  • He’s not homeless anymore & is going to be well taken care of thanks to Hawaii taxpayers. The homeless know the game. Rob a bank, steal or damage property in the felony degree & go to jail for a while. After they get released, do the crime again and go back to jail through the revolving door.

    • I hope the courts realize that assault on a police officer is a very serious charge. Being soft on homeless crime is not garnering Hawaii any favorable press or acceptance.
