Here is a recorded conversation between some gardai (Irish police) who are having a good old laugh and a joke about the idea of raping a suspect in order to obtain her name and address.
The officers concerned had earlier been associated with the arrest of two Shell to Sea protesters in Mayo and had left a video recorder, taken from one of the women, switched on in the back of their squad car.
What, exactly, are they laughing at? What is funny? That's what gets me.
It is hard to imagine a gang of the most disadvantaged navvies deriving comparable mirth from such an ignorant, back-of-the-truck discussion - never mind our guardians of law and order supposedly going about their duty.
Big thanks to Ciancool for recording
