Impose state of emergency in Trinidad, too

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I am a Trinidadian and I wholly support the action taken by Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness. I hope and pray that my country's prime minister, Keith Rowley, takes the same action with the crime and violence taking place in Trinidad and Tobago.

You do not have to be a rocket scientist to take action and bring an end to what's going on in my country. If the police cannot quell crime, you put the country under martial law and use the army to root out every one of those criminals from society as you remove weeds from a garden.

God bless Prime Minister Andrew Holness, and may he continue to guide him in leading his country. Holness is to lead without fear but with love for his people.

ULRICH LEMAITRE
