Garda gangland list is stolen from squad car

Garda gangland list is stolen from squad car: "commented, on August 18, 2008 at 1:13 p.m.:
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'."?THE"REAL"REASONS PROJECT?

CLLR AODHÁN Ó RÍORDÁIN: McGRATH CHOOSES SAVING GOVT. OVER CREDIT UNION FEARS: "The decision of two Independent Deputies to vote with the government today saved Fianna Fail and the Greens from the potentially embarrassing situation of having to rely on the casting vote of the Ceann Comhairle to save them on a key financial measure.The government won the vote on the final stages of the Central Bank Bill 2010 by a margin of 69 to 65 votes. However, both Deputies Finian McGrath (Dublin North Central) and Joe Behan (Wicklow) voted with the government on this occasion. Had they voted with the opposition, the margin would have been 67 and 67 and the government would then have required the casting vote of the Ceann Comhairle to save it."?
