Comedienne Nikki Crosby has
been left "traumatised and violated"
after she and her husband, Gerry
Clarke, were among a group of peo-
ple robbed at gunpoint by masked
bandits at a store in Diego Martin,
Nikki sorry and sad to hear, thank
God you all are alive.
Ravi Sant: Welcome to the jungle,
honey. This is what the population
endures on a day to day basis.
Kimberly Ramdeen: Glad to see
you both are alive.... thank God.
Jamie Pandohie: Heinous crimes
will continue because the TTPS is
spearheaded by an ACTOR...(Acting
Commissioner of Police) who always
seem to think that everything is hon-
Isheba Karanza: Curious, what
is the Government doing about vic-
tims that experienced crime? What
kind of mental health services are
Adil Ali: It seems it's more than
the average Joe is affected by crime.
Gemini Harris: The more crimes
you prevent better than the crimes
you solve! No wonder this place in a
mess smh. Well okay that was your
thinking and guess what, it didn't
work, so how about putting more
effort into detection, gathering ev-
idence, arresting, incarcerating and
winning the case?
Taramatie Maharaj: Nikki Cros-
by is someone I love. Her shows
onTV as well as her live plays. But
don't get me wrong, sometimes
when things happen to popular peo-
ple is only then they can truly know
how it is, and I hope she will try
through her shows to make a differ-
ence by pleading with youths not to
become a criminal but to study and
be someone decent.
Shane Carlton: That just sad,
is everybody getting rob .... I guess
the politicians will react when it hit
home. Meanwhile citizens will feel
the brunt of the underworld.
Ambrosine Rose: Thank God you
are safe, so many people were not so
fortunate. To God be the glory.
David Daniel: Sorry to hear about
this... but this is how most of us al-
ready feel. Welcome to Trinidad
Keith Bachu: Thank God you OK.
Let's stand together and take back
our country from these criminals be-
cause police not able.
Kavida Reyes: OK, I understand
his point about dealing with the
root cause of the problem and that's
great. But we cannot discredit that
families who do a darn good job at
raising their kids are being torrment-
ed daily in this country. Therefore
we need to find them and make ex-
amples of them so as the deter others
from thinking crime is a well-paying
job in Trinidad and Tobago.
Vinette Huggins: I was just
about to go there at that same time
but changed my mind as I was ex-
pecting the plumber, GOD is awe-
One man charged with
having ransom money
A Picton Road Laventille man has
been charged with being in posses-
sion of ransom money connected
with the kidnapping of San Fernando
businessman Gregory Laing.
Power Pack: Swift justice! Wow
if only for everybody.
Roger Alexander: It is not a mat-
ter of swift justice for the rich.....it
boils down to the fact that the men
made mistakes in carrying out their
deed, leading to arrests being made.
Thela Pantin: Ransom money is
Denny Darius Ramcharan:
They're gonna make him squeal like
ah lil piggy!
Kenny Supersad: Another good
boy from Laventille. Show us his NIS
and PAYE numbers.

corrupt officials at Town n Country,
Regional, Health and Drainage.

Kenrick Purcell: What was done
nationally from 2013 exactly? First

common sense and stop signing
nonsense documents because some-
one say so or it sounds nice.
Azard R Mohammed: No Gov-
ernment have ever paid any atten-

Take a look at all the illegal quar-

country doesn't prioritse environ-
Anderson Khan: Man we can

Richard Trestrail: Sincerely hope
they catch what they are hunting for.
Jack Shear: If a galvanized stadi-
um can increase in price from $373
million to $1.3 billion then why can't
52 acres of land increase by $100

med: We'll see how much of a witch
hunt. Hope HDC doesn't catch a fire

that caught fire alone! I hope HDC
beef up security in their records
department. Remember what hap-
pened to WASA's?
