So RAG Week went ahead and once again the student population of Galway showed what ugly human beings they can be. I realize I am generalizing but honestly you good students can’t stand by these brats, take offence if you want by me using the word students but since it was a student event complete with posters on the fuckin University campus advertising events then I’m going to use that word freely, if you want to piss and moan about how I use it go ahead. I think your energy would be better aimed towards your colleagues who are casting a dark shadow over all of you.
The videos posted are disturbing some of the comments calling these people legends is even more disturbing. It’s time to put the foot down. People made the argument that if the students left Galway would be fucked. I’d argue that if the workers left, Galway would be even more fucked. So what does that logic mean? Should there just be anarchy throughout all social divides? As a worker can Steve go to the University campus and shoot a flare into a crowded place? Would he be called a legend by anyone?
So how do you fix this situation? Easy. Get the colleges throughout the country to enforce their code of conduct which already exists. Now, we are not talking about a small minority which people had suggested on the previous post. We are talking about a very large, vocal minority. The only way to handle this is to do what the police in England do with football hooligans (Which seems extra relevant considering the English accents the people in who’s the sexy Garda put on chanting..I don’t get that, like people who chant United in an English accent in Ireland but that’s a rant for another day…sheeple). Arrest people retrospectively, use the video to make arrests, anybody seen jumping around and cheering while this shit was happening should be done for disturbing the peace, the people standing on tables or lighting flares etc. Should be charged with more. Inciting a riot would be a good one to use. Drunk and disorderly. And then what? These people have failed to represent their colleges in a suitable manner and so they should be suspended, they should also have their grant payments stopped.
I just blogged my brains out,
