Homeless / Vagrants In Trinidad - Page 3

A vagrant in downtown POS rests on the side of the pavement with maggots eating away his body was featured on TV6 today. The maggots are so many that they crawl over the same pavement citizens pass everyday - what is being done about this? Will we see a TV6 update tomorrow about it? So much talk over the decades of ridding the streets of vagrants and putting them in hospitable locations where they can be treated have been talked about by so many political groups.

Because of that same report by TV 6 the government got involved, cleaned up the man and then took him to Mt. Hope. He has to go into surgery. Poor man, how many there are like this, don't just see about this one man see about them all!

The vagrant issue has been going on for decades. Each government claims to do something and yet you still see them out there in the streets. There needs to be tough law on this to prevent this and to get them proper care whether it be rehabilitation or mental therapy.

Title: Street dwellers accommodation

Comments: The government plan to open an assessing center and shelter for street dwellers in the heart of Port of Spain lack foresight. It is one thing showing compassion for these homeless citizens, however, it is another putting another nail in the coffin of the destruction of the nation. Such center and shelter need to be allocated away from the center of the commercial areas of Port of Spain. If this proposal is implemented we could end up with beggars and homeless citizens trampling the Fredrick street shopping and surrounding areas. What are visiting tourists going to think about their visit to Trinidad? Any shelter or rehab center to accommodate street dwellers should not be situated in any commercial area where the street dwellers will be free to congregate and probably get involved in vagrancy misdemeanors. As I have said before our politicians are lacking in foresight and really do not give much thought to many of their plans and political proposals.

George we're talking about your fellow citizens, brothers and sisters not some dogs on the road. Who cares what the tourists think (They already see us as primitive). I don't see the issue with the accommodation, I applaud the move.

Title: Street Dwellers

Comments: In my opinion, as I have said before, we must show compassion to our citizens who are down and out, and not confine them to some building which more or less represents a kennel for a pack of stray dogs. It is about time the government set aside funds to build and maintain a proper rehabilitation centre for almost all of these vagrants who are affected by drugs or some other personal affliction.
It is pointless having them hanging arounding the main commercial areas here. They will only resort to illegal acts such as petty crime,begging and all the other disgracful misdemeanours that are associated with such citizens all over the world.
It never use to be like this in the country. Something has caused the rapid escalation of such an internal problem in the last three decades, and again in my opinion the politicians are to be blamed for allowing growing poverty and neglect here despite all of our past and present wealth and having a small population.

Title: Vagrants

Comments: Yes, I agree, that it is now difficult to deal with the vagrant problems overnight. However, this problem did not suddenly present itself to the nation. The truth about this problem is that the police and our politicians turned a blind eye to the development of the homeless and vagrant problem here.
Now it was becoming noticeable and is growing at an alarming rate they are all offering lip service and still not doing what is needed to fix the problem.
The attitude and lack of immediate nipping internal problems in the bud by our politicians and those in authority here is typical. They never treat many of our serious problems immediately, but linger with the hope that they may just go away. They are lacking in foresight and use neglect and a non care approach to many ofour now established woes.
