Title: Heading into the Abyss

Comments: The impression given here by those governing this nation and those in positions of authority is that they are all bunkers. My suggestion a few months ago that the government should start building prisons and an asylum to house themselves still stands. Here were have an important public figure suggesting that school children be given condoms,and that this will deter them from having sex in schools. Then we have the Acting Commissioner of police calling on citizens to start praying in order to solve our crime problem. Then we have the most notorious criminal on this island showing no signs of gratification from the politicians for sparing his life after attempting a coup in1990 but now suing the government for millions. He was also allowed without any hindrance to form and lead a so-called Muslim movement which has now producing terrorists by the dozens and is still leading a movement that remains a threat to our democracy. In addition to this, we have a world renowned mastermind of corrupting running around free on this island who is wanted by the FBI to answer charges on alleged corruption whilst serving in an important position in FIFA, which he denies but won't face a court to prove his innocence. Most damaging of all we are now heading the list of murders worldwide,have a police force which is disliked and not trusted by our citizens. And a obviously corrupt justice system. Yes and with all these adverse occurrences on this piece of land measuring 60x 40 miles with a population of 1.4 million with elected representatives calling themselves politicians but doing absolutely nothing to stem the flow of murders, serious crimes, kidnappings, and widespread galloping lawlessness. Looks to me like the country is operating on the lines of the Mafia type administration, and are certainly heading head first into the abyss eh.

Title: Crime in Trinidad

Comments: It is so very easy to point fingers at others and blame others for one's failures. Granted, there needs to be in place some structures around us to promote a morally progressive society. However, a large percentage of our views, values, beliefs, references come from our immediate surrounding. (Our home, our family, our relatives, our friends). In order to start reversing this downward trend on which we have embarked, each of us need to re- access what we want from life, what we want for our children, what we expect from our leaders, our clergy, our neighbours.
The basic principles of respect, love, contentment, peace, harmony, sharing, kindness- they have been replaced when we allowed ourselves to be lured into a highly competitive and selfish world.
The 'genie' is now outside the bottle. Unless we need to do some soul searching and stop pointing fingers. We have been pointing fingers and expecting others to do the 'lifting' for us. Perhaps we need to start 'lifting' our own load.

Title: Crime in T &T

Comments: Whilst I agree with most of what Mr Aston has said, he has apparently failed the understand that the good starting point of morals,self discipline, respect for the police,politicians and many in positions of authority here as a guide to our children or even those parents who were born after our independence have been eroded by the bad examples set by most of those who has and are still governing this nation.How on earth will we ever get back to some form of normally God knows.with such eradication of old tried and tested established guidelines.
The finger has to be pointed to some one or group of responsible citizens for our present internal predicament. This does not only relate to our crime scenario, in includes the attitudes to personal greed for wealth,general lawlessness,corruption, poverty, disrespect for the elderly,the police and the growing belief by our younger generation that crime pays here.
The long and short of it is that our mentors, elected representatives and those holding responsible official position here are quite prepared to sit back,offer meaningless lip service, but do nothing constructive or worthwhile to improve the situation.
They are quite prepared to take the easy way out despite the fact it will make matters worse. In fact some of their ideas of fixing what is wrong seems to me most bazaar,and could be considered as crazy and taking a backward step.. For instance the suggestion of handing out condoms to school children and offering prayer to God to resolve our crime situation together with the now embedded and accepted idea and habit of most of our senior politicians who feather their nest, by milking the Treasury funds.

Title: A culture of crime

Comments: With reference to the letter entitled 'What went wrong with those 'boy' schools' in the Express today especially this comment within its contents.

Attached Image QUOTE
'The sight that Prof Lewis notes of black boys being loaded into security vans heading out from the various courts does not bring non-blacks any happiness. What it does is create a mistrust of black youth and a sense of insecurity.' Source 6u


Now are the local authorities sure, that there is sort of school for criminals operating somewhere in the bushes up country?. Teaching them the techniques of how to become hardened criminals together of how to kill their fellow citizens. The nation seems to be breeding so many black violence killers and criminals here, it is becoming alarming and unbelievable.Some of these criminals must be crazy reading that one boy was shot 37 times. Could this killing be the hobby of the killer, and he was engaged in target practicing? What kind of society is this ? Everyone here is now living in fear of their lives. Since our independence and under the governance of our local politicians, the nation has certainly turned into one with a culture of crime. Well the country has become a haven for criminals which encourages more and more experienced criminals, with some coming from all parts of the world to reside here.This is now reflected in the increase in the population which supports a high ratio of black immigrants. The sad thing about it all is that those in authority are still offering lip service, doing nothing meaningful about fixing our crime problems especially with regards to he daily slaughter of our innocent citizens here. They are perpetually trying their hardest to pull the wool over the eyes of the ordinary citizens by being economical with the truth.in making useless attempts to quell their anxieties.

