Title: Prevention of murders and other serious crimes

Comments: The only way to stop the rampage of murders and other serious crimes here is for our politicians to show some compassion and take the everyday incidents as an important matter and reinstate the death penalty and start hanging those already convicted of murder.
Without a deterrent and no proper retribution for those random killers we shall continue to read and hear about the slaughter of many more innocent civilians here.
Politicians here are too wrapped up in party politics, and financial gain, which is associated with personal their greed to pay any interest into really preventing to murders of our citizens,and expansion of lawlessness and serious crimes here.All they do is offer lip service.
Our politics are so racially divided that it has become impossible for the political parties to come to some combined agreement in the real interest of all of our citizens that would put an end to the expansion of murders and other serious crimes on this island.
Not dealing effectively with murders and serious criminals here has given the signal to budding and hardened criminals here that crime pays.
All we can look forward to in the coming years are more murders, serious crimes, more criminals and the building of new prisons to house more of our local criminals.
Generally speaking politicians like many of our citizens, have now become immune to the vast amount of crime being committed on this island, and have more or less accepted the island as a haven for criminals.

Interesting to bring the picture up, what would have been better for you… a picture of an Indian man? Chinese, Syrian? Would that have told the message better for you or really in the end it doesn't matter because we just want the crime to stop no matter who is holding the gun?

Title: Racial profiling

Comments: Am I the only one who feels as though the afro trinidadian has become the official "poster boy" of crime?. This very website has a young black man with no shirt and sagging pants pointing a gun and infroont of this picture has the words "stop crime". Exactly what sort of message is that suppose to convey? Further more how is this profiling going to get to the the root of the issue which is the breakdown of morals and values. Prejudice breeds only negativity. A picture speaks 1000 words and the aforementioned picture has already said too much. Some may feel as though I am giving the wrong issue attention but consider this if all your life you are treated a particular way because of the way you look isn't it only a matter of time before you embrace said identity? For those who doubt my theory look up something called "the labeling theory".

Title: Prevention of crime

Comments: Without the death penalty,no effective crime plan and the promise of not calling a State of Emegency Mr Dillion is wasting his time in deploying police and soldiers to the Central area to fight crime. This must give, the criminals more assurance that they are most likely to get away with all types of crimes withour any real deterrent of hindrance. These crimnals whether murderers or not, will simple move on to another area of the island and carry on in their evil trade in the same manner. Criminals here must be caught and made to pay the deserved retribution. Deliberate murderers must face the the ultimate punishment of death by hanging. Introducing any new crime plan without the above procdures is simple a waste of time and money. Things have gone from bad to worse on this particular island and the solution is staring the politicians in their faces. The reinstatement of the death penalty, the commencment of hangings, the refornm of our corrupt police and judiciary system, and better morals and compassionate examples by those in the corridors of power and other distinguished citizens are all essential to stop the spread of the expanding lawlessness on this island. Surely I am not the only citizen with the above views.We need urgent positive and meaningful action now.Poiliticains and those in positions of authority must Stop the dilly-dallying .

Title: Crime is a money spinner here

Comments: I really don't know what can be done to convince our ordinary citizens that crime is a big wasted money spinner here. This is the very reason why there has been no improvement our crime scenario for decades. Perhaps the ;latest disclosure of figure of 32.6 billion dollars spent over the last 6 years which equates to around 5.5 BILLION dollars per year might open their eyes to what is really going on here. Despite all this high expenditure, we are more or less in the same position we were decades ago. We still have a constant high rate of murders, kidnappings, and other serious crimes together with a widespread increase in lawlessness which has even penetrated into schools where children are now dabbling in criminal activities .The main reason behind all this perpetual criminal and developing activity is because crime pays here,and very well indeed. Yes man,ask a politician. The police still without cannot control crime here and the National Minister of Security has given up .He has now run out of ideas of any new crime plans and the police are left to do as they see fit and has in fact now become a law onto themselves.We have no deterrent to hinder the crime of murder. Politicians, however, still keeps dishing out the dosh in massive amounts. Someone is benefiting from a waste of public there is nothing to show for such massive spending. Many of the equipment purchased to fight crime is soon or later found in the local market -place at a knock -down price. This is now become a habitual annual waste of a lot of public money, as we have nothing to show for this expenditure .We neither had no result with regards to the security or any improvement in the safety of our ordinary citizens, They are still being gunned down at an alarming rate, considering the small population of this nation and the vast sums of money supposed to be already spent on fighting crime. The untouchables remain untargeted by the criminals and are living in well -guarded communities secure and prospering from the assets of the nation which is spent to protect themselves and make them even richer, at the expense of the lives of our ordinary citizens. Our politicians want to face the facts, squandering vast amounts of money in efforts to fight crime has become a no no with no positive results whatsoever. We are still at square one,despite all of what could now be considered to some extent, a waste of public money. Yes, man, crime is a money spinner in this nation,There is no doubt about it.
