Kidnappings in Trinidad A big report by the BBC. Do you think the recent documentary by the BBC about the crime rate and kidnappings in Trinidad was overdone or accurate? Are we becoming like Colombia? Does the government acknowledge that there is a serious problem?

Factor in the extreme rise in murder rate in 2008 and 2009 when "Community leaders" aka gang leaders (And very likely the bosses of kidnappers) began killing each other and their gang members. Perhaps those chosen to be kidnappers were picked off. Just speculating of course. BUT it is true that the Manning initiative gave lucrative Million dollar contracts to the "Community leaders" and it's possible that those funds replaced the ransome monies. 2007 was before 2009.

It hasn't been categorized as for "Ransom" yet but was noted because of how it was captured. You can read it in the Express: Keston Mahabir was kdnapped and the whole thing was caught on camera. See: Relatives coming to help search. Hopefully this will not turn out to be another murder victim.

Comments: They changed the statistics after the 155 year. Anyone who was abducted, but the ransom was not officially reported to the police, it is now categorized as an abduction, not a kidnapping. And we don't keep statistics on abductions, convenient eh.

Title: Kidnappings

Comments: In my opinion because there is so much crime here of which kidnappings is a big money spinner for a particular mastermind of this particular crime and has grown out of proportion since it started over four decades ago. The police has decided to remove it from their statistics to reflect a decrease in the overall increase in annual crimes here. We must remember that last year there were 98 kidnappings here but only 3 were reported in the police stats. That should clearly indicate what has been going on here. The police just haven't got the manpower to cope, and must now resort to methods to justify their existence.

Title: Kidnappings

Comments: Kidnappings are now part and parcel of the criminal money spinner here. It is no longer classified by the police as a reportable crime unless it is associated with a ransom. The only persons that could verify that it is ransom related are the police and the relatives of the victim, and without this information, the public will never know the truth.[..] In my opinion, the mastermind who organised almost all the kidnappings on this island in the past decade is still at it in a big way. It is just that kidnappings are now not reflected as a crime unless it could be proved that it was ransom related.The kidnappers only have to threaten the life of the victim if the relatives disclose the fact that a ransom was demanded.
