  • Another “transient” incident followed by “catch and release”. I believe we attract more undesirable transients due to the aforementioned. I’m not just referring to those who are transient vagrants. How many are in the Community with outstanding bench warrants and continue to break the law…it’s not just to the local population. Does it ever catch up…nope, either they continue to live in the Community and go thru the revolving door of “catch and release” or simply move on. Sad…

  • If these homeless people don’t want the medical let them go. Stop wasting our tax money. Put them on a matson container and shop them away.

  • Another weekly glitch for HPD. If these officers can’t watch & secure a prisoner I would hate to imagine how they handle a real case. Makes me think the case would be squashed so the officer wouldn’t have to write a report.
