Top law enforcement officers in Hawaii honored

By Associated Press

Hawaii's top law enforcement officers are being honored by a coalition of agencies in the state.

Honolulu Prosecuting Attorney Keith Kaneshiro won the Law Enforcement/Security Coalition of Hawaii's top award at a banquet on Thursday. A letter from the coalition says the award is presented for outstanding service and activity that benefits law enforcement, private security or criminal justice.

Kaneshiro congratulated other honorees by saying law enforcement is a truly noble profession.

Other honorees include an NCIS special agent who investigated a case in which three Pearl Harbor shipyard employees were accused of trying to sell 30,000 pounds of government scrap metal worth about $1 million.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Beverly Wee Sameshima won an award for earning a conviction against a couple who ran a large cockfighting operation in Waianae.

What has Keith Kaneshiro done in the Prosecutor's office besides hiding behind his desk and doesn't exhibit any trial skills whatsoever for his deputy prosecutors to emanate as they have lost some rather high profile cases. At least , the last Prosecutor went to trial and showed amazing skills as a prosecuting attorney but Kaneshiro is just a lackey politician. Nothing more and nothing less. We don't need politicians in the Prosecutor's Office. We need people that are skilled in trying cases so we can get convictions when it counts.

You'd thing some people would be embarrassed to accept such an award without proving without a doubt that they stood up and above their predecessors and their peers.
