Trinidad & Tobago's Crime Problem - Page 4
Title: Crime stats
Comments: According to Chief Justice Ivor Archie we have 514 murders awaiting trial in our prisons. Ok, Let us look at the possible true state of the situation here. Between 2002 and the end of 2009 during the PNM reign we had according to the police stats 2868 murders. At the end of 2010 we had another 485 murders this was followed during the reign of the PP by another 1835 murders making a grand total from 2002 to 7th September 2015 4703 murders. Now lets assume that each murderer committed 2 murders in that period that would mean there were around 2,351 murderers on this island. During the whole of that period. Now subtract the 514 murderers awaiting trial that leaves 1835 murderers unaccounted for so far. However, we must deduct those convicted murderers imprisoned ,which is estimated at around 200.This figure does not include those murderers who may have died since being sentenced. (The estimated figure of 200 is a while guess, as there are no figures available on the net on in the police stats to show this at present). Well I can't find any. Now take this 200 away from 1835. On completing the calculation this would mean we probably have on the loose around 1635 or MORE murderers on this island bearing in mind in my calculation I ALLOWED a ratio of 2 murders per killer. This reflects the hidden treat to the citizens living on this island something the Chief justice, the police and the citizens should comprehend. ANY COMMENTS?
