Title: Crime in T&T
Comments: The message coming from crime scenario here is that even if we had a more efficient and competent police force they would never be able to contain crime here without taking draconian measures.
The country can now be considered as a lawless nation. The responsibility for this lies squarely on the shoulders of past and present politicians.
This is supplemented by the attitude of those of status,those in positions of authority and the wealthy.
Their indulgence in personal greed, which is demonstrated by the galloping rate of the crime of corruption at the higher level of our society without any retribution has generated the various modes of lawlessness .
It merely encourages ordinary citizens to indulge in more sophisticated crimes of all types .It apparently is now too late for any local organisation to resolve our crime problems.
This is because too many government paid officials and influential citizens are now dabbling in corruption and deceit which sets a bad example,and clearly demonstrates that crime pays here.

Its a cultural thing. Just as 'we' are laid back about work and productivity its the same with how we see crime. Of course we all want crime to go down but the approach is always the same so you get the same results - crime out of control.

Title: Another waste of public money
Comments: Anyone familiar with what is going on in this country with regards to crime would be led to believe that our politicians are dumb, lack foresight, never learn by experience, and still believe they could buy their way out of our present crime scenario. Generally speaking politicians here give a clear impression that they are afraid to use the death penalty fearing they are going to offend those friendly developed nation. Mr Griffith our security minister, is again going to waste a lot of money by seeking more irrelevant advice from an American crime expert, who on his last visit told us what we already knew.
His expert advice on that visit made no difference whatsoever to our galloping crime rate. He however gained a fistful of dollars for useless information ,and he is about to do the same again whilst enjoying the sunshine here.
