Im from canada and to my way of thinking kiddnappings are a thing that can not be overdone because very few of them have a happy ending
That's true, in most countries they end killing the person collecting or not the money. In the specific situation of Trinidad and Tobago being such a small country is definetly the security failing 100% as well as the police and whoever is in charge of this. It's a shame that nothing is being done about it.
One thing that the Government is down playing is the fact that their was one kiddnapping (maybe more) that involved some policemen. This easily shows the state of affairs in this country.
LATEST: Two victims were released today, but they both had to pay ransom. One for $200,000 and the next one $15,000.
The UNC is not signing a bill to 'improve' the kiddnapping laws because then it would make it automatic for anyone accused of kiddnapping - not to get bail, it would also give up to 25 years in jail for anyone that negotiates with kiddnappers. So if your son or daughter is kiddnapped and you negotiate for their release, you will go to jail?
What are your thoughts?
Where is the BBC? Come back, because kiddnappings in Trinidad are so common place in Trinidad now that they used as 'common talk'. Today two women and a little boy (aged 6) in seperate incidents were kidnapped. You cannot even send your children to school in safety now.
Theres no doubt the cops have a hand it, especially the ones in marabella and sando cop shops. My advice to the few honest cops who are forced to accept a cut from those on the take, in order to keep their jobs, is to make absolutely sure they donate every cent to a reputable charity in the presence of a reputable witness and make sure a bonafide reciept is obtained, and then keep this confidential. This way they get to keep their jobs, avoid suspicion and keep a relatively clear conscions.

I thought you were going to say something like, 'unite together and standup to corruption', but in your suggestion you are actually helping the bad guys out.
