Social media users who post gory
and irresponsible videos, com-
ments and photographs to create
sensation and instil fear and panic
among T&T citizens beware!
please show the Rowley adminis-
tration that we are in 2017 and not
the dark ages. Rise up to this kind of
dictatorship in the making. It is your
right to have social media. Freedom,
Dwayne Nurse---Initiative great!
But what about news media that also
contribute to crimes. For instance, a
murder occurred during the day and
there are witnesses, why in God's
name would the journalist put the
witness at risk by broadcasting their
names. Secondly, not every crime
plan or initiative is to be broadcast,
support, jail time for people who
post any kind of blatantly fake news.
International or local.
Anan Sahadeo---Just now we
would have no rights. Every day it's
taken away slowly.
Mar P---Citizens have a right to
know all the crap going on in the
hahah, yes don't show the world the
crime...more and more like a Fidel
Jason Woods---Can't deal with
crime so next solution don't post it
for anyone else to see it
Carolyn Lezama Rivera---I am
sure there's a whole lotta educated
people up in here...it just galls me
that you people haven't got a clue
about what's going on around you,
not even a little common sense, to
realise what the AG is talking about!
Laws to catch white-collar
criminals coming soon
Attorney General Faris-Al
Rawi has vowed to roll out
a "number of reforms" that will
not require a three-fifths majority
to be passed in Parliament soon,
saying "enough is enough" and the
country's laws need to start work-
ing for citizens who have been
expressing concern about crime,
corruption and fraud.
Asher Gray---Well, the whole pri-
vate sector have to go to jail.
Johnny Cage---Talk is cheap,
thanks for this, I was having a rough
morning...What a comedian Faris is,
he not only sexy nah, the man have
Lee Lee---I think I heard this b4.
Pavel K Quamie---Soon is not
fast enough. But given the low de-
tection rates tell us what will make
these laws different.
Kathleen Gonzalez---We are
slowly losing our democratic rights.
This is real cause for concern.
James Cern---Why not with im-
mediate effect like raising of fuel
prices? Or is imposing taxes all the
government can do with immediate
Jemma Hoyte---Yeah! Law com-
ing soon to a theatre near you.
Man up and deal with it
Women's activist Diana Ma-
habir-Wyatt says T&T's
women, particularly young women,
are an endangered species.
Allison Charles---To which men?
Well if they choose their men wisely
they won't be having such problems
would they? Bless.
We all live our lives indeed by the
choices that we make, don't we all?
What we allow is what's going to
continue...Learn to walk away...
Love you, put you first.
Nathan Marcano---Such an ig-
norant statement to make. You don't
ever really know someone until
you're living with them, my friend.
You can date a guy for 5 years and
still not know him well... People
Jason King---This Woman need
to wake up...The culture today is
yuh have a big chain and saying
something and yuh body have a six
pack---girls running yuh down. So by
extension woman encourage the be-
havior of these men simply because
that kind of culture brings a certain
type of lifestyle with it.
And if these young men have no
role models in their lives like a fa-
ther, because most of the fathers
dead, how can they become men?
No one teaching anybody properly.
