Hangings In Trinidad & Tobago

Comments: With respect to the death penalty and executions for the crime of murder. I see that Terry Edwards of Texas USA was executed for the killing of two employees whilst carrying out a robbery at a restaurant.So you see, sensible people are still enforcing the death penalty instead of accommodating killers in comfort who have forfeited their freedom by committing murder. Texas is going to save a lot of money by not offering accommodation, medical care, welfare, and personal security to another worthless human being. We here should follow such example by restoring the death penalty not only to get the permanent rid of our killers but to stem the general flow of other serious crimes generated by the galloping rate of murders here.What are our politicians waiting for? Perhaps another record of the annual murder rate eh.

Rather off topic, but...
Politicians should remember the biblical quote Matthew 5.38 'an eye for an eye' and .'a tooth or a tooth' and stop their attitude of being holier than thou.

Comments: If our politicians are honest and are true representatives of our citizens, then the should have the moral courage to restore the death penalty without any further delay.Yes, right now.Immediately. They must carry out the wishes of the majority of our people NOW. If they continue to delay the process of the commencement of hangings here, this will then continue to allow the killers and our hardened criminals to retain the upper- hand, and will only lead to further and unrepairable damage to our society. These killers must be stopped in their tracks NOW. Those remaining honest and uncorrupt citizens with morals and compassion must now put excessive pressure on those in the corridors of power to regain control,by stemming the galloping rate of the slaughter of many of our innocent citizens by a brigade of loose mad killers on this island, which is now seen by outsiders as a haven for criminals,with no effective police or justice system.To any potential investor, it would now appear as a killing field for loose murderers which as I have said before will in the end, affect the economy of this nation.

Title: Restoration of the death penalty

Comments: Reading the latest news this morning especially the article concerning the restoration of the death penalty by the AG in which he says that the hands of our politicians are tied, which all amounts to us having politicians with double standards. The impression given is that those senior politicians in power here, are using every trick in the book to wrangle their way out of their responsibility of reinstating the death penalty in order to satisfy the expectations of their overseas masters. They just don't seem able to unhinged themselves from that old master-slave relationship. They must face the fact that we are now an independent nation and our allegiance to our former masters are a thing of the past. Politicians cannot continue to implement or support suggestions or ideas of their former colonial masters, as a matter of protocol obedience, when it is quite clear that it is of no help in solving our internal crime problems. This is why this matter is being deliberately delayed and it now looks very much like the idea is going to be thrown through the window in order to satisfy those in the Privy Council and the human rights organization. The long and short of it is, that the lives of our local citizens in the eyes of our elected representatives here are less important than the rules and regulations of both the Privy Council and the human rights organization. Our politicians must act morally and show compassion and comply with the wishes of the majority of our citizens if they want to remain in the corridors of power here. They must at least make every worthwhile attempt to try to make this nation a safer place for our citizens.

Title: Restoration of the death penalty

Comments: Keeping an opened eye on the arguments taking place here with regards to the restoration of the death penalty I have to ask the question of how on earth did the president of TTMA Mr Rolph Balgobin come to the conclusion that the death penalty won't work here?. It was the main successful instrument that was used here in the colonial days and is still used in some countries of the world where it has proven a well tried and tested deterrent. It worked very well here then and has in no way lost its potential to stem the flow of murders anywhere in the world. The current system of retribution here of imprisoning killers for life has been in play here since the latter half of 1999 and all we have to show for it is an annual increase in the rate of murders.At present, that rate stands at 342 per year since 1999. Citizens of responsibility here should gather the true facts before they make wild statements which have no convincing structure of the truth. They must substantiate their argument by facing reality.

Comments: So there we are, the tally of local murders rising at uncontrollable rate, and our politicians are still playing at politics. They do not seem to understand the urgent need to restore the death penalty here, and cannot explain in detail why they cannot or would not do so. Why are they delaying the decision to restore the death penalty and commence the hanging of those already convicted killers?. This will immediately stem the flow of the murders and discourage much of the lawlessness generated and associated by the failure of our politicians to stem the flow of murders in this nation. They can no longer allow the rulings of the Privy Council or the Civil Rights organization to dictate to them how to administer the legal aspects of this independent nation when to do so is causing the unnecessary lives of our citizens and creating long lasting damage to the reputation of our nation.Not only that, the majority of our citizens are now demanding that the death penalty be reinstated. The Civil Rights movement in particular has made an abundance of errors and misjudgements were harden criminals are concerned which they have so far failed to correct. They must be held responsible for their actions which is causing the increase in serious crimes all over the world. They have encouraged crime to flourish by introducing rules as regulations in the defense of killers and hardened criminals. The implementation of these rules and regulations have also made lawyers millionaires by criminals hiring these lawyers to defend them using the legal protocol of the Civil Right movement to prevent the criminals from receiving their due and rightful retribution. As for the tie to the Privy Council I am beginning to wonder whether there is some financial link between the government administration and the Privy Council where the government have to pay for their advice and services. Knowing the widespread involvement in financial corruption here, could there be some ongoing financial gain by way of 'kick backs' to officials here by retaining and using the Privy Council as our legal advisers?. It has been recently disclosed that the encouragement of local crime has become a money spinner for many officials on this island.Perhaps the politicians could explain to our citizens what is causing the delay in restoring the death penalty .
