Trinidad seeks foreign police help

Monday, October 3, 2005

Trinidad and Tobago's Prime Minister, Patrick Manning has asked London's Scotland Yard and the American FBI for teams to help deal with a surge in violent crime.
The island has had a record 275 murders this year, among a population of 1.3m. For September alone 40 people were killed. Last week about 400 businesses took out full-page advertisements in newspapers, holding the Prime Minister personally responsible.
Mr. Manning said crime on the islands was part of a global problem and needed international assistance. He referred to the illegal drug trade as having created a criminal elite, with enough resources to corrupt public institutions. Profits from drug trafficking were being used to buy weapons and ammunitions which are used by feuding gangs.
The prime minister also blamed criminals deported back to the country from the UK, the US and Canada as contributing to the crime problem.

In these troubled times
what we need is not in the form of man. What we nned is a higher being to have an impact in our life and repent us from our sin. What people need to do now is seek god for the answer of man's evil ways and corrputions.

Trinidad & Tobago Crime
I left Trinidad after living there for 3 years. I am an American and enjoyed the people & culture so very much. I was treated with more respect in Trini than my own country and it saddens me to see that the government does nothing, police do nothing to help not only foreigners who want to come and enjoy such beautiful culture and it's beautiful people, but the local people who strive everyday to make their way for a better life. What a waste!!!!! Manning HAS to go. Asking America for help isn't the answer!!! We cannot even take care of our own here. People of T&T must UNITE as ONE and hold strong!! I would love to move back to T&T, it was the happiest years of my life.

good idea
I'm not Trinidadian but i'm Jamaican. My dad was murdered by gun men for his Lexus. I've bee PRAYING for Jamaica to do the same thing and get some outside help because our own police aren't helping us. They're all currupt and working with the gun men. I REALLY WISH JAMAICA WOULD DO THE SAMETHING. The Caribbean is going down and wheather we want to admit it or not, we need help. Jamaica doesn't make guns and the criminals can't bring the guns into the islands, it's our politicians who are responsible for helping to bring the guns into the country because the gunmen who are dons for various ghetto communities. They do this in exchange for votes because the dons get their communities to vote for them through violence. Jamaica may never change, but i'm never gonna stop praying, i want to bring up my children in Jamaica when i have them but i'm not going to if we don't change.

T&T stupid
How the hell you gonna ask the people who place the guns and amnuition in the country to help you solve the murders. AmeriKKKa and London are both laughing all the way to the bank at these idiots.

Good Idea
I think that this is a good idea because as a Trinidadian leaving abroad it is sad to see the effect that crime is having on my lovely island. It is about time that the government started to take an aggressive stance against crime.

Guyana should follow
I think Guyana should follow T&T footsteps, since I know myself Guyana never solve any murder case, this cause the country to get from bad to worst. It will slow down the crime and put the so-call, drug lords funding group "the phantom" out of business.
