There is an article in today's paper about a garda who was awarded €250k because of an incident where a shotgun was pointed at him while tackling an armed criminal. https://www.independent.ie/irish-ne...g-armed-criminal-awarded-250000-37123280.html Back in the day when I worked in a Financial Institution I was regularly robbed at gunpoint. Over a period of a number of years it happened about 9 times. (Sometimes it was a knife rather than a gun used). I remember the last time it happened I complained to the CEO of the company about the number and frequency of robberies that I had to endure. He response to me was "it goes with the territory". I still get nightmares about these robberies. Is there a difference between what the guard went through and what I went through?
