PM: PICK YOUR MEN WISELY
Jamilia DeRevenaux, 27, had
confided in a close friend that she
had made up her mind to change
some aspects of her personal life
and who she had around her. How-
ever, hours after her decision she
was brutally murdered - her throat
slashed by a man police believe
lured her to her death in the Movi-
eTowne basement car park.
Denise Phillip Change mindset
of the men.
Elise Commissiong Trying to
grasp the concept of how they're
making speeding a priority but not
the escalating crime rate! #fourth-
Debbie Seeraj She decided to
come out of the alleged abusive
relationship, and she still died, so
what women have to do to be safe?
Nancy Chiddick So the blame
is on the victim for not picking her
Rajanne Andrew Yes I agree
the statement may rub some the
wrong way but we as women need
to be careful who we bring into
our lives. We need to. Thing is we
see the signs and ignore them. N
if as a woman u wanna doubt that
then that's ok. We would know he
is into drugs and keep him around,
he would abuse us emotionally,
physically and give him chances.
We need to be careful, spot the
signs and buss it while its early.
I agree his choice of words need
Selwyn Robert Ellis Some of
the women knew that the man
they love is a criminal but they still
go and live with them, if he don't
kill her someone else will kill the
both of them, so it good to make a
Velma Farrell Women (some)
are desperate for affection. They
are willing to fall for men with
no moral compass. I am almost
certain this was not his first act of
violence towards the poor victim.
Catherine Farah My prayers
go out to his young girl's family.
This is such distressing news. She
was trying to do the right thing
about her life. Our Prime Ministers
Words to women ''Pick your men
wisely" is a good sound message
to our women. I know that it is not
easy as we do not always know if
the men we are dating are genuine
good caring men, but we need to
know the negative signs and get
out of the relationship before a
tragic ending. This young woman
had her whole life ahead of her.
Defend them says Bunji
Soca star Ian "Bunji Garlin" Al-
varez yesterday sent out a "Defend
the Women" challenge to all men
in T&T. In a three minute thir-
ty-five second video sent via social
media in apparent response to the
latest killing of Jamilia DeReve-
naux, Alvarez said T&T's women
are under pressure and being
forced to endure serious problems.
Gilberte O'Sullivan Thank
you Bunji. Can you talk to the PM
now? Because he doesn't seem to
Tracy RC We glorify public
shaming. Instead of helping our
fellow man, we videotape it and
laugh. We need to do better.
Hazel Cummings Sad reality
is not the real men need this... the
punks need to be told this.
Sweetman Saga The only thing
you could do as a law abiding citi-
zens of Trinidad and Tobago after
you witness a crime is a group
of you witnesses could hold the
criminals or criminal down until
the police finally arrive after being
call by one of you. As a law Abiding
citizen viligante justice or street
justice is against the law and could
land you in jail.
Crystal Clear Their social
media post are just provocative
and sometimes that lures sexual

Trinidad crimes ....just suggest-
ing. ...because the government an

Meera Lyn Yea right this case

something for a little and then

Greer Niamat What closure?

Natasha Mohammed Sad-
ly this too will be left unsolved,
swept under the carpet as usual.
Barry Telesford Solving crimi-
nal case does not stop crime.
Carolee Lewis Since she is a
foreigner maybe they need help
from the FBI to help solve this
Imagine the woman went to
music school in her country to
contribute and help Trinidad look

Look into women as well. This
is just a hunch. Some man may
have been flirting with her and his
woman got jealous. I know Trini-

"There's so many failures on
the way to finally making it.
But the thing is it depends on
how you look at failure. It's
really just a lesson learned.
Failure is not the end of the
line. It's more like, 'Great!
Okay, well we won't do that
again.' --- Biz Stone
