TV6 reported about the spate of violent crimes in the last 24 hours including the death of a man, a teen assaulting a police officer and more all while the country is under a State of Emergency! Makes you wonder what will happen when the State of Emergency is supposed to be lifted in December this year - scary.
In a nation wide address the Hon. PM Kamla Persad-Bissessar announced that the curfew is no more with immediate effect but the State of Emergency remains under review. She did mention that the curfew can come back if they feel it is needed.
Comments: How is it that all these so called gang leaders being released? They let go Robocop Alexis whom police claimed was wanted for murder and other charges. What's going on?
Five murders since the curfew was lifted and now we need to guess if they won't bring it back again but that will be awful for business. Maybe we might see some kind of permanent curfew for certain areas that tend to be crime prone.
Comments: 236 alleged gang members arrested under the Anti-gang laws during the SOE and you know how many convicted or even stood trial? The answer: 0! What is the next thing to take place?
They arrest Robocop the other day, again. I wonder if this time they think they have sound evidence against him? I wondering though they can try him for the same case again?
Comments: What you all make of the alleged assassination attempt against Kamla Persad Bissessar and some of her cabinet members? Is this going to be another reason to keep the state of emergency indefinitely?
Today marks one year since the last State Of Emergency for Trinidad and Tobago was introduced. To mark this the following was reported on TV6 News;
-- Trade unions marked a silent protest outside the Hall of Justice using black cloth over their mouth with the word 'Censored"
-- Jack Warner says crime is on the way down and blamed the media for sensationalizing crime.
-- Gregory Aboud criticized the past 50 years of poor governance as the reason for a lack of certain fixes that the public needs such as crime, etc.
