UH does not have security cameras NOR an off-duty HPD officer hired to patrol the campus at night. UH's budget is in the hundreds of millions of dollars, and can afford paying a previous head coach over $1 million per year, an offensive coordinator over $100,000 and not work one day at UH, etc. but UH cannot find the money nor work out an agreement with the City and HPD to hire an off duty HPD officer to patrol UH Manoa at night. The public pays HPD officers to stand around a a road construction site basically doing nothing but talk on their cell phone making personal calls and pay HPD officers 24 hours a day, even when they are sleeping or going to the bathroom, but we cannot have an off-duty HPD officer to protect UH students from se xual predators, thieves and punks. What is even WORSE is the story said that HPD is the one that contacted UH campus security of the se xual assault at Sakamaki Hall. I don't blame these students as many perform research or study at the libraries at night then must walk across campus at night to get to their car or dorm located in the lower campus area across from Dole St.

You know, this kind of thing has been happening with alarming frequency in the University area the past few years. In spite of that, UH doesn't seem to be spurred to be pro-active in preventing/discouraging continuing sexual assaults. Obviously, the supposed measures they're taking are ineffective. What is it going to take to make the Highly Paid suits at UH give this problem the proper attention it deserves?

I'm working on organizing a group of volunteers to patrol the campus at night. This group will be comprised of students, community members, representatives from local businesses and even a few off duty law enforcement. Anyone interested in joining the group?
