Karlene Sonders: You people re-
fuse to work with the police. Some-
thing happens, no one sees, and you
fighting police too by blocking roads
and burning roads. Now you're hos-
tage in your own community, wish-
ing the same corrupt police could
protect you We need the police now
more than ever. Right now D inno-
cent paying for the guilty.
Jesselle Jordan-Boodan: This
has got to be the best written article
from the Guardian in a while! Real-
istically speaking, the information
couldn't be more accurate;, it's a
sad state of affairs and residents like
myself are utterly and completely fed
up; and at the same time left without
a choice of moving forward in aim of
a better community!
Steven Downer: It's a Trini
thing....why act surprised?
Theresa Lia: A situation taken as
a joke, years later out of hand.
Robert Singh: Question. I read
most of the article. I have also read
more articles where the cars that are
being driven by a lot of these crim-
inals have tinted windows. Why is
it not against the law to have tinted
windows or is it?.
Elliott Washington: Interesting
Elenor Eli: Really good read.
Ryan Steinberg Jr: Terror not
only in Enterprise it's all over the
nation. In other countries the Motto
is "If you see Something Say Some-
thing." In Trinidad and Tobago the
Motto is If you See Something Say
Nothing. Support your local gang."
Rafiq Issa: We need to explain
"Drug war" to the population. Be-
sides the terror of Gang vs Gang, it is
interesting that the area is actually
being flooded with drugs for sale and
distribution given the geography and
enclosed nature of Enterprise.
Swanky Dougla: Drugs war ent
Haroon Mohammed: My take on
that article is the "residents" and I
will go so far as to say "law enforce-
ment" were all well aware of the
illegal activities that was going on in
that community for decades being
run by a man or people that although
they knew what he was all about,
he kept the violence outside of the
community. Now the violence has
hit "home," meaning in Enterprise,
the same people, who for years was
in "charge," have now been killed al-
legedly by the very same people who
grew up with them....the residents
are now feeling the effects of dec-
ades of lawlessness.
Rita Shira Ragbir: We are out of
control but I know my God is not out
of control fear God and turn from all
your wicked ways and I will heal your
land ,Lord take control...
Lynnet Hessic: A very good ar-
ticle. I am so sorry that decent law
abiding citizens are caught in the
middle of this utter mayhem. May
God bless and protect the innocent.
Thora Williams: A very telling
article, very deep for the reader, sad
Gemini Harris: Wow, this article
could be rewritten for east PoS as
well its the same thing ..... everyone
went to primary school together or
with a family member of someone
they are warring against now.......
this is a very well written article.
Kazim slams 'lazy'
Local Government Minister
Kazim Hosein is calling on chair-
men of the regional corporations
to ensure that their employees
do a fair day's work for their sal-
MrDexter: So Han After teachers,
regional corporation workers are the
most attacked workers in this coun-
try. H owever, there are many people
cashing salaries that they don't
earn. Is years I hearing about reform
and the workers are still required to
work a certain task like cut a "chain"
length of grass or extract silt from
the drain and place it at the side of
the road. If a worker uses a grass
cutter to complete his task of cutting
100 feet of grass then his day work
ends before it starts. Hence the old
policies of the regional coporation
need to be addressed. Couva Taba-
quite reg corp needs to get their act
Yash Ramsingh: Some of them
starting work 7am and by 8am they
home in their house or in the bar. I
know what I'm saying.
Uddhava Maharaj: Nothing new,
this is why all government institu-
tions never functioned properly.
Denise J Charles: Dats so true.
Rosanna Tiki Baptiste: I agree.
Robert Singh: I am 60 years of
age. This manner of what they call
"productivity" has been the norm
before I was born. Everybody knows
it, and it has become accepted, so
now they want to complain and do
something about it? Only when they
are cash- strapped they come up
Darrell Nagassar: Long overdue.
Iniath Mohammed: Privatisa-
tion is the way to go. Government
shouldn't be looking after grass
cutting, contractors should be doing
that. Will get more work done and
better and cheaper. I don't there is
any government in world who micro
manages grass cutting. We should
improve and expand the Cepep mod-
el.Maltha Bompartt: not only Cor-
poration workers, all government
places. Some just stay in longer hrs
and still do nothing, so I feel corpo-
ration workers still work harder.
Ryan Steinberg Jr: Not only cor-
poration workers, all public service
employees need to work for their
Annie Rampersad: And by
lunchtime nobody answers phone
there... As d sun come out,they done
wuk... What' are the requirements to
get a work there?
If you can't do
anything about it
then let it go.
Don't be a prisoner
to things you can't
