Guns Don't Solve Crimes, People Do

"Why We Are Losing The War On Crime"
It’s funny how words shape human thinking, how we see things and how we respond. Trinidad and Tobago is a militaristic society. Citizens accept the presence of police officers in full battle gear topped off with a bullet proof vest and AK47 in parties. That's normal.

How many police officers lives were saved by these vest? Law enforcement efficiency is equivalent to a display of fire power. The justification is that the criminals are all armed and dangerous so the police must also be more armed, (and more dangerous). A local arms race.

Somebody should whisper in Mr. Tibbs ear. He seems to be more concerned about his image than getting results. Coming from Canada he should know that big weapons are only useful in full all out fire fight and not on normal days in the crowded city or at packed parties. 

Are they winning the war on crime? 

Apparently not, because now the government is deploying army personnel; are we in a state of emerge…

As the world turns the only time it will truely be recognized is when there are drastic food shortages; not before. If the same study was done 50 years ago and extrapolated the population growth; it would have been sadly inaccurate. Unpredictable events like World War one, two and the Vietnam war could not have been taken into consideration. The culmati…

We Can All Learn From This

The following was shared in an email and I liked it so I'm sharing with you. Ok, I wiould admit it's not perfect but very appropriate.

An award should go to the Virgin Airlines desk attendant in Sydney some months ago for being smart and funny, while making her point, when confronted with a passenger who probably deserved to fly as cargo.

A crowded Virgin flight was canceled after Virgin's 767s had been withdrawn from service. A single attendant was re-booking a long line of inconvenienced travelers. Suddenly an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped his ticket down on the counter and said,
"I HAVE to be on this flight and it HAS to be FIRST CLASS".

The attendant replied, "I'm sorry, sir. I'll be happy to try to help you, but I've got to help these people first, and I'm sure we'll be able to work something out.."

The passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so that the passengers behind him c…
