Police say the the child, who was being held by her mother at the time of the argument, sustained the injury as a result of the struggle, but did not specify the extent of injuries.

  • whathappened

    no racial comments on this one ?

    • Jake

      I see no mention of murder, rape, incest or pedaphilia. So no….no mention of “race.”

  • Brlfsp

    Wow, what kind of illegal psychotropic drugs would be involved in a situation like that?

    • your shadow

      You should know the way you’re posting is like you’re on it now. Why don’t you shut the f up.

      • Brlfsp

        If I ever need you to restrict my First Amendment constitutional right to freedom of speech, I’ll let you know, little man.

        • ye of smallmind

          nowhere in the Constitution does it give you the right to slander or libel a person.

          • Brlfsp

            smallmind, nowhere in the Constitution does it give you the right to molest under aged male pygmy goats either. What’s your point?

          • ye of smallmind

            wow. your poor goats.

  • lina

    I personally KNOW the mother of this baby, and there is NO WAY she’d ever hurt her daughter INTENTIONALLY. Smh.

    • Brlfsp

      If you really know the mother of this baby, then tell us what illegal drugs were involved in this situation.

      • your shadow

        There you go again, instigating the subject. Again I’ll tell you get a life. You’re such a b@stard. They should ban you from posting. You’re a idiot.

        • Brlfsp

          You’re AN idiot. And no, it is actually the two felons pictured above who “instigated the subject”. Then Maui News reported it, and the rest of us are now discussing it on a…wait for it…discussion forum. If you can’t handle, then turn that frown upside down and go back to wherever you came from.

          • ye of smallmind

            wow. psychic and perfect…it must be lonely being you.

      • take a chillpill

        right after u tell us what prescription anti-psychotic drugs u forgot to take this morning.

    • SOSAD

      You two should be put in Jail for Life. If not he male needs chemical castration and the females needs to be ordered to tie her tubes. What they did to this child is horrific. If you claim to KNOW the woman then something is wrong and you may have contributed to allowing this to happen. The woman is clearly on METH. She and her BF and wat occurred to that baby is horrific. I watched the child come into the E.R and it was the saddest thing ever. People stop acting IGNORANT and turning blind eyes to inadequate parenting and drug use. It does no good.

      • Brlfsp

        And there you have it. SOSAD was actually there, and suspects cr@ppy parenting and illegal drug use are involved.

        • guest

          SOSAD you are the same person talking to yourself.

          • Brlfsp

            Wrong again, smallmind. I have no idea who SOSAD is.

          • guest

            Sure, sure, sure. Its called a mirror, look into it.

          • Brlfsp

            Lol, I wouldn’t bet anything you couldn’t afford to lose on that one.

  • Kahea N Lukes

    Who cares what drugs. What happens to this poor baby!

    • Brlfsp

      Only druggies don’t care about what drugs were involved in the horrific injuries to this precious little gift from God.

      • fasi u

        Hey dumbass How know drugs were involved….If u don’t know the story then shut da hell up…..young people fight 4 no reason at all. It’s just sad dat da baby was involved….prayers go out to the baby who is in Honolulu right now.

        • Brlfsp

          If you attended public schools, I’d like to file felony theft charges against you for my tax dollars.

          • Troller101

            I know exactly who you are. I knew you sounded familiar and now I know for a fact. GET A F’N LIFE 101. I still don’t like you for saying what you said about my good friends in their crash articles. Your a loser, saying the same stuff over and over again, sheez, and I thought everyone here got rid of you. Guess your back with a different name but your same lines, instigating, checking peoples backrounds? all for what? what you trying for prove? Brlfsp or better known as 101 has no life or friends that’s why he comes on here to try win arguments with everyone kuz that makes him feel better about being a mistake child. (** sentence redacted due to profanity -Ed. **). Do everyone a favor and get a life or a girlfriend or something if you even can and BEAT IT AND NO COME BACK!!!!

    • guest

      Agreed. Nowhere in the article does it mention drugs were involved. One would think that if they were, the police would have happily added that to the list of charges. What is an issue is babies having babies. Without the strong support of a stable ohana it is difficult at best for young people to raise a child. Add to that any anger issues or emotional problems…it is a complicated thing as old as time. The violence does need to be punished. However, ‘what will become of the poor baby’ is the question to ask.

      • Brlfsp

        If it looks like a druggie duck, and it walks like a druggie duck, and it quacks like a druggie duck, it’s a druggie duck.

        • guest

          You mean like you? I believe that is called ‘PROJECTION’, my dear. Why don’t you spend the rest of the evening on some serious reflection. You also seem to have an unhealthy obsession with anthropomorphism. When you finish refilling your anti-psychotic prescription, you may want to get the beastiality thing checked out. Just a suggestion, try not to flip out again.

      • Brlfsp

        These two violent felons are not “babies having babies”. They have both been adults for several years.

        It does not require “the strong support of a stable ohana” for young people to raise a child- married teenagers who don’t use illegal drugs have been doing it quite successfully for thousands of years.

        And the responsibility for raising a child is not spread out in some nebulous fashion over countless shirt-tail relatives, leaving no one accountable. The responsibility for raising a child belongs to only two people- it rests squarely on the shoulders of the child’s father and the child’s mother.

        • guest

          Well I do apologise. I did not realise who I was talking to. Your ohana has obviously shunned you. That is sad and explains so much of your gibberish. By the by, you know who else thinks 20yrs old is ancient?? A pedo.

  • Brlfsp

    There are pictures on his facebook page of Nakama all phagged out in pseudo gang attire, photos that appear to be of him using illegal drugs, brass knuckles, and a photo of him holding a semiautomatic handgun, which is a felony because he’s under 21.

    • Brlfsp

      There are also photos on his facebook page of Washington wearing pseudo gang attire pointing what appears to be the same semiautomatic handgun.

      • Brlfsp

        Such as this:

  • Pakololo

    I went to school with nakama

    • Brlfsp

      I would believe that. I’d believe that WHEREVER Nakama goes, it would be likely to find “Pakalolo” there. “Pakalolo” appears to be a major influence on Nakama.

  • Brlfsp

    Nakama’s facebook page also indicates that he’s a fan of 6’2″ 234 pound street-fighting felon Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson, the guy who’s only street fight loss was when he got beat like a piñata by off-duty Boston Massachusetts police officer Sean “The Cannon” Gannon.

    • Your shadow

      Sometimes your comments are so out of it on this post. But, you’ve convince me that you are true on this matter. So, I apologize to you on my comments…… Have a nice day. So sad for the baby. Hoping for a good recovery and a fast one for the baby….. And I agree with you about the parents.

  • unknown

    Never mind all the drug comments! If I see any of these two in the streets, Im gonna beat them , so they know how that innocent baby felt!!! Acting like he a gang banga!

  • Kaui

    i for myself know this isn’t the first time…generally speaking…there is a lot of “Parents” that fight. that experiences violence….

  • Brlfsp

    Model citizens:

    • think they bad””””” LoL

      I guess that’s what they want to do. Legalized marijuana, so there’s more stupid people like this. More hurt…..

      • Brlfsp

        Yup. And it would appear that marijuana is not a “victimless” crime after all.

  • Brlfsp

    Well, these photos (click on the “see more” below) would seem to answer any questions about illegal drug and alcohol use:

    • Brlfsp

      Parents of the year, eh?
