DPP on trial.

Outraged parents have launched a campaign to bring to trial a cop who is alleged to have preyed on their children.

The garda resigned from the force after offering to drop minor charges against a teenager in return for sex, but no charges have ever been brought against him.

The Director of Public Prosecutions decided there is not enough evidence to bring the garda to trial.

That is not good enough. The lives of his alleged child victims and their families have been destroyed.

Now they must live with the added trauma and fear of having the alleged paedophile in their midst.

It is not the first time the DPP's office has outraged sex victims by deciding not to prosecute.

The very least these children and their families deserve is to have their cases heard in court.
