Tecia Henry found dead

I heard it on the radio today and saw it later on the 7 o' clock news.
Really sad state of affairs.

Now the news report mentioned that the mother of the deceased child is on some pending drug related charges. It's strange how the dead body of the child was found not far from where she lived.

Is this some sort of message that is being sent?

When asked if there will be reprisal killings, the father of the deceased child stated on camera that others will cry just like he and his family are doing now. So basically he said in a technical way that there will be reprisal killings and yet this man is allowed to walk freely.

I was reading some responses to this topic on a Trini Forum and it seems that some people believe that the PNM is to be blamed for this child's death. Others on this forum firmly disagree with this view and are of the belief that no politician can be blamed for the murders and that it is the citizenry that should be blamed. They believe that corporal punishment and other such measures is what will straighten out our society. What baffles me is that some of them firmly believe that the ruling PNM is not to be blamed at all.

Last I checked, the ruling PNM has been in charge of this country and its resources for the past seven years or so. Shouldn't they be held accountable for the sad state of affairs we are in today?
