Island Turf Wars, Chicago Style…
By Nick Ashton, Founder, CEO, Tracometry Group of Companies.
Gangs, just like business, fight for their position in the marketplace and will, as we know, use any legal or illegal tactic so they can dominate and win. I use Chicago as the precedent and continuing example simply because it is!
It seems another area of the world is now using the same gangland tactics honed on the streets of America, it is Trinidad and Tobago. Who would of thought that the island off Venezuela, South America would have a serious gang problem among their midst?
The Trinidad Express Newspaper, reported by Gyasi Gonzales states, “even with a visible police presence in East Port of Spain and Laventille yesterday, gunmen played cat and mouse with patrolling officers, killing a 16-year-old pregnant girl and three other young men in what is a battle for control of “turf”.
This, in a bid to secure lucrative make-work contracts.
Police said a gang leader from Laventille is responsible for the killings of Nyam Antoine, 16, of Duncan Street, Port of Spain; and later that day his cousin, Rasheeda Gomez, also 16, who also lived at Duncan Street.
The murder spree began at 5 a.m. while Nyam Antoine was asleep at his grandmother’s apartment off Upper Duncan Street, Port of Spain.
Relatives said he suffered from sickle-cell anaemia and was never healthy.
Gunmen dragged the boy out of the house and residents said when they heard him screaming they called the police.
One resident claimed he even told two officers on patrol about what was happening. Residents claimed they were ignored.
Antoine, however, was first badly beaten by the gunmen.
Residents say the boy was so scared he soiled himself when two guns were pointed at him. The gunmen then shot him 15 times, killing him on the spot.
One woman claimed it was a Laventille gang leader who was responsible for these attacks in East Port of Spain in an area known as “Rasta City”.
“They want to run the town with Muslims, but we don’t want them here,” she said.
The murder toll stood at 240 up to last night for the year, according to an Express tally.”
This is a scenario that Tracometry People is all too familiar with! It is an insurgency/gang problem and must be treated as such. The mention of Muslim connections in controlling a city is an initial problem that cannot be seen to grow. Seeing this type of turf war reminds us of the conflicts on the streets of America, Brazil, the Caribbean Europe and Middle East rolled into one.
It cannot be dealt with in normal means. This is why Tracometry People has been successful in understanding and dealing with the situations worldwide in such a forthright manner. It is all to do with intelligence gathering at the highest level from the streets, the Atmospheric Noise Collection is the difference.
Residents of Trinidad and Tobago deserve to be able to live normal lives and not worry about these insurgents, gang members who are intimidating their daily lives.
The Tracometry People Change Effect is ready to work within the communities of Trinidad and Tobago and bring the culprits to justice. If it is left alone and unsolved the insurgents/gang members will take a further grip and cause more death and heartache and exacerbate the situation.
It starts on the streets and will finish in the Justice Courts, allowing residents to live the normal island lives they deserve and demand.
