    Bloody weekend in Trinidad

    CMC

    Posted: 7/13/2009 11:20:12 AM

    PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad – Police are searching for the gunman who shot and killed a 52-year-old mother, who four years ago had witnessed her daughter’s murder.

    Police said that the gunman, pretending to be a customer, had entered the mini-market operated by Judy Badrie in Petit Valley, west of here yesterday and shot her in the head.

    Badrie was supposed to have testified against the man who is accused of killing her daughter Melissa on July 3, 2005. In that incident, another one of her daughters Sue Mara, lost her left leg while another jumped into a nearby river to escape.

    Police are also searching for the killers of two men in the volatile Belmont area in what they believe were reprisal killings of gang leader Ricardo 'Docs' McCarthy, the main suspect in the murder of 10-year-old school girl Tecia Henry.

    Henry’s killing had led to an outrage within the country, particularly after a post mortem revealed that she had been strangled and her body dumped under a house in the Laventille area.

    > Police said that Joel Phillips 35, and his uncle Devannan Rajcoomar 51, were killed late Saturday night.

    Lawmen are also investigating the murders of 26-year-old Kyode Peters, who was shot dead in Laventille, along the east-west corridor on Friday night and 62-year-old pensioner, Rudolph Contrero, whose partially burnt body was found in a car in Rio Claro, south of here on Saturday night.

    Meanwhile, hundreds of people participated in an anti-crime rally at Skinner Park in San Fernando, south of here yesterday, with organisers warning that the country had a murder rate per capita of 31 per 100,000 people.

    They said Trinidad and Tobago had the same murder rate as Somalia, an African country with no recognised government, which has experienced scores of military coups.

    More than 290 people have been murdered here so far this year.

    It's like two different planets. The sad part is, the current ruling party couldn't win an election if it weren't for the people in these depressed areas.

    Go figure...

    Ok, so the populace in these depressed areas is sizable part of the overall population?

    Would u say that the levels of economic inequity as increased over the last 10-15 years? or remained the same but rural folks of low economic status have moved into more urban areas or rural communities have gotten urbanized?

    i recall one febuary there had been 50 murders since the NYD of that year. thats 25 murders a month, 290 in month 7 doesn't seem as bad. Still horrific though for a population of 1.3 mill
    Whether there is a moral component to being less clothed than an European, I'm not getting into because that's a personal thing.

We get half naked in the bright sun, soak up some vitamin D and jump to a rythm because as human beings, rythms entrance us; they harken to our mothers' rhythmic heartbeat in the womb. Its a natural, healthy experience.
