Now Jesse James falls as T&T murders continue

Twenty-year-old Enterprise resident Jesse James was one of two weekend slayings, which took Trinidad and Tobago’s murder tally in 2012 to 358.

Elsewhere in Afghanistan, 294 United States soldiers were killed during that same time period. Anyone feel like draping a US flag over his or her shoulder and heading out to face the Taliban in a war-torn Islamic State?

It might increase your chances of being around for Christmas.

Perhaps the National Security Minister should spend less time stalking the homes of journalists, pouting at the National Council for Indian Culture’s guest list and sending veiled threats to activist Dr Wayne Kublalsingh.

If Jesse James couldn’t survive here, how safe are the rest of us?
