Title: Crime in T &T

Comments: Whilst I agree with most of what Mr Aston has said, he has apparently failed the understand that the good starting point of morals,self discipline, respect for the police,politicians and many in positions of authority here as a guide to our children or even those parents who were born after our independence have been eroded by the bad examples set by most of those who has and are still governing this nation.How on earth will we ever get back to some form of normally God knows.with such eradication of old tried and tested established guidelines.
The finger has to be pointed to some one or group of responsible citizens for our present internal predicament. This does not only relate to our crime scenario, in includes the attitudes to personal greed for wealth,general lawlessness,corruption, poverty, disrespect for the elderly,the police and the growing belief by our younger generation that crime pays here.
The long and short of it is that our mentors, elected representatives and those holding responsible official position here are quite prepared to sit back,offer meaningless lip service, but do nothing constructive or worthwhile to improve the situation.
They are quite prepared to take the easy way out despite the fact it will make matters worse. In fact some of their ideas of fixing what is wrong seems to me most bazaar,and could be considered as crazy and taking a backward step.. For instance the suggestion of handing out condoms to school children and offering prayer to God to resolve our crime situation together with the now embedded and accepted idea and habit of most of our senior politicians who feather their nest, by milking the Treasury funds.

Title: Crime in Trinidad

Comments: It is so very easy to point fingers at others and blame others for one's failures. Granted, there needs to be in place some structures around us to promote a morally progressive society. However, a large percentage of our views, values, beliefs, references come from our immediate surrounding. (Our home, our family, our relatives, our friends). In order to start reversing this downward trend on which we have embarked, each of us need to re- access what we want from life, what we want for our children, what we expect from our leaders, our clergy, our neighbours.
The basic principles of respect, love, contentment, peace, harmony, sharing, kindness- they have been replaced when we allowed ourselves to be lured into a highly competitive and selfish world.
The 'genie' is now outside the bottle. Unless we need to do some soul searching and stop pointing fingers. We have been pointing fingers and expecting others to do the 'lifting' for us. Perhaps we need to start 'lifting' our own load.

Title: Heading into the Abyss

Comments: The impression given here by those governing this nation and those in positions of authority is that they are all bunkers. My suggestion a few months ago that the government should start building prisons and an asylum to house themselves still stands. Here were have an important public figure suggesting that school children be given condoms,and that this will deter them from having sex in schools. Then we have the Acting Commissioner of police calling on citizens to start praying in order to solve our crime problem. Then we have the most notorious criminal on this island showing no signs of gratification from the politicians for sparing his life after attempting a coup in1990 but now suing the government for millions. He was also allowed without any hindrance to form and lead a so-called Muslim movement which has now producing terrorists by the dozens and is still leading a movement that remains a threat to our democracy. In addition to this, we have a world renowned mastermind of corrupting running around free on this island who is wanted by the FBI to answer charges on alleged corruption whilst serving in an important position in FIFA, which he denies but won't face a court to prove his innocence. Most damaging of all we are now heading the list of murders worldwide,have a police force which is disliked and not trusted by our citizens. And a obviously corrupt justice system. Yes and with all these adverse occurrences on this piece of land measuring 60x 40 miles with a population of 1.4 million with elected representatives calling themselves politicians but doing absolutely nothing to stem the flow of murders, serious crimes, kidnappings, and widespread galloping lawlessness. Looks to me like the country is operating on the lines of the Mafia type administration, and are certainly heading head first into the abyss eh.

Title: Reporting fall in serious crimes

Comments: I am sure that 50% of anything was and is still considered average and 25% or less was and still is considered a failure.Bearing this in mind I cannot see what the Chief superintendent of the Northern police division is crowing about when he declares in public that there was a 23% fall in serious crimes in 2016 in his division. Now, on a small island like this where everyone more or less know who is who and with a large police force such as ours and bearing in mind the large amount of crimes being committed here, in my opinion at least half of the local crimes in any district should be resolved.annually to show that some real effort is being made to stem the flow of our galloping crime. What has been demonstrated by the low percentage of fallen crime in any division goes to show that the criminals still have the upper hand here and the police are making no headway and are failing to meet the challenge. Now our citizens especially members of our security services which includes the policed must face the reality of the situation.Criminals must be psychically apprehended,charged and brought to trial and if found guilty awarded the due punishment. Turning to God for help by praying is not going to making these things happen, neither is it going to make the culprit surrender himself to the police. No.this is impossible.The matter of religion has a different meaning to each individual .It relates to the inner man and his soul. It was never meant to resolve any such adverse events in which criminals or any other human group partake. Our police officers must get down to earth and stop look at the heavens for help.They must get out of their cars and comfortable police stations .and get out on foot patrols and form relationships with community leaders in order to get inside information about potential and hardened criminals in their districts. If I was a senior officer in any district here I certainly won't disclose to the public that the bottom of the barrel is being scraped in order to show the public such poor results in fallen serious crimes in my division.

Comments: It is really unbelievable the audacity being displayed by Mr Rowley and other senior members of the PNM political party when they complain of being frustrated with the amount of murders,lawlessness and other crimes here. It gives the impression since this is voiced via the media, that they are seeking sympathy from the ordinary citizens. These politicians are at it again, playing at politics. They are failing to realize why they were elected. May I wish to remind them why they were elected. They were elected because they said that under the governorship of the opposition that the country was in a mess and they promised eto sort out all our woes, when the got into the corridors of power. They have in fact done nothing at all since they took office in this respect. All they seem interested in is with the finances of the nation, and one could bet this has to do with feathering their own nests.With regards to the history of our crime scenario. Crime has been a problem here since after our independence which must indicate that something is not right with the approach to the governance of this nation by our locally elected politicians,bearing in mind that we had very little crime here prior to our independence. Our political pioneers since our independence seem to generate a mountain of various crimes here since they took control from our colonial masters. This brigade of moaning politicians are well aware what some of the key solutions are to curb our expanding crime and lawlessness problems here .They are well informed of what the majority of the population wants, but have chosen to do nothing in fact, they have run out of ideas. They do not even have a crime plan which was disclosed by Mr Dillon in a recent statement,and they are now trying yet again to pull the wool over the eyes of our citizens by complaining of how they feel about crime here. They have now run out of new ineffective ideas offered by their constant lip service and are now trying new ploy.by adopting to the traditional tactics of the local smart men in order to gain sympathy from the public. If they want to remain in power, they must take the bull by the horn now,by restoring the death penalty and commence the immediate hangings of our already convicted killers. They must also seek outside help with regards the policing this nation. The police and the judiciary must be urgently reformed. If these things are not done now we could look forward to more lamenting from these politicians who promised to put the nation back on the right track during their political canvassing and when they came into power.
