Crime starts with the little things. Cars drive through red lights, through stop signs, no signaling on lane changes--they can get away with it since there is no law enforcement and the next thing is real crime--look it up Crime 101.

ah, there's a ton of security in Waikiki. Cop cars on every block, video hotel security. But they can't be everywhere. So like anywhere else in the world, we have crime. But what none of the commentators have pointed out, Hawaii crime rate is by far lowest in the nation. So, no, we are not going to the dogs.
