Anger as Garda who shot man who was simply trying to stab him escapes prosecution

There’s anger among gobshites everywhere this evening after it was announced that a Garda who shot a man who was trying to stab him won’t be prosecuted.

The DPP made the ruling following an investigation into the fatal shooting of George Nchenko in Dublin three and a half years ago.

Nchenko had just robbed a local shop at knife point and slashed the face of a member of staff when Gardai caught up with him outside his house in Clonee.

Despite being asked repeatedly to drop his weapon and being pepper sprayed, Nchenko lunged at Gardai and tried to stab them before the fatal shot was fired.

There were protests in parts of Dublin after the incident.

Black Lives Matter also issued a statement, saying ‘An innocent young black man was gunned down in cold blood by the Irish Police because of the colour of his skin and for no other reason. People who are asking what led to the incident are being racist. We call for all Police officers who were present to face the death penalty. Also the Irish Police Force must be discontinued immediately. We have spoken.”

Some people took to social media to express their outrage. Kimmy Blake from London posted “A black kid has just been machine gunned by 15 racist cops in Ireland. Take to the streets people. Smash the place up!”

Lewis Smith from Dublin wrote “Who brings a gun to a knife fight? A racist cop that’s who. Unfair fight man. Why didn’t the cop just stab him back?”

Suzi Si from Dublin said “I heard they broke into the house and kicked down his bedroom door and shot him while he was sleeping so don’t ever try to tell me Irish cops ain’t racist.”

Several men have been shot dead by Gardaí in recent years in controversial circumstances including John Carthy in Longford and Mark Hennessy in Dublin. However, none of them were black so nobody really gives a shit.
