  • Since his face is already hit the news less than 3 hours later, unless he flew in from off island and then after the robbery he went straight to the airport and hopped on a plane (meaning he’s not from the B.I.), I’m betting he’ll be identified by tonight. While Hawaii Island is “big” in size, it is small in that folks know their own neighborhood and community members.

    I hope they catch him ASAP, before he does some other crime that endangers people.

    • “Local” could be any of those by themselves, or any number in combination, or a lot more.

      Tell us how SA gonna know the specifics before the blala is caught. Even then, what, they gonna hire Drumpf or Arpaio to research the birth certificate?

    • Well, I would surmise his demand for kala was spoken in the Pidgeon language or sorts. Haad for a recent transplant to simulate the talk cause they really over do it most times li dat.

  • The term local once applied to a native born citizen as was buddah head applied to a Japanese/American, or others that connote racial slurs without distaste??????
