Players Play I Coach
(Trinidad Guardian) Over the past four years, the month of January was proven as the bloodiest month in each year, and this year seems to be following the same trend as four murders were committed in first nine hours of the new year.
The victims were identified as—Brandon Khan, also known as Chinee and Jundallah, of Enterprise, Chaguanas; retired police officer John Ramkissoon, 59, of Gopaul Trace, Longdenville; Miguel Simmons, 20, a man only identified as Nic and Mark Bascombe.
ACP Crime Irwin Hackshaw, in an immediate response to the bloody start of 2018 said “The boots are on the ground.”
He assured that the police will continue to keep working on trying to keep the murder rate down.


“Our vision for 2018 is that, as it was last year, but we will put in that extra effort this year. We didn’t do too well last year but we will keep on pushing…the boots are on the ground and the police are on the ground,” Hackshaw said.
The first incident took place shortly after midnight while Khan was liming with friends at Goodwill Street when when gunmen opened fire on the group.
Khan and five others were shot. Khan died while undergoing treatment at the Chaguanas Health Facility. Police said he was shot six times. The names of the five wounded people weren’t released up to press time.
At the scene yesterday young men in the area were reluctant to comment on the incident but admitted that this was a “sign for them to look at protecting themselves by whatever means necessary.”
Neighbours, who asked not to be identified, described the scene as the “wild, wild west.”
A resident said that Khan, who was often involved in confrontations with police officers, was the “main target.”
Another resident said she returned from church shortly after midnight and saw people lying on the road, “just blood everywhere. The men came shoot up the group and Chinee attempted to run home but collapsed.”Hours later, police were called to the scene at Gopaul Trace, Longdenville, where retired police officer, John Ramkissoon, 59, was found dead in the garage area of his home. He was chopped to death around 3.30 am after an argument with a neighbour. He was repeatedly chopped to the face and his skull was fractured, police said.
A suspect, in his early 30s, has been detained is said to be assisting police in their investigations. The man, a father of three, is a mechanic and electrician by trade. His relatives described him as a “hard worker and friendly guy.”
Ramkissoon’s daughter, Shelly Anne, 35, said her father was visiting neighbours wishing them a Happy New Year.“We really don’t know what happened but there was an argument and when my mother and brother came out daddy was already on the ground. He spent the night going around and just drinking and liming,” Shelly Anne said.
She said her father worked in the T&T Police Service’s for 30 years and retired from the Guard and Emergency Branch. “My father was a good person to everyone and he was just enjoying his retirement,” she said.
The third murder occurred at about 7 am after Miguel Simmons, 20, was shot dead at Seventh Avenue, Malick, Barataria. The fourth murder occurred two hours later at Upper Mendez Drive, Champs Fleurs.
The man, who was only identified as “Nic,” was driving a grey B-13 when gunmen opened fire on the vehicle.
The driver crashed into a concrete embankment. Police said the injured man got out of the car and attempted to run but was chased and shot dead.
Relatives at the scene said that it was not a good time for them and did not comment further.
Bascombe was killed outside a children’s party in Bagatelle, Diego Martin shortly after 5 pm.
He was shot by the occupants of a passing car and was taken to the St James Medical Centre where he died.
Police said an automatic weapon was used in the attack.

All these islands all a fcuking Cesspool of crime and corruption........these Jokers in Jamaica pushing Sandals, other all inclusive, etc, yet, fail to address the record number of murders that now have shifted to the Major toutist areas and acting like ...Jamaica, No problem, they should change it to Nuff Ras Problems.......


The PM and the corrupt elected officials refuse to talk about the death-penalty, that is what is needed in these islands.....


Who in the right frame of mind would claim they want to move back or retire in any of these islands......just total lawlessness, even in little St. Kitts, shit is out of control....sad all around.


IMO they need to start hanging some ppl....it seems they fear no laws on the books.

A female calypsonain friend of mines in T&T is about to release a calypso on this very same topic of hanging so look out for the song, its called "Pratt and Morgan". I will post it in Soca Chat as soon as it is released.
 
thing is them politicians don't care. the killings usually only affect a certain demographic, the 'ghetto yutes'. Them politicians look down on that part of society so they could care less if they kill each other. The solution to these problems will never come from the government. Yes they will come up with token gestures to save face, but never trully try to solve the problem.

The communities have to be realistic about changing it themselves or it will only get worse.

In them countries if you have the right name or the right money, there will be 'technicalities' with the court case and you will get bail. By the time the case call again you done leave out the country on a fishing boat. So it is in dem place dere.

Clearly that is not the case now if you are following closely.....


In Jamaica, they are targeting store owners now, more or less anyone they feel have money.......


They have not start outright robbing toutist yet........but it is ghetto yutes for the most part killing off each others!

Maaaaan, the communities will never ever be able at this point in society change these criminal mindset, you need capital punishment and shoot and ask questions later to let them know you not playing....

Same thing in Trinidad.....they have been for decades attacking the 1% , kidnapping, robbing,etc......


Yet still the politicians there haven't done anything too.....

They won't until they start killing a couple of them you will see how fast they implement laws on the books such as having an illegal gun, death penalty for fellony, setc.

All these places are just a cesspool of crime and corruption......

The moral, decency in these Islands have all broken down !

Just posted this in Soca Chat so thought I'd post it here as well as it deals with hanging and reducing the murder rate.

New Calypso Release by Morisha Ransome for 2018 dealing with the inability of the T&T govt to hang anyone despite the law on the law books because of the Privy Council ruling in the case PRATT & MORGAN which set an impossible 5 years timetable to hanging anyone on Death Row ...

This one is definitely Calypso Monarch Finals material seeing that crime and murders is the number one issue plaguing T&T right now!

notorious saga

Sagattarius
The whole family infrastructure is in shambles in Trinidad and other parts of the Caribbean. I can't tell you how many young fathers lives have been snuffed out and the household is solely handled by young mothers. Gone are the days where even if a father figure weren't in the household you had some of the elders in the communities to show some kind of guidance. The elders nowadays are the "so called" "community leaders" known as gang leaders. The blind leading the blind.

You have law enforcement doing drug bust in one part of the country and having their boys selling in another part of the country. Coast guards, Customs, Soldiers all in racket - renting and selling gun. Government officials and their sons/families are untouchable just like the mafia. The posh neighborhoods are also untouchable, the big shots that's bringing in the guns and drugs shaking hands with those in authority "lawyers and judges". even some of the big corporations taking bribes and deals with the drug runners, you have ambulance, maxi taxi and buses moving drugs from one area to the next undetected. if you try to choke off the side money these people making you'll end up sleeping with the fishes.

Why implement laws and regulations if it's going to clamp down on my side gig? that's the mindset of those in charge.

Trinidad is a disgusting place filled with criminal elements. I always advise people to never visit there. They are the cesspool of the Caribbean.
