How Crime Has Evolved

As the growth of socio-economic success took hold of Trinidad and Tobago so too did the desire for material possessions. In my personal opinion, serious spikes in crime started when there was a mass deportation of T&T nationals from North America (1999-2000). Another possible contributing factor was the influx of immigrants (both legal and illegal) that took up places and positions that would have otherwise been occupied by locals. The impact on real estate has been significant and basic salaries do not even cover the most standard of needs.

Title: Unhealthy foodstuff

Comments: Unhealthy foodstuff is not something new here. I clearly remember back in the nineteen fifties whilst helping my father who was a manager for a grocery store in Woodbrook opening a barrel of pork in brine and seeing hundreds of dead maggots floating in the brine. It was obvious that the pork was already rotten when it was prepared for export to Trinidad.
