Jun 15th 2009 2:13AM I am a Police Officer and I live in trinidad and tobago and I will tell you the Police and Amy are involved in criminal activites. Mind you not all are corrupt but the majority are. It was said by people in the spotlight that the present government, Peoples National Movement used a criminal gang to help win the last elections by hindering voters from voting. Upon winning, the gang leaders, or "community leaders " as called by the dishonourable Patrick Manning (prime minister) were supprisingly killed one by one. Kidanppings, human trafficking, rapes, murders and other criminal activities are prevalent. The health sector is in a mess, people in the south of the country, which generates all the revenue (Oil & Gas) don't have basic utilities : continous water supply, roads and in some instances electricity. Corruption is prevalent. Just recently the Environmental Management Authority EMA, who is supposed to seek the communities interest gave approval for the construction of an Alluminuim Smelter Plant without the consent of the residents. The prime minister said he is going ahead with the construction of the plant since he knows best, even though residents would have to do periodic cancer screening tests.If you are a foreigner don't come to Trinidad and Tobago, you may never leave, or be found again.!
