I live in Waikiki and I only go out at night with a group and avoid the"groups" of young men who just gather on the street corners. Too bad we don't have the bicycle police when Obama was here.

Hawai'i liberal laws won't lock them up, they'll be out before you know it to do it again.

Please donate an additional $1000/yr to the state treasury to fund your tough on crime stance. We already lock up more people than any other country in the world. We lock up 4X more people per capita than "police state" China. Maybe we need to lock up 5X, or 6X? Either way that costs money, so get out your checkbook.

eoe, the problem is we lock up the wrong people. having a stick of marijuana should result in a ticket not prison time. lock up the violent creeps, others on house arrest with leg monitors, REAL community service, (cleaning up highways, ditches, parks, etc.) would be sufficient for these non-violent criminals. others, prison for a long time.

Can Hawaii bring the "Chain Gang" system to use on criminals here ?? No room at the jail, so they should do their community service for all to see.

Another news site listed their names and said a 7th person was involved. Come on SA, list their names so the parents, relatives and friends know who these fine young gentlemen are. Maybe then the parents will know their sons aren't the "good boys" they thought they were.

The names are on KHON's website. Anthony Hawkins (23), Paul Kaaialii, Jr. (23), Brett Palermo (20), Keanookanalu Feliciano (20), Cody Gaceta (21), and Kyle Harvey (21). I bet their families will blame the victim and claim that these guys are loving sons and brothers who would give you the shirt off their backs...everybody loves them...they're always trying to make people laugh...blah, blah, blah. This needs to be tried in federal court as a hate crime. State court is a waste of time.

According to another news site: The six men arrested for robbery were released early Sunday morning pending further investigation. My thoughts: Why were they released? Those six thugs are probably now hiding at a friend's house. I seriously doubt that the police will ever find those six thugs again.

What further investigation needs to be done? The six were caught and then released. They should be forced to pay restitution to the man the beat up. Now he can't even work due to his injuries and may end up homeless. This is cruel and outrageous!

Before we pass judgement we should first find out more details on the story. KHON interviewed the victim and also interviewed one of the group of young kids. Both interviews are on the KHON site. The kid had a iphone video of a portion of the fight, showing the victim as the aggressor in the video. Unfortunately there isn't much to go on but there are still of a lot of questions. The 25 year old victim said that the locals were in their truck and yelling obsenities at him before stopping and getting into a fight. The local interviewed didn't explain why they stopped their car and got out. The video is only one sided, didn't show the entire altercation. KHON should have also asked to see what was on the kid's phone to see if there is more to the altercation, who videos a fight but a witness or someone involved, maybe the kid wanted to video them beating someone up and only showed the portion to make it look like the victim was the aggressor. I think the truth is somewhere in between but this is shoddy journalism IMHO, only sensationalizing it to get viewers and ratings. The news people should first do a complete investigation before putting it on the news, there is probably a lot more than is told. The kid is all shibai, saying that they are good kids....KHON should have asked the kid why they stopped then, at least ask more detailed questions to get the real story.

The guy they interviewed also said HPD patted them down and didn't find one dollar on them. 7 guys and no money at all? No more money for grinds or gas? Even some homeless get one dollar on them. From the video, it was so short, it couldn't be the complete footage because the victim had scrapes on his knee and elbow, black eye, pukas in his head and a fractured wrist. Didn't see that all happening on the video. The guy that shot the video probably going put um on YouTube. More shame for Hawaii. If the guys are innocent as they claim, then, why only tell KHON2? I would think they would go to all the news media that reported this incident. You like clear your name, you go to all the sources, not just one. If people don't read what's on KHON2, they wouldn't know there's the video.

paniolo, if you saw the tape, you can see Adrian Dady get kicked in the head. When you hit the ground, that accounts for the scrapes on knees and elbows. Fractured wrist could occur from blocking a head kick. Punches could explain the black eye. Only speculating, like everyone else. Video showed a few seconds of a 1 on1 fight. Blame HPD or KHON for the edited video. I smell retraction!

the men were NOT HELD. released pending investigation. as usual. headline was either falsely put in or trying to mislead people. or a kaneshiro supporter. in any case these guys should be indicted as a hate crime. victim MUST go to Federal officials cause city won't do anything.
