Tears shed for East PoS
My heart goes out to the young lives lost in Port-of-Spain East. This is a wake up call to this nation that we need all forces out and armed, ready to take control of this situation and remind these criminals they are not supreme. The Prime Minister should reinstate the lock down in these areas as they had last year with the joint police patrols and camps. I am positive the residents are begging for this but are too afraid to speak out. Why are we allowing these people to paralyse the nation like this?
This did not affect just Port-of-Spain East you know, it affected me here in St Joseph, as I cried watching the pictures of these young children plastered all over the news. I also think some serious re-consideration needs to be taken up with the Defence Bill. We need our army and police joint patrols more than ever now. The Opposition Leader indicated his intention to work with Government on the present crime situation.
Does that mean he will finally reply to the AG's correspondence on the hanging bill, or come with some amendments to make this Defence Bill work? I am not even seeing the MP for the area. What have they been doing this whole time to encourage community involvement and unity? Where is the intervention? Don't they realise they have a role to play too. But I guess they will just blame the Government. It's a syndrome.
