Do we praise the authorities of Dochas Centre prison in Ireland too much?

We have recently met with the statement, that we praise the prison officers of Dochas Centre in Ireland too much.
Do we really?
Because of our “praise” some people outside the prison are not so determined to help Martha.
What for?
If she’s doing so well?

Is Martha doing well?
In no prison, even in the best one, no one can be doing well.
It’s not a desirable place to be.
Everyone who found themselves there wants to get out as fast as possible.

Do we praise the officers of Dochas Centre prison too much?
Were writing the truth.
Of course we don’t write about everything.
Some behavior of few officers we find especially shocking.
We didn’t always write about this. And when we did, it was rather toned down and it didn’t show our full indignation. Indignation about boorish behavior of these people towards Martha.
(Part of the family found some posts as to harsh. That’s where the discrepancies between sites “helpformartha.org” and the facebook fanpage “Help for Martha” come from.)
On the other hand, there are people in Dochas Centre prison, we would like to thank very much. But we don’t write about it either.
Maybe there will be time for this, when Martha will be free.
We’re very grateful already.

We also try not to write about other women serving sentences.
These sites are relations about Martha’s tragedy, not about life of women in Dochas Centre.
The women, who were unlucky to find themselves in this place, don’t want to flaunt with this.
We respect that.

We have to “balance” every word on our sites, but also we have to avoid weakening the message with “mawkish” posts.
The main difference between us and the Irish media is that we write the TRUTH and we don’t build up a sensation.
We don’t want to shock with posts or “bloated” titles.
If someone or something deserves praise, we will do it.
If it deserves condemning, we will also describe this while watching to not to harm Martha.

The officers of Dochas Centre prison in Ireland are not a party to the dispute.
Discrimination towards Martha, which takes place in this prison, will not be a main argument for the ECHR, but only an additional background.
Just like everywhere, among the officers there happen to be people exceptionally good, but also exceptionally mean.
It is also undisputable that the conditions in Dochas Centre prison are very good. Different people responsible for individual departments and the proper functioning of the prison perform very well.

This doesn’t mean that Martha should stay in this place.
In a few days 2 years will pass.
2 years of waiting for JUSTICE IN IRELAND.
How much longer?
We aske for help very much.
