Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : June 9th 2017 Contents An eyewitness yesterday said he saw
when an "almost lifeless man" was being
taken out of an ambulance by security
officers at the Port-of-General Hospital
and left in the hospital's carpark.
Annclaire Hutchinson I read this sto-
ry and I was in tears. I was so shaken and
messed up all day....is this how we will
be treated eventually? We have nurses
telling patients if they don't like the pub-
lic health care go and pay somewhere
else. We have nurses berating patients
and embarassing them. We have nurses
ignoring sick people in pain. And all our
prime minister can focus on is what mis-
chief he thinks the opposition is creating.
The opposition is doing their job....how
about you start doing yours?
Efia Lewis And nothing is going to be
done about that man's death. No one
is going to be held accountable for his
death nor lose any sleep or their jobs
over this. So let's just move to the next
wrong thing that seems right....
Natasha Mohammed Oh gosh, look
how heartless we are becoming. What
Ria Cedenio What could make offi-
cers do such a thing? We can blame the
government all we want, but if we don't
help each other it would only affect us.
They had no right to put that man there.
Irresponsible and disgusting people. But
there day will come.
Victor Legerton Sad to say, but hav-
ing worked in the said hospital in a very
senior position, I observed that unlike
foreign hospitals, the doctors and nurses
become immune to sickness, suffering
and even death of patients. Some would
say they are heartless, I prefer to say
PM happy as Govt
beats court actions
"It ain't gonna happen!"
That was Prime Minister Dr Keith
Rowley's declaration yesterday, as he
warned the Opposition that Government
will strenuously fight any further moves
to stymie his Government.
Nara Adhama It's early days yet...
Julia Clarke It ain't gonna happen. Put
that in allyuh pipe and smoke it.
Nerissa Dqueen Agreed!...time to take
the bull by the horns and send a clear
message to all the detractors who don't
put country first, but rather their own
self interest. Whether they be in Gov't
Vidya Mahabir J Acting on the State's
behalf but going against what the peo-
Kishore Khillawan "It ain't gonna
happen"? Sound like a true dictator!
RiaandRodney Arjoonsingh Dicta-
torship coming soon...stay tuned. We
would be worst than Venezuela.
Kanhai Christian Listen, we not
saying we don't want to pay proper-
ty tax and it's unfair, we are saying/
pleading that you educate the masses
and don't charge us so much so soon.
It's really hard for some of us, Mr PM!
Please understand this! We will pay it,
just ease up on the amount. We have
to pay property tax!
JSC on mental health

Some 400 primary and secondary
students are on suicide watch because
they are experiencing some degree of
mental illness, with primary schools
pupils as young as seven facing such
Harry Ramharack The mind is a
misery-manufacturing machine. We
have to fix the minds of our children.
Our educational system must impact

Melina Hutchinson Parents are re-
sponsible for instilling those values in
their children, so don't be blaming the
teachers. They are just there to reinforce
the values learnt at home.
William Ganness Well, Trinidad and
Tobago, this is your doing. What do
you expect when over the past several
decades government policy driven by
international progressive values and
ideas---including. liberalism, feminism
and the welfare state---you have suc-
cessfully made hundreds of thousands
of children fatherless. It was Barack
Obama who said that the single big-
gest disaster facing the Afro American
community was the lack of fathers who
lived with their children.
Tension at Law Faculty
The decision by The University of the
West Indies to re-appoint the dean at
Faculty of Law's St Augustine campus
is being challenged by law lecturers on
the basis of its legality.
Anastacia Kalkman Jaime Ramkis-
soon reading this was really interesting,
like a reality show. Why all this drama?
Imagine this at Cavehill! I can't even!
Lou Sandy Anything done in the dark
will one day come to the light.
Link Lalsingh Professor Antoine
is a very distinguished lecturer and a
dean who has showed impeccable skill
in running the Faculty of Law, not to
mention she has guided the lives of
many students to success. I remember
she told me one day never to give up
on my dreams. It is very sad to see her
leave like this. Having said that, keep
your personal squabbles to yourself it
is about the benefit to the faculty and
what's best for students.
