    The mighty Trinifeak 2 years

    Minister Dillon is right the crime rate is skyrocking high. However, what is his vision? Obviously he has no vision, but at least good intentions.Of course firearms reach the country via containers not being checked and also by boats entering T&T waters illegaly. One solution is make the coastguards as part of the police service.Technical equipment is needed for the police and the coast guards to fulfill their tasks. Money can be saved by cutting the allocation for foreign trtade. Imports of food should be prevented if possible and whre it is unavoidable these items should be taxed with an import duty. The money being saved here is at least half a billion TTD. With this money better equipment can be bought for the coastguards, police and customs. The customs must have equipments to screen all the containers properly.Everything should be done in the presence of survailance cameras. Bribable officers have to be dismissed immediately. Mr Dillon now you know you have a long way to go in order to make T&T a better country.
