CRIMINALS DEMAND $50,000
Unable to give into a $50,000 de-
mand from criminal elements, East-
ern Engineering and Marketing Ser-
vices gave up a contract for less than
$1 million with the Programme for
Upgrading Road Efficiency (PURE).
Candace Ess: What manner of
madness is this! Sorry contractor
Fred Williams: If they keep this
up, no one will be working in T&T.
Brian Parker: Criminals control
Theresa Lia: Now we know...
bring it into the light.
Devon Devon: Ok, so at the end
of the day, nothing has been done to
remedy the situation. So much for
Monkeytown Nissan: That going
on long time.
Marlon Jamurath New: The tail
wagging the dog in T&T.
Narry Singh: You know how long
that URP/DEWD/PURE was created
for that/for the criminal elements to
make money --- "community lead-
Larry Ramcharan: So why gov-
ernment officials always keeping
meetings with these thugs? And its
really impossible for police to be on
the site 24/7.
Ryan Steinberg Jr: Extortion is
the new name of the game. It's like
living in Somalia with warlords and
no laws to curb them.
Usha Basso Kissoon: Govern-
ment have to get rid of the gangs.
They gave them too much power.
Soon they will take over Trinidad.
Kenny Supersad: This happen-
ing over 20 years.
Sean Ramnarine: And the sad
thing is we keep spending more
on national security and the TTPS
would not make an effort to do a
sting operation and arrest these
thugs and pests, but would rather the
innocent citizens flee the site. Bunch
ah lazy cowards.
Moruga man walks
A young Moruga man said he
reached his tipping point over the
country's crime situation when the
body of murdered WPC Nyasha Jo-
seph was fished out of the Gulf of
Paria last week.
Rakie Lewis: God bless you sir,
all it takes is just one person to make
a change. The country is in a severe
state of emergency and sadly the
leaders are all asleep---until it hits
Andrew James: Ain't no use, no-
body but God could stop this now---if
Trudy Ramsamooj: Why is he
alone? Shame on us, these roads
should be flooded with people
walking with him and giving him a
stronger voice. Why things remains
the same in this place!
Christian Ramirez: Gather
around him; rally round the West
Theresa Lia: He is leading the
way. If the Gov't were to cancel Car-
nival 2018, there would be an uproar.
We must roar now. Or remain vic-
Makeaba Hamlet: You're my in-
spiration, Mr Stoute, be the change
you wish to see. Much love to you,
Oma Ramdass-Maharaj: Keep
going. One day change has to come
and you never know who can start it.
Ian Mark Mangaroo: Just im-
agine those who we chose to lead will
turn a blind eye. Kudos to him...
Richard Joseph: Nicely... This
country needs young people who are
willing to be leaders and champion
the good rather than the evil... Too
many of ours nation's youths are
followers and followers of nonsense.
Well done, sir.
Kimara Charles: We should walk
with him not only cheer him on.
Melina Hutchinson: You could
walk from now until thy kingdom
come and nothing will change unless
people's mentality and how they deal
with situations change. There are too
many demons walking around the
AG aiming for
swift justice as
T&T moves to
Attorney General Faris Al Rawi
says implementation of the death
penalty cannot be done in an irre-
sponsible and halfway manner. He
said for that reason the Government
has presented a legislative frame-
work which will accelerate the pro-
Renata Joseph: Who are they go-
ing to hang, ghosts? You have to first
catch the criminals.
Andrew James: When is all this
going to take place and it's not guar-
anteed to work. What plan is that, A,
Visesh Lall: Um...they know they
have to catch them and successfully
prosecute them before they can han-
dle them. Maybe they should work
on the first two bits first. I dunno.
Just my thoughts.
The mother of a teenager who was
beaten unconscious by a group of
students from the Mayaro Secondary
School wants Education Minister
Anthony Garcia to explain why her
daughter was made to apologise for
the incident and then suspended.
Natasha Rosenthal: Let a woman
call a man a name. Let the man beat
her unconscious and leave her in a
drain. Let the magistrate make her
apologise to the man. Tell her that's
it's not nice to call people names.
That she look for that. Hear what
people would have to say about that!
Lystra Francois: Hmmm... Really
that's what it come to now. U are
the victim and u have to apologise...
