Conor McGregor has hit out at the Irish police for making him a ‘scapegoat’ over the recent riots in Dublin, Ireland.
Reports indicate that five people were stabbed outside a school in Dublin, three of which were children. Thereafter, riots broke out after suggestions that the perpetrator was a foreign national. In response, McGregor criticized the Irish leadership, in particular his reservations about the country’s immigration policies. It is claimed that over 30 people were arrested for the riots as shops and cars were destroyed. Meanwhile, members of the police allegedly had rocks thrown at them. Then, a series of tweets were posted by McGregor, who was vocal about his discontent.
Innocent children ruthlessly stabbed by a mentally deranged non-national in Dublin, Ireland today. Our chief of police had this to say on the riots in the aftermath. Drew, not good enough.

“There is grave danger among us in Ireland that should never be here in the first place, and there has been zero action done to support the public in any way, shape or form with this frightening fact. NOT GOOD ENOUGH. Make change or make way. Ireland for the victory. God bless those attacked today, we pray,” McGregor
I do not condone last nights riots. I do not condone any attacks on our first responders in their line of duty. I do not condone looting and the damaging of shops. Last nights scenes achieved nothing toward fixing the issues we face. I do understand frustrations however, and I do… https://t.co/FFx7d0ZROb

“There will be change in Ireland, mark my words. The change needed. In the last month, innocent children stabbed leaving school. Ashling Murphy murdered. Two Sligo men decapitated. This is NOT Ireland’s future! If they do not act soon with their plan of action to ensure Ireland’s safety, I will,” McGregor
But given that those tweets are now being investigated by the Irish police on the grounds that they may incite violence, McGregor had this to say.
Truth they don’t want to speak. Attempt to scapegoat me all you wish. If it makes you feel better, I will take it. The truth of the many failed policies of this government however, will never stop being the reason we have innocent children in hospital on life support after being… pic.twitter.com/I8P1mJgSLX
