Street art ?
Well it used to be something to be frowned on, now graffiti is art.
It is strange the more you look for work the harder it is to find. Then you decide to head for home and you see the hands rising in the air.
I got 2 runs to the airport and Swords while I was just heading home.
One of the guys had a story for me about a small builder in Galway who was working on a job for a Garda, building a small extension.
Well just as he finished work he went to the pub for a pint and as he drove back to his home he was stopped by the said Garda who breathalysed him, and he failed the breath test.
The Garda it is alleged, looked at him straight in the eye and said.
"This is very serious, you are well over the legal limit.
But you have a large bill for me. So if you forget about your bill I will forget that you were ever breathalysed"
The builder was never paid.
If it was me I would hope I would be brave enough to present my bill a week later with my mobile phone turned on to record any conversation that might take place.
Some of the things that go on when corruption gets a foothold would baffle the best of minds.
Garda planting drugs and guns to get a conviction.
In Ardee they allowed drug dealing to go on provided the main gangster gave them the details of small time dealers. They had to be getting a good backhander too.
Beating up drunks who are after all just helpless idiots.
It makes you wonder where we are all heading to.
When a bad apple was caught they sent them to Donegal, then the bad apples got together to produce a mad cocktail of crime and deceit.
