Many people living in Trinidad and Tobago are holding their heads and bawling or wringing their hands in apparent surrender to the criminal and gang element. We have had all sorts of solutions, except they are not working…and the criminals continue their rampage up and down the country.
Criminals of today seem soulless, unsympathetic, wicked, and uncharitable, as manifested by the boldness of their criminal activity. Laws do not form part of their vocabulary and law enforcement is an alien theory so, police officers seem not to be a deterrent to the criminal element as seen in recent actions.
Somehow it appears that all the various remedies have failed or are failing. The big question therefore is why? From a spiritual point of view, we must accept the realisation that the country is moving further and further away from God.
