By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 02:20 a.m. HST, Jul 06, 2013

Police and prosecutors charged a 27-year-old Hawaii Kai man  after he allegedly threatened a couple with two samurai swords.

James Kaumeheiwa is charged with two counts of terroristic threatening. His bail was set at $30,000.

Police said the incident started with argument between the suspect and a 55-year-old man at 11:13 a.m. Wednesday at a Hawaii Kai home. During the confrontation the suspect threatened both the man and a 73-year-old woman with two samurai swords, police said. Officers arrested him Wednesday in Hawaii Kai.

Threatening Laws are stupid and should NOT be a Crime. In most cases it would be, he did this, and the other say, did not. How can words and gestures be proven? Under our Laws, just claiming it did will bring an arrest. This means that even if nothing happened, one can be arrested. Bad Law. I'm assuming, it was in his house. The swords are there because it is his. Maybe they saw it on a display stand, go to police and say that they were threatened by him with the known swords. (he did not) Maybe they were interested in the swords and he showed it to them, they go to police and say that he threatened them with the swords. (he did not) May be they threatened him first and he threatened them back. (who knows) May be he all out threatened them, (who can prove it?) In his own house, he can pick up any object of his that he wants. To be arrested simply by someone saying that another person was "saying" words to some effect in his house to me, is the real Crime. Pity.

Maybe you weren't there and really don't have a clue what happened. Maybe you have never been threatened by someone holding a dangerous weapon. Maybe the suspect has a history of assaulting people. Maybe the suspect is a mental case and could have very easily killed them. Maybe you would feel comfortable having people walk up to you and threaten to kill you while holding a knife, sword or gun and have no consequences for that person.Maybe you are out of touch of reality? Maybe.....

For the suspect to be charged so quickly (not released for further investigation) probably means the case was compelling and they probably thought he was a danger.
