Time for talking is over …”DEAL WITH CRIME NOW”

Spread the word
When Dr Keith Rowley was campaigning during the 2015 general elections, he had the answers as to how to deal with crime.

But since he became Prime Minister, he has been wanting. No ideas as the murder tolls escalates and crime is rampant.

He has three Ministers of National Security, including one being a former police officer. On Wednesday, he sent two of his Ministers in the troubled areas of Laventille, Beetham and Sea Lots.

Was it a public relations stunt?

Not satisfied with all that he has asked, Rowley makes another attempt to deal with the crime problem.

He will meet with heads of all national security agencies at a National Security Council (NSC) meeting on Monday to discuss the country’s crime situation.

Heading the list of issues to be addressed by Rowley, who chairs the NSC, will be the Anti-Gang Bill and what benefits the country has obtained since it was proclaimed last month.

At Thursday’s post-Cabinet media conference, Minister of National Security, Edmund Dillon, spoke about the Rasta City and Muslim gangs who have infiltrated the Laventille district.

Dillon said the main issue between these gangs was retaliation, for which they had no reason.
He added, “So there is a lot of senseless killings taking place in our country, senseless to the extent that even bystanders who don’t belong to any gang whatsoever are being caught in the crossfire.”

However, he said the police must be hard on those who possess illegal guns.

Dillon stated, “There would be a heavy law enforcement approach to treat with those elements who continue to disrupt our societies and communities by bearing illegal arms and it reach a stage where there are random shootings now.”

On the anti-gang legislation, Dillon added, “I can say quite categorically it will reap benefits and that is straight from the Commissioner of Police.”

He said people have already been arrested under the new anti-gang act but could not give a figure.
“That is as far as I am aware.”

Communications Minister, Stuart Young, said Rowley has asked for meeting with heads of national security agencies.

He added, “These are some of the questions we will be asking the police service when we meet with them on Monday because we have the same questions as you. We are not the ones who go out there.

Part of the discussions we expect to take place with the NCS is getting the answers.”
