Civil servant harassed for taking medicine to MCD rock gig.
The couple say that at the entrance to an REM concert in Balbriggan in June 2005, MCD security staff emptied McCarrickâ€™s bag of drinks and medication on the ground and said the couple would be arrested for drug dealing.
â€œThey said I was a dealer because my bag was full of prescription drugs,â€? said McCarrick. â€œThey accused my fiancée of planning to inject drugs with her insulin needle. Iâ€™ve never before been harassed and embarrassed in front of other people like this.â€?
McCarrick said the security staff ignored the coupleâ€™s civil service identification cards and doctorsâ€™ letters that explained their need for medication.
I heard about this story but didn’t know that these were boards.ie users. Do you know the usernames?
These people have a good case for libel and should talk to a lawyer
Nice to see the case getting publicity.
