This is a monument to a notoriously cruel, racist figure.

Thomas Picton spent 5 years in Trinidad as governor and during that time he instigated, ordered and oversaw many despicable acts of cruelty, torture and summary killing—murder.

These acts included his ordering the torture of a 14-year-old girl, Luisa CalederĂ³n, using a method known as 'picketing'.
