It's either crime or tough action
In response to Ramesh Lawrence Maharaj's statement that "we have a police state" I wish to state that that is more comforting to hear than "we have a country infested with crime and ruthless criminals prowling the streets" and often seeking out innocent citizens even within the sanctity of their homes, raping, stealing and murdering them.
If Mr Maharaj thinks the ordinary citizen likes being held under the siege of bandits, rapists, thugs and killers then he has to think again.
He needs to take another look again at the crime statistics, at the number of children, women and elderly people who are being beaten, maimed and murdered for their few pennies before he condemns the action of Mr Warner.
The recent incident in which a man choked to death on his own boxer shorts is typical of the actions of ruthless beasts who have no respect for human life.
Can one imagine the suffering of sisters Kim and Salisha Griffith, being chopped several times and left to bleed to death?
The recent furore between the Highway Re-Route Movement and the Government over plans to build a highway to Point Fortin through Debe and the destruction of a camp is not an issue to stop the plans for better national safety and security.
The entire nation should not be made to pay for the action of the Minister on a totally unrelated issue. Mr Maharaj needs to think about the utilitarian theory and stop trying to gain favouritism while the nation suffers. I say, give the new Minister a chance to clean up this mess. We want our country back.
