Westside resident doesn’t feel safe anymore

am very upset with the crime situation on Kauai. I live on the West side and

tonight heard of another( that adds up to 2 murders, 1 assault) female body

found dead. This started months ago. The police say they are ” doing

their best”, are understaffed etc. I think it’s time they started doing

their job. If they can’t handle it, get some people who can. I understand that

they called Honolulu Homicide for the body found today. Maybe together they can

solve these crimes.

I do not feel safe in my little community any more.

This isn’t Los Angeles or New York. We have a nice community here and up until

a few months ago, it was a safe place to walk on the beach. We do not feel safe

any more. Who is this person? or who are these people? The answer is not to

tell all females to stay in their houses and not walk or ride a bicycle or

enjoy the beautiful Hawaiian weather and scenery. I know there have been

assaults on the North Shore too.

Maybe we need a citizen vigilante group.

That’s a scary thought, isn’t it? Please….someone let us know what is going

on with these investigations. We all feel they have been forgotten about.

Maybe by tomorrow there will be some positive news concerning the body

found today. I hope so. Thank you for letting me vent some frustration and


Stephanie Hughes
