Keeping the community safe

Dear Editor, 

It’s that time of year again! Time to lock all the doors and keep the kids under lock and key. 


Because the government of Samoa is going to release into the community the murderers, sexual predators, thieves and other criminals from Tafaigata Prison for their annual holiday home! 

Could they not just pay the prison staff holiday rates and lessen the anxiety some like myself have? Perhaps my safety is of little concern to them?

I charge that the government of Samoa is responsible for every theft, rape, violent act or murder, committed by a released prisoner over this approaching holiday period. 

I pray there will be no such incidents. 

I would sue the pants off the government if I were to fall a victim! (not that you would win anyway – ask the Attorney General or Police Commissioner)
