Criminologist Raises Concern Over Proliferation of Illicit Guns in Trinidad and Tobago.

Criminologist Darius Figuera is suggesting that the vigilante justice being seen in Trinidad and Tobago is an expression of frustration by the public.

Speaking on CNC3 this morning, Mr. Figuera said the proliferation of illicit guns in the country has led to an increase in the crime level.

This increase he said has led to a change in how conflict resolution is dealt with.

As a result, citizens are also affected and have decided that enough is enough.

    The crime Situation is far beyond enough. It is horrible. One reason is the lack of Vision which People in power have. Weapons reach Trinidad every day and the coast guards are unable to protect the borders against weapon shipments. It is more than necessary to unite Coastguard and Police in order to make the law inforcement more efficient. A proper coordination and cooperation between a coastal Police and their respective Partners ashore would improve the Situation. The coastguards at present Status are superfluous because they are not effective enough to prevent weapon smuggling.
