Kaua’i – What is going on?

As a concerned senior citizen I am finding it hard to understand what is going

on here on our beautiful island.

I have lived here for 20 plus years,

paying my taxes, serving the community in various positions at county and state

levels attempting to be an active and concerned individual on Kaua’i. With the

recent murders and attacks on women we have to get more involved in just what

is happening to you and to me and our family.

Several weeks ago while out

for an early evening walk, my daughter and I were accosted on a public street

by an extremely dangerous and angry man who apparently mistook us for someone

who had called the police on his barking dog. He was full of nothing but poor

manners and a mouth of four-letter words telling us “xxx-ooo haoles” to go


Well, since this is and has been my home, I informed him of this

along with asking him if he would kindly watch his use of the letter words. I

wasn’t too sure what might develop so I took out my cell phone and informed

this individual, who claimed he was a 100 percent Hawaiian, that I was calling

the police. He did retreat to his parked pick-up truck in the middle of the

street still shouting nasty words at us.

Sure, he had too much to drink and

most likely was high on drugs. But the fact remains he appeared mad enough to

kill and this was all directed at my daughter and myself. What might have

happened if this was my daughter alone – if I had not informed him I had had

enough and was calling the police? Sure I did file a complaint with the police

but I guess this is going on now and I guess their hands are tied unless they

are on the spot (when the incident occurs).

As a combat veteran of two

major wars, I find myself in the position of once again having to have means to

protect my family when I take my walks. I might say this is the first time

anything of this nature has happened to us in all these years.


individual is a threat to society and mankind. I also believe that he would not

be an individual the various Hawaiian groups seeking their rights would want on

their side as he is a walking time bomb waiting to blow everyone to bits who

crosses his path. As I hope the police and FBI get the killer of these women

soon I wish they might put a saddle on this guy and his anger and hate for

“haoles.” I don’t believe we need this on Kaua’i.
