We likely have the dumbest police department in the country. They just hugely inconvenienced thousands of people, created a traffic nightmare and forced people to leave their homes for hours over what? Nothing! A box with anti police writing on it according to news reports. OMG, this is Hawaii, not Iraq. What were they expecting? A roadside bomb, IED ? They'll say better safe than sorry but it's really just plain alarmist incompetence. They continue to waste taxpayer money like it's an unlimited resource and operate with total disregard for the public that pays their salary. Incompetence seems to be without limit under the current city administration.

Did you happen to hear about the homemade explosives that detonated in Hilo? When you carry the weight and liability of making decisions that could jeopardize the public get back to me. Until then just keep chirping from the peanut gallery.

If it said something about firefighters, the cops wouldn't have done anything.

The package was removed to the Waianae Coast, just like they do to all the other refuse they don't want in East Honolulu.
