Title: prevention of murders and other serious crimes
Comments: No one citizen despite his or her morals or self discipline could act as a super being here where fighting crime is concerned. One of the main reasons why we elect politicians, is to ensure that they with the aid of the security services including the police is to protect us from the activities of criminals.
Here however, there is doubt as to the ability and honesty in our politicians and members of our security services to act as our protectors.They together with the judiciary apply one rule for the rich and an another for the poor.The clear impression given is that they are somewhat corrupt and are quick to turn a blind eye if he price is right.
This is not something new. The pioneers of our politics,and judiciary and their successors have all failed to play their part in preventing the expansion of crime on this island since our independence.
The record of crime on this island since our independence counting the present statistics on crime today speaks for itself.
Those in the corridors of power and in positions of authority must lead from the front and not themselves set bad examples, which are emulated by many of our responsible and other citizens.
When it comes to good governance of this small nation, politicians must take the blame for the failure to stem the flow of local crime and improve the thinking and attitudes of all of our citizens especially those who see crime as a paying form of employment.
Our politicians must refrain from keeping our politics based on racial lines. They must put more effort into racial integration if they ever want to achieve any victory over criminal activities on this island.
