Trinidad & Tobago's Crime Problem - Page 18
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.
