Criminal Justice Injustice

On 7th November 2016, the Trinidad Express newspaper published an article entitled LOST IN JAILwritten by journalist, Nikita Braxton-Benjamin.

After reading this story, we - as a people living in a civilised society governed by the rule of law and being a place where every one has rights - cannot continue to sit by and allow this and other similar kinds of injustices to exist and continue. Being in prison does not mean that a person has to suffer any type of injustice that the system decides to mete out.

This kind of injustice has to stop! I am fed up and frustrated with this unjust nonsense.

If you are aware of any case where a person suffered police brutality, was wrongfully arrestedmaliciously charged and/or prosecuted or is being unlawfully imprisoned like 42-year-old, mentally challenged Terrence Prince, please contact me directly by e-mail, or preferably, leave a comment below with information to reach you.

This is going to be Trinidad and Tobago's version of the Equal Justice Initiative.
