An 18-year-old Kapalama man was charged Thursday with murdering an 83-year-old homeless man in Chinatown last week.

R.J. Marsolo was charged with second-degree murder and third-degree assault. His bail was set $500,000.

Mamerto "Eddie" Semana died Dec. 5. He was found unconscious in Chinatown with head injuries a day earlier.

The Medical Examiner's Office said Semana died from blunt force injuries to his head.

What was the reason kid! My life growing up in Honolulu was probably worse than yours, but I would never do anything like what you did.

Like I've been saying for the past week--there is a street gang of teens and twenty-year olds who roam Chinatown--picking fights with homeless individuals. Whether or not this young man was part of this street gang, I'm not 100% certain. As far as motive--it still makes no sense why a street gang would do this.

Who are the parents of this guy? They clearly failed as raising children. The public not only needs to be protected from criminals such as him but also needs to be aware of who molded the criminal. At age 18 the parents certainly bear a large portion of the responsibility in creating this criminal.
