Money well spent?

  • by

For once I’m kind of lost for words here. Seemingly the so-called “operation anvil” (the crack down on gun crime) led to big increases in the Garda overtime bill in 2006. Okay, fair enough but then I learn that the figure is over EUR 102 million for just overtime and I recall more shootings and gun related crime in the last year than ever before. As I say, I’m really stuck for words here, trying to contemplate exactly how that much money could have been spent on a force that is not winning the battle against serious crime. source: Irish Times
