCIAL CLASS"and maintaining difference;about those who are not [deemed]important enough on the social scale to protect and save from poverty and ill-health (a natural consequence).This is depraved and immoral political reasoning.

Garda gangland list is stolen from squad car

Garda gangland list is stolen from squad car: "It would make you wonder this criminal intelligence bulletin going missing.
I suppose it could be put down to 'exceptional circumstances ?'Just like the case of Kieran Boylan who had drug charges of €1.3m dropped on the last day of the legal term in our courts. The Director of Public Prosecutions is I understand trying to bring about what is termed 'the reasons project'to let members of the public know why certain decisions were made by his office. Recently he appealed a suspended sentence handed down to Brian Wall who was caught with €145,000 worth of heroin - will he be doing the same in the Kieran Boylan case?. Or will the ordinary public still be left with a feeling of 'legal nihilism'? As Ross Kemp said on the subject of criminal gangs: 'since time immemorial anyone who feels isolated for whatever reason, will form themselves into groups. At the end it's always a criminality based on human suffering of some kind'."???????

So long as society is divided into classes, there can be no “democracy for all”: one class or another will rule, and it will uphold and promote that kind of democracy which serves its interests and goals. The question is: which class will rule and whether its rule, and its system of democracy, will serve the continuation, or the eventual abolition, of class divisions and the corresponding relations of exploitation, oppression and inequality.' -Bob Avakian'"

Children

Children: "But the experience of growing up poor, devalued, excluded and stigmatised must itself be admitted as a direct and significant influence at the psychological level on the creation of youthful offending.
