The latest on the news is that they are going to be building more prisons to cope with the rising population of criminals. It is ashame to live in a society where criminality grows at a faster rate than the population at large which is on the decline.

I heard that the conditions are really, really bad. Even though I do not think it should look like the Hilton Hotel, basic needs must be provided!
In the Express today, pg. 3 is one story about a prisoner who is suing the State over the very poor conditions within the prison. He actually recalls having to stuff his mouth, ears, and nose with newspaper just to stop cockroaches from entering his body while he sleeps. What do you think about the prison conditions in Trinidad & Tobago? Have you ever been inside of a prison locally?
What the Chief of the Prisons in Trinidad say about it? 'To give them cigarrets is morally wrong' I'm wonder if he thinks that getting AIDS through homosexual sexual relations is NOT morally wrong?
Obviously, many think like this, but do not weigh homosexuality because it is a touchy subject.
I understand it is up to 10 in a cell with one toilet in the middle of the cell! I do not know if that is true, but that is ridiculous.

What do you think about the prison system in T&T?
The prison system in Trinidad and Tobago is TERRIBLE. They're overcrowded, they don't have any special serious programs for rehabilitation for the prisoners, there are guards who have AIDS! And not to mention the high percentage of AIDS between the prisoners related to homosexuality. One of the reasons? They're not allowed to smoke, so most of them prostitute themselves for a cigarette...the end? They get AIDS. What the Chief of the Prisons in Trinidad say about it? 'To give them cigarettes is morally wrong'. I'm wonder if he thinks that getting AIDS through homosexual sexual relations is NOT morally wrong? :
