Man allegedly threatens to shoot product demonstrator

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 06:46 a.m. HST, Sep 19, 2012

Police arrested a 42-year-old Waianae man Tuesday who allegedly threatened with a handgun an 18-year-old man who was demonstrating a product at the older man's house.

Police said the householder became upset during the demonstration and allegedly threatened to shoot the man.

The gun was allegedly not registered, police said.

Patrol units responded and arrested the 42-year-old on suspicion of first-degree terroristic threatening and posessing an unregistered firearm.

The man was later released pending investigation.

The gun was either registered or it was not registered. There is no middle ground or "allegedly". The SA uses this word way too often when just a little investigative reporting could paint a clearer picture to the public. Hard to believe that I pay for this. My bad...

Allegedly is a anti-lawyer word. If you use it all the time, you don't have to worry about a lawyer suing you.

Could be rifle from before they had to be registered. Hawaii laws have changed over the years and many long guns are grandfathered.

I wonder what the product was that the 18 year old was demonstrating? Was it a vacuum? Maybe durable knives? That would of been nice to know. I wonder what made the 42 year old so mad?

If it was a Kirby vacuum cleaner, I would not be surprised at the old man's actions.

My first thought when reading the headline was "Kirby salesman." Several years ago, I had a Kirby salesman bang on my door, he was rude and disrespectful. I didn't let him in, but I told him if he came back I'd call the police. He said, "Please do." I will NEVER have a Kirby vacuum cleaner in my home, even if one was offered to me free of charge.

Never let a Kirby vacuum cleaner salesman into your house to demonstrate the vacuum. You may want to shoot him.

I remember that incident. It happened in Waialua. Victim's family couldn't collect life insurance because lack of a death certificate.
