Gun attack on
Well known hairstylist and cos-
metology teacher Essenese Sambury
was up to late yesterday in serious
condition at the Eric WIlliams Med-
ical Sciences Complex, Mount Hope,
after she was shot outside her Trinci-
ty home yesterday afternoon.
Kevie J Brathwaite: Seeing these
kind of news it causes instant head-
aches from worries and thoughts of
how far have we fallen. Where did
we really go wrong in Trinidad and
Tobago? Who's responsible? Why is

liste was credited for foiling a robbery
at a Chinese restaurant and bar in
San Fernando he was gunned down
outside the establishment yesterday
Rey Alley: We are living in the end
of times...its not going to get better
but worse and worse.
Loretta Ruth: D gun he does be
carrying is it licensed? D police held
him and let him go cause he is known
to dem. Ah wonder what kinda busi-
ness he into dat he does be carrying
about a gun.
Lilly Ann: I'm fed up of killing in
dis country... but then Jesus said in d
last days it wil be worse, men's hearts
will get more wicked n evil. Wicked-
ness taking over d country and really
and truly no govt cud stop crimes and
murders, kidnapping, rape.
Daniels Asriel: Trinidad is the
Middle East for the Caribbean.
Junior Wickham: Our country is
at a critical point and nothing con-
tinues to be done about the murders,
where is the value for life from both
the criminals and our authorities?
We continue to lose the battle against
crime. Time for the people to unite
and rise from our slumber. If mil-
lions could come for a march against
Trump why can't we march for our
country? Let's take back what is left.
Just fed up.
Ramdaye Ramroop: Do good get
killed, do bad go free.
Joy Cassie-leach: And Carnival is
still in motion?
