Every time something small happen they quick to say state of emergency. Like the population don't know what calling a state of emergency really means. I feel hot spot areas should have more permanent posts for the police.
Title: State of Emercency
Comments: Calling a State of emergency just won't work on this island because there is too much corruption. It is a chance for bent lawyers to rub their palms getting prepared to enhance their bank balances. This is a small country and the police hierarchy are well aware of who is who when it come to criminality .With the aid of the military the police should be able to take the appropriate action before any serious event occur that made lead to unrest. Having said that ,the presence of having an armed police force since independence has proven a waste of time. When police men just carried a baton we had little crime on this island. Some bright spark in the PNM movement for reason unknown decided to arm the police at a time when the murder rate was one or two a year with very little serious crime 'Beggars Belief'.
Title: Time to call a SOE
Comments: With six murders reported at approximately 11.15am today as having taken place last night, and there are probably more not discovered or reported as yet, making the annual rate of murders over the 460 mark, why hasn't the government intervened and called a State of emergency right now in order to get our policemen and soldiers on the streets to protect the public?. What on earth are they waiting for?.More killings?. Let us hope that quick action is taken and an emergency session of parliament is also called with the view of reinstating the death penalty immediately. Sooner than later citizens will be left with no choice other than rising up against the government by taking things into their own hands to protect themselves, their families and property.The politicians should realize that they cannot then, rely on the police or the military to protect them from the actions and will of the people.
Comments: Trinidad needs more helicopters with infrared heat detectors to be deployed immediately after a reported major crime. What happened to the air balloon [thing]? Just record and film the hot spots 24/7. Constant monitoring will deter [those] boys.
Comments: Londonboy helicopters? Air balloons? We spent so much money already and none of those things worked because the police is unable to solve any murder or crime. How is it that even possible?!
Comments: There are really no more places here on this island that can be categorised as a hot spot. We must face the facts and reality the whole island should now be considered as a giant criminal hot -spot, in other words, a haven for criminals where crime pays and where murders and acute lawlessness are now widespread through this island which is now out of the control of our law enforcement officers.The local murderers and hardened criminals are now in charge.They rule the roost.
Title: Living in a make belief world
Comments: Despite the continuance of the every day murders of our innocent citizens nothing is really being done to stem the flow of these unnecessary killings. It would now appear that to satisfy potential investors the government is treating the daily slaughter of our citizens as normal.They are not prepared to call a State of Emergency which is urgently needed .It is now obvious, that they fear that by doing so, it may alert overseas investors that something is wrong here. What they are failing to realize is that once investors enter this country, and then realize what is really happening here they will quickly quickly pack their bags and retreat to safer havens of investment. The only and possible resource left here now that may still attract those greedy companies is our oil. Greedy investors however, are not going to pump any money into our depleting local oil industry if they are not given watertight guarantees of up front payment for the cost of further surveys etc. This in the end will reflect in our Treasury assets and have a profound effect on the cost of living of our citizens and the economic stability of the nation. Living on the hope that more oil reserves may be found in living in a make belief world. Previous exploration by these greedy companies have left the cupboard almost bare, without the reliance of oil and gas as our only means of survival. The government must now seriously attempt to search for local methods of diversification in order to meet the needs of those in our future society. They must remember the old saying 'That you never miss the water till the well runs dry'. The impression now given is that the politicians here are only prepared to undertake projects that offer them quick financial benefits in their lifetime, but are quite prepared to leave an empty legacy of dire need and poverty for our up coming generation. First and foremost is that the politicians here must find new ways of stemming the excessive flow of murders,serious crimes and increasing general lawlessness here to make the country a more secure society, before going galavanting and searching for potential investors and committing the nation to potential economic ruins merely to meet the financial greed of a few living in a make belief world.
Title: Diego Martin Another hot spot?
Comments: The reason why Diego has become a violent district is not hard to understand. Just put your thinking cap on a remember which of our notorious criminals lives in that potential hot spot, and have too, become a menace to our so-called democracy and justice system. Mind you, no one should tell the police or the authorities why Diego Martin has gone to dogs. They should know this. They just got to ask themselves who is behind all the crime in our hot spots here. Of course, its the members of our potential terrorist movement.Yes man, its members, of that so -called Muslim fanatical brigade led, by our former local policeman.In my opinion, the authorities and the police just don't want to hear this, and keep turning a blind eye to the evidence staring them in their faces.Diego Martin is now really another hot spot of local crime.
