Someone will be Killed


Claims that thugs taking advantage of garda cuts.

It is only a matter of time before someone is killed as a result of ‘frightening and dangerous levels of violence’ being perpetrated by ‘vicious thugs’ who are taking advantage of a lack of gardai and resources in Waterford, a local councillor has claimed.

Over the festive period, Cllr Hearne said he was made aware of five separate incidents where innocent local families ‘were caught up in a nightmare of other people’s doing’. Included in these was a petrol bomb attack on a home containing a 12-week-old baby on New Year’s Eve.

Minor damage was caused to a home at Birch Avenue, Birchwood, at around 7.40pm on New Year’s Eve when thugs smashed her front windows and repeatedly threw petrol bombs at the house. The Lady of the house (20) was inside at the time with her three sisters and her young brother, while her infant son slept in his cot.
