Kaisofan, I know now where the misunderstanding is coming from. I should have explained myself better when I said :

I still not understand how Trinis can continue living a "normal" life among the jungle we live in


It is not in reference to this case itself, if you notice, after that I said I hope this is a lesson for those who like to hang out in unsafe places. My rant was about the whole crime situation we live in.

LDS_forever, this is clearly one of those situations where we are each seeing only our side of the discussion. Mine is that when something happens, we can criticise the act that takes place when it is something that is based on irresponsible behaviour on the part of the person. As in this case, Brian's niece and her male friend were in a dimly lit place which can appear to anyone anywhere in the world to be an invitation to rob them or worse.
My main point was, why when disagreeing with what happened do we have to make reference to your comment

We can responsibly agree to disagree since otherwise we will both be saying the same thing over and over again.

Really it was a question of why we act as if this is unusual to Trinidad.


Do we? How?

I take note of comments by LDS_forever, but I do believe that there are places where you can go in all countries and places NOT to go in all countries.


Of course! My whole point (based on experience) was that some Trinis love to say it happens everywhere...yes...it does but by saying it is not going to make it go away, our focus should be here because we live here, no?

undecided.gif The "know" Trinidad was an error. Really it was a question of why we act as if this is unusual to Trinidad. I take note of comments by LDS_forever, but I do believe that there are places where you can go in all countries and places NOT to go in all countries.
My point is, we can say that these things should not happen in Trinidad but there is always the approach that when something bad happens it's all about Trinidad and not that a stupid act took place with the expected action.

Why do we continue to know Trinidad when anything happens.

What do you mean by why do we continue to "know" Trinidad?

As for the story... I hate to say you get what you are asking for, but as usual it seems that some Trinis just do not wish to come down to earth with how dangerous it is to play with their lives. Was that a Mercedes I saw on TV 6? Goodness, more attention!
