How can any society accept this barrage of crime without challenging the powers that be?

Dear Editor,

I am dismayed at the level of disregard for human lives and the moral decay of a society that has come to accept that murders, rape, assault on women, accidents, and suicides are the new way of life in Guyana.

How can any government, any opposition party or civil society accept this barrage of crime without challenging the powers that be?  There is no excuse for this level of assaults both fatal and critical.  These incidents of lawlessness are perpetrated across all ages, gender: from pupil to adults; even against a woman who is 103 years old. How can the president try to solve global warming but yet can’t deal with the violence and disregard for human lives at home?  Fellow Guyanese, you have a right to demand that action be taken to curb this trend. If this is not addressed at the legal, economic and psychological state; Guyana will, if not already, become a socially decayed society – a country where every human right is violated.

It is also shocking to see that there is no attempt by any religious institution to deal with these issues and challenge the authorities.

Every human being should value life as a God given right.

When will Guyanese wake up from their slumber and speak truth to the powers that be? You can be the next victim.

Yours faithfully,
Steve Hemraj
