AGSI Concerned At Abuse Targeted At Garda During Covid-19 Checkpoint In Dublin

The Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors is to write to the Garda Commissioner after verbal abuse was allegedly directed towards a member at a Covid-19 checkpoint in Dublin yesterday.

The AGSI has strongly condemned what it describes as the "abuse and vitriol" faced by one of its members at a Covid-19 checkpoint in the capital.
It says a video posed on social media, which has had over 122,000 views, shows an officer being subjected to "abuse and threats".
The associations General Secretary Antoinette Cunningham described it as totally unacceptable, saying it crossed the line of acceptable questioning of Gardai's role in the public health crisis.
She says she'll be writing to Commissioner Harris to express the groups deep concern on the matter.
