  • Cops do their job and prosecutor, Kaneshiro let’s em out. Released pending investigation for this guy and most he’ll get, IF he’s brought to court is probation.

    • Do you truly know how the judicial system works? There are a lot of moving parts, and many people involved. How is it that you believe Kaneshiro is the one who “let’s em out” as you say? Do you know the part that is played by the police, probation office, judges, intake service center, defense counsel and others? Do you know, specifically, what each agency or person is responsible for doing? I’m not a big fan of Kaneshiro, but it’s not him in particular that has the authority to “let em out”. Your brush is too wide and you paint too broad and simplistic a picture. Use some finesse, and some knowledge. But I am impressed by your ability to see the future and how you know that this person will get probation.

      • Yes btaim, you are correct. It’s important to get the suspect into the system quickly. Generally a suspect can be held for 24 hrs without charges but then must be released. RPI gives the Police the time they need to present the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney a case that can move on through the system. Otherwise, the Intake Deputy Prosecutor has no recourse but to decline.