Title: Action not prayers needed

Comments: It would now appear that the women too here are now being advised to jump on the religious bandwagon in view of the following contents of a report in the Express today .

Attached Image QUOTE
'Pray for divine intervention in Trinidad and Tobago. This was the call of lady vice-chair of the People's National Movement's (PNM) Women's League Camille Robinson-Regis, as she spoke at a prayer and worship session at Balisier House, Port of Spain, yesterday'.
Citizens here are not at all being realistic. As I have said before the religious sector of our nation have been praying for decades, hoping that our internal problems here will either go away or get better.However as the records of past and present events will show things have got very bad here since our independence, and the situation is worsening every day. It is now evident that the politicians and the security services including the police CANNOT stop the flow of serious crimes here and the daily rate of murders and kidnappings and the galloping rate of general lawlessness on this island..without taking the necessary and appropriate action. They may be able to cover up other incidents such as kidnappings by not reporting this money making and evil crime in an attempt to fool outsiders and some of our vulnerable citizens that things in this field are not as bad as they used to be. Citizens must bear in mi the too,that because there is so much deliberate deceit, evil and lack of action by those in authority on this island God might have turned his back on the nation,that is why despite of all the prayers being said there is no results at all. Unless our politicians come to their senses and do what is right, for instance like restoring the death penalty and introducing other draconian measures to halt the rate of murders, serious crime and the spiraling of lawlessness here the situation will remain the same as it was yesterday, today and tomorrow in the future. We need ACTION not political lip service or prayers. Our situation is real. It is not a dream to be forgotten.Innocent citizens are being slaughtered every day here. Please wake up to reality.

Title: Time for a state of emergency?

Comments: I can honestly say that I have never seen so much reporting of so many murders, violent crimes and other serious crime within one month as is seen on this island or any where else except of course where wars are being fought. The country could be classified as a war zone with a wide sector of killing fields. Something drastically must be done now to halt this wild spree of raving criminal lunatics on this island. Surely it is time to call a State of Emergency and put severe restriction on movements of our citizens. Things just can't go on like this .Where are all our politicians have they joined Apodoca and are fast asleep?. Here are a few lines that may make those of status and responsibility here think about what is really happening here. I see no hope For the future of this land For money is the quest For all of our goals One man is worth millions While another man starves Our fate is no longer in our hands Our destiny is no longer ours It's too late to turn back From this economic slavery It's the end of our paradise Thanks to our love of money.

Title: CRIME & OTHER PROBLEMS HERE

Comments: Our politicians need to grow up and take responsibilities for this nation and its citizens.They must stop acting as spoil children and stop the deliberate malice and spitefulness demonstrated when they try to point their fingers at the failures of one side or the other. They should combine their knowledge and capabilities in trying to resolve our problems and not try to make matters worse. Surely our elected representatives must see that their past political endeavors have so far failed to bring about a happier and more secure nation, Our politicians have for over the last fifty years really failed to enhance the quality of life here for the ordinary citizens. Generally speaking things have become so bad here now,that we have an increase in poverty, more unemployment, more murders and serious crimes and growing widespread general lawlessness through the country. The problem now is that no one of status or in a position of authority can do anything to stop the spiral of all these adverse features of our nation. We haven't even got a crime plan, and the police needs much more manpower and training in order fight and detect crime here.It would now appear that they are out numbered by criminals. At the moment there is a crying need for outside help, however because of pigheadedness, our politicians have so far failed to seek the assistance they need from outside resources.They have utilized all known avenues but have now run out of ideas and are beginning to tread on methods unknown and have no certainty of success. At present those in the corridors of power are struggling to keep crime under control and manage the economy. There are now only two alternatives left for the PNM .The first is to seek outside help now where ever it is needed .The second is to call a general election and pass the problems on to another political party. They may have some solution to our problems or may see the desire to ask for outside help and do so. The writing is now clearly on the wall something has to be done. Politicians here cannot just keep holding onto power drawing large salaries and doing nothing to resolve our situation. They just cannot standby and watch the growing trend of rising serious crimes,lawlessness and a fading economy and do nothing beneficial about it.This attitude will only lead to the prolong of the present serious problems for this nation and its people.

Comments: The country is now bordering on a 'state of complete mayhem.' I am not sure if those in power, authority or any leadership roles have any true desire to putting a stop to this. It appears- after reading and experiencing some interactions with the local law enforcement teams- they too are either not willing or afraid to get involved. Part of this reluctance can be attributed to intimidation from senior members, collusion or direct involvement.
So what are possible solutions? - Perhaps neighbourhoods forming their own 'police-watch, elders in each community coming together and conduct short sessions within the community centres about our heritage and past values, television stations provide some time to talk about the current situation and the future of the country if the situation remains unchecked. Policemen become more open and approachable. Hangings, politicians, laws, revenges- they have all been tried and failed. We need to go back to grass- roots- in order to create positive change.
