  • Wow — looks like we have a crime wave among the criminals, in the illegal gambling dens run by our local mobsters (and obviously protected by the police). At least in the last two incidents no one was shot and killed.

    • agree. On a tiny island, HPD must know where the illegal gambling dens are. Close ’em down please. Too much filth and dirt in public officials out here

      • Who cares. These so called illegal game rooms are peanuts…people playing for a nickel, dime or quarter. pfffttt. If you really want to help and see justice you need to focus on the white collar big time criminals stealing millions. Start with Krook Caldwell, the HDP Chief, etc.

  • Since the three clowns left empty-handed (as well as empty-headed) the headline should read: Gunmen ATTEMPT TO rob illegal game room in Chinatown,.

  • So the “victims” called the police and reported that someone tried to rob them at their game room. Do they then get arrested for running a game room? Kind of like a drug dealer calling the police when someone robs him of his drugs?

      • hahaha, unfortunately the “robbers” like Krook Caldwell are quite successful unlike these robbers. The voters here are literally getting pick-pocketed right in front of their face and keep praising Krook as he just digs in for another round of pulling money out of everyone’s wallet to fund his illegal rail gamble.
