Do you think the politicians of T&T and the non-elected politicians of the national security apparatus learnt anything from the Paris 2015 and Brussels 2016 attacks? Do you expect them to have learnt anything? Do you think that they have unearthed the IS network in T&T and dismantled it? Do you think they have “persuaded” a member or members of this network to reveal the identities of those who left for Syria, those sleepers waiting to be awakened in T&T and those who support the network in T&T? Why expand the remit of the SSA but still deny its employees the power granted by being precepted? Why deny the SSA the power to deploy and strike with a duly constituted adequately trained unit to intervene, arrest and to interdict? Why must the SSA generate intelligence then wait for another agency to act? Did the politicians learn from Brussels 2016? When will the politicians get around to bringing the criminal justice system into the 21st century? When will the Office of the DPP be fully staffed to ensure it accomplishes its constitutional remit? When will the politicians deal with a prison system trapped in the colonial 19th century? When will the politicians deal with the constipated criminal courts as they and the non-elected politicians talk zero tolerance that constipates the courts but the politicians expend no resources to deal with the expected constipation? When will the politicians and non-elected politicians stop viewing the remand yard as a holding bay for a social problem a holding bay that breeds predators who leave the holding bay and prey on us not the politicians? That is why if and when IS decides to attack the energy infrastructure of T&T who and what is going to stop the attack? The same politicians and the non-elected politicians?
