CARIBBEAN: Trinidad labelled as a ‘violent society’ by acting Commissioner

WILLIAMS--1-JAMAICA OBSERVER – Acting Police Commissioner Stephen Williams has lamented on the crime rate in the twin island republic, stating that the society is a violent one.

“Trinidad and Tobago has become a very violent society. We express violence for the simplest things. Imagine a man arguing with someone he knows over a gyro and it ends in murder,” said Williams in an interview with the Sunday Newsday newspaper.

Since the start of the year , 17 people have been murdered .

“Counting the murders is painful – we should feel pain when anyone dies.”

The Acting Police Commissioner revealed that despite the record high number of gun seizures – 685 guns for 2015 – the murders continued unabated and proposed what he calls “collective efficacy” where the entire society must come together to deal with crime.
