Boy, these areas in town are falling apart quicker than you can say "Waianae". Need to clean the crime up big time in town.

Unless you can provide statistics to say there is more crime than there was previously, things aren't "falling apart", since that would assume things were better before.

Are you insane? To shoot someone that has no weapon and kill him is murder. To go through all the hassles of the Police, prosecutors, Lawyers, and possibly sued, AND possibly found guilty and go to prison, is an insane course to take. Pity

If you reasonably feared death or bodily harm it's self defense. Also you don't know he doesn't have a weapon, he could have a knife in his pocket and by the time he's close to you it's too late. Add to the fact that someone broke into your home would further bolster your case. I don't believe Hawaii has a "castle doctrine" like some other states but I don't think you'd be guilty of murder for killing someone breaking into your home. Maybe manslaughter but a good chance you wouldn't be charged. That said, you never know what a jury will think. But I'd rather kill someone than risk being attacked and suffer serious injury or death.

The homeless and crime should be priority issues for our politicians. These issues affect quality of life for all. You have to come out of your ivory towers in Hawaii Kai and Mariners Ridge so you can smell the coffee where the commoners reside.
