Title: Crime rate linked to poverty

Comments: It would appear that all politicians and the affluent citizens here have failed, and are still failing, to comprehend that retaining poverty, and making citizens poorer especially in the deprived areas of this nation is the cause of our high crime rate. The districts contributing to the highest crime rates are the ones that are neglected and deprived of modern living conditions and amenities including good educational facilities.Leaving them in a form of primitiveness contributes to the production of more criminals If the trillions of dollars wasted or have disappeared from the profits of our oil and gas resources since our independence were equally divided in the development of all districts of the nation, then this nation by now should now have a very low crime rate as the spreading our wealth equally would have enhance the living condition in villages such as Laventille. With better educational facilities such districts would have produced more responsible and educated citizens and not citizens who have to resort to crime to make two ends meet because of the failure of politicians to give them the required financial support needed to enhance the environment quality of their districts, and their living standards and conditions. The cause for our perpetual high crime rate, rest squarely on the shoulders of our politicians especially those of the political party who has ruled the roost for long periods for many decades since our independence. The crime scenario and crime rate will become even higher and more widespread within many deprived villages of this island unless more money is spent in the prevention of galloping poverty .

Comments: I do not agree with the comments of the leader of the government opposition when she says that Prime Minister is interfering with the police system. The police like so many other organizations and officials associated with our politics or supervision and control of the nation have now become a law unto themselves and need to be drawn back in line with what is expected within a democracy.Whether the Prime Minister is the right person to put things back in order is questionable. At present, there appears to be a malicious and spiteful tit for tat battle going on between politicians on both sides of the fence at the expense of our political progress and our people. The main problem here is that we appear to have a huge number of semi-educated citizens who have inherited what appears to be a primitive and savage instinctive attitude which accounts for so many murders and brutal violence within our society that it is now becoming very difficult for governments of any color to govern this nation is a proper democratic manner. The present system of education needs an urgent overhaul and must include lessons in personal relationship, patriotism, and civic responsibilities. The results of the present education system reflect its results in a bad way, by the lack of consideration for others, personal behavior, financial greed, and the attitudes of our supposedly respected and important politicians and officials of this nation. Moreover, the lack of not having the right and proper education has led to the bad leadership of this nation since our independence.which is demonstrated by the comments of the opposition leader with regards to police/political matter and the Prime Ministers alleged intervention.

Title: Serious crimes galore

Comments: There is no doubt about it our nation has gone to pot. We are now in a sort of stupor with killings and a serious and rise in the crime of a corruption by those in authority which is now becoming widespread. Whilst, it is still difficult to count the number of citizens involved in corruption as you have to wait until they are actually caught in the act by waiting until they come out of the woodwork. It would now appear that they are all at it. The situation with regards to the slaughter of innocent citizens keeps gathering momentum by the actual dead bodies found some in a high state decay. In fact, it would now appear that the police have lost count of the true figure of the amount of murder committed so far this year. In my opinion, it now stands at around 435. Things are definitely going from bad to worse and the enforcers of law and order together with those in the corridors of power have no solution to the problems.Well, despite all the promises to stem the flow of this serious crime and the alleged measures taken the bad situation keeps on expanding.

Title: Local criminals ruling the ROOST

Comments: It would now appear that the police or other officials here are not sure of how many citizens have been murdered, gone missing or unaccounted for bearing in mind the contents of the report in the article which is appeared today in the Express entitled 'DID HE DIE? POLICE WANT TO KNOW'. What is rapidly happening within this nation has now become unbelievable and is not the sort of things one expects or is tolerated in any democracy. The other unbelievable story reported is about the drug baron who had eight surveillance cameras installed on a public lamp post in order that he could keep an eye on anyone including the police approaching his house. This again is just unbelievable and just goes to show how the criminals can control their activities and keep the police at bay. The strange thing about all this stuff is that those in the corridors of power and the police are still, or maybe not even trying to battle the criminals, as they are obviously still relying upon and using the same old methods of retaliation which obviously is not working. It is about time new and meaningful or perhaps even draconian techniques are used to stem the flow of what is obviously the widespread growth of lawlessness on this island which now making it the capital haven for criminal in the Caribbean where local criminals are allowed to rule the roost.

Comments: It is now quite obvious that the police had no impact on the annual murder rate of murders here whatsoever.This is despite the claims by the police serious crime has fallen. The final figure for murders committed this year seems most likely more or less to equal those of last year. Nothing new so far has been done to stem the flow of killings here which are now running at almost three or 4 per week.The killers are having a roaring time with murders galore. The promise by the Prime Minister to reintroduce the death penalty seems to be one of off the cuff promises made that never is fulfilled. Whilst we wait for such promises to be fulfilled many of our innocent citizens are being slaughtered some just for the fun of it. It would now appear that no other new meaningful or constructive approach to our serious crime scenario is going to be put into play. It would now appear that the level of murders and serious crimes here will just have to be accepted as the norm.
