    $63M New police weapons in Trinidad- BE NOT AFRAID

    Armoured vehicles similar to the ones seen in clashes between law enforcement and hostile crowds in some of the world’s trouble spots will soon be a feature of the assets of the police and army in Trinidad and Tobago.

    They are expected to cost approximately $63 million. T&T National Security Gary Griffith says "law-abiding citizens should not see the procurement of specially outfitted armoured vehicles as a threat, but rather as the country’s national security mechanisms at work."

    Is this the beginning of the militarization of the police force in Trinidad? Should citizens support this initiative by the government?

    unless Trinidad planning to takeover Grenada, or they fraid Venezuela take Tobago, you should be afraid.

    That is a massive waste of money.

    On the heels of the controversy over T&T Government's plan to purchase armoured vehicles for national security... comes word of firepower being brought in -- More than three dozen guns! But as of today no one can explain the apparently unusual way in which the guns were cleared on arrival.
