R.I.P. Edward Thomas

Very few of us in TnT have remained untouched by crime. If we have not been the victim of a crime, we know someone or we know someone who knows someone who has been the victim of a crime.

On Friday morning, Edward Thomas was killed at his home in Carapo in what has been described as a “case of mistaken identity.”

Although we did not know Mr. Thomas by name, Mosquito and I certainly knew him and his brother by face as they did a number of odd jobs in our neighbourhood. Both were the friendly sort with whom we would exchange the occasional greeting.

Yet another son, brother, father, human being has lost his life.

How many more lives will be lost before we (citizens of Trinidad and Tobago) finally get IT right?
