Title: Crime getting out of hand

Comments: I refer the article in the Express today entitled 'Crime getting out of hand'. Crime has been out of hand here for decades. It started after our independence under the control of our political pioneer playing gods especially those of the PNM who has stood back and watched the gradual escalation of criminals and terrorists building their empires, and have and are still doing nothing to halt the expansion of our criminal and terrorist armies. It would appear that our politicians on both sides of the fence are quite prepared to let things remain as they are. They wallow in political division by race and by doing so have encouraged racism throughout this nation. They appear to be quite happy to carry on in this fashion as long as the racial issue remain under wraps.and do not cause any internal racial uprising. In order to reduce crime here the politicians must stop creating poverty and introduce meaningful legislation to halt the spread of racial discrimination and inequalities of the citizens of this nation. There are well recognized perpetual repeated promises and statements made by politicians of doing the right thing, yet nothing is being done. All we get are these repeated promises again and again.Looking back since our independence, you would find the same promises made several time over the past decades but were never fulfilled. Human life here has no value whatsoever,and this has come about because of the immunity,lack of morals and compassion of politicians and those in authority in respect of their outlook of the security and livelihood of our citizens.They have helped in creating a dog eat dog society. I forecast earlier this year that the annual murder figure for this year is going to be around 440. However, as things now stands it will in my opinion now be around 500 or more. This is because nothing NEW, meaningful or constructive has been done to stop the slaughter of our citizens. Politicians here have handed the responsibility for control and management of our crime scenario over to the police lock, stock and barrel thus allowing them to become a law unto themselves where senior officers have themselves become lawbreakers and are still allowed to carry on as usual despite the fact that they are awaiting court appearances.This sort of event encourages disrespect by our citizens for the police hierarchy and those in the lower ranks. . This police force needs outside help in a big way. The government should ensure that they get such help .and stop supplying the police with more money which is being wasted on unnecessary equipment. We need respected policemen dedicated to the protection our citizens not policemen who are now following the trend of most of our politicians of feathering their own nest even if it means joining the ranks of the criminals. Most of all we need politicians with a different mentality and foresight than those of previous decades. We need honest politicians with inspiration to improve the status of every citizens and not prolong and enhance poverty and racism which only leads to more crime, thus encouraging crime to get out of hand.
