There is an awful lot they don't cover. I see they have another interview with the mother of Rachel O'Reilly on how evil Joe is . FFS

Should the Indo be supporting this ?

https://m.independent.ie/world-news/europe/britain/meet-the-group-who-posed-as-13yearold-when-talking-to-rte-producer-55-leading-to-his-arrest-36338400.html

And did the RTE person commit a crime ?

Legally it may not be a crime as their is no victim but in fairness I think all right minded people want Paedos exposed, preferably before they do what they are planning to do. I have no issue with this being reported.

The Indo divides the world into respectable families and scumbags but sometimes some scumbags can surprise you.

https://m.independent.ie/irish-news/evil-killer-hennessy-went-on-cocaine-and-drinkfuelled-binge-36937130.html

It can be revealed that after the murder Hennessy went to a pub in his native Ballybrack and spent the evening drinking and attempted to procure cocaine. Investigating officers have gathered CCTV footage of him in the respected pub.

“It is highly unusual for a drug dealer to come forward like this to say someone was looking for drugs but then again this is a highly unusual case,” a source said last night.

“This shows how disgusted people, even criminals in the wider community, feel about this vile murder.”
