CSI or make believe criminal investigation is alive and well in the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS).
This shot is part of the well made up image of the TTPS, whose primary interest appears to be to look good. Weekly, we are exposed to these staged police shots of ganja hauls sprinkled with some street gun pick ups while the crime detection rate is abysmally low, the murder rate is spirally and driving is characterized by an attitude of survival of the fittest. Left unaddressed these issues will create a tipping point, when citizens will take take action. Such spontaneous response will be chaotic and detrimental to the entire country. If ever there was a time for “inspired leadership” that time is now!
