I a bit confused. Is Reynold carrington we talking bout? I mixing him up with a footballer who used to play for either W connection or Jabloteh and got shot and killed in a robbery at his apartment. If dahs not Reynold carrington....who it was den? Tallman?
"A FORMER Trinidad and Tobago Under-17 national football coach and an ex-PNM councillor, yesterday appeared in the Point Fortin Magistrates’ Court for possession of a gun and ammunition.


Reynold Carrington, 28, who once coached the Under-17 football team; his father Edison, 55, and sister, Heather, 32, pleaded not guilty to possession of a .38 Smith & Wesson revolver and six rounds of ammunition, when they appeared before Magistrate Betsy Ann Lambert-Peterson. "

Maybe andre from POS, BC in POS especially in the EDR a lot ah ppl walking the streets armed, or have ah tool in dey yard.

ppl there does be telling me how man does be walk in the streets wid big gun brandish in they hand bold and brazen in broad day light. man bathing by the stand pipe with dey gun in one hand and the bucket in the next'

 i think it's all where yuh @ on the island, and of coure it was a blanket statement, but i understand where he coming from.                           positive.

 :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

good points JC....but yuh know if he could be telling we dat (and nuff ah we know better), can you imagine what is being told to the average foreigner/potential-visitor who asks him bout crime in TnT?
i does get ask dat question and ah does make it meh duty to tell dem the truth. of course dey could get ah random lock-neck and rob anywhere eh, but as long as dey stay away from places (including those you mentioned) where de odds ah getting robbed/killed/etc real high, dey go be alright.

From the T&T NEWSDAY

TT losing kids to crime

Tuesday, March 3 2009

ARCHBISHOP Barbara Burke, founding member of the Ark of the Covenant Spiritual Baptist Church, yesterday lamented that on a daily basis, this country is losing its children to crime and violence.

“We all know the youth are the future and daily we are losing them. In Laventille, seven and eight-year-olds are walking around with guns and this has us deeply concerned. Someone needs to educate them and show them that this is not the right way,” Burke said.

She made her feelings known during a press conference at City Hall to announce various events and activities the church would host as part of celebrations for Spiritual Shouter Baptist Day on March 30.

One of the symposiums will deal with crime and is titled: ‘Crime : A multidimensional issue’. This seminar which takes place on March 24, at the Empowerment Hall in Maloney will focus discussions on assessing the high reaching impact of crime in society.

“We cannot afford to give up on these youths. It is when we lie down with our arms to our sides and do nothing, that things will dramatically get worse. You can see Government is trying hard, with the blimp and all this security. These days, police are through Laventille almost every 20 minutes but it is like it not enough, more needs to be done,” Burke said.

Students from several schools throughout the country have been invited to attend this symposium.

Just Cool,
             What he is saying and what everybody know but fail to come to terms with,  is that the the AfroTrini males in the EW corridor have gone beserk and will stop at nothing to achieve their goals(drugs and money) by any means necessary.  But Trinis think that the violence is contained in Morvant/laventy/San juan areas and will not affect them are in a dream world.

The current administration is of the idea that the bandits will kill out the other bandits and they will get tired. Just as long as the stay in there turf. But the situation is out of hand and they are unable to deal with it. Look what is happening in Mexico. The violence isolated to Juarez but it is having a drastic effect on that country. Don't be surprise if they asked for US troops to help them. The Mex. situation is what finally happens when you attitude is "nah, that can't happen here, it is just a passin' cloud"

 :rotfl: :rotfl:   Omar, yuh like too much shit!  Wha dey shoot de blimp down with?  ;D   Ah agree with de point that de whole of Trinidad not so fuh real, but ah feel very disappointed how scared and limited we forced to live in we own country.Big man heading inside early, yuh cyah go check a lil bad ting out of yuh area with yuh mind at ease, have to hide if yuh happen to pull a lil raise from somewhere, yuh woman, sister, daughter cyah walk nowhere lonely cause man looking to hold dem down. Is not exactly how de media portray it, but it very facking far from a paradise at this point. De rich people establish dey own society in gated communities, dey own social places, and dey stay isolated, segregated from de rest of trinidad for de most part.

Fantastic,
               Do you blame the rich people for that behaviour. If you were rich you more than likely will be doing the same thing, especially if you have children. Look I don't blame TT for panicking now, because we go bawl later.

