Title: The police have failed to stem the murder rate

Comments: The random murders of ordinary civilians have become an everyday event here .The way things are going sooner or later almost all families will have some relative of theirs slaughtered by these killers on the loose on this island. Local killers have become more bold faced and callous and now show no remorse as reported in the Guardian this morning re the killings in Laventille. One of my relatives was murdered in a random manner by one of these madmen three years ago. The politicians have so far failed to take the draconian measures needed to stop these killings.and have allowed the police to have the final say in how our police should be administered which have so far proven ineffective and fiiutless. Moreover we now have no deterrent to stop these killers.mainly because of in fighting between our political parties who fail to see eye to eye on this matter. The reinstatement of the death penalty is urgently needed in order to deter the the killing spree that now exist.Politicians here too must stop trying to conform to the requirements of the human rights authority and face the reality of our local predicament. With such a small land mass of 60x40 miles and a small population an efficient and effective reasonable sized police force should be able to stem the flow of our annual murder rate Our police have over the last 50 years have made no impact in stemming the flow of this evil crime on this island. This is despite what the police hierarchy may say ,This is clearly evident by the consistent annual rate of murders. We need urgent experienced outside help without the intervention of biased politicians and other officials who act as obstacles and are contented to leave things as they are in order to satisfy the interest of themselves and the their corrupt associates. We also now kidnappings, another serious crime which is out of control.. This crime has surpassed corruption in the rank of acceptability as it is no longer even recorded by the police.The future looks bleak for citizens and the fear that me or you could be next on the slab at the mortuary is no longer a possibility but has now become a high probability.

Comments: It looks like all those loose murderers have left the island or have decided to give it a rest. Perhaps too ,one of those regular and persistent killers have been put to rest. I hope I haven't spoken too soon. With no murders reported in the last few days we probably could have a low rate of recorded murders for February thus leading to a fall throughout the following months ending up with a record annual low rate of murders which will be great.

Permanent army bases in high crime areas, why is this so hard to accomplish? They do it for a few weeks and the stop, why?

Comments: I see that despite Mr Williams announcement last year to keep the murder rate below 403 he has failed. By the way what about kidnappings eh? No mention of these crimes have been made by Mr Williams. Oh I forgot it is now reclassified a an acceptable serious crime and is only recorded if someone let the cat out of the bag, at the risk of the victim being murdered. In my opinion aiding and abetting the hiding of kidnappings is not helping the crime situation here. It only helps to give a false sense of security. By the way not until Abu Bakr is punished for his act of treason in 1990 will there be any let up in murders and serious crimes here by Afro / Trinidadians. His freedom and apparently later successful tactics in avoiding being punishment for other alleged criminal acts has embedded the belief in Afro / Trinidadians that crime pays here if you are black.

Title: Mr Williams [words to the media]

Comments: [In my opinion] Mr Williams [is not being realistic about crime in T&T]. [He is] a thorn in the flesh of those who are trying to fight crime here. He has now become a problem and is part and parcel of those aiding and abetting the criminals who obviously believe that they are not really causing any harm to the nation. He has been allowed yet again to paint a false picture of our crime scenario.. How on earth he has the audacity to say the things he has alleged to have said in this article [..]. He has acquired the technique and skills of [..] praising himself and his officers is taking things too far.. Our police do not deserve any praise as the crime situation has not improved. Just calculating the amount of crimes reported here on a daily basis by the media reveal the true state of what is really going on with regards to all types of criminal activities. His statement is clearly another attempt to pull the wool over the eyes of our vulnerable citizens. Crime is still rampant as ever. The murder rate has surpassed that of 2014. Kidnappings are again at a galloping pace,but is now no longer reported or reflected in the police stats. The police has cleverly reclassified this crime ,and the impression now given is that this alteration to the rules on reporting kidnappings must have been approved by our politicians. This has never been done in any other part of the world and has been done here deliberately in order to hide its effect on recorded crime thereby giving a false picture of our local crime scenario. Moreover, investigations into serious criminal matters are being purposely delayed and are gradually taken off the books and swept under the carpet one by one. The long and short of it all is that our politicians have allowed the police and those in its administrative system to become a law onto themselves at the expense of the ordinary citizens. The politicians and their wealthy corrupt associates are protected by our police,and therefore turn a blind eye to in roads made by the police hierarchy and its administrative body into having a say that adversely affects certain aspects of the governance and the security of the ordinary citizens of this nation.
