For the past two weeks, the word EXPECTATION in relation to crime has been playing in my head. When or wherever in T&T there is an upsurge in crime, mainly murders, the police divisional heads say to the public we have increased patrols in the areas.

On Sunday afternoon at the Queen’s Park Oval, I joined the celebrations with ecstatic cricket fans in the aftermath of the West Indies’ convincing victory over the Sri Lankans by 226 runs.

The individual who insists on keeping large amounts of cash stored at home is playing a game of Russian roulette. With no security cameras installed this game is doubly not in your favour. Believing that nobody else knows that you keep vast amounts of unsecured cash is suicidal.

I want to express my deepest appreciation to the organisers of the We beat celebrations in St James for their continued inclusion of traditional Carnival characters. Traditional mas is something that is very near and dear to me and it has so much positive potential with the right imagination.

The problem of crime starts with ourselves. Too many people are negative. It is something we all need to work on as a people in these difficult times that we live in.

Anywhere in the world after a potential candidate has successfully acted consecutively for six months, they would be confirmed in the post.

Not in T&T. Another top contender has been shot down. Why is this?