I understand where he coming from, but he too painting wid ah broad as brush! BC it have nice yutes in laventille and EDR who not in that and they are the mojority!!

when he say it's only little black hen chickens who wilding out, may be just as bad as what andre said but no body eh go say nutten to him BC it have nuff ppl here who feel that way and hold that view to be correct!

allyuh here seem content only to blame the pawns for facking up the country, but i doh here no body talking bout the knights , rooks , bishops , king and queens!

remember them lil boys have bosses , and their bosses have bosses! most ah dem big boys is just or even more guilty for fackin up the place.

i've said it before and i'll say it agian , i from a family who in love with crime , and when i go home my cousins and dem does come wid dey big car tuh carry me fete and beach and all kinda places, but i does cry busy tuh get out of it.

 them men does be in all kinda big boy house in westmorring deigo and la horhett in carenage.

 they have all kinda big boy indian and syrian friend calling dem and dey does be driving all kinda nice car belonging to their so call rich friends.

now dem boy is little snatt nose duncy fellas who turn rich just so and building big house and dating all kinda pretty hoity toity woman, gyul who dey couldn't even look @ when they was broke. now tell me, how they get so much ting out of nutten?

who rich whiteman and indian does socialize wid little duncy fellas from behind the bridge?

i not saying dem lil boy right to committ crime , no way! i against that! but dem boy is not the only ppl fackin up the country, i beleive we should start sharing the blame BC dem rich boy does never get implicated! not never! and is time dey do!

Breds yuh losing meh! as for the indian remark, i did not get the impression you were an indian, even though you might as well been, since yuh have no regard for yuh heritage by using such degrading words tuh discribe yuh ppl.

my yute you cyar worry bout what other ppl who look like you doing! you just have tuh hold yuh head and go though, and fack what ignorant folks have tuh say!

remember this, most ah these same yute men yuh looking down on didn't have no one to fend for dem, half ah dem father less BC nuff men leave trini in the 80ies and never look back, the other half had no father and crackhead mothers, and that's a fact.

it had a yute man from my hood in the early 80ies, his mothers was a crack head , his step father was ah stone cold wicked man and a crackhead as well, yuh know i used to watch that yute and saw he didn't stand a chance in hell of being a productive member of society.

that same yute right now is one ah the biggest gangsters in trini, as a matter of fact he belong to one ah the biggest gangs on the island.

do you know how many yutes yuh seeing and hearing bout that share the same story!

my yute in case yuh don't know, our ppl ( african ppl who was brought from africa tuh cut cane, coco,  and pick cotton) are the biggest victims since jews who were displaced by emporer titus who sacked isreal and jereuselem in 70 AD!

you think if ah ppl was denied education, stripped of their culture , language, and history, made to asume a strangers identity, forced to work for free,their children was sold as live stock, deprived of any family structure, set free without any form of rehabilitation, or place of abode after 370 yrs of degrading servitude,

no job, no land,no family structure, no access to education, no money, set back a thousand yrs! could such a ppl be fully functional and productive?

 do you think such a ppl can compete with ppl who were given land , ppl who were not deprived of their culture, ppl who held power in the society,ppl who had a 400 yrs head start???!!!

breds it's a miracle that african decendants survived this tribulation, DR king him self said it! "it's a miracle we survived this atrocity"!

say thank god you had good examples and ppl to see you through, and made it their business to provide you with good care, an education and proper morals, say thank yuh JAH JAH and hold ah medi, instead of condeseding on ppl who did'nt stand a chance!

i not making no excuses for them bad boy dem, no no no! BC there's no excuses for lawlessness! i'm also aware there are fellas who came from good families and had proper examples, who choose badness! but those guys are a small minority.

most of them bad yutes are crack babies with no proper examples!

as far as other the ppl watching black folks and laughing all the way to the bank,they are responsible for a lot of crime, but does hide behind their scape goats.

believe it or not , the colonial british are also responsible for a lot of BS in the world! take forinstance the middle east crisis,the british could've brokered a better deal before leaving the middle east , but opted to keep the tention high to retain some kinda controll in the region.

they did the same in the west indies and in indo china.

breds yuh need tuh educate yuh self on the dangers of colonialism instead of making superficial analysis, what yuh see on the surface is not nessesarily what is, but just a fraction.

if we're willing tuh do some reaserch, we will be suprise tuh see what we will discover! read fellas like CLR james ,DR king, dr. henrich clark, kuame turre, chancellor william, dr. ivan vansertima, read man! and stop guessing!                         positive.

This thread gone deep into it, dred. This question will seem outta timing based on what passed before, but I have to ask. Reading that article on the Woodbrook robbery it stated that Woodbrook was an "upscale community". I missing something? It have a part of Woodbrook that upscale? I not saying the place run down or anything, but I think upscale is a generous description of the place... I feel like someone from South Bureau write the article.

Great respons by the police to chase down they ass and at least arrest one of them. Good job. See we still have some decent police people in T&T.
See Deeks I just saw the positive in that....not the negative aspect.

Woodbrook is a middle class mostly black who own small businesses or upper level civil servants. Lots of sports and cultural icons of TT either were born there or found their niche in that area. Right now the area appears to be shrinking because businesses are buying out a lot of the home owners.
