Let's see, he demanded money. That makes it robbery, not theft.

When will our streets, parks, and beaches be safe again? Incidents that were once rare are now everyday occurrences. The Aloha State is becoming the state for the homeless and criminals.

saveparadise: George Will wrote an excellent article on crime. It all starts with what people think are petty traffic items, run a red light, run a stop sign, don't signal a turn, run your dog in the "no dogs" Park, throw you trash on the road, leave your large soft drink container on the bench next to the waste container--no enforcement. Laws? They are only as good as the government wants them to be. When we have Obama here or, remember the OPEC? We had police all over the place, but in normal times--we all see the traffic violations--people get away with it and then it's the next step--robberies. And, the police--I live on Hobron Lane--the HPD has their donuts at the Food Pantry--no parking signs--they don't apply when you're donut feeding. They also jay walk over there. AND, ever watch a HPD made a turn--they should put turn signals in those cars!! Bitter, yes, when I think what they get paid--$4 an hour 24/7 365 a year for ?????

Time to get tough and do what is right not what is easy. Stop feeding the pigeons or you get more pigeons. Remember when the Zoo was pretty much the only place you saw pigeons. Just like Aala Park was one of a few places you saw homeless. Stop feeding them.
