In 2017, Freeman, who had more than 60 convictions, was described by a judge as a “menace to society” while being jailed for his role in an aggravated burglary of a 77-year-old woman at her home in Co Wicklow.

Masked men threatened her and robbed her wedding ring at 2am, leaving the woman was so terrified that she never returned to her home.

I’m glad this asshole got what he deserved in the end, but why do we let people like him continue in his chosen lifestyle


If they hadn’t wiped themselves out, I get no sense that these guys were going to be taken out of circulation any time soon.


Interesting that they were burnt alive though

Because it almost happened to Karl Freeman’s brother, Dean.


Taylor had been given a 40-year driving ban. In all, he had 120 convictions, including 11 for dangerous driving. In court in March 2019, his barrister pleaded leniency, saying Taylor “recognised that it was time to change his life”.


There’s a suspicious lack of detail about this knifing in the neck attack (beheading? or “kitchen knife”?) Mac Uilliam Road is a sociological experiment where SDCC place Travellers and Africans side by side. You’d have to think there’s at least one minority involved in this one.


Well…it looks like you’re correct in your assumption. It appears the deceased is of African origin. No mention of the nationality of the suspect who was arrested in Dundalk:

From the Irish Times:

The deceased was named locally as Ademola Giwa, a fitness coach and personal trainer.

A man in his 50s was also injured in the row, which happened at around 7.15pm, and was taken to hospital for treatment.

The chief suspect for the stabbing, a man in his 20s, had fled the scene when gardaí arrived minutes after the attack.


From the Independent

It is understood Mr Giwa was being investigated as part of a garda investigation into money laundering and the recruitment of money mules by a locally based criminal organisation, but he had not yet been questioned.
“Gardaí were looking at recent information they had received in relation to this, but investigations were at a very early stage,” a source said.
A former football manager who worked with Mr Giwa described him as an “absolute gentleman” who was “big into his fitness”.

“He had stopped playing football but we were still in contact on Instagram.
“He was an absolute gentleman, to be honest, and I never heard a bad word said about him.
“I know a lot of people from the Tallaght area, and he wasn’t mixed up with any gangs or anything.
“He was just a really nice guy.”

Absolute Gentleman/Suspected Money Launder
Was Mixed Up with a Gang per Gardai/Wasn’t per ex football manager.

How much does your ex football manager who follows you on Instagram really know about you ?
It’s the Law of Pamela Izevbekhai in action again


Silence now makes sense. All knew from the start this was a Gorm on Gorm crime.

A MAN has been remanded in custody after he was charged with murder following the fatal stabbing of Ademola Giwa in Tallaght, Dublin on Tuesday.
John Titiloye, 26, who replied “not guilty” when charged, appeared at Dublin District Court this morning

We need Hazel Chu to get on the phone to Sadiq Khan and ask him how London deals with knife crime

The Irish franchise of BLM have been very quiet


He has 36 previous convictions and is currently serving a sentence of two years with the final six months suspended for an offence of violent disorder.

36 convictions at 19 is some solid numbers, this is a man who will do serious damage in the years ahead, and at the same time generate plenty of money for the legal industry


Yep, he will be a serious earner for the industry so long as some rogue judge doesn’t go daft and lock him away.
