Trinidad & Tobago's Crime Problem - Page 18

Name: George

Comments: I do not agree with the comments of the leader of the government opposition when she says that Prime Minister is interfering with the police system. The police like so many other organizations and officials associated with our politics or supervision and control of the nation have now become a law unto themselves and need to be drawn back in line with what is expected within a democracy.Whether the Prime Minister is the right person to put things back in order is questionable. At present, there appears to be a malicious and spiteful tit for tat battle going on between politicians on both sides of the fence at the expense of our political progress and our people. The main problem here is that we appear to have a huge number of semi-educated citizens who have inherited what appears to be a primitive and savage instinctive attitude which accounts for so many murders and brutal violence within our society that it is now becoming very difficult for governments of any color to govern this nation is a proper democratic manner. The present system of education needs an urgent overhaul and must include lessons in personal relationship, patriotism, and civic responsibilities. The results of the present education system reflect its results in a bad way, by the lack of consideration for others, personal behavior, financial greed, and the attitudes of our supposedly respected and important politicians and officials of this nation. Moreover, the lack of not having the right and proper education has led to the bad leadership of this nation since our independence.which is demonstrated by the comments of the opposition leader with regards to police/political matter and the Prime Ministers alleged intervention.

Title: Crime rate linked to poverty

Comments: It would appear that all politicians and the affluent citizens here have failed, and are still failing, to comprehend that retaining poverty, and making citizens poorer especially in the deprived areas of this nation is the cause of our high crime rate. The districts contributing to the highest crime rates are the ones that are neglected and deprived of modern living conditions and amenities including good educational facilities.Leaving them in a form of primitiveness contributes to the production of more criminals If the trillions of dollars wasted or have disappeared from the profits of our oil and gas resources since our independence were equally divided in the development of all districts of the nation, then this nation by now should now have a very low crime rate as the spreading our wealth equally would have enhance the living condition in villages such as Laventille. With better educational facilities such districts would have produced more responsible and educated citizens and not citizens who have to resort to crime to make two ends meet because of the failure of politicians to give them the required financial support needed to enhance the environment quality of their districts, and their living standards and conditions. The cause for our perpetual high crime rate, rest squarely on the shoulders of our politicians especially those of the political party who has ruled the roost for long periods for many decades since our independence. The crime scenario and crime rate will become even higher and more widespread within many deprived villages of this island unless more money is spent in the prevention of galloping poverty .
