Yet another own goal was played by Team Opposition, or shall we say 13 own goals for the match on July 30.

Had this been a football team would you suggest that they get a new coach? Buy some new players? Would a new coach help this side bereft of scintillating ideas?

Emancipation is an attempt or effort to procure economic and social rights, political rights or equality for a disenfranchised group.

Note my words well.

Attempt or effort.

Emancipation marks the end of the Atlantic Slave Trade.

How long do you think these scanners will last with the public using them, as well as without maintenance?

In a letter to the editor a fortnight ago, I made the point that the present Police Service Commission (PSC) should “do the honourable thing”.

One of the legal requirements for the office of Commissioner of Police is that he/she must have at least fifteen years experience of increasing responsibility in “law enforcement.”

The current candidate being bandied about is retired Captain Gary Griffith.

Meekness and fairness permit leaders to direct the show properly. Operations are properly directed when they benefit those for whom things were established.

I want to first of all congratulate France on winning this year’s World Cup and also congratulations to Croatia for surpassing expectations and finishing second. Very few would have predicted the small nation of Croatia to make it to the finals at the start of this tournament.

How difficult is it to insist that when patrolling/raiding the hot spots that body cameras should be worn by the police? It can only be alleged that they do not have enough working cameras or do not wish to wear them for reasons best left unsaid.

The fact that something is legal in twenty countries does not make T&T backward by not legalising it and is not a valid reason for legalisation.

In forty countries it is illegal to leave the “state religion.”
