    Being honest with you McCloud, imho the behaviour I saw from the jobstown footage, the whole bloody lot of them should be locked up as it was disgraceful and if you think that sort of thing is acceptable in society then we have very different values. As was mentioned above it was hubris on behalf of the guards to think they could convict them on incarceration charges. The likes of this behaviour and troglodytes like Je Suis Derek screaming abuse and sticking camera phones in people's faces does nothing for the socialist cause in Ireland. As for Murphy, he isn't fit to lace Joe Higgins' shoes.

      The Gardaí don't decide that though BA. Not in a case like this.

      Who is and isn't prosecuted, what they are and are not prosecuted for and what Courts these cases take place in is decided by the DPP. (an accused person can opt for a higher Court or a lower Court can refuse a case if it deems it too serious)

      Gardaí gather evidence, assemble and present that evidence and make recommendations....but the decisions are those of the DPP solely.

      Sure in smaller summary cases Gardaí initiate prosecutions with a blanket consent of sorts from the DPP.

      False Imprisonment does seem a big step to prove from a disorderly Protest. Even a violent one if it was that.I would imagine the DPP placed emphasis on the statements of those, likely Gardaí, who state they heard Murphy say certain things.

      Murphy denied saying these things I believe....but if he didn't give evidence those denials are meaningless. The CCTV must have painted a different picture for the jury


      Thats all guess work though. I wasn't at the trial to hear the facts so I can't say anything for sure.
