It is not unheard of that people stand outside of the National Blood Banks or, General Hospitals selling pints of blood for as high as TT$1500. What is sad about this is that the offer of a pint of blood at a price is made to people in vulnerable situations, namely, a personal or family medical crisis.
On this count alone, Trinidad and Tobago is morphing into being a callous and crass society.
Notwithstanding the aforementioned example, mounting evidence of our growing societal callousness and insensitivity are also demonstrated in reports of the robbing of dying or badly injured accident victims together with the robbing of drivers and passengers in traffic. These are cases of unscrupulous characters preying on the helplessness and vulnerability of other people.
