Instead of paying cops to watch construction workers digging holes we should have them walking around Waikiki.

I am saddened and ashamed hearing about these type stories. HPD cannot be every place all the time. Understood. Hotel security needs to step up. Security cameras are doing good, but must do better. Hawaii Tourism Association better start being Proactive, because your "bread and butter" revenue machine is starting to Sputter. Once the engine stops, your dead in the water. Maybe it takes unfortunate incidents like this to remind the Greedy Grinning Monkeys in Hawaii's politics and leadership(so-called), to get to work ensuring the safety of its Cash Cows.
