A “senseless” death
Local Councillor, Niall Ring called this the woman’s death, “senseless”.
Ring also said, “This tragic news again brings into focus the necessity and indeed obligation on us all to tackle this problem”.
Niall Ring spoke recently on the knife crimes that have been occurring in Dublin recently. He urged the entire community to come together to tackle this problem.
Ring also said, “Overall, we cannot and will not accept a situation where knife crime is the norm. All stakeholders must come together and stamp this out”.
He also urged Gardaí, politicians, activists and the community to work together too. They need to “look at the issues raised and come up with solutions”.
Councillor Ring added, “The Gardai must also be fully resourced to ensure that they can effectively use the specific provisions regarding knife crime powers envisaged in the Firearms and Offensive Weapons (Amendment) Bill which needs to be enacted now”.
He also stated that he was writing to Justice Minister, Helen McEntee to enforce a legislation bringing tougher prison sentences for knife crime. ”I am writing to Minister McEntee asking her to get this legislation, which doubles the sentence for carrying a knife with intent to harm, from five to 10 years”. Adding, “This Bill has been gathering dust for nearly two years”.
