Man who filmed Garda disrupting mass in Athlone finds Garda at end of his bed at 3:30am and his kids taken away

category national | crime and justice | news report author Monday May 03, 2021 21:12author by 1 of indy Report this post to the editors

Garda and State take vindictive action using the Mental Health Act

On Saturday night at 3:30am the man, Pat Sweeney, who filmed Garda breaking up a mass in a church in Athlone just one week ago, was woken by Garda at the end of his bed to find they were taking him to Longford Garda station there and then because they were "concerned" about his health. It turns out they were using powers under the Mental Health Act to imply he was not well and that his kids were somehow at risk. In the video / audio of the event, you can hear the Garda say in response to his question -"where are my kids" -that they are being taken into care by TUSLA who have farmed them out to someone else.

This is a new low for the government and represents a scandalous abuse of power to target a man who happened to expose their evil and criminal ways the previous week. Thankfully the video of this event has gone viral but not anywhere on mainstream media.
Garda break entry into bedroom of Pat Sweeney to inform him they are abducting his kids.

As the news broke last night there was outrage at the abuse by the government because make no mistake this little episode would have come down from the very top of the establishment. As of this evening, Pat Sweeney has still not got his kids back and is still in the Garda station while his pleas for some help are ignored while the Garda are busy playing pool. Here are some details as the report broke last night:

Gardai abduct the children of the man who filmed them disrupting mass in Athlone last week


Audio of Video taken by Pat Sweeney as the Garda raided his home on Sat night at 3:30am and took him away.

Original video taken by Pat Sweeney. Watch before it disappears. Audio above is from this video. https://twitter.com/i/status/1388948385860890630

"Just been contacted by Pat Sweeney, the man who videoed the Gardai in a church in Athlone last week that went viral. The Gardai have taken his two children from him last night at 3.30am. If you are near Longford please head to the Garda station to support him. Please share this".

They invoked the Mental Health act to claim he was unwell and under those powers his children have been taken away and put into care. And all of this happened at 3:30am on Sat night

This is the exact same technique used in Stalinlist Russia to claim dissidents were mentally ill and put away for years. Under the Mental Health Act in Ireland, Pat will loose all his rights

Update on the Pat Sweeney case whose children were removed from his care after the gardaí broke into his home at 3AM on a spurious claim that he was mentally ill.

There's a suggestion that Pat Sweeney had his children with him on the day that he video recorded himself challenging the gardaí who raided an Athlone church and consequently he is being considered a threat to his children for not abiding covid19 regulations.

If true, this is a very disturbing development. To quote the Irish Students Against Globalism (ISAG) on twitter: https://twitter.com/IrishAntifa/status/1389139190953267202

"The Irish state has made it clear with actions in Athlone that they will misuse legislation to confiscate children of political dissidents."

Every fear people had about the referendum on children has been entirely validated.

His children have now been disappeared into a black hole of foster care under the authority of TUSLA. The gardaí can't tell him where they are because they aren't told.

This case will go before a family law court, possibly tomorrow. The case will be heard in-camera. That means the public cannot attend court or report on what happened.

After the case, anyone who speaks about the case publicly (including the father of the missing children) will be found to be in contempt of the in-camera rule and they can be jailed or fined up to €50K. You might remember Angela Ray being jailed repeatedly for this reason.

This is how the state keeps people silenced.

Polish TV made a documentary https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hiuemxPgI4I about a Polish woman whose child was taken from her by TUSLA as it was impossible for her to tell her story in Ireland.

Unless Pat Sweeney has very deep pockets, he won't be able to afford a legal team that will be able to match TUSLA's. TUSLA will request an emergency care order and the chances of it being granted are almost 100% on condition that a parental capacity assessment and psychological report is conducted on Patrick.

The parental capacity assessment is designed in such a way that the parents fail.

Anna Kavanagh who has spent the last two years investigating the system and listening to parents whose children have been taken by TUSLA has not met a single parent who passed the assessment or psychological report.

Keep in mind, Patrick Sweeney hasn't slept in while searching for his children.

The process of getting your children returned is dragged out for years and years. In 2016, there was an investigation into why one child called Grace was left for 13 years in a foster home under the direction of TUSLA despite social workers being aware she was being sexually abused there. The investigation is still ongoing and it has cost €7 million so far.

If you manage to get a TD to raise your case in the Dáil, the Minister of Justice or Children will just reply that they can't comment on individual cases and it's an operational matter for TUSLA.

All of the government funding given to NGOs who work in the are of child welfare comes through TUSLA (because of course it does).

TUSLA was set up as a self-policing organisation by Fine Gael's Frances Fitzgerald.

You might remember when Maurice McCabe began whistleblowing on corruption in the gardaí (which would ultimately lead to the resignation of the Fine Gael Minister for Justice Alan Shatter) TUSLA opened a file on McCabe based on the lie that he sexually abused his children.

Anna Kavanagh is requesting people to bombard the inboxes of the the Ministers of Justice and children with a simple message that you are appalled at what happened to Patrick Sweeney over the weekend.

This is a matter of utmost seriousness and it's important to act fast.

Hope I'm commenting ok. Sorry if not, it's my first time here.

I saw the video of the man from Athlone whose children were taken from him as he was taken by the Gardai to a mental institution simply for challenging the Gaurds after they'd evicted worshippers from mass in church. I shared the vid on my Bitchute channel. Ireland is rapidly turning into a police state. People should be out protesting in the streets over this imo.

Seems like this article offers clarification on the background to Pat's disagreement with his seperated partner, in regard to children been allowed to continue attending their school in France 'V' the wearing of face coverings... 😷
