Pahoa man charged with killing landlord

By Star-Advertiser staff


Hawaii County police have charged 36-year-old Pahoa man with killing his landlord.

Jason Russell Jump was to make his initial Circuit court appearance in Hilo today.

Jump was charged with second-degree murder Tuesday evening. He remains in the Hilo police cellblock in lieu of $250,000 bail.

An autopsy conducted Tuesday revealed that James V. Johns Sr., 54, of Nanawale Estate, died of an injury to the brain caused by blunt force trauma.

Johns' body was found in his home just after 5 p.m. Sunday. Police earlier Sunday had responded to a report of a disturbance at the home.

If you search the news archives for incidents in Hilo versus incidents specific to Pahoa or Puna one could establish a trend that Pahoa and Puna have substantially higher rates of crime and violent crime in general, both in absolute terms and more importantly by population density.

nimi - so you are saying also that Pahoa stinks and that allies' broad generalizations of residents of the area as "nothing but a bunch of pathologies" as accurate?

I think a comparative analysis study would be more appropriate across a sampling of communities across different demographics and socio-economic stratification. I don't think the article you quoted is sufficient. A comparative analysis would more appropriately depict trends: e.g., higher or lower correlation of certain factors with rates of crime.

niimi - so you're saying that allie's broad generalization describing the residents of Pahoa as "nothing but a bunch of pathologies" is accurate? So because of the actions of a small element of a community, it deserves to be labeled as such? If allie's statement were in fact true, you would never have read about it as it never would have been reported and everyone else would have assisting in covering up the crime. Using the same line of "logic" as allie the article is an equally valid indicator that ND residents are criminal in nature and there is no positive element in the community.
