Trinidad Gangs Take Over Neighbourhoods - Page 2

Name: Spence

Comments: Caribs78: Support is in the form of coming forward and giving evidence and information to the POLICE and testifying in court, to ensure that criminals pay for their crimes. Sure there is great risk in doing this, as the POLICE cannot protect an individual 24/7. But think of it, people who do not come forward in that manner are also targeted at random any way. The support to which I refer also takes the form of publicly commending POLICE OFFICERS when they perform with credit. I am convinced that on a daily basis more citizens have positive interactions with POLICE than those with negative interactions. This majority remain silent while others shout. When you really think about it, supporting the POLICE is really in our best interest. For the more successful they are the safer we become.

Neighbourhoods Take Gangs Trinidad

Some interesting yet frieghtening statistics have been published today in the Trinidad Express Newspaper quoting a UN report about gangs in Trinidad:

Attached Image QUOTE
An excerpt of the draft 2011 UNDP report which examines the nature and distribution of local gangs, obtained by the Sunday Express, pointed to evidence of some 95 gangs operating in Trinidad and Tobago, with a total membership of 1,269.
[..]

83 per cent of gang members are of African origin, 13 per cent East Indian and four per cent of other ethnic backgrounds. All of the identified gangs are male-dominated and a high 87 per cent are comprised of adults.

The majority of gangs, 86 per cent, have a group name, while 61 per cent refer to themselves as a gang, 26 per cent as a crew and 4.2 as a clip or unit.

"¢ A large proportion, 88 per cent, claim turf while 75 per cent defend their turf.

"¢ The vast majority, 85 per cent, do not have special symbols or identifying clothing; and almost without exception, illegal activity is accepted by all gang members.

Two-thirds of the gangs have from six to 50 members, while 95 per cent are made up of Trinidad and Tobago citizens.

"¢ The spatial distribution of crime in Trinidad and Tobago bears a striking similarity to the spatial distribution of gangs.
[..]

The majority of gang members were found to be young adults between the ages of 18 and 45.
[..]

Police data also show that gang members commit violent offences at three times the rate of people who are not in gangs. Ref. Source 1

Are all the gang members that are being released being monitored or are they just being thrown back into society waiting for a time when they continue their crimes.

TV6 News featured Carapo youth initiating a peace pact to stop killing each other, what do you think - will it work? I was surprised there was no community centre in the area.

Jack Warner is saying that if the gangs do not put down their guns that the fight will go to the very end. Do you think this is the right approach to deal with gangs in Trinidad - a sort of fighting fire with fire?

To deal with gangs we must:

A. Arrest those who do not wish to change and give them long jail sentences. Let them know the consequences for their choices by them experiencing harsh penalties for such. There are those who will not want to change and if so they must be made to face the consequences for such a choice they are willing to make.

B. Reform those who wish to change by providing alternatives to gang lifestyle. We have to offer them a better future. Those in gangs think either (1) they have a future in it or (2) they have no future in life and they just have to go along with the flow.

In conclusion it all boils down to if we can show these gangsters that there is a better way to profit in life other than being with gangs we stand a great chance of dealing the scourge of gang warfare in a really great way. B)

What I don't get is if the authorities know who these gang members are why haven't they been arrested, oh wait... That already happened and they were all let go. This is Trinidad and Tobago. rolleyes

The reason why gangsters have not been arrested is because the authorities are probably dealing with their need for evidence in order to do such. However with fear and intimidation playing a major role in the collection of evidence from witnesses it might be somewhat problematic at times to be able to prosecute a known gangster or known gangs.

Plus never think that there are no links between the gang members and the authorities. There most certainly are I believe. Corruption is not an impossible scenario in this land involving the authority systems of this country especially in regards to these systems being tied to the gangsters who are in this land.

Anyone who suggests that such cannot occur or has not occurred has their mind rooted in fantasy and not in real reality that actually faces this land. rolleyes
