NO HELP FROM PASSERS-BY
With crime in T&T almost a part
of people's daily lives, it was busi-
ness as usual for pedestrians and
motorists passing along the South-
ern Main Road, Rousillac, Monday,
as 50-year-old Krishna Girdharrys-
ingh was being hacked with a cutlass
by a man described as a menace in
the community. Nobody lifted a fin-
ger to help the man as he was being
Annie Luces Omg, how can I ever
come to visit with all this going on?
Kyron Browne The only thing
I could think of to help a man that
is being attacked by another with a
cutlass is to run the attacker over...
then you have to face the legal con-
sequences of doing that. Other than
that how could you help?
Pamela Jagdeo A man been at-
tacked with a weapon, and someone
must help? How? Call the police? Or
go and get killed?
Azariah Mohammed Like I said,
if I had bounce him an he got severe
injuries what would be the new story
in the law books?
Atiba Brebnor I understand
where u coming from, but I don't
think anyone would have just run
into a situation like that.
Shawn Ramkhalwhan People,
yea d police got him, but u know
what, it's a bailable offence, he will
be out in a short time.
Sarah Dawn Dookran-Moham-
med Wow...intent to cause grievous
bodily harm; attempted murder;
premeditated, aggravated assault;
wounding with the intent to kill.
Man charges like wow. I want to see
the bail on this.
Jewell Lawrence But ah sure they
stop tuh video tape. Steupzz
Paula Mohammed I don't think
anyone feels that one person should
have approached, but maybe lots
of people could have, at the same
Triciah Gomes You all saying
intervene and help and whilst I un-
derstand this, just remember we're
only a few days away from the story
of the young man who intervened
and helped and got his death too. On
a perfect day I would love to assist
anyone in need but you still have to
think about that choice you are mak-
ing because you could get injured
and in worst case lose your life...sigh
Novana Forde What a horrible
act to watch. I felt sick and helpless
and could understand how those
present felt. I would have been
screaming my lungs out for him to
Malick Ali The last time I read
the news a boy try to help a woman
and her man drive over him. Well boi
you see what happened when u try
Leah Isaacs They saying say
drunk or sober mine yuh dam busi-
ness. I not meddling at all. To me the
public have all rights like myself not
to intervene. The way the crime is
no, no, no!
Neal Gokool Who want to help
have to use excessive force and when
it done you have to look for a lawyer.
That's how Trinidad law works---
waste a time.
Strauss Wylde With current laws
and attitudes, the good Samaritan
has everything going against him.
Court okays liquidators
The Government has won its bid to
appoint a pair of provisional liquida-
tors for CL Financial (CLF).
Gerald Mejias For nine years the
company has been operating at a loss
or has it? Something is not right. I
understand the government needs
money but if the sale does not bring
in the fifteen billion what then?

Appeal Court would be handling
Dad, son killed
An employee from the Port-of-
Spain General Hospital (PoSGH) and
his father, a retiree who also worked
at the hospital, were both ambushed
and killed by gunmen in Laventille
yesterday, while responding to a call
of an accident along Picton Road in-
volving one of their vehicles.
Marsha Simpson This country so
frigging disgusting now...too many
pests walking around like wild wild
west. Lord heal this land, please, so
our children may enjoy growing up
in T&T. May they RIP.
Jackie Baptiste Lavantille, stop
Petal Annan Sookraj I am so
tired hearing this. Yesterday it was a
couple who was returning children
from a birthday party and their car
was "unfamiliar" to the area. Today,
people can't even disagree with-
out becoming fatal. So many more
innocent people are dying. Breaks
my heart and makes me angry all at
once. Criminals have us in living in
constant anxiety and fear. Forget the
government, where have our morals
and values gone? No respect for life
or family... it's an awful hopelessness
we deal with daily.
Cashyy Cashybaby Cayenne
We really need more than prayers to
keep this country safe.
Kervin Balbosa Sounds to me
like a road rage killing related to the
accident, and of course it being in
Laventille, it had to be very brutal.
What a shame, so you can leave your
house to go down to an accident
scene and arrive before police do.
That speaks volumes about the in-
competence of the TTPS. And that
road especially should always have a
Harry Ramharack Another day
in sweet T&T....except for relatives
of those murdered and the con-
cerned citizens. T&T was ranked 79
out of 163 countries this year by the
Global Peace Index. The least peace-
ful nation is placed at 163. We are
heading in the wrong direction.

BUILD DAM ON
In light of the flooding that takes
place each year throughout the country
in the rainy season, it might be a good
idea to consider the construction of a
dam in the northern range.
A dam would allow for the control of
the flow of water in the catchment are-
as in the mountains and by controlling
the flow of water the authorities could
reduce the excess flow reaching the
Caroni plains that leads to the perenni-
al flooding in this area.
A dam would also be a source of wa-
ter in the dry season and could provide
energy in the form of hydroelectricity.
There is no need to be reminded that
the country presently relies on a source
of energy that is gradually diminishing.
On the negative side, a dam will have
environmental and ecological conse-
quences which will have to be evaluat-
ed by professionals.
However it should be noted that a
number of quarries presently operate
in the northern range, inflicting ter-
rible damage to the environment but
they seem to operate undisturbed.
On a recent flight to Tobago, I was
saddened by the destruction seen from
the air, to the environment by quarry
operators. I counted at least ten open
pits where all the vegetation cover
was removed and the land was visibly
So if they are allowed to do this, a
dam can certainly be considered in
light of the many benefits that can
