  • Re: Bail Maintained for Haʻikū Man Accused in Murder at Kaʻa PointPosted by Rachele D'Amato on 5/5/2016 9:36am

    Mike moved to HI because he loved the land. The culture. The life. He inhaled every ounce of that land with full appreciation and gratitude. He shared it through his passion of painting and art. It is a shame that his life was taken by the people of the land he loved so much. If only we could go back in time.... undo such reactive, rage behavior. :( this has caused pain and loss for so many people... if only they thought about what they were doing before they did it.
    Mike was a great friend of mine. I miss him dearly. Not a day goes by where I don't think of him. I hear his laugh. See his smile. Feel the happy inside he always made me feel. To imagine he lost his life in such a hateful aggressive way, all because of road rage and lack of intelligence and big ego. I sit here with a broken heart. I cry everyday. He was so talented. So loved. I will always remember him for his giant passionate spirit that lived life to the fullest. He lived great!! I love you my friend. <3

    The state prosecutors, police and judges in Hawaii need to start reporting and calling hate crimes out. There is clearly a bigger problem in Hawaii that needs to be addressed.

    Free Healohaomakanaamekai Akahi Pua! Comunity service at the most. colby is another flown in clown! Hard lesson to learn when you pay with your life.

  • Re: Bail Maintained for Haʻikū Man Accused in Murder at Kaʻa PointPosted by nomakelidat on 5/5/2016 4:21am

    If brudda had mind his own business and not gone looking for the guy, none of this would have happened. Remember, the guy supposedly ran the cousin off the road, not him. even if the guys blood alcohol level was high, the cousin should have called police , NOT Pua.

  • Re: Bail Maintained for Haʻikū Man Accused in Murder at Kaʻa PointPosted by Realistic on 5/5/2016 2:57am

    I hate saying that "local-style" means not involving the police, but it is the reality. You know family will react quicker than MPD. Im sure the person who placed that call is regretting ever picking up the phone that day. I've seen my share of guys scrapping. It doesn't immediately stop because someone is on the ground. I feel, if the true intent was to kill, he would've just grabbed an object or weapon and done it from the beginning. Both men were exchanging blows. Had it been the other way around, wouldn't you be just as sympathetic as Mana's family/friends? Both guys were probably awesome ppl...they both made very bad decisions that day.

  • Re: Bail Maintained for Haʻikū Man Accused in Murder at Kaʻa PointPosted by pukui on 5/4/2016 7:16pm

    now that i know how drunk Colby was, i find i care far less what happened to him. mana had NO business killing him or even getting physical but ive lost friends to drunk drivers... 0.212 blood alcohol is insane, just getting behind the wheel in that condition should be considered attempted murder. no excuse for mana to beat him so bad but i get it, especially if Colby was belligerent at the scene. i think many of us would have a hard time holding back. just if it was me, i hope my friends would step in and stop me before i committed murder...

  • Re: Bail Maintained for Haʻikū Man Accused in Murder at Kaʻa PointPosted by Ali B on 5/4/2016 5:32pm

    He was trying to scare him? Wrong place at the wrong time? If it was really about scaring someone, then why punch him a few more times if he was unconcious? Why not break a few Windows instead of inflicting bodily harm? Wrong place? They were called to the scene by a friend who can't fight his own battles. they took it further by hunting him down. If Colby did indeed swerve into another lane,why not call the police and stick him with a DUI........... Everyone one says that mana was so nice,he would give the shirt off his back to help a friend........ I guess helping his friends include murder........ We have a huge problem in the USA,our kids witness and hear the adults around them. They see the anger,disrespect and total disregard for human life all around them..... Yet,we sit and scratch our heads about bullying and internet trolls....... What are we teaching them? The past few days as I see mana's face,my stomach churns. That face was the last thing my friend saw and it makes my skin crawl...........

  • Re: Bail Maintained for Haʻikū Man Accused in Murder at Kaʻa PointPosted by Realistic on 5/4/2016 5:02pm

    Terrible for both sides. This braddah only did what he felt was justified. I'm sure the intent was to scare, not to kill. My family probably would done the same. Although, I dont condone this type of behavior, I still understand. My condolences to both families for their losses.

  • Re: Ban on Wildlife Trafficking, Ivory Sales Passes LegislaturePosted by Mahukaawenui on 5/4/2016 11:02am

    This is so stupid. It's already illegal to have or deal in Ivory other than certified antiques. Now this makes some of my old rifles that are from mid 1800s illegal and unsellable at best. And I feel sorry for the antique dealers that will lose now.
    Another worthless piece of legislation and small business killing regulation. Thanks you legislators I'll remember when it comes voting time

    Thanks CH&S.

  • Re: 258-Acre Hoku Nui Maui Community Includes Plans for Maui HālauPosted by Stand Alone on 5/4/2016 3:50am

    I'm taking this project is a hawaiian in mind project. . Why not house the blooded Hawaiians in the homes that will be built? Or is this project is just going to be another hawaiian spectacle?
    Why not keep it HAWAIIAN?
    I think outside influence will disrupt your intentions. AGAIN......

  • Re: Hawaiʻi Transgender Leaders to Deliver Petition to DOEPosted by Stand Alone on 5/3/2016 10:33am

    The state of hawaii law makers created this. now they need to make laws to ease both side of opinions. if a guy thinks he's a female mentality and wants to engage in women activities. that's his thing.
    But, since the state of hawaii created this they should put down laws like if a guy turns his life to be a women but, still has his thing hanging he should (NOT) be aloud in any women dressing room or restrooms..... but if he had a medical sex change then that's another story.
    The state should start making laws to make this crazy decisions work on all three sides.....
    It'll be interesting to dress up as a woman and go and check out the women's dressing room or bathroom. ...... (((JUST SAYING)))).......

  • Re: Hawaiʻi Transgender Leaders to Deliver Petition to DOEPosted by Stand Alone on 5/3/2016 9:25am

    Have a nice day.......

    You misunderstood me. The expression "Tell me about it" means " I know".

  • Re: Dunkin’ Donuts is Coming to Maui: Plans 15 Restaurants in HawaiʻiPosted by mcmtnstr on 5/3/2016 3:25am

    Dunkin serves the worst coffee anyplace, tastes like burnt mud. Won't fly here in Hawaii where tasty coffee is so widespread. Dunkin is a Chicago thing- and those in the midwest are amongst the least fit in the nation and have, lets say, some odd tastes. As in choosing to live there. Enough said!

  • Re: Maui Water Rights Sign Waving Coincides With Floor VotePosted by payasyougo on 5/3/2016 3:03am

    Get out of the way little people. Big Bussiness has invested Big Money with your State Representatives to get this Bill rolling, and its going to roll right over you!

  • Re: Dunkin’ Donuts is Coming to Maui: Plans 15 Restaurants in HawaiʻiPosted by Stand Alone on 5/2/2016 7:21pm

    Yes, the cops is going to have another place to buy their donuts. ....
