Seven men fined following violent distrubance on tram ahead of demonstration
The journalist here must have been forced by his editor to write this. He basically writes the Antifa mob as poor victims.
This incident was filmed both by RTÉ and by the CCTV so there was no doubt what happened.Seven Dublin men who were involved in a violent disorder on board a Luas tram have received fully suspended sentences.
One of the convicted men, Sean Kindillon (28), said he was on his way into the city centre to protest against the group when the trouble broke out and he stepped in.
Jamal Garamanli (30) told gardaí he felt his friend Kindillon was being attacked and stepped in to defend him.
I wonder do they have jobs with employers who know their employees are involved in "violent disorder" ANTIFA related antics?Kindillon and Garamanli, both of Oranmore Road, Ballyfermot each pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to violent disorder at Chancery Street, Dublin 7, on February 6th, 2016.
Ian Baker (41) of Grangemore Park, Donaghmede; Patrick Dunne (33) of Ushers Quay; Michael Farrell (27) of Clarion Quay Lower, Mayor Street; Jamie Whelan (25) of Sycamore Road, Finglas; and Andrew Byrne (22) of Rollins Court, Sallynoggin also pleaded guilty to the same offence.
Judge Nolan sentenced all of the accused to two years imprisonment, but suspended the sentence in its entirety on strict conditions. He also ordered that six of the men collect €2,500 within 18 months and that Byrne collect €1,500 within the same period which will be transferred to a charity.
Peanuts. Can O'Loughlin file a civil suit for getting a serious head from these scumbags?
The lesson here boys is run with the dogs and the law will catch up on you, its always important to prosecute.Garamanli has two previous convictions for minor road traffic offences. Byrne has two previous convictions for possession of pepper spray and affray.
Dunne has one previous conviction for a minor public order offence and Farrell has one previous conviction for assault. Kindillon, Whelan and Baker have no previous convictions.
Jim Fitzpatrick thinks this is a great miscarriage of justice btw: @Tadhg Gaelach
