Breaking News Out of Trinidad!
Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar addressed the nation tonight and announced a limited state of emergency in the crime infested areas of the country. The State of Emergency goes into effect from 12:00 midnight tonight after the President signs the document making the declaration effective immediately.
This means that the military will now augment the police service and will patrol the crime hot spots with a mandate to seize and arrest persons caught breaking the law. This act by the government will be severely criticized even though it was expected for some time now. The country is heading in the wrong direction with a spate of killings that is mind boggling. We can only hope that the government and people of the country can put a stop to the mindless killings taking place every day. If they can't then only divine intervention could help Trinidad!
