Convicted felon suspected in death of Waipahu infant

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 12:46 p.m. HST, May 16, 2013

A 36-year-old Waipahu man, with past convictions for abuse of a family member, is being investigated in the death of a six-week-old boy.

The baby was found unresponsive at a Waipahu home around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, a police report said.

The Medical Examiner’s Office identified the infant as Gabriel Mambrere of Waipahu.

The cause of death was pending further investigation, the Medical Examiner’s Office said.

No other details were released.

The suspect was arrested at the police station Wednesday night on suspicion of second-degree murder.

Court records show that the suspect was convicted three times for misdemeanor offenses in 2001. The suspect also has two felony convictions — for burglary in 2000 and theft in 2003.

He may have been convicted of other crimes; however, he has not yet been charged for this one. He's only being investigated. Consider this: imagine if you were being investigated for having killed a child, but were never charged and in fact, were cleared by the police. The media releasing your name as being someone merely investigated is enough to ruin your reputation forever, especially since nothing posted on the internet dies, regardless of your innocence. This is a long-standing journalistic tradition, and in keeping with our nation's assumption that everyone is presumed innocent of crimes until proven otherwise.

Seriously? Convictions for burglary and theft is just as bad as one for murdering an infant? I guess we need the death penalty for everything.

Another one that should have been locked up for a long time, but was let out because of our judicial system and overcrowded prisons and liberal lawyers at the ACLU who always cry about prisoners rights.
