Comments: Obviously People of T&T got used to crime. Nobody is seeing a solution to stop the high murder rate. Actually, People get very defensive when foreigners talk about crime in T&T. The answer is often there is crime worldwide and as you are from Germany you should know there is plenty nazi crime in Germany. Yes, crime in T&T will be played down by their own citizens because they feel powerless to do anything about it. However, to those who believe there is plenty crime in Germany I always tell them to study statistics instead of looking for excuses. In Germany and most European countries the murder rate is about 1 per 100,000 per annum whilst it is about 35 per 100 000 citizens in T&T. Yes, this also includes the nasty Nazi crimes of Germany, which are a favourite Topic in Jewish newspapers.
Title: Why set up useless probes and investigations
Comments: Why do the police and government commit themselves to setting up probes and investigations into corruption committed by either rich, politicians or other important citizens of this nation when the outcome usually end up the same without anyone really paying ant severe retribution. Those accused of this criminal offense are always offering some cock and bull stories which is usually supported by others involved in the very same act. It is about time those in the corridors of power and the police stop wasting public money and creating unnecessary public anxiety .Many of these probes and investigations are quietly sweep under the carpet and the results of those that cannot be hidden end up with the alleged culprits walking free .or receiving just a simple slap on their wrist.

Title: Crime in Trinidad/Tobago
Comments: It is very immature for George and Hans to make the above comments regarding the above subject. While it is easy to point fingers at others for the cause of the committed crimes or compare other Nations with us, we are forgetting the fundamental principles- which - unfortunately we have abdicated and have put into the hands of 'authorities.' What about personal accountability and responsibility? What about respecting each other? What about living within one's means? What about a loving, caring home environment? What about having a spiritual life with values to reflect love, compassion? We have walked away from the basic things that brought us contentment, peace and harmony and have bought into the destructive values of blaming others, hating others, envying others. Like I said a few years back. It will take 2 generations to correct our present- and this is not likely to happen. We have drank the poison cups of liberalism, political correctness.
