Title: Police calls in the wilderness

Comments: The local police in very unlikely to get any help from the ordinary citizens here in respect of crimes committed in Trinidad. It is now far too late to expect the general public especially those from the poorer areas of our society to assist the police. Nowadays the local police are seen as their enemy.The police here have made their bed and must now lie in it. They still have the attitude of those old colonial policemen and offer protection only to those living in upper-class areas and the rich which even includes some who are corrupt. The police have been tarnished with the brush of corruption as in the past were alleged to have also dabbled in corruption. They are assisted by those in the justice and political system in applying one law for the rich and another for the poor which is now noticeable by our ordinary citizens. The important citizens of this island are also still maintaining colonial principles which are displayed by the examples they set in dealing with our ordinary lower class citizens as a whole. The calls for assistance from deprived area of this nation, even though they are strongholds of the present government are going to remain as cries in the wilderness, unless there are major reforms in the attitudes of the officials in TTPS, the justice system and some of our senior politicians who are not facing the reality of our internal situation in modern times.

Title: Violent crimes among the young

Comments: It is not at all surprising that violent crimes are on the increase with repect to the younger generation. With the amount of murders,serious crimes and corruption reported daily in the local press, and the failure of the government or the police to stem the flow of many of these crimes, it would in the eyes of the young seems easy to commit a violent crime and get away with it. We must also bear in mind that since our independence politicians in particular have stood by and watch our society developed crime as part of the culture of our nation. Something they are still in the process of doing whilst offering only lip service. The problem here is that we have bred too many smartmen and crooks who have adapted a special professional ability to talk themselves out of situations when cornered. A process that is still in the pipe line.

Title: Crime in Trinidad/Tobago

Comments: It is very immature for George and Hans to make the above comments regarding the above subject. While it is easy to point fingers at others for the cause of the committed crimes or compare other Nations with us, we are forgetting the fundamental principles- which - unfortunately we have abdicated and have put into the hands of 'authorities.' What about personal accountability and responsibility? What about respecting each other? What about living within one's means? What about a loving, caring home environment? What about having a spiritual life with values to reflect love, compassion?
We have walked away from the basic things that brought us contentment, peace and harmony and have bought into the destructive values of blaming others, hating others, envying others.
Like I said a few years back. It will take 2 generations to correct our present- and this is not likely to happen. We have drank the poison cups of liberalism, political correctness.

Title: Why set up useless probes and investigations

Comments: Why do the police and government commit themselves to setting up probes and investigations into corruption committed by either rich, politicians or other important citizens of this nation when the outcome usually end up the same without anyone really paying ant severe retribution. Those accused of this criminal offense are always offering some cock and bull stories which is usually supported by others involved in the very same act. It is about time those in the corridors of power and the police stop wasting public money and creating unnecessary public anxiety .Many of these probes and investigations are quietly sweep under the carpet and the results of those that cannot be hidden end up with the alleged culprits walking free .or receiving just a simple slap on their wrist.

Title: Crime in T&T

Comments: Obviously People of T&T got used to crime. Nobody is seeing a solution to stop the high murder rate. Actually, People get very defensive when foreigners talk about crime in T&T. The answer is often there is crime worldwide and as you are from Germany you should know there is plenty nazi crime in Germany. Yes, crime in T&T will be played down by their own citizens because they feel powerless to do anything about it. However, to those who believe there is plenty crime in Germany I always tell them to study statistics instead of looking for excuses. In Germany and most European countries the murder rate is about 1 per 100,000 per annum whilst it is about 35 per 100 000 citizens in T&T. Yes, this also includes the nasty Nazi crimes of Germany, which are a favourite Topic in Jewish newspapers.
