Caution: Garda at work!
To people living in the North Inner City, the recent revelations at the Dublin City coroner’s court at the inquest into the death of young Terence Wheelock will not come as a surprise. Terence went into a coma from which he never recovered, after sustaining injuries in Store Street Garda station. One witness to his arrest said the Gardai ‘whacked Terence’s head off the side of the van and twisted his broken arm behind his back’.
Sadly, this will not come as a surprise to anyone who has witnessed the operations of the Gardai when dealing with the citizens of the city. There has always been something of a siege mentality amongst the enforcers of law and order in our streets. They appear to have little problems with the force part, whereas their efforts at winning respect within the community have been negligible. Indeed one of the Gardai that quite visibly lost the run of himself on the ‘Reclaim The Streets’ in May 2002, turned out to be a community guard. Obviously on that sunny evening, when he covered up his numbers and flayed his baton wildly into people, thugery came easier to him than did his community work.
