Way to go villagers of Springvale, who when confronted with marauding bandits, gave them a dose of their own medicine. Oh my God, for how long will we, the unarmed citizenry, be at the mercy of these crazed cowards, who feel that because they have a gun in hand and a jockey shorts around their face, they can do what they want.

It seems as if every expert has given an opinion on the nation’s prisons, the plight of inmates and of the officers. Little has been said, however, about the teenage girls, especially adolescents, who are detained at Golden Grove.

The tragic death of Keyana Cumberbatch dominated this week's news as well as the hearts of the citizens in T&T.

It is nice to follow a career in journalism. You get to meet people, sometimes important people. But it takes someone with “belly” to be a crime reporter. I did it for 32 years, and many of my friends felt I had become immune to seeing blood, dead bodies and criminals.

Verna St Rose Greaves shouted in the Parliament on Friday: “Our children are dying, do something!” A statement that was grossly incorrect. What she needed to be shouting is: “People are killing their children!” THAT is what is happening, THAT can be addressed. She also shouted that we need to do...

So the Caricom heads have met and roundly criticised the Dominican Republic (DR) for their treatment of the Haitians, and yet at the same time we have also deported I3 Jamaicans. Surely it is about time we develop a policy in respect of the movement of Caricom nationals within these islands,...

What happens to a dream deferred? It seems as if every expert has given an opinion on the nation’s prisons, the plight of inmates and of the officers. Little has been said, however, about the teenage girls, especially adolescents, who are detained at Golden Grove.

Dear Environmental Management Authority (EMA):

I live in south Trinidad, in Gulf View, in Soogrim Street. This whole area of Gulf View was a planned, well thought—out development.

Once again I have had the displeasure of having the need to visit a government office only to find that the office was unable to open because the security officer had not yet shown up for work.

At the risk of sounding like a stuck record, I am again calling on those on whom the responsibility has been bestowed, to please do something. Setting up mentoring programmes will not do it.

Please grant me the opportunity to express a concern of mine that has been bothering me for years. First of all, my condolences go out to the family, friends and coworkers of security officer Mr Bert Clarke, who met his death in a very tragic and sorrowful manner.

I am trying to imagine why the media found it necessary to reveal the amount stolen, during that horrific murder of the security guard, in that brazen and obviously well-planned attack on the Sentinel Security Ltd vehicle on the highway a few days ago. Initial reports were that the bandits made...

Tony Fraser’s column “Kumar, Protector of the Indians” (November 27) should have read “Kumar, Builder of Trinidad.” Tony Fraser has chosen to label Ranjit Kumar as an Indian leader.
