    Unless he’s got a massive ding dong his elbows are at right angles. I reckon he is fiddling with his phone, probably commenting on BS. Guess the avatar ?

    I hear him hummin’…. “The tide is high but I’m holding on….. I’m gonna be your number one
    I’m not the kind of girl who gives up just like that
    Oh, nooooooowoooooooowow……..”

    It’s clear as day he’s not going the toilet. Honestly look at his elbows, I don’t know about anyone else but if my arms were bent that high up(like when looking at phone) I wouldn’t be able to reach my snake to hold it

      I agree Anne.

      one of the most distasteful side of the internet has always been online witch hunts and it would be a shame to see broadsheet moving into that sphere

        But we can poke fun at it, can’t we. Yes, it’s a shame that those jumping the gun and mouthing off ‘blah, blah on duty’ etc… but can’t the rest of us just have a laugh at a funny pic :)

          yeah you have a point I suppose, I’m just sensitive that gardai always get given such a hard time and think it effects their overall attitude and performance

            Did you say before that you’ve two kids that are Guards or am I mixing you up with someone else?

          2. jonotti

            Its actually a fair point. I know plenty of gardai that find it hard to deal with the level of vitriol when they are genuine decent public servants trying to do their best.

            They should be quite rightly subject to scrutiny. If they don’t like being in the spotlight then don’t do a public service job where they appear in public dressed in high vis clothing. The police of any country should not get special treatment or be less accountable than anyone else. If it was a nurse in uniform or a doctor or teacher in this same pose in a photo it would quite rightly be on here as well. Guards are not sacred beings immune from a funny photo or any scrutiny.

        Broadsheet is more or less the home of the witch hunt in Ireland.

        Just have a look at the army press officer, John Waters and Joan Rivers obit here.

        1. Deluded

          Ok, I just had a look. The army fella was all over the meeja. Actually he was on the telly. I noticed a few commenters here rallied to his defense* and the martinets were slagged off.
          John Waters floated when we dunked him in the pond, can’t argue with that.
          The Joan Rivers thing was a bit odd though, it seems defending or criticising Israel in any way makes you something or other… what’s that about? She was a funny lady, RIP.

          *I made a reference to debasement of a knight, to put it into perspective, like.

        2. Pandora

          So they should censor photos of people in uniform just because they are figures of authority?

    Many an oul lad would sneak into a corner like this to count their money. He’s definitely not urinating.

  6. Steph Pinker

    You can clearly see he’s not urinating from his reflection, BS are worse for publishing it.

  7. munkifisht

    If he is caught short is it worse that the aul boy is forced to do this in a corner rather than have a public convenience for something we all need to do. That said, I don’t think he is, but good opportunity to highlight the disgusting lack of public toilets in our cities.

      The press protect the Garda Siochana. Editor of Indo was editor of the Garda Review.

      How do you go from editing what is essentially a trade magazine for cops to editing one of the biggest daily national newspapers? Strange one that. Does not bode well for the freedom of the press.
