(TRINIDAD EXPRESS) — One hundred and fifty-seven murders have been committed for the year so far, just eight fewer than those recorded for the corresponding period last year.

The country’s alert state was moved from amber to red by Police Commissioner Gary Griffith last Friday due to a recent increase in murders, the Buju Banton concert and the Easter long weekend.

However, the criminal element still managed to run rampant, snuffing out the lives of at least nine people between Saturday and yesterday morning.

At the concert shortly after he began his performance, Buju addressed the issue of murders directly, saying, “Youths, watch yuhself otherwise yuh will end up like manure under a tree that bears fruit that nobody wants.”

Later on he sang “Murderer”.
