Balisier Brain

Citizens of Trinidad and Tobago need to take more responsibility for their personal safety, Port of Spain mayor Murchison Brown said yesterday when asked to comment on the recent killings in the capital city.

In a telephone interview yesterday, mayor Brown said: "We are all concerned about people being killed in the city but people need to be more vigilant and alert of their surroundings.

"There is security in the city but ... the issue is not about security because security can't be everywhere and can't see everything. No one knows the hearts and minds of men. Anyone can decide within a moment to harm another, so as individuals we have to be alert to what is around us."

The man has the intelligence of a balisier flower!
