Title: Why set up useless probes and investigations

Comments: Why do the police and government commit themselves to setting up probes and investigations into corruption committed by either rich, politicians or other important citizens of this nation when the outcome usually end up the same without anyone really paying ant severe retribution. Those accused of this criminal offense are always offering some cock and bull stories which is usually supported by others involved in the very same act. It is about time those in the corridors of power and the police stop wasting public money and creating unnecessary public anxiety .Many of these probes and investigations are quietly sweep under the carpet and the results of those that cannot be hidden end up with the alleged culprits walking free .or receiving just a simple slap on their wrist.

Title: Crime in T&T

Comments: Obviously People of T&T got used to crime. Nobody is seeing a solution to stop the high murder rate. Actually, People get very defensive when foreigners talk about crime in T&T. The answer is often there is crime worldwide and as you are from Germany you should know there is plenty nazi crime in Germany. Yes, crime in T&T will be played down by their own citizens because they feel powerless to do anything about it. However, to those who believe there is plenty crime in Germany I always tell them to study statistics instead of looking for excuses. In Germany and most European countries the murder rate is about 1 per 100,000 per annum whilst it is about 35 per 100 000 citizens in T&T. Yes, this also includes the nasty Nazi crimes of Germany, which are a favourite Topic in Jewish newspapers.

Title: Indulgence in paying crime

Comments: It is now quite clear that crime pays here. The report of a senior police officer with over 25 years service has been arrested for heading a crime ring,accompanied by another report of two serving soldiers embezzling millions of dollars supports the trend in crime that pays. We also have the alleged corruption scandal concerning the transportation ships from Tobago to Trinidad. And the appointment by the Prime Minister of a one man judge and jury to investigate the matter free of charge. Then we have a Chinese citizens sentence to prison for attempting to bribe a police officer. On top of this we have criminals taking pot shots at workmen building a wall at a school. I suppose for the fun of it. Such lawlessness including the high rate of annual murders and other serious crimes in this nation is more that substantial proof that something is really wrong with our society that need urgent and drastic repair,and yet nothing new or meaningful is really being done to stop the galloping rate of criminal activities here. It would appear that there is now a complete breakdown of law and order here,and as far as crime is concerned there is a tremendous amount of our citizens despite colour class or creed are indulging in some form of criminality until they get caught. Since our independence our politicians and those in positions of responsibility have stood by and watch this nation gradually falling into a state of moral and lawless decline without taking any meaningful or constructive or necessary action to halt the erosion of this nation. These men and women of importance and power here,continue to merely offer lip service, and by the examples they set, has assisted in the now rapid destruction of this nation.

Title: Living in turmoil

Comments: Where ever you search in the world you won't find a more disturbed democracy than this nation. At present ordinary citizens are living in fear of their lives. Citizens in responsible positions and those in authority are no longer trusted and are now being perpetually displayed as crooks,most involved in some sort of corruption. Despite having a lots of policemen they are failing to catch the criminals. The justice system remain corrupt as ever. The impression given is that most of the population now want to dabbling in some form of crime despite their colour, class or creed. Those who decide not to succumb to crime are now the exception. Those in authority now appear to be economical with the truth and very manipulative and are really not fit for purpose. There is now little chance that anything will ever change the situation is clearly getting worse.The rather odd thing about it all is that, it would appear that those that can do something to stop the flow of our woes are quite contented to see and tolerate the turmoil in which they and those they govern live.

Title: we really need helicopters here to fight crime.

Comments: We really don't need helicopter to fight crime here.This is just again a waste of public money. This island is 60 miles by 40 miles with a large area which is sparsely populated. Gangster, crooks an a serious criminals inhabit the well known areas here. What we need is dedicated and honest policemen with good management and leadership to haunt down and catch the criminals. We need more honest and conscientious policemen not helicopters. What have we gain by using helicopters here, nothing. We still have a crime scenario as we had decades ago.Nothing has really changed, where crime is concerned here. At the end of this year we could expect another high figure around 500 of our citizens slaughtered,and yet we have responsible citizens in positions of authority here who keep playing the same old tune by regularly telling us that crime has fallen. Politicians here are taken for a ride and succumb to the wrong advise given to them by our so-called security experts. In my opinion this careless and wasteful spending is associated with 'kick backs' which is part and parcel of the local art of corruption and personal greed.This is caused by our easy access to quick money from the gains of our natural resources. Now that things are beginning to unravel, luxuries such as helicopters (Toys for the boys) will of course have to be mothballed.
