Target house parties!!! Bertie urges the cops.
This is the depth of our leader’s vision. This is how thoroughly Bert understands the drug problem.
He wants the police to raid parties in your house. That’ll solve the cocaine problem.
Eh, no Bertie. Wrong. (Though I admit you would know quite a bit about dodgy parties).
If you want results, how about telling the cops to get out of bed with the scumbags who sell the cocaine and arrest them instead. Stop them. Harass them. Demand to know how a seventeen-year-old can afford a 60,000-euro SUV, and if he can’t account for it, take it away from him. Ask the low-life with the new Mercedes-Benz how he was able to buy it on social welfare. Charge him with welfare fraud. Hassle him. Go through their bank records, house purchases, travel arrangements. Take away their houses if they can’t explain where they got the money. Kick them out. Jail them. Make it hurt.
And simultaneously, Bert, you educate people about coke and heroin and all the rest.
That’s how it’s done Bertie, not by ignorant coppers breaking down doors to satisfy the demands of a hysterical media. However, there’s one big obstacle to solving the drug-dealing problem in Ireland and it’s this: the police are afraid. The cops in towns all over the country are afraid of the scumbag families because the scumbags know where the cops live. I can’t blame them. If I was a policeman, my family’s safety would come first too. Nothing will happen until our government adopts the Spanish model and brings in squads of police from outside, with ski-masks, guns, the whole lot, and takes on these dirt-bags in the only terms they understand.
As I said, you won’t do it by crashing parties, Bert.
