Title: Crime problems in Trinidad
Comments: Well said .However, with no death penalty and with the chance of spending the rest of your life with all comforts in prison (And things are getting better) ask the officials of the Civil Right movements. Committing murder may well be added the list of expected crimes from our ordinary citizens.
Death penalty is hardly a deterrent to crime and prison is not so luxurious, if it were then they would not be fighting to get out.
Title: Crime in T&T
Comments: There is only one way to halt the perpetual rampage of crime in Trinidad & Tobago, especially serious crimes like murders and corruption. Those in positions of authority and of official status who still have morals and compassion for their fellow men in this nation must find ways of bringing the big fish to justice. If these individuals are not stopped from generation crime on these islands there will never be any change to the present situation. Next year will be the same as this year where crime is concerned. An all out attempt(War) must be made and declared now to arrest charge and imprison these individuals. Decent politicians, policemen,lawyers and other good people of status of this nation are merely wasting their time in trying to get crime under control when the big fish is allowed to manipulate the present bad situation without any hindrance These evil men must not be allowed to consider themselves as untouchables or be treated as such, because of their wealth. The key to success in taking control and reducing crime here depends on the elimination of the well established so called respectable masterminds of crime and corruption on this island. Action must commence now must commence now. OUR decent politicians must stop the wool being pulled over their eyes by these rogues.
Title: Murder rate
Comments: Hello, Hello, Hello. With the number of murder recorded at 102 ,it looks like we are again heading for an annual figure of around 400. Can't help believing that we must have many serial killers about. Are we really that evil or barbaric?.
Title: Penalty for murder
Comments: We just have too many murderers running around in this nation who are now killing other citizens for fun. Some are of course high on drugs, others are just serial killers because they are in the first place never brought to justice .A good example is the Dana Seetahal investigation which is being sweep under the carpet by our obedient police and legal experts Without the death penalty many of these killers are quite prepared to spend the rest of their life in prison. They know that they would be properly fed, medically attended to and live a reasonably comfortable life. Our other major problem is the amount of guns and ammunition coming into the country and getting into the hands of hardened criminals. With corruption on the increase here the chances of stopping the trafficking in illegal weapons is at present mountain too high to climb without more vigilance and patrolling of our shores.
Title: crime in T&T
Comments: Hello there, I noticed the murder and kidnapping rates have remained stagnant for quite a few days now. I hope this is a good sign. Maybe some of the killers have read my previous comment and have suddenly stop the killings for the fun of it. We must not however forget they still have the guns, and the moody downgrade won't stop the habitual financial greedy but respected masterminds of corruption generating more serious crimes in this nation.
Title: Murder rate
Comments: Well if the murder figures are correct as published today it amounts to one murder per day so far. If this continues then we could expect making allowances for a continued monthly decline a fall of around 340 murders at the end of the year. This would be a great achievement indeed. Perhaps a couple of our serial killers have kicked the bucket ,imprisoned or gone abroad. It is rather strange that the galloping rate of this evil crime has stabilised so suddenly.
These bandits don't care about anyone. They taking little children to carry drugs and they beating up and killing the elderly in their own home. They just looking for easy prey.
