Trinidad and Tobago to Resume Hangings

Via CrimProf Blog:

John Jeremie, the AG of Trindad and Tobago, told Parliament this week that he will resume hanging convicts on death row as soon as they exhaust their appeals. Jeremie said the hangings are necessary to fight the recent upswing in crime. "The Government recognises that our people have grown tired of plans, talk and discussions of the problems ...today the Government states in forthright and unambiguous terms that we are at war with each and every criminal in Trinidad and Tobago," said Jeremie.

Jeremie also stated that if the courts intervene, the AG's office will do everything in its power to hang every person on death row.

    thanks TL, for pointing out to me another sh*thole i'll never visit. anyone who speaks about hanging people with that much enthusiasm is disturbed and has no business being nightshift janitor, much less AG of a nation.
