I have been only working half days for the last few weeks, so not an awful lot of news.
On Easter Sunday I cruised around and picked up a Phillapeno mother and daughter going to mass.
Her husband was a taxi driver and she is a nurse, making small talk I asked her how her husband was getting on with the taxi driving. She said that he was sick. "Covid" I said. No its Cancer.
The poor unfortunate folks. That cancer is an awful curse. It seems to hit the good people all the time.
The other job today was to the equestrian center in Ballyfermott. I didn't know where it was and we asked a few people.(Dr.Google was no help)
As we got closer he pointed me to a bus stop where he had been set upon by 3 men with batons. When they had beaten him to a pulp one of them phoned a girl on a video call. "WE got the bastard look at how we beat him" the reply came "That's not him you stupid shower of retards"
They just walked away after calling an ambulance. Nice people.
He showed me the bruising and scars on his body and arms and legs.
Then back to business.
Down from the equestrian center is the back wall of Wheatfield prison and an exchange of goods was taking place, when we were going back into town he remarked that he was only out 2 1/2 weeks and last week he got 15 mobile phones into the prison without damage.
The thing about this guy is that he will only live for another 6 months if he is lucky as he is doing all the running around and carrying cash and drugs and he is very expendable.
Now for the UK news
Another case where a little boy called Logan Mwangi was beaten to death by his mother stepfather and a teenage boy, his body was thrown into a local river.
The boy was on the list of vulnerable people
On 6 th of August Verphy Kudu abandoned her baby of 20 months for 6 days while she celebrated her 19 th birthday by visiting friends the length and breath of England. There was no one to look after the child. When she came home the baby was dead. The one thing that is strange in this situation the place where she was living with her baby was supposed to be supervised.
Anyhow she will not be doing any partying for the next 9 years.
It is not much of a punishment for killing a child
