The politicians and the talking heads of T&T continue to offer the same solutions applied since the decade of the 1990s to the same problems still a problem in 2016. This should indicate to those talking heads that the solutions have not only failed but have in fact worsened the evolution of the problem. In 2016 we are now faced with collapse of state institutions and the same old is being sold once again. What is most disturbing is the resort to colonial barbarity as the knee jerk solution such as beating students in school and incarcerating them in facilities yet to be defined. But the usual whipping boy always comes up we as parents who have failed to raise law abiding children. Parents in T&T have been continuously blamed for the ongoing failures of politicians since the 1990s. You are doing everything right and necessary to raise your children properly you provide, you impress upon them the need for education and discipline and to follow the straight and narrow path. But whilst you are working hard to make ends meet and raise your children with loving care an organised criminal group wields illicit power with impunity over your space and has the power of life and death over you and your family. The politicians when they visit is when they want your vote then disappear the police enter with force kick doors in grab people and leave and its back to basics the Don rules with impunity. The impunity of the Don constantly sends the message to my children that their parents are imps powerless strugglers broken living by the pawn shop whilst my crew wearing brands as the latest Jordans and you wearing a cheap no name from Charlotte Street. In this reality in spite of all your effort one or more of your children will be tempted away and snatched from you and you are powerless to stop it. They blame us to avoid taking the blame that is theirs to answer for. Blame the victims and exonerate yourself. What I love to read is those who say they are privileged and well adjusted relate tales of their great parents but they didn’t grow up and live under the rule of the Don. When they call the police they come but others are afraid to call the police as they are convinced that they are in the dance with the Don. Remember death to informers. Every day is a lesson in powerlessness and being a multiple bitch to multiple masters. Since the 1990s what is going on in the schools now has been going on but now it is a great revelation a media frenzy as if it is brand new. The evolution of gangland has reached the schools and since the politicians failed miserably to secure the schools in the 1990s then in 2016 it is now Dodge city without Marshall Dillon. If any person in these schools are delusional to believe that they will strike these gang players in the schools and it is business as usual. To strike a gang member or the family of a gang player is an act of war it surpasses disrespect and you have in fact called out the member and the gang. Hope you the striker have your vest and AR-15. Those who intend to excise troublemakers and place them in a specific educational facility for them then you are creating a gang battleground where members will fight for rank and aspiring members will be bloodied and those who among them who can be persuaded to change will be consumed. This will be a gang remand yard. You cannot use your reality to solve problems that you are not part of persons who live the reality are the ones to guide not be silenced. But the entire media is dominated by those who don’t live the reality moralising for those who live the reality and persons who live the reality are silenced. That is why it done now. Time for me to go.
