Title: Criminal activities

Comments: It is unfortunate that we keep tossing the responsibility of "bad behaviour" and correction of same unto the laps of the police force, the politicians, the teachers etc. When is the individual going to take that responsibility? Perhaps if we each see how our actions or in actions foster criminal activities we can then start addressing the growing epidemic within the Nation.

Title: Prevent

Comments: As an ordinary citizen all I can really do in to write letters to the newspapers and make comments on this website as I see fit. I may not always be correct in what I say and a lot of my views are controversial. I am certain that there are honest and well- intentioned police officers both in the hierarchy and in the lower ranks in our police force. However,in my opinion, the impression given is that somewhere along the line communication, authority and action and procedures are being manipulated by corrupt senior officers, police administrators and some politicians. It is only when the police start to arrest and treat politicians,those of status,the rich, and those known high ranking hardened criminals in the same manner as they treat the ordinary citizens here will they receive the earned respect and the deserved assistance from the public. In the battle against crime. They must set the expected equal examples where dealing with all crimes are concerned. Crimes committed by ALL citizens regardless of colour, class,race or creed must all be dealt with by the police with an equal application. Something that in not practiced on this island. At present, it would appear that where the police and especially the judiciary are concerned there is one law for the rich and another for the poor and the underclass. Politicians here must shoulder most of the blame for allowing the judiciary to influence the police by the manner in which they deal with those well off individuals and those of status who commit the crime of corruption and other serious offences. The hands of ordinary citizens are shackled as they rely on our politicians to control the police and the judiciary which they are failing to do. They have in fact allowed the TTPS to become a law onto themselves and now have very little effect in the manner in which the police operates.

It is easy to focus on the police. The borders open and there are other agencies tasked with protecting it that do not. And what about you George, I've been reading many of your critical postings about the police, however what are you as a citizen doing to help curb crime because it is a joint effort, not on the police alone.

Comments: The government is now going yet again to waste a vast amount of money buying sophisticated weapons for the police in an attempt to prevent the escalation of more crimes on this island. The police really do not need such equipment. The police need to clear out their rougue senior police officers,ineffective administrators and those lawless policemen in the lower ranks. Moreover, police here need to take a serious approach to their responsibilities. There have been a tremendous amount of money spent on the police in the past decades. This, however, has made no difference to their performance. I have always thought that a lack of manpower was the cause of their failure to make the expected progress in the battle against crime. I have, now however,concluded because of their lack of rapport with the public, bearing in mind some strange behaviour and lawless of some policemen, together with their personal attitudes, and lack of commitments, and perhaps too,the inadequate training of our police that this all amounts to their lack of their expected performance.

Title: T&T Crime problem

Comments: The meeting between the Prime Minister and the leader of the opposition has failed to deal immediately with the urgent matter of murders on this island. It all ended up as another talk shop,merely discussing the problem as has been done in previous decades without any real progress. Politicians here must comprehend that we are an independent nation. We cannot continue to use the Privy council rulings as a hard and fast implement, to deal with our criminals here. Surely over the last 54 years as an independent nation, we must have creates enough educated and professional legal citizens who are able to operate our own legal system effectively. Without constantly having to ask for guidance from the members of the Privy council We are being treated like children being regularly told what to do in respect of our legal system by those legal observers in a far away land who are failing to understand the real crime situation here. Locally many discussions on our attempt to bring about some form of correct and meaningful enforcement of law and order have all amounted to useless babblings and more of the same yapping in Parliament is again now expected. In the weeks to come whilst more useless yapping is taking place, dozens of our innocent citizens will be slaughtered. The killing spree will, in the long run, become commonplace in every district on this island caused mainly by our elected representatives failing to see eye to eye but however agreeing only to calm the anxiety of the public, by pulling the wool over the eyes of a vulnerable electorate. The masterminds of corruption, hardened criminals, and the common murderers are having a laugh at most of, of our senior politicians who are still running around like headless chickens, in the same manner,as they have been doing for decades by non-action in not creating any urgent constructive solution to our crime scenario yet again.
