Im happy that the documentary isn't about us. That said, *sad face*. The trinis have been having serious crime in the last couple of years it just isn't widely known. Drugs always the drugs, sigh.

ETA I didnt know the Trinis gave communities other "nicknames" which are actual places too, cool!
      I may not like the words from their PM's mouf 95% of the time but, she's female so they get props for that.

TnT is very serious and no place to be all willy nilly

It's one of the more developed islands, lots of industry and yes lots of crime.

I've been to one of the communities where the police simply can not go, and it was very real. Never felt that level of palpable fear anywhere else.  We were ok, only because of the person that took us there.

But it's the best island for shopping and manufacturing contacts, in my experience

I've never been to Trinidad, but being from Grenada I always told that it was dangerous.

you'll get this kind of dynamic whenever there are the very rich and the very poor

AND where there's a hot commodity that the poor can access

For too many if you don't juggle there's nothing else to do to generate a similar income 

You need income to grease the wheels to start a business. The application process to sling dope isn't as stringent 

The way i see it, the best way to stop drugs and the resulting crime is providing a better alternative
