70 cops escape death
Griffith says officers' lives on the line

Police Commissioner Gary Griffith continued his call for more public support for the police yesterday, as he delivered his address for the Prime Minister's Independence Day toast to the nation at the Police Administration Building, Sackville Street, Port of Spain yesterday.

Griffith said over the past year, there were over 40 incidents where police officers were shot at and called for greater understanding and compassion for the police as they protect and serve.

"Over 70 police officers could have been killed in the line of duty, had it not been for the grace of God and their training. Thankfully not one was killed over the past year and it says a lot, but it wouldn't make headline news. I ask all let's start adding some care, compassion and support to the men and women who put their lives on the line on a daily basis for this country."

Griffith also announced that there was a five to 10 per cent decrease in every major crime, including murder, for the year thus far when compared to the same period last year.


The murder rate is above last years total??????

As the victim proceeded to walk to her home at around 1 p.m. a man in a black car approached her.

She told the Express the man exited the car, walked up to her with an ice pick with a yellow handle in hand and told her "hand over the bag or else I'll stab you".

The woman gave the man the bag.

Orphaned boy promises murdered mom: ‘I’ll make you proud”

The eight-year-old boy who became an orphan on Monday when his father killed his mother has vowed to make her proud.

“Don’t worry, I will make you proud, Mummy.” the tearful child said while being comforted by relatives yesterday.

Relatives did not tell the boy his father was found dead and he believes he is still on the run.

His father, Harricharan Ramsundar, 42, was found dead near the family home at Phulo Drive, La Brea Trace, Siparia, hours after he killed his wife, Neisha Cyleane Sankar, 29.

A close relative, Curtis Larode, told Newsday, “He knows that his mother was killed by his father, but he does not know that his father was found dead. And at this time we are not going to tell him right now. This child is still traumatised, he is going through so much. He loved his parents and now he keeps saying all he wants to do is make his mother proud.”

Victims fight back: Bandits stabbed, shot

Two bandits who tried to rob a Kelly Village family got more than they bargained for when their would-be victims turned on them, stabbing one of the bandits and shooting him before he escaped.
