Thank god it wasn't me driving............

A Dublin criminal was assassinated last night whilst sitting in the front passenger seat of a Taxi in Dublin, the driver picked him and his friends up from outside a nightclub in the city.
I really hope the driver gets some counseling and is able to continue in his chosen job.

The story;

A notorious armed robber who sparked a prison security scare after calling a radio show from his cell has been shot dead.
Dublin criminal John Daly, 27, who sparked a major clampdown on the use of mobile phones in Irish jails after calling RTE's Liveline programme, was shot as he sat in a taxi with three other men in the north of the city. He was hit several times from point blank range.

Opposition politicians warned the murder may lead to an escalation in gangland crime. Gardai said a lone gunman carried out the killing at Cloonlara Drive, Finglas South. It is understood Daly, from the Cloonlara area, was singled out by the killer and hit up to five times. He was rushed to the Mater Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
