How Crime Has Evolved

As the growth of socio-economic success took hold of Trinidad and Tobago so too did the desire for material possessions. In my personal opinion, serious spikes in crime started when there was a mass deportation of T&T nationals from North America (1999-2000). Another possible contributing factor was the influx of immigrants (both legal and illegal) that took up places and positions that would have otherwise been occupied by locals. The impact on real estate has been significant and basic salaries do not even cover the most standard of needs.

Latest Trini Chat:

I just learned through TV6 that the EMA does not have fireworks within its noise pollution policy. Although they said they are willing to amend it one would think that the ridiculous amount of noise from fireworks and scratch bombs would be automatically be considered. On another note the government is looking to ban fireworks from residential areas. That is fine but how do they plan to enforce it?
