Attractive nuisances entices thieves to commit crimes. There ought be a law against anyone who leaves their belongings in a fashion that enable light-fingered to help themselves. There are some amongst us that have not progressed beyond the hunter/gathers stage in human evolution. Targets of opportunity created by unsuspecting individuals are a bane to the weak of mind. These are observations of the Waikiki Beach community.

Wait a minute! You're saying it's the VICTIM'S fault for getting ripped off because he left his bag on the beach?? Give me a break! What was he supposed to do: take his belongings out into the water with him??? Whatever happened to INTEGRITY, HONESTY, and the ever-quoted "Aloha Spirit"?? This homeless sleeze bag needs to be drawn and quartered, and then have his hands smashed with a hammer for helping himself to something that clearly wasn't his. Your assertion that the thief's actions should be condoned and expected because the victim left an "attractive nuisance" to tempt him is absolutely ridiculous, and shows an irresponsible tendency on your part to shift blame to others.

My sentiments, exactly. People do have a responsibility to not be easy victims, though. Simply leaving a bag unattended while in the water is just not wise. If you are going to spend time in the water, or by the shore, be sure to bring along another person willing to watch over the bag. But if no one is available, you are taking a risk. Maybe people should ask the city and county to provide a locker system where they can lock their things. It would require a quarter to store your belongings. When you are done you simply insert the key back into the locker and be off with your things. Of course the city would need to state that it is not responsible for anything that is stored in their lockers. Still, that is better than leaving your bag unattended. It would help to reduce the criminals waiting to catch an unsuspecting victim leaving a bag on the beach.

I'd rather wait to catch an unsuspecting THIEF and deliver some swift frontier justice. Honest and trusting people should not have to alter their lives and habits to accommodate the opportunistic predatory behavior of low-life maggots.

What is interesting about this article is that the suspect has been named. These low lives should be named and thus shamed for their actions. Maybe their families will find out about their behavior and the whole neighborhood will be alert to him.
