And it continues…

While Acting Commissioner of Police toots his own horn, claiming serious crime is down, and marching with religious leaders for peace, it’s murder as usual in Trinidad and Tobago.

Those are headlines from just today, 19th July 2015.

I recall some years ago that the dunceys were saying that the murder detection rate was 20%. I estimated it then to be nearer 8% and lo and behold, I was right. In fact, the USA just confirmed it is somewhere in the region of 6% which is quite high for the dunceys. Until you realise that figure includes those murders that stem from domestic disputes and where the attacker is seen/witnessed/known.

In the majority of murders, like Dana Seetahal’s, there are no witnesses and thus, the dunceys are lost… my description is that they can’t find cascadoo in a bucket. If you think I’m being a bit harsh, think about it a minute. Over 400 murders a year, over 4000 in the past ten years and they have ‘detected’ less than 6%.

Of those ‘detected’ the ‘investigation’ is often so incompetent that the conviction rate is a staggering … 1%.

Led by a man who speaks as if he is completely illiterate, the dunceys have shown themselves, time after time, to be incompetent, immoral, corrupt, and generally a blight leaching on the financial blood of the country.

In another situation, a prisons officer was shot dead in Morvant. The duncey in charge, aside from making the usual dotish statements regarding crime, unrelated to this or that, no expected increase, etc. etc., amply demonstrated that the entire police service is bereft of ideas. Aside from ‘increased patrols’ and ‘road blocks’, they have no other workable ideas to bring crime down.

In reaction to the death of the prisons officer, his compadres are baying for guns to protect themselves. Which, as anyone with a grain of brain, will realise is a stupendously dotish idea.

Most of the deaths are unexpected ‘ambushes’. The possibility of having a warning, and getting out a firearm, and knowing who to shoot at, aiming and firing, is certainly almost 0%. Guns will make no difference except to put more innocent bystanders at risk, as if we didn’t have enough of them already from dunceys unable to shoot straight and abusing their power.

Oddly though, if you tell prisons officers they may be less at risk if they stop thumping on prisoners, who will certainly be looking for payback upon release, they will never see the connection. It is far more likely that thumping on prisoners is a ‘norm’ rather than an exception, and while it is practically a tradition in prisons, the said prisoners are now far more aware of their rights and resentment is surely growing for abuses of those rights.

Sadly, I foresee both situations will continue…
