Garda heavy-handedness isn’t confined to Donegal. As stories of harassment, corruption and cover-ups escalate, we report on the treatment suffered by one grieving family, whose son mysteriously died after a short time in police custody.
Imagine your brother or best friend leaving the house to go to the shop. He says a cheery ‘see ya’. Imagine, now, that these are the last words he ever says to you.
The next time you see him, he is lying unconscious on a hospital bed, with bruises and cuts all over his body. How did this happen? You find out that he was arrested and detained. That he was just two and half hours in Garda custody. So what exactly happened? You wait and hope and suffer. For three long, unendurable months, he lies there, in a coma. Then, your brother dies. Now, you know you will do anything to uncover the truth. But it won’t be easy. In fact, it will be so much harder than you ever dreamed. But you know there is no other option than to fight. You owe the brother that you loved that much at least..
