Title: Improving the crime scenario here

Comments: It is now impossible to make those in the corridors of power, other politicians, those of status, and in positions of authority to face reality and stop asking for the appointment of a new local police commissioner. It is now quite clear because of our past and present records that we do not have the calibre of citizens within our police system suitable or capable of changing the crime situation here. The present Acting police commissioner just do as he is told and his masters are apparently pleased with his antics of painting a monthly pretty picture trying to convince the public that crime has fallen when this is far from the truth. Our present brigade of senior officers are only supportive of the wealthy whether they be honest or corrupt citizens, These faceless men at the very top of our security and police system together with our lower ranked policemen are seen by ordinary citizens as a law unto themselves and therefore as the enemy of the ordinary citizens. If our government politicians who now have very little say in how our police system is controlled and operated want to improve our general crime scenario, then the police system needs to be handed over to an outside experienced and well established police commissioner and his associates. Any new outside management team of our police system must be allowed to take full control without any hindrance in order to be able to alter the present procedures and mentality of those in the hierarchy of our present police system. The truth of the matter is where this nation is concerned we need a revolution to put things back to normal. The pioneers of our politics and their successors since our independence, have made a complete mess of almost all aspect and elements of governing a nation such as ours. They have by their examples encourage corruption in high places and have help to generate a multitude of new crimes within the nation. This is now being reflected in the reported behaviour of the young school children here,together with the widespread galloping pace of lawlessness that now exist throughout the population. The main cause of this degrading state of affairs is the desire by everyone here to get rich overnight, and the bad examples especially those set by politicians, who appear to be suffering from acute personal financial greed and deceit. . We have in the past decades created many very rich citizens overnight mainly by means of underhand corrupt practices, who even when caught are allowed to keep the loot and pay no retribution.Most end up by just getting a slap on their wrist. Politicians here have stood by and do nothing constructive whatsoever except offer lip service,where the daily murders of our ordinary citizens. Are concerned. They have handed the responsibility lock,stock,and barrel to an inadequate police force led by men of suspected dubious reputation. Politicians here because of political in fighting have failed to reinstate the death penalty and the police has also given a free hand to local kidnappers, as kidnappings itself is no longer recorded as a criminal act .Kidnappings are now only so classified as a crime by the police if a ransom demand is associated to this crime. With this sort of bending the rules of law and order which is obviously approved by politicians, the country has now become a haven for all types of criminals because the impression given here is that crime pays. The problem that exist is now set in concrete and in order to dismantle this set up a new approach with outside urgently needed.Without such help we can just look forward for more of the same for years to come.

Title: crime inT&T

Comments: The major problem here is corruption.The politicians,many senior police officers, and members of the legal profession and even many of our citizens know who the big boys are, who generate crime and use it as a money spinner.
The sad and destroying aspect of this knowledge is that those here in positions of power and authority, standby and do nothing to put these evil culprits behind bars .Instead they act as blinded protectors,provided the price is right.There are many outstanding examples of the corrupt and known hardened criminals being allowed to walk free on this island and escaping the arm of our justice system.

Crime in this country will not go down until we see more white collar criminals prosecuted because for me the untouchable wealthy criminals are the ones funding it.

Title: Murder count

Comments: The annual rate of murders on this island is most likely to surpass last year's figure. The police need more well trained officers and is generally lacking in manpower to be able to deal effectively with our habitual and hardened murderers who now kill at random for the joy of it. Politicians here have wiped their hands of the responsibility for crime and has past the buck to the police lock, stock, and barrel thus turning them into a law unto themselves. There is at present no crime plan as the experts here have run out of ideas and are still not facing the reality of the problem. They continue to offer meaningless lip service and are quite prepared to accept the daily slaughter of our citizens without dong anything meaningful or really beneficial to resolve the problem that has been lingering here since our independence. This is despite promises from various politicians for the past five decades to rid our society of this evil practice. Without a deterrent such as the death penalty,and the resumption of hangings, there will never be any let up in the rate of murders on this island.

Title: prevention of murders and other serious crimes

Comments: No one citizen despite his or her morals or self discipline could act as a super being here where fighting crime is concerned. One of the main reasons why we elect politicians, is to ensure that they with the aid of the security services including the police is to protect us from the activities of criminals.
Here however, there is doubt as to the ability and honesty in our politicians and members of our security services to act as our protectors.They together with the judiciary apply one rule for the rich and an another for the poor.The clear impression given is that they are somewhat corrupt and are quick to turn a blind eye if he price is right.
This is not something new. The pioneers of our politics,and judiciary and their successors have all failed to play their part in preventing the expansion of crime on this island since our independence.
The record of crime on this island since our independence counting the present statistics on crime today speaks for itself.
Those in the corridors of power and in positions of authority must lead from the front and not themselves set bad examples, which are emulated by many of our responsible and other citizens.
When it comes to good governance of this small nation, politicians must take the blame for the failure to stem the flow of local crime and improve the thinking and attitudes of all of our citizens especially those who see crime as a paying form of employment.
Our politicians must refrain from keeping our politics based on racial lines. They must put more effort into racial integration if they ever want to achieve any victory over criminal activities on this island.
