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.

Title: Mafia influence in crime

Comments: The clear impression now given is that this country has been operating on a Mafia type administration. I am not only referring to the present administration but to previous administrations. There are too many conflicts and confrontation on matters of government important procedures that have prevented the advancement of this nation and are still doing so. Under the normal rules of democracy and bearing in mind legislation and the constitution the interference with the process of government is never so manipulated or disputed by one political side or the other merely for financial gain. There are now four glaring aspects of suspicious internal matters that supports the possibility the a Mafia type administration is implemented. The first is that despite many of the elite are caught dabbling in corruption none of the offenders are behind bars. The police and the judiciary seem to be playing an active role in protecting these criminals. The second is that on this island the leading criminal offence bar murders, kidnappings have become acceptable and no longer reported or is now in the limelight.Kidnappings seem to be the biggest (Hushed up) money spinner of organised crime here with the proceeds from paid ransoms equally shared by the operators of this crime. Third there are too many unsolved murders especially random murders together with the fact that there are too many loose killers roaming our streets without hindrance and are free to strike whenever they see fit, or instructed tom do so. Fourth. The masterminds of crime here the Mafia leaders ie( The Mr Bigs) are never caught and are allowed to carrying on doing business as usual. These are the significannot pointers that indicate that this nation is under a strong influence of a Mafia type governance especially when comparing it to other countries with similar population and police manning level. The above mentioned observations are those generally associated with any Mafia run society.

Title: Prevention of corruption

Comments: I feel certain that among the corrupt hierarchy of our police system their are some senior officers who are honest citizens and who would like to bring about the corrupt underhand practices undertaken by the already wealthy citizens who are milking this nation of wealth gain from its resources. My advice to such senior officers is to throw down the gauntlet ,get organised and go for creating a more secure and happy nation by making an open statement on their intentions to bring in the greedy financial rogues who are creating more poverty in this nation by stealing our wealth. Such a move would immediately gain more respect for our police system and would encourage the public to assist the police in fighting crime here. Not only that, but the leaders of such a move would be considered as true Trinis and the nation and its ordinary citizens would be grateful and in perpetual debt for their heroic endeavour which in the end will prove successful

Title: crime prevention

Comments: If the police here needs to get the upper hand and regain the assistance of honest citizens to prevent the escalation of crime then they need to stop protecting the upper class and supporting a corrupt judiciary. It is only when the ordinary citizens see that there is fair play in our justice system and the police that the police in particular will reap any rewards and help from such citizens. It is pointless now trying to convince ordinary men and women here that our rich and wealthy are not corrupt and need protection. Almost all the upper classes, the rich and those of status an in positions of authority are dabbling in corruption at the expense of the ordinary citizens in more ways than one. You won't find any of these upper class thieves behind bars on this island. Our prisons are brimming over with the poor uneducated petty criminals from deprived areas. This is now caused by part and parcel of the crimes generated by our professional wealthy masterminds of corruption and the example they set reflecting that crime pays here. Until something is constructively done to prevent the rich from becoming richer ,and ensuring that the poor have an equal share of our wealth and a more responsible and caring judiciary we will just keep going around in circles. The police at the end of the day if things remain in the present state the police at the end of the day will still remain as the enemy by our ordinary citizens. Remember that the more neglect and unfairness the underdogs of our nation received the more crimes will be generated.

Comments: Asking for help from the public to assist the police with fighting crime here is like uttering a cry in the wilderness. Folks here have lost faith in our police and in most cases see them as the enemy. It is however a shame. The causes for this view of the police those of status and in positions of authority ,is that there have been too much corruption at the higher level of our society including some in the hierarchy of the police system.
Theses offenders are never punished, and the proof is inn the pudding. You would find any of these Criminal offenders behind bars here. The public has got the impression that they are being protected both by the police and the judiciary. Moreover over the last four decades certain crime here have become acceptable. Relying on the ordinary citizen here to help the police is a no,no
