Michael Carty: Shatter's policing folly is leading to real fear and a new vigilantism

I AM in full agreement with the views of Justice Minister Alan Shatter when he says that the issue of resources did not contribute in any way to the appalling murder of Det Garda Adrian Donohoe.

But I disagree with him in relation to the closures of garda stations and the implementation of the new 'smart' policing model.

Disregarding public opinion and the opinion of experienced frontline gardai, it appears to be full steam ahead, regardless of the outcome.
