Comments: It will be a god-send if the AG and the Prime Minister stop the bleating about the constant rate of murders here and do the two main and necessary things that are now essential to halt the present murder spree. They want to agree to call a State of Emergency followed immediately by restoring the death penalty and start hanging those already convicted killers, We just can't go on like this. Something drastic must be done NOW. To delay the inevitable is only going to cause more unnecessary murders on this island. Politicians governing this nation must act quickly to show that they do care about the people of this nation.

Title: Crime statistics

Comments: Since the hangings of Dole Chadee and members of his gang in 1999 when the annual murder rate was 93 there have been 6153 murders recorded here, which is an average of 342 per year. Yet despite the increase in police manpower which now stands at around 7000 men and a supply of many modern forms of equipment we are still faced ith an annual high murder rate on this piece of earth measuring 60 x 40 miles with many areas still uninhabited. Moreover, this is not the only connected crime problem to this scenario. Since it is now obvious that our police are making no headway in stemming the flow of murders by apprehending the killers who have now become repeated offenders it has generated other aspects of lawlessness here. It is, therefore, essential that the death penalty is restored immediately in order to stem the flow of our violent murders.The problem now, of course, is to catch these killers before the figures start to escalate. Since we have stopped hangings in the country, the murder rate has accelerated beyond our expectation, so has other rates of serious crimes.This is a perpetual trend which is evident by our past record of statistics.

Comments: The problem with regards to murders here is not necessarily too many guns. It is simply that we have too many habitual killers on the loose. Most of these killers are old hands at the act of violent murders. The police failure to catch them is the main cause for the expansion of the slaughter of so many of our citizens on a daily basis. In America for example, every citizen has the right to carry a firearm, However, the daily rate of murders in that country with a population of 309 million people is insignificant in comparison to ours. Moreover, many states in the USA still use execution as the main retribution to halt the expansion of violent murders and those who don't, such as Ohio, are now again reinstating the death penalty. The culture of guns and its associated violence was first introduced into this country via our police by the pioneers of our politics after our independence.They decided that our police needed guns to deal with our hardened criminals. In fact, this had more to do with 'kick backs' than a police essential requirement. In order to retaliate against the police the gun became a 'must have item; for our hardened criminals and today, it remains the main instrument in the act of murders on this island.It encouraged other crimes such as kidnappings which still is a criminal money spinner on this island, despite what the politicians and the police will like us to believe, In my opinion, we have now left with two alternatives in order to stem the flow of our ever increasing murder rate.The first, is to reinstate the death penalty now and commence the hangings of those killers already found guilty of this violent crime. The second which seem now impossible is to apprehend those loose killers and imprison them for life which in the end will be a burden on our Treasury funds as it would mean that sooner than later new prisons will have to be built which will cost the nation an arm and a leg to maintain. If however, the police happen to catch our present brigade of roaming killers we could look forward to more rogue citizens joining the brigade of these violent killers. Politicians and the members of the police hierarchy must stop making excuses for their failures in dealing effectively with the widespread lawlessness, serious crimes, and murderers on this island.They must restore the death penalty now.

Comments: The pattern of most murders here have not changed for over five decades.We still have random murders, some having no motives whatsoever. The gun is still the main instrument used in these killings. The only thing that has changed here is that murders have become more widespread throughout the island. Killers seem to have no fear whatsoever of being caught. Recently some of the murders have taken place right under the noses of our police domain. The police now appear to have taken the same pattern of thought about the safety of our ordinary citizens here. They know what the solution is ie restore the death penalty. However, despite this, not one of our politicians or senior police officers have shown any persistence interest in returning the well known and tried deterrent. Now that crime here has become too big a task for the police and our security services to deal with, they are simply turning a blind eye to the now galloping rate of murders. The politicians and the police see such murders as an expected everyday event. Since the police have now become a law unto themselves and have ignored the enforcement of law and order related to murders as well as other forms of local lawlessness, more of our people are living in fear. They have gradually over the last few years have grown to disrespect and despise the police, and in almost every case see them as the enemy. Since they have no protection they too have now turned blind eye to the police cry for assistance and help in fighting local crime' They live in daily fear that they too may become a victim if they show any inclination of assisting the police. The non-effectiveness of the politicians and the happy go lucky attitudes of our local police has caused many of our killers to become habitual killers some even treating killing other human beings as a hobby. Although the pattern of murders have not changed the failure of the police to catch most killers have helped to create a more lawless society with more kidnappings and other new and serious crimes. In the long run, if things continue as they are no overseas investors will want to do business with this country, which has now become quite clearly a haven for criminals where crime pays so well, that even the local police are now jumping on the local criminal bandwagon by the dozens.

Title: How to improve against crime

Comments: Trinidad is too small to have all this increasing on crime. Lets be honest everybody knows around your area who is good or bad or who to deal or not. But police must to be stronger and faster on action. Lets put more camera around the country… if catch criminal let them stay longer in jail no 4 or 5 years but 15 or 20 until they forget they own name.

Use international technology may help in better way. I read article an example : police know that element as gang leader… so why he is around put [him] in jail. Catch all the gangs leaders squeeze them until they will reveal all the bad affair… Protect all those people who speak against crime in a case… before they get killed… just because they been honest.

Remove all the mobile phone in jail… plenty criminals still on action even from jail… Put more Coast Guards day and night as vigilant… Check properly all [the] containers. Build more jails for criminals. Make a stronger laws otherwise nobody will feel to go in T&T or invest in T&T.
