Emergency Medical Services transported the victim in extremely critical condition to a local hospital, where he later died.

allie you CLAIM to be a student at UH but are noticing "more violent crime in the homeless population"? Where has your head been? Violence has ALWAYS been a problem in the homeless population! Despite you having been here, what did you say...4 to 5 years you haven't noticed? Haven't taken it upon yourself to show your concern and volunteer to help them get back on their feet (at least the ones that WANT TO)? It appears that your thing is to just talk trash about others and hold them accountable but not you? In the years that you've been in the islands have you done a single thing to make things better?? NO!!! All you ever do is spew SH*T!!!

TSA? How is that statement even relevant? For everyday carry, there is no limit on blade length in the state of Hawaii provided it isn't a switchblade, dirk, dagger or balisong. http://knife-expert.com/hi.txt
