if you were a local and knew, or was aware, that someone could be one of so many criminals, you'd be scared to go to the police because you could well be approaching the 'wrong' person. think about that! THAT has to be at issue, all the drug dealings, weaponry must be known to the police on such a small,intimate island, it stands to reason. just who do you seek out to give vital information? not an easy one by any means.

Just seen the video report of these two attacks on Tobago Chanel 5 news and am quite disgusted that the local population continue to shield these criminals who continue to run riot on that rat infested Island.Feel very sorry for the law abiding citizens who face a very uncertain future until law and order is one day restored.You have a very long wait!!

More of the same,quite dreadful incidents. Agreed there is crime everywhere and that there is good and bad everywhere.Just seems to me that there is more bad than good in Tobago based on these repeated incidents. James Franks says 'NO THANKS'to Tobago

Just to clarify,the pensioner,a female aged 73 was apparently attacked and robbed in her own home at 7pm and the other attack,with the threatened use of machetes, was on a German couple and their children,while they were visiting a waterfall at 11am.Tobago sure is a great place to visit !!

Incresingly,desperate criminals are not only attacking and robbing tourists,often with extreme violence,they are now attacking innocent locals as is the case of the vile attack on the 73 yr old pensioner outlined in Tobago Chanel 5 news.Also,the wicked attack on highlights current concerns and confirms that Tobago is no longer a safe holiday destination.Be warned!!the German tourists

crime is alive and well on the island of tobago,it will continue to florish until good people decide they have had enough, at this time however they have not reached that point, or there are no good people on the island just criminals

AN APPEAL TO TOBAGONIANS said on Tuesday, Feb 7 at 9:59 AM

please give serious thought to the tourism situation in Tobago, which is causing huge business hardship, by giving up the criminals in your society to give confidence to police; only the minority of police is corrupt. PLEASE let them know, criminals would NOT help you and they are certainly NOT helping Tobago, that's for sure. Tobago has tremendous scope but needs to sort out criminality. don't be frightened, do the right thing, GIVE THEM UP1

Yes she was a local, and as usual with crime, the police will try to investigate, I dont think that the police will help with the issues that have been caused by breaking into the woman house and invading her privacy..
