Let's hope moral ground in Garda Siochana rediscovered

Whistleblower Garda Sgt. Maurice McCabe

It seems at last that Maurice McCabe is finally on the road to vindication and the term whistleblower will finally be restored to its more ethical meaning rather than that of being classed as a rat; all a whistleblower wants to do is expose injustice and is against those who had sworn to uphold the law but chose to flout it instead.

I choose these words carefully about the road he is on for though he may be on it, he has yet to finish the journey.

On a positive note, he represents everything that good character calls for. I have talked to other members of the Garda Siochana who are like Maurice.
