Crime in Trinidad What is going on here? I am amazed at the articles I read every day when I pull up the Express newspaper online. What really hurt me when I read this article was the poor boy who had to watch this happen to his mother. Is it really this bad now?

Fortress, it sounds like you want to incorporate the US 'Patriot Act' into our society (see Discussion here). I agree that the Government is not doing enough, but I think it is more of a problem of politics. You see if they start doing the things you mentioned above someone is either going to not get their 'dues' (someone in power) or the innocent will be victimized and the PNM will lose votes. In the end we may just be giving up the right to privacy and crime will still not come down. I do agree with petty crimes being overlooked, if those are prosecuted vigilantly then the bigger ones may not have any root. All in all my general feeling about the way things run in Trinidad is this: 'if it is not bothering me then I do not care', but wait til crime touches that individual's doorstep and then their tune changes.

Yeah I agree..there's a great measure of politics involved..that's the way the world works I guess and no matter how much we might appeal to the morals of our "leaders", fact of the matter is they're always going to put themselves first. It's just that its so frustrating!..I want to see something drastic, immediate and of great impact done! Put all the politics aside, the egoes...and I think the problem would be so easy to solve..one can only hope.

I'm disappointed in how things have become so bad in Trinidad. No doubt, there are people who have thought twice about investing and opening businessess in this troubled country.

What's the root cause of the crime? Is it unemployment? Is Trinidad generating too few employment opportunities?

Well, I believe those questions are covered in the previous posts, you may wish to take a look through from the start of this thread before replying, in that way no one has to repeat themselves.

I keep reading reports out of Trinidad via the online Express Newspaper and I cannot help but wonder what is going on. Are we on the path to Colombia? I am not even going to post the stories, just the headlines of ONLY today will be enough to grabb you:

For those of you who wonder about violent crime here then you should take a look at this Thread if you have Mature access: Bastards Walking At High Noon. I will not go into details here, it is too gory and it happened to a US Citizen as well.

These types of stories is precisely the reason why I am so hesitant to return to T&T and bring my family as well. I would love to show my family where I lived, grew up, went to school, etc, but I am terrified of all the crime, especially kidnappings, that is going on there. I may be able to retrieve my Trinidad accent but my wife and kids won't so they will stick out, making them prime targets. I couldn't live with myself if something were to happen to any one of them.
